|Welcome to Backdraft Technologies, LLC|
Markus Levy, President of Backdraft Technologies
In his role as president of EEMBC, Markus has successfully brought together the majority of processor and tool vendors of the embedded industry to derive the industry standard for embedded processor and system benchmarking. Founded in 1997, EEMBC has grown to more than 50 members, and its benchmarks are now used by more than 500 corporate licensees and 75 world-wide universities.
As president of the Multicore Association, Markus works with pioneers of the embedded multicore processor industry to deliver industry standards that will enable rapid development of portable applications for systems employing multicore technology. Out of this activity grew the need for the annual Multicore Expo, a technical conference and exhibition that represents all major aspects of the multicore, embedded graphics, and multimedia ecosystem.
Markus was previously a senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR and a senior editor at
EDN magazine, focusing in both roles on processors for the embedded
industry. In his role as senior analyst, Markus delivered numerous technical
seminars and training sessions, and prepared highly influential reports on a
wide variety of processor technologies.
Markus lives and works in the California Sierra foothills, where he volunteers as a firefighter and EMT and thoroughly enjoys rushing to calls with the lights flashing and siren blaring.
