Markus Levy is president of EEMBC, which he founded in April 1997. As president, he manages the business, marketing, press relations, member logistics, and supervision of technical development. Mr. Levy is also president of the Multicore Association, which he co-founded in 2005.
In addition, Mr. Levy chairs the IoT Developers Conference. He was previously founder and chairman of the Multicore Developers Conference, a senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR, and an editor at EDN magazine, focusing in both roles on processors for the embedded industry.
Mr. Levy began his career in the semiconductor industry at Intel Corporation, where he served as both a senior applications engineer and customer training specialist for Intel's microprocessor and flash memory products. He is the co-author of Designing with Flash Memory, the one and only technical book on this subject, and received several patents while at Intel for his ideas related to flash memory architecture and usage as a disk drive alternative.
EEMBC Director of Software Engineering
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.
