CSS has a great staff of engineers, but since they are often working "behind the scenes" they may not be well known outside the company. This article begins a series of articles/interviews titled "The Engineers of CSS" which will hopefully help everyone to know them much better.
Ravi Ananth is a newcomer to CSS as he just joined us this year in January. He comes to CSS with strong technical and management experience in semiconductor design. Ravi is an experienced analog IC designer who has worked in both the medical device and consumer electronics industry.
He most recently worked at a medical device start-up firm that was acquired by Boston Scientific. Previously he held senior positions as both a designer and manager at the Alfred Mann Foundation and as Director of Electrical Engineering at the Alfred Mann Institute at the University of Southern California.
He started his career with IBM where he worked on IrDA (infrared communication links) devices with IBM Research in New York. Ravi holds 7 international patents, 4 pending patents and numerous publications.
Ravi holds a Master of Applied Science degree in Electrical/Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada.
