Dejan Dumic

SOC IP Architect & Design Lead

Dejan started his career at Methods2Business as a master thesis student designing a master I2C controller with AXI interface for the ZYNQ 7000 AP virtual platform. With his thesis, he delivered a great contribution to the development of a new design method developed at Methods2Business to enable formally proven embedded system design starting from an unambiguous HW/SW contract. The results were presented at CDNLive in Munich and at the DAC in Austin.

Algorithmic modeling - digital baseband

Lenard Mesaros  was born on the 30th of April 1990 in Torda, Serbia. He holds a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Novi Sad. Lenard started his career at Methods2Business as a master thesis student working on UVM-ML testbenches in a SystemC-based design flow for the verification of the Channel Access module of an IEEE 802.11ah MAC IP Core. With his thesis, he delivered a great contribution to the further adoption of UVM-ML testbenches in the context of a SystemC-based design flow.
After graduation, he strengthened the verification team at Methods2Business in Novi Sad where he currently works on UVM-ML testbenches for the functional verification of the new 802.11ah MAC IP Core.
