About Us

Company Background

Dr. Carrion Schaefer has over 20 years of academic and industrial experience in the design of hardware systems, FPGA and ASICs as well as in the development of commercial HLS tools. From 2007 to 2012 he was a member of the NEC teams that developed NEC's HLS tool CyberWorkbench.

Dr. Carrion Schaefer also served multiple years at OSCI's (now Accellera's) SystemC synthesizable subset working group as one of the members drafting the latests draft (version 1.3).

Dr. Carrion Schaefer, holds a Ph.D. from The University of Birmingham, UK and an MBA from McGill University, Canada. He currently serves as associate Professor at The University of Texas at Dallas at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) where he has established the Design and Reconfigurable Computing Laboratory (DARClab).
