Microchip inventor, co-founder of Arduino

David Cuartielles is a Spanish microchip engineer, Independent Design Professional, and Electronics Laboratory Director at Malmo University, Sweden. David is the creator and co-founder of Arduino, which is an open-source single-board microcontroller, descendant of the open-source Wiring Platform, designed to make the process of using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. Cuartielles and his team share their discoveries with the rest of the world (Arduino can be built, bought, and sold by anyone, anywhere) with the idea that open-source hardware is fundamental to the advancement of the world's technology.
