About & FAQ
Hi there and welcome to my page!
My name is Deyan Levski. I am a (micro) electronics engineer focusing in the field of IC design for light sensing. I have interests in various subjects related to physics and engineering, hence my presence on the web with Transistorized.
Formally, I hold a PhD in Microelectronics from the University of Oxford, after doing an MSc in Systems on Chip from Linköping university. From about mid 2012 to 2014 I was an analog designer with OmniVision Norway, where I was developing analog and mixed-signal readout circuits for automotive CMOS image sensors. From about 2014 to 2017 I was a visiting research engineer with Austria Microsystems in Madeira, Portugal, working on a high-speed image sensor design.
Recently I co-founded Photolitics - a custom image sensor design house, specializing in industrial machine vision CMOS Image Sensor development and mixed-signal ASIC design.
In the time when I am not designing circuits I try to wrap my head around non-fiction literature and philosophical thoughts: "But, what is ethics anyway?" or perhaps "What comes after post-fordism?". I also enjoy globetrotting the world for mind-mind interactions. I get thrilled skating my roller blades at 35 km/h too.
Here's my contact details (apart from English, I also grasp Bulgarian, Russian and Swedish)

How did you start with electronics? Could you recommend any book?
I'm more than happy to see how I could help you individually, but what's of most importance is persistance. Don't give up if it doesn't work, fail, and fail often. See Jeri Ellsworth's Secret to Learning Electronics motivational video.
I have to solve and code this problem. Could you send me the code?
Sorry for being rude but, no! I won't write your homework and I can not send you any code.
What are you working on right now?
I have various projects running in parallel so it's hard to summarize. I also usually try to keep my post buffer above empty, so stay tuned.
Could you update that post?
I am trying to maintain and update the pages but unfortunately the posts are not my day-to-day thing. If you have good suggestions, write them in the comments.
Your code is unreadable, could you clarify this if statement?
I am not a professional coder and I admit that some of the released scripts in the pool here may not be great. This holds especially true about my perl and shell coding, which is pretty much write-only. Still, if you think that I could help, shoot me an e-mail.
I'm lazy. More FAQ to come later.
