Breker Verification Systems' CEO Adnan Hamid Named Top Embedded Innovator by Embedded Computing Design Magazine

Recognized for Efforts to Remove Functional Verification Bottleneck

Adnan Hamid, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Breker Verification Systems (, The System-on-Chip (SoC) Verification Company, today was named one of three Top Embedded Innovators by Embedded Computing Design magazine (

Hamid, who is featured in the June issue, has made it his mission to remove functional verification as the bottleneck for technological innovation. He is defining and building a new verification category known as SoC verification.

Under Hamid's leadership, Breker is transforming the embedded industry with an innovative solution called TrekSoC™, automatic generator of self-verifying C test cases to solve complex verification challenges for SoCs containing embedded processors. With the automation provided by TrekSoC, embedded system development teams can develop production drivers and other high-value software instead of hand-writing throwaway tests as part of the verification process.

With more than 20 years of hands-on experience in functional verification automation, Hamid's experience includes leading an AMD verification team and serving as a verification expert, working with companies such as Texas Instruments, Siemens/Infineon and Motorola/Freescale. He graduated from Princeton University with Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and holds an MBA from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas.
