Brings 20 years experience in systems architecture working for high-volume leaders such as Intel and Sun Microsystems
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Aug. 8, 2016 -- Flex Logix Technologies, Inc., the leading developer of reconfigurable RTL IP cores and software, today announced that Tony Kozaczuk has been hired as the company's new director of solutions architecture. As an experienced senior systems architect with an extensive history of defining and delivering industry leading volume computer products for multiple market segments, Kozaczuk will be responsible for leading the development of the Flex Logix architecture solutions for MCUs and SoCs.
"As the momentum for our EFLX IP platform continues to grow, Tony's technical leadership will be critical given his experience driving successful programs at industry-leaders Intel and Sun," said Geoff Tate, CEO and co-founder of Flex Logix. "Customers clearly recognize the significant cost and time-to-market advantages of using reconfigurable RTL in chip designs, but many ask for application examples and assistance in modifying their architecture for optimum results. We are excited to leverage Tony's skills as we continue expanding our technology platform into new markets."
With more than 20 years experience as a senior systems architect, Kozaczuk has a proven track record of helping to bring high-volume products to market successfully. With extensive experience in SoC high-level, board level, systems integration and enclosures, Kozaczuk has been a technical leader and project manager of cross functional and cross geo teams for large, high-volume publicly-held companies. Prior to joining Flex Logix, Kozaczuk spent 10 years at Intel Corporation where he most recently was the lead systems architect for Intel's 7th generation Core CPU (Kaby Lake.) In this role, Kozaczuk was responsible for all aspects of system architecture, end-to-end, from definition to execution and under his leadership, Intel successfully released the Kaby Lake CPU to market on time. Prior to working at Intel, Kozaczuk worked for 10 years at Sun Microsystems in a variety of roles such as I/O architect, senior manager, and systems architect. Kozaczuk received a BSEE from San Francisco State University and currently has more than six patents granted/pending.
"The technology Flex Logix has developed has the potential to change how chips are designed today and in the future," said Kozaczuk. "I am excited to become a part of a team delivering such unique industry innovation, backed by an impressive management team. I look forward to leveraging my technical systems expertise to accelerate new applications and solutions for the technology."
Kozaczuk will build a team to support customers and is currently recruiting for an FAE with front-end design experience to join this quarter. Additional FAEs will be added in the future as customer demand continues to grow.
