About Me

I am the Director of Engineering for Fujitsu Semiconductor. I manage a team of engineers that love to build things. We have worked on touch screen vending systems, automotive dashboards for a major US car maker, developed 3D and 2D user interfaces and invented new graphics techniques that are in use around the world with our sister companies and design centers. I love graphics. 2D graphics, 3D graphics - it doesn't matter. My specialty is creating fantastic looking graphics on chips that aren't so powerful. With powerful chips - well...the sky's the limit.

My background is in hardware and software design and development with a special emphasis on graphics technologies. My team is involved in the definition and creation of new graphics processors for Fujitsu - including high end 2D functional blocks as well as new and innovative 3D graphics cores.

I look forward to engaging with some of you and hope to learn a lot along the way. Thanks for reading.

My email address (which is highly unusual I know, but Fujitsu has IRON tight email security so spammers have an almost impossible time getting through) is: thomas.tewell@us.fujitsu.com.

I am currently developing an Open Source 3D UI engine called Su3De which is kind of an acronym for Super Easy to Use 3D engine. We will use it for some of our new 3D chips as well as some of our legacy chips... It will support OpenGL ES 1.1, Open GL ES 2.0 as well as our custom 3D APIs. Currently I am discussing it in detail on my blog at http://www.ricktewell.com.
