Mr. Mark A. Indovina received his AAS, BSEE, and MSEE from Rochester Institute of Technology. His graduate focus areas were integrated circuit (IC) design and digital signal processing (DSP).
Mark joined the Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering at RIT in 2012 as an adjunct professor, and as a Lecturer in 2017. He teaches courses in digital system design, VLSI design and system verification. Mark also participates in the Multidisciplinary Senior Design program. His areas of interest include mixed-signal and digital circuit design, VLSI design, low power design, embedded systems, systems engineering, signal processing for various applications including professional audio and sensor conditioning, neuromorphic computing and networks on chip (NoC).
As a practicing engineering, in 2009 Mark founded Tenrehte Technologies with Jennifer Indovina (his daughter) and Carlos Barrios (both RIT EE Alumni). Tenrehte designs and delivers fully integrated product platforms for energy monitoring, control, and management. Prior to Tenrehte, Mark was Chief Technology Officer and a founder of Vivace Semiconductor, a fabless semiconductor start-up company focused on providing System-On-Chip (SoC) solutions for the growing digital entertainment markets. Prior to Vivace, Mark was Vice President of Engineering for Improv Systems, Inc., a company which developed and licensed intellectual property for digital signal processing including a proprietary DSP architecture, development tools, DSP algorithms, and application software. Prior to joining Improv Systems, Mark was the Director of Engineering at Cadence Design Systems where he formed a new business unit for Cadence focused on contract IC design. Before Cadence Design Systems, Mark was a Principle Research Engineer in the Applied Research department of Motorola working on strategic mixed signal semiconductor devices and SoC solutions that paved the way for exciting new wireless, battery powered communications devices. During this time he was also an adjunct professor at
Mark currently has three patents (US 9,438,492 ; US 9,197,949 ; GB2499164), has authored numerous other patent applications, technical papers, and is the co-author of an eBook on IC design. He is a senior member of the
