Download Resume

Hello! I'm Lars Lindqvist. I am a highly skilled Digital Designer with long experience of designing all kinds of electronic systems and specifically including ASICs and FPGAs.

My ability to develop and pursue new challenges has led to a position in the forefront among digital designers developing cutting-edge system designs. I have over thirty years’ experience of driving digital design projects, applying strong analytical and problem-solving skills autonomously as well as in teams.

Gordia is derived from the Gordian Knot and stands for innovative and smart solutions to complex problems. The Gordian Knot was a complex knot residing in a tempel in Gordion. Any man who could unravel it was destined to become ruler of all of Asia. Alexander the Great finally achieved this by slicing the knot in half with his sword, and did indeed conquer most of Asia.
