Anthony Giles
Managing Director

Anthony has twenty five years experience in medical electronic product development, having worked for extensive periods for both Huntleigh Diagnostics and Gyrus Medical and for a short (but exciting) stint with Altera.

His output during these years included an ultrasonic doppler, electro-surgical generators and drug delivery systems.

Anthony founded Blackwood Embedded Solutions in 2008 in response to a gap in the market for an agency to support the whole design lifecycle for software and hardware and he still gets a thrill from helping clients get their products to market.
