  • Max "The Magnificent" MaxfieldEditorial Director / Embedded.comAspenCore

    Clive "Max" Maxfield is six feet tall, outrageously handsome, English, and proud of it. In addition to being a hero, trendsetter, and leader of fashion, he is widely regarded as an expert in all aspects of electronics (at least by his mother).

    Max received his BSc in Control Engineering in 1980 from Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. He began his career as a designer of central processing units (CPUs) for mainframe computers. Over the years, Max has designed everything from silicon chips to circuit boards, and from Brainwave Amplifiers to Vetinari Clocks to Pedagogical and Phantasmagorical Inamorata Prognostication Engines. He has also been at the forefront of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) for more than 20 years.

    Max is the author and co-author of a number of books, including Designus Maximus Unleashed (Banned in Alabama), Bebop to the Boolean Boogie (An Unconventional Guide to Electronics), EDA: Where Electronics Begins, FPGAs: Instant Access, and How Computers Do Math.
