About me.jpg

I'm an embedded systems designer

My strong passion for the subject pushed me, over the course of my ultra-decade career, to take care of the subject at 360 degrees:

  • Schematic design
  • PCB layout
  • 3D modelling
  • Firmware development
  • Test equipment development
  • Conduction of certification

In recent years I deal with IoT wireless applications, designing modules and devices based on the main wireless technologies: NB-IoT, Sigfox, LoRa / LoRaWAN, BLE, Thread, Zigbee, NFC, etc.

Some of my recent designs


  • Schematic CAD: Autodesk Eagle, Orcad CIS, Altium
  • PCB Layout: Autodesk Eagle
  • 2D/3D: QCad, Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Languages: C, C++, Java, Python
  • OS: Linux, FreeRTOS, uCOS-II
  • IDE: Eclipse and IDEs available from MCU manufacturers


As founder and manager of small start-ups I had the opportunity and the need to cover other roles besides engineering. I dealt with purchasing, sales, production supervision (third-part companies), testing and conduction of the certifications (third-part labs).


Over the years I have built a vast international network of relationships, collaborating with the most important hi-tech electronic companies, such as Arrow Electronics, STMicroelectronics, Analog Devices, Microchip, NXP, Telit, Bosch Sensortec, Sigfox, Cisco Systems, Arduino and others.


I had the opportunity to work in many different sectors: power systems for satellites, radars for fixed wing, medical (radiology), industrial weighing systems, zootechnics, touch screen terminals, DSLAM, routers, M2M and wireless IoT.


I’m a member of Mensa Italia and the Sigfox Ambassador for Switzerland and Italy
