José Alonso

Executive Vice-president

Degree in Physical Sciences (specialization: Microwave Electronics) from the University of Cantabria. 4 years’ experience at the European Space Agency (ESA), as apprentice and, from 1993 to 1996, contractor in the Directorate of Technical and Quality Management. In 1996, he set up TTI, an ESA spin-off company dedicated to RF and Antenna technologies for the aerospace sector. Since 2007, in partnership with researchers and technologists, he has contributed to the creation of several technological spin-offs from TTI’s parent company Celestia.

These include: TST, in 2007 (with teachers of Telematics and Remote Diagnostics); Tedesys, in 2010 (with teachers of Microelectronics); ASYSOL, in 2012 (with teachers of Antenna Measurement Systems from the UPM in Madrid); and Celestia Renovables, in 2013 (ionization systems for horticultural products using accelerated particles). In 2014, three new start-ups were created: Celestia eScan (electronic scanning systems), OPAL (pulsed laser particle accelerators), and Celestia Mechatronics (design and development of electro-mechanical positioners).

Francisco Jiménez

General Manager

Francisco José Jiménez Garrido. PhD in Physics (specialization: Microelectronics). An electronics engineer with more than 15 years’ experience in the design of mixed signal circuits, image sensors and vision systems. In 2000, he started work as a designer of mixed-signal integrated circuits at the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Sevilla (IMSE-CNM). In 2003, he joined Innovaciones Microelectrónicas S.L. (Anafocus), where he continued his technical and professional career until October 2016. During this period, he worked first as a mixed signal designer and technical project manager, involved in the architectural definition of systems under design, the definition of block specifications and the design of mixed signal blocks such as A / D and D / A converters, band-gaps, PLLs, etc.

He then directed the systems on-chip design department, overseeing the development of image sensors for later production and coordinating design teams of over 30 engineers, including mixed signal designers, digital designers and software engineers (CAD). His management of this department for six years gave him considerable experience in the management and organization of research and development teams and projects. In October 2016, he joined 2SE, forming part of the managerial and technical team

Carlos Domínguez

Director of Technological Development

Carlos M. Domínguez Matas. Degree in Physics (specialization: Electronics). More than 15 years’ experience as a mixed signal designer, specialized in the design of vision sensors and the integration of sensor circuits in on-chip converters. From 2001 to 2006, he worked at IMSE-CNM as a designer of mixed signal circuits, participating in different communications and vision systems research projects. In 2006 he joined Anafocus as a mixed-signal designer, contributing to the design of integrated circuits for several industrial projects. Between 2010 and September 2016, he was promoted to technical project manager and coordinator of the company’s mixed signal section.

During this 5-year period, he managed 5 high performance sensor projects with satisfactory results, supervising design teams of 6-8 people. From October 2016 to date he has been responsible for integrated circuit research and development at 2SE.
