Welcome to Alexandru Groza's main Internet site!
This page centralizes and simplifies access to all of my projects.
I am a long-time computer programmer and electronics engineer.
I started programming back in 1993 on an 80386SX / 25 MHz machine. I was using x86 Assembly language and Borland Pascal with Objects. As information was scarce, I learned mainly by trial and error and reading the help system of the utilities that I was using. I learned strong design guidelines and solid architecture from computer literature of the era. This is my underlying stone on which I built all of my current knowledge.
I was always strongly driven to create minimalist functional graphical user interfaces to access the business logic behind my software. As for the source code, I always guided myself by the less is more principle. I produce heavily structured, self-explaining, ultra optimized source code. Not a single line more than needed. I have been faithful to these principles ever since.
Although I worked with both CISC and RISC, I have always emphasized CISC and especially x86. Nostalgia? Maybe. I worked with various microcontrollers, Z80, and x86 microprocessors. Then I started designing my own computers, initially a few Z80-based designs. But then I shifted to x86 system design. I designed a 32-bit 80386DX-based machine that you can see presented in the Microelectronics sub-site.
In 1993 I also began assembling simple circuits based on schematics published within the electronics literature of the time. Then I started crafting my own. I am interested in analog audio signal amplification and digital microelectronics.
I regularly maintain the projects with an active status. Discontinued projects are displayed only for historical reasons and should be treated as archive.
