Swamy and Friends

Recently, there was an article in Hindustan Times (a leading Indian Newspaper) titled “Swamy and Friends”.  It is about my long time friends and colleagues Narayana and Geethesh. 

Our friendship goes back 15 years when we were neighbors in Mysore in the late nineties.  Narayana was working as a Data Entry Operator in Central Excise of India; Geethesh was the Head of Department of the Electronics in a very small Polytechnic.  Narayana had a very strong logical mind which made him a great programmer, but absolutely no electronics background.  Geethesh being a lecturer had a strong hardware background.  During a leisurely conversation, I suggested them to combine their talents and take part in the Circuit Cellar Design contest.  Their combination clicked and they won Honorary Excellence in their very first contest.  There was no stopping them after that.  They became PSoC consultants and then joined Cypress India as the first PSoC Applications Engineers - now the PSoC Applications team is 20+ strong.  

From a guy who had absolutely no electronics background - he knew nothing about resistors, capacitors, voltage and currents - today Narayana is an expert in capacitive sensing.  He talks about Delta Sigma modulators, PRS generators, EMI etc, holds a patent for implementing a matrix keypad with minimum number of sensors and plans to file a few more.  He is my one stop for reference for capacitive sensing.  Geethesh today is part of the Technical support team leading a team of 6 engineers and is a mentor who trains and guides the young engineers in the team.  I attribute their success to their hard work, sincerity and perseverance and am proud to be their friend.  

Thank you PSoC for bringing us together!!
