Domingo Figueredo has engineering and executive management experience in the US and abroad with companies such as Hewlett Packard, Hitachi/Renesas, and Nippon Mining and Manufacturing. After receiving a MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California in Santa Barbara in 1981, Domingo joined HP where he worked on the development, manufacturing and marketing of devices ranging from GaAs and Si semiconductor transistors and integrated circuits to high performance SRAMs, thermal INKJET ICs and MEMS devices (also known as FBAR) leading to very high volume/demand devices such as InkJet cartridges and CDMA mobile phone duplexer systems extensively used in the US by companies such as Verizon and Sprint.
Domingo has start-up experience and has lived and worked in Japan, Singapore and Malaysia in order to facilitate the development of new technologies, transfer and ramping up to volume into manufacturing.
After leaving HP in early 2002, Domingo joined Hitachi Semiconductor America (now Renesas Technology) as the Vice President of the Analog Business Unit, responsible for analog semiconductor device demand creation for the Americas.
In 2004-2005, Domingo worked as an independent contractor and has helped develop the IQHARVEST, a device that used for collection and storage of clean water and electric power while enabling the land occupied to be used for agricultural purposes. Additional product developments include the IP creation and development of improved designs and materials for control systems needed by high performance NiZn batteries, oxygen generation and high efficiency water desalinization and purification systems. These resulting in several of his latest patent disclosures. Domingo has also worked as a change agent both within companies and as a consultant to significantly improve management processes around new product development, marketing and manufacturing.
Domingo joined TechZecs as a Principal in 2005 and has been working with high-tech companies as a consultant or interim executive manager since then. He has been specializing in New Product Development speed and excellence. For example, he has stepped-in on an interim basis for a home audio company in Denmark and later a scientific instrument company in the US mid-west as an interim Program Manager to help them introduce some critical new products while significantly improving and speeding their new product development processes.
Domingo has received 16 US Patents and has 14 patent disclosures in the works in addition to 23 papers and presentations. His current focus is on refinement of a process to schedule technical, marketing and organizational breakthroughs.
Domingo came to the US from Venezuela in 1975 and became a naturalized US Citizen in 1985. He is fluent in Spanish and English and has some conversational abilities in Japanese.
