Martin Snelgrove, Chief Executive Officer

The strategic direction of Kapik Integration is Martin's key focus. He brings to this work almost 20 years of executive level leadership to the company.

Before co-founding Kapik in 2008, Martin led a series of high-performance technical teams for a range of companies, having served as Chief Scientist at Philsar Electronics (acquired by Conexant Systems), Chief Technology Officer at Soma Networks and CEO of Dissonance Inc., a design consultancy.

For the first 16 years of his career, Martin was a professor and researcher at the University of Toronto and Carleton University in Ottawa; he also completed residencies at Bell Labs, Oulu University in Finland and the Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica in Mexico.

Martin has an impressive track record in producing high-impact, commercially significant technologies. His pioneering work on bandpass delta-sigma converters and continuous-time delta-sigma loops has been incorporated in radars, digital receivers and RF power amplifiers. His advances in Hilbert-filter “complex analog” circuits led to the commercialization of self-trimming complex filter technology in receiver IF strips and RF power amplifiers. His work in adaptive analog filters for controlling high-performance analog signal paths resulted in high-volume.
