Meet Dave Breithaupt

Meet Dave Breithaupt

Meet Dave Breithaupt, human transistor. Dave was one of the first engineers to work with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) in the ‘80s, and is now the guy responsible for Wheatstone’s firmware designs. You probably have never met Dave, but you might know of his work.

His FPGA designs were married to a Linux microprocessor to yield the hardware needed to build the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, for example.

In the 12 years that Dave has worked with Wheatstone, he has been involved in just about every new product design at the firmware level on down to the switches and buttons of Wheatstone control surfaces.

Dave started out designing television cameras for RCA and has worked in electro optic imaging, X-ray imaging, and military electronics for companies like GE before landing at Wheatstone.

The only thing he enjoys almost as much as working on Wheatstone products is taking the motorcycle out for a spin. Which is saying a lot about his dedication to Wheatstone, because Dave has five motorcycles.
