Greg Armstrong

Principal Engineer – System Design, Renesas Electronics

Greg Armstrong has worked in the telecommunications industry for 27 years and focusing on synchronization for the last 17 years. Greg’s expertise is in technologies that enable the transfer of frequency, phase, and time synchronization over packet networks (SyncE, IEEE 1588, NTP, ToP, RTP, and CESoPSN). As a Principal System Architect at Renesas Electronics (which acquired Integrated Device Technology in 2019), he’s responsible for the technical definition of new timing products (both silicon and software) around network synchronization.

Greg has presented papers at various conferences and, since 2016, he’s been providing a tutorial on phase-locked loops (PLLs) at both ITSF and WSTS. He also represents Renesas in the IEEE 1588 working group and was a key contributor to the CableLabs Synchronization Techniques for DOCSIS® Technology Specification for Mobile Backhaul.

Greg started his career at Bell Northern Research (Nortel Networks) in Ottawa, Canada. He previously held the position of Senior Application Engineer at Microsemi (who acquired Zarlink Semiconductor in 2011). He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Electronic Systems Engineering from the University of Regina, Canada (1995).
