I'm a scientific research assistant and student in the master program at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany.
After a basic education in computer science, I specialized in computer engineering, especially in FPGA designing with Xilinx ISE, Xilinx Vivado and Altera Quartus-II as well in simulation and verification of such implemented designs. While studding in the master program, I got involved in giving lectures and labs on hardware design, too.
My first big project was a streaming optimized controller for the Serial-ATA protocol. One major goal of this controller was to be platform independent in means of FPGA device, FPGA family, FPGA vendor and even tool chain vendor independability. The second project was a Gigabit-Ethernet stack for UDP/IPv4/IPv6, which had the same goals as before.
My major commitment now focuses on streaming optimized and platform independent hardware modules, which are provided open source on GitHub, named PoC -Library. A second commitment is my PicoBlaze -Library, an extension to the PicoBlaze processor written by Ken Chapman. This library provides a System-on-Chip ecosystem for the PicoBlaze.
