Iain Galloway

Drones Program Technical Lead

Iain is an electrical engineer with 25 years experience and currently holds the position of Systems Innovation Engineer in the Automotive Business Unit of NXP Semiconductors (NXPI, NASDAQ) with a focus on the connected car, autonomous driving and unmanned aerial vehicles. His past roles with NXP, and its predecessor, Freescale Semiconductor, involved directing designs based on market knowledge and insight into current and upcoming trends.


In 2015 Iain was recognized by Freescale with the companies’ Diamond Elite Club Award for his work in bringing the Internet of Tomorrow Tour to fruition. The award was the highest honor bestowed by Freescale for delivering exceptional performance in the top 3% of their Global Sales and Marketing organization. The Internet of Tomorrow Tour (and the follow on NXP Smarter World Tour) was an ambitious project to showcase the Internet of Things (IoT) in a mobile training and demonstration platform through visits to companies, universities, and major conferences. The project received numerous industry accolades and awards.


In his new role as Drones Program Technical Lead, Iain is preparing the groundwork for small autonomous vehicles to use safe and secure high reliability and functionally safe silicon from NXP in next generations of devices. This not only includes microcontrollers and processors but other technologies borrowed from the networking, industrial, IoT and Automotive world, such as robust lightweight in vehicle networking, automotive grade sensors and new products such as 77Ghz Radar and 802.11p V2X Software Defined Radio technology
