As well as being The Filter Wizard, Kendall Castor-Perry is a skilled circuit designer, product engineer and all-round analog expert. He's a widely published communicator of theory and method in many electronics disciplines. His fascination with electronics and audio dates back to boyhood. He spent 21 years designing filters, precision instrumentation, signal processing equipment and music systems. Then 11 years selling and designing in analog semiconductors. He's created advanced products to chase signals across many domains, extract the information from them and do something useful with it.
These days, Kendall is with Cypress, doing system architecture, product definition and strategic application analysis for their precision analog and mixed-signal devices. And also, of course, supporting customers with all sorts of analog and digital filter designs. He's also educating and mentoring a new generation in the ways of analog and systems thinking. Striving to improve the world one dB at a time!
