This design is inspired by the idea that we are helping to connect the world with the circuits that we build. The impressive complexity and interconnections within an integrated circuit are an analog of the connections that the circuits themselves are creating between people across the world. My goal was to simply and aesthetically symbolize this by positioning the planet within the interior of the chip amongst the interconnect. 

Daniel received his BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida in 2016. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Virginia. His research focuses on low power and energy efficient circuit design for the IoT.
