Marco Martins

Research Engineer
Systems Engineering

Electrical Engineer – Marco Martins graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon. He has worked in the semiconductor industry (ChipIdea, Silicon Labs) as a Test Engineer / Application Engineer for 12 years and currently belongs to INL’s staff of engineers performing Application Engineer functions since 2012. He works actively in the design and development of electronic and software systems from concept to production with special emphasis on the design of very low noise analog systems for signal conditioning in the hardware area, software development for signal processing as well as the integration of embedded systems.
