Associates: Andrew Chilcott, BEng(Hons)
Andrew then moved into the telecommunications sector, first working on MoD military radio systems and then in the 3G industry where he helped develop a state of the art adaptive predistortion amplifer with efficiency rates unheard of at the time. It was during this time that Andrew started to assume team leader and management roles.
After the dot com crash and decline of the telecoms industry Andrew joined the Security and Access Control market, working for the UK leader - Group4 Technology. He developed RFID and Biometric security systems which were deployed in the Pentagon as well as other high security sites.
Another career change saw Andrew getting involved in the emerging Digital TV industry. He joined a market leading middleware provider where he was able to leverage his embedded skills by providing ports of the middleware to a number of high profile semiconductor vendors and mainstream consumer electronic manufacturers such as Philips, Panasonic, JVC, Toshiba and ST Microelectronics. He was instrumental in introducing the first commercial Linux based PVR to the UK market, marking the end of bespoke operating systems tied to specific STB architectures.
