Chief Engineer / Chief Operating Officer
Greg Elmassian has over twenty-five years’ experience building engineering teams and creating successful telecommunications products. Prior to joining Pulse~LINK, Greg led projects at Wind River, Uniden and Denso International. Products and systems developed by Mr. Elmassian include architecting and designing the industry’s first StongARM based set top box. This product, the industry’s first Java-based STB, was featured on Sun’s web site and presented at the JavaOne conference. The hardware and software for this product was designed and developed in less than six months, including a pilot manufacturing run, second-spin and preliminary FCC/CE mark approval.
Other notable achievements include designing, building and managing the engineering team for a wireless cellular business system, including switch fabric, call control, mobility, et cetera. Mr. Elmassian was also responsible for new product development of Denso’s private wireless cellular phone systems (PHS) offering. Software development projects include low level call processing using embedded processors, high level application development under ISO/OSI model, using ISDN BRI/PRI and development under C++ on multiple platforms.
Dr. Ivan Krivokapic
Director, RF Systems Engineering
Dr. Ivan Krivokapic brings over twenty years of experience in the field of RF systems architecture definition and analysis, together with antenna & RF circuitry design. At Pulse~LINK his responsibilities range from RFIC system architecture to hardware design and implementation of HDTV streaming & multimedia content over both, coax and wireless media via DSSS UWB. At Olympus Communications Systems of America, Ivan spearheaded OFDM UWB-based radio system analysis, including full wave multipath simulations and RF system componentry for video streaming in wireless medical monitoring. During his tenure with Olympus, Dr. Krivokapic architected and specified ultra-low power UHF ASIC RFICs targeted at ICD applications.
Other career highlights: MaxLinear: As Senior Systems Manager, Dr. Krivokapic was responsible for overseeing and providing technical guidance to the system engineering group responsible for satellite channel/band stacking ODU/MDU and DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 infrastructure ICs.
STMicroelectronics: As Principal RF System Engineer, Ivan’s responsibilities included the RF systems aspects of CDMA 2000 RFICs. Later, at the advanced radio architecture group, he performed system analysis and drafted specification for the 801.11n transmitter 65nm CMOS block. Dr. Krivokapic holds eight US, and international patents, in the field of radio communications.
