Bram Nauta designs and builds computer chips. Fitted with filters, amplifiers and noise cancellation technology, they can be found in smartphones, tablets and computers. Nauta and his team research and produce inventive designs that help improve chip functionality. He is the inventor of the ‘Nauta circuit’, an energy-efficient signal amplifier that formed the basis of Bluetooth. He also developed thermal noise cancellation technology long before it turned out to be useful in smartphones. Nauta previously worked for Philips Research and became a professor at the tender age of 34.
