|Peter Torelli |
Director of Software Engineering, EEMBC
While studying engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Peter began his career as an intern at Intel in 1993 writing flash memory file-systems. After graduating he joined Intel full-time and during his 20 years he worked as desktop and mobile microprocessor architect, wrote advanced programs to validate hardware performance on chipsets and graphics, invented switch-level power simulation algorithms for pre-silicon CPU power estimation, and led digital circuit teams to deploy novel low-power CPU design techniques.
His most significant contributions involved driving power convergence for the Larrabee HPC product line, and enabling power awareness across foundry design automation tools. In early 2014, Peter left Intel to work with Portland-area startups writing software and building hardware in diverse areas such as IoT wearables and fashion-technology.
