Dr Nigel Greer RF/Analog IC Designer

introduction | education | employment | projects | circuit design | CAD | contact


In May 2006 I founded West Silicon, a limited company offering expertise in the design of RF and analog integrated circuits.

I have 30 years of industrial experience gained working for

  • Wolfson Microelectronics,
  • Dialog Semiconductor,
  • Philips Semiconductors,
  • Parthus Technologies (now Ceva)
  • Stepmind and
  • West Silicon.

    I have worked in most areas of RF and analog circuit design in CMOS and BiCMOS technology, in particular:

  • Radio communication transceivers: EDGE, GSM, DECT,...,
  • PLLs, frequency synthesizers (integer and fractional N),
  • switched capacitor circuits: filters, ADCs, DACs, sigma-delta modulators,
  • continuous time filters: gm-C and active-RC.

    I also develop tools to improve the speed and quality of product development, mostly using C++, PHP and MySQL.

    I am a fluent speaker of both German and French, having lived with my family near Stuttgart for 3 years, and in Normandy for the last 24 years.
