Scott Schweitzer

Director of SmartNIC Product Planning, Achronix Semiconductor

Since his baptism on the altar of the TRS-80, Scott has been a lifelong technology evangelist. He's written profitable software products, built hardware, and formally managed programs for IBM, NEC, Solarflare, and now Xilinx.

After two decades plugging along with single socket computing platforms, Scott joined NEC in 2003 to manage its new Intel Itanium multi-core 64-bit Super Computing Server, and he's never looked back. In 2005, Scott shifted his focus to clustering for Super Computing and extreme performance networking.

As 10-GbE adoption ramped up, he launched his wildly popular blog. With market changes in 2017, Scott rolled into the Technology Evangelist, a blog with thousands of monthly page views, and an accompanying podcast.
