Background

Theodore G. Scardamalia
Consultant

With an extensive technical and technology background, I have consistently delivered products with minimal resources in both dollars and manpower.  Demonstrating leadership and communication skills in large corporations, fast growing companies and start-up companies with my technical and management work in:

  • ASIC chip development
  • Microprocessor development
  • High performance computational and storage systems (hardware and software)
  • Business planning
  • Product cost analysis
  • Website/Database design and implementation

Times N Systems was a venture capital backed start-up company. I raised $15.6M in equity funding and $5M in debt financing. In addition, I established the development, finance, marketing and sales, manufacturing, and systems tests and departments.

 While leading the Times N development team, the company delivered:

  • Multiple PCBs designs
  • Multiple FPGA designs
  • 1.5M lines of OS level code
  • Filed 19 patents, 7 issued

My efforts earned recognition from a top accounting firm, being nominated for 2000 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year candidate.  Under his leadership, Times N Systems, Inc. was awarded second place for the KPMG 2000 Product of the Year.

Prior to co-founding Times N Systems, I had a 24-year career with IBM in semiconductor chip and computer systems development. Additionally, I directed a 75 person design team across 2 labs, that defined, designed, verified and released the CPU chip set for the Low End RS/6000 workstation.  I also negotiated common signal processing requirements with 5 world-wide development laboratories.

While at Cadence Design Systems, I managed the Austin Design Center that was part of Cadence’s Design Services Group.  During this time he directed a 24 person team, from 7 different contract companies, to implement a fully integrated MPEG2 video/audio decoder chip

Rounding out my experience, I lead a team of Product Analyst. This team analyzed high volume consumer electronic product and provided reports to a variety of clients. As an individual contributor, I developed the algorithms used to estimate the product cost to manufacture.

In addition to my professional career, I also worked with numerous charitable organizations.  I served on the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement as well Marywood, a family planning and adoption center. At Marywood I served the Board as both a member and as President.  His community service has lead to local TV and newspaper coverage.
