BioBee Technologies is a spin-off company from the University of Extremadura (Spain). It is focused on the technology development for implementing cost-effective bioimpedance-based applications. Our core is a powerful technological platform –hardware/software– implemented around IP high-performance CMOS analog front-end sections.

BioBee Technologies is built around a group of electronic engineers and software developers with expertise in low-power/low-voltage analog and mixed-signal IC design as well as microprocessor and RF systems development.

For the development of the technology, the company has received the support within the NEOTEC INITIATIVE of the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) - a Public Business Entity, answering to the Spanish Ministry of Economy an Competitiveness, which fosters the technological development and innovation of Spanish companies -.

 

The BioBee Technologies team

 

Javier Ramos, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer

Javier Ramos co-funded BioBee Technologies, where he is currently the chief technology officer, in 2012. He has been involved during more than 10 years in industry and research microchip designs in the area of CMOS analog and mixed-signal designs with focus on cost-effective analog front-end circuits with application in wireless sensor networks, biomedical electronics and microelectromechanical systems.

He received the B.S degree in electronics engineering from Extremadura University, Badajoz, Spain in 2004 and the M.S. degree in electronics engineering from Sevilla University, Sevilla, Spain, in 2008. In 2004, he joined the Engineering School of Badajoz , where he is currently a researcher collaborator in the Department of Electric and Electronic Engineering. He has authored or co-authored technical publications in several international scientific journals and conferences.

 

José Luis Ausín, Co-founder and Partner

José Luis Ausín co-funded BioBee Technologies in 2012. He has more than 15 years of experience in industry problem-driven microchip development in the area of CMOS analog and mixed-signal designs with focus on energy-efficient analog front-end circuits with application in wireless sensor networks and biomedical electronics. He joined the University of Extremadura in 1995 where he is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical, Electronics and Control Engineering.

Dr. Ausín received his B.S. degree from the University of Cantabria (Spain) in 1993 and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Extremadura (Spain) in 2000. Dr. Ausín has authored or co-authored 70+ technical publications in international scientific journals and conferences.

 

Francisco Duque-Carrillo, Co-Founder and Partner

Francisco Duque-Carrillo received the M.Sc. degree (1980) and the Ph.D. degree (1985) in electronic physics from the Universities of Seville and Extremadura, respectively. In 1987 and 1995, on a NATO Fellowship, he performed post-doctoral research at the Electrical Engineering Department of Texas A&M University. In 1988, he joined as IC design engineer to AT&T Microelectronics in Madrid and Allentown, PA. In 2011, he joined in a research stay to the IST (Instituto Superior Técnico) of the Technical University of Lisbon. Currently, he occupies a professor position at the University of Extremadura (Spain). He has authored and coauthored more than 150 journal and conference papers in the field of low-voltage low-power analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit design for signal processing.

 

Francisco J. Redondo

He is a graduate in Electrical Engineering from the University of Extremadura (Spain) where he received the B.A.Sc. degree and M.Sc. both in Electrical Engineering in 2003 and 2005, respectively. From then, he was with several companies (such as Microelectrónica Española S.A., Refinería Balboa S.A.) working on fields of software development and instrumentation and control. In 2012 he joined with BioBee Technologies where he is currently responsible of the RF developments.

 

Antonio M. Lorido

Antonio Lorido holds a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Control Engineering from the University of Extremadura in 2006 and a Master’s degree in Electronics Engineering from the same University. His M.EE. dissertation was on remotely configurable body sensor area networks and supervised by José L. Ausín. Since 2012 he is with BioBee Technologies where is responsible of the software development division.
