Tom Hackenberg covers a broad scope of processors ranging from microcontrollers (MCU) and microprocessors (MPU), to digital signal processors (DSP) and logic components.
Aside from his extensive coverage of components, Tom provides authoritative analysis on deeply embedded systems, backed by abundant knowledge and years of experience in the field. His analysis extends to processor technology trends such as embedded vision, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, IoT, sensor fusion, smart devices, and embedded security.
As part of his scope of research, Tom authors a detailed tracking service for MCUs while also delivering custom reports on processors for the automotive, telecommunications, and industrial markets. Additionally, he supports core research services such as the Competitive Landscape Tool and Application Market Forecast Tool.
Providing a consistent and reliable voice on embedded processing since 2006, Tom’s expertise is also demonstrable across all processor components, including CPU, GPU, MPU, MCU, ASIC and ASSP, FPGA, and configurable processors.
Tom has a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering, specializing in processors and FPGA, from the University of Texas at Austin.
