Hi, My name is Akos Pasztor.

I'm an embedded systems engineer. I design embedded hardware, including analog, digial and mixed-signal circuits and printed circuit boards. I also develop embedded software mainly for microcontrollers. My main focuses include ultra-low power system design, hard and firm real-time systems, fail-safe system design and more. I hold a master's degree in electrical engineering from ETH Zürich, Switzerland.

Bio

My attraction to informatics and electronics showed when I was at the age of 3. So my father wrote me a software to learn the letters, numbers and basic calculations. By the time I started the elementary school, I had known how to use a keyboard and how to type words on it.

At the age of 10 I received a LEGO Mindstorms kit for Christmas. That was a huge step, because I learned how to build things up from small parts and the best part was, that I could program them to do what I want. I got acquainted with the basics of microcontrollers, and how to attach the peripherals (sensors & motors) to it. At that time I learned the importance of the connection between hardware and software. During high school I learned high-level programming languages, and I decided to continue my studies at the Budapest University of Technologies. Because of my fondness of programming and building hardware at the same time, I chose the faculty of electrical engineering.

Although I had already been good at programming, I came to the university with little knowledge in electronics. To fill the gap, I decided to create projects on my own to deepen my knowledge and obtain practical experience in electronics & embedded systems. Since then, I've been designing hardware and writing embedded software for various applications.

In January 2015, I have finished my B.Sc. degree with the qualification of “Excellent with Highest Honours” in Electrical Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary’s top ranked technical university. Later that year, I got admitted to ETH Zürich which is among the top universities around the world. I received my master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from ETH Zürich in 2018.

In my freetime (not so much unfortunately...) I like doing sports e.g. swimming, judo, snowboarding etc.. or just relax. One of my favorite hobbies is driving. I love cars, so I try to drive as much as I can.

Acknowledgements

I would like to thank everyone who supported and supports me throughout my projects. I can truly say that electrical engineering is a very tough profession. You have to put everything you've got into it, and a bit more. Learning from papers is not enough, you have to do it in practice.

I am extremely grateful that I could continue my studies and receive my master's degree at ETH Zürich which is among the top universities all around the world. I am also grateful that I could earn my BSc. degree at Budapest University of Technologies which is the best technical university in Hungary.

I would like to express my gratitude towards the SeaSoft Ltd. for all the practical, technical and financial support.
