David C. Schie joined Linear Dimensions Semiconductor Inc. in August of 2012 as Chief Executive Officer, with a vision to advance the wearables revolution. Bringing together analog & mixed semiconductor power, analog neural algorithmic, industrial design, and systems engineering capabilities, Linear Dimensions is a pioneer in solving motion and noise artifact rejection, battery lifetime and form factor issues which are major hurdles to the creation of practical wearable solutions. During his tenure Linear Dimensions has been recognized for overcoming many motion and noise problems of contact and non-contact physiological measurements, optimizing the extraction of ECG and other signals during exercise including full run. System results include lowest power portable solutions for waveform extraction, and are being applied to noise cancelling audio as well as EMG/EEG (muscle/brain) based control. Before joining Linear Dimensions, Mr. Schie was Sr. Vice President of Power Management and High Reliability Semiconductors at Semtech. Prior to Semtech Mr. Schie was Vice President & General Manager of Analog/Power/RF Communications at Micrel which he joined after working at Maxim Integrated Products as Executive Director.
