Cameron Hill
Founder & CEO

Cameron received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2020 with a dissertation regarding the design and implementation of high linearity, high switching bandwidth SOI CMOS switches.  This was followed by a postdoc for one year also at UCSB to expand on remaining questions surrounding high linearity switches and their applications to wide-band microwave components.  Based on the success of these designs, Cameron was named a 2021 Activate Entrepreneurship fellow – an award funded by DARPA to support the transition of DARPA sponsored university research to the commercial space.

Giuseppe Michetti

Giuseppe received his Ph.D. from Northeastern University in 2022. His research focused on reconfigurable MEMs filters funded by DARPA. At Northeastern he published more than 30 papers on the topic. Since graduating he has moved to dedicated RFIC design and joined Lintrinsic to lead the development of high linearity mixers, switches and drivers. Google Scholar

James F. Buckwalter
Academic Co-Founder

Jim Buckwalter has been a professor of electrical engineering at UCSB since 2015.  With nearly 250 publications to his name, Jim is an expert in RF and MMW integrated circuit design, making substantial contributions specifically to the design of power efficient, high frequency power amplifiers and optical transceivers.  For his work he was recently elevated to the status of IEEE Fellow.  Jim has also been a PI on several major funding efforts from government agencies, including the DARPA SPAR program from which LintrinsIC’s technology stems, as well as other efforts from ARPA-E and NSF.  Jim brings invaluable experience in both the technical field and through connections within the semiconductor industry, whether it is for customers or for access to multi-project wafer tape-outs.  Google Scholar, UCSB Lab Website
