Menno Lindwer is leading GML’s hardware development department, which includes developing neuromorphic and neural network processors. Prior to joining GML, Menno was Processor Technology Architect, Engineering Manager, and Program Manager at Intel.
He received his M.sc from Twente University and his PDEng from Eindhoven University in 1993. Since then, he studied asynchronous devices, database matching technology, 3D graphics renderers, media processor design, and AI processors. In 1995, he joined Philips Research, working on the design of Java and Media processors. In 2002, he was part of the team that started up Silicon Hive. He was director of product management for Silicon Hive’s HiveLogic parallel processing platform. Silicon Hive was acquired by Intel in February 2011. At Intel, Menno led teams that worked on processor construction tools and optimizing auto-targeting compilers. Also, Menno led Intel's activities in several EU projects.
Menno’s work has led to over 30 scientific articles and patent publications (seven patents currently assigned in the US). His interests include low-power computing systems, neuromorphic and neural network processors, and spatial compilers. Menno served on the executive committee and technical program committees of the DATE conference. He co-authored several articles on Ambient Intelligence at DATE, on media processing at IEEE ISM, GSPX, on compiler technology in IJPP, and on design space exploration for multi-ASIP systems.
