Trust the outcome

There’s always another way. And often, there’s a better one. If there is, Cascodium will find it. Together we optimize the path forward.

Cascodium is a commercial electrical engineering, firmware, and software development company that helps move your ideas and concepts out of the laboratory and into fielded prototypes, commercial products, and instrumentation solutions. Over two decades, Cascodium has completed hundreds of projects for industrial, consumer, and R&D clients ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 500. These design collaborations have resulted in over a billion dollars of product revenue for nearly 100 clients.

Today our staff includes graduates in electrical engineering, computer science, and physics, many with advanced degrees. Recently, Cascodium was named National Subcontractor of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).


After MIT and several years in industry, two electrical engineers formed Vtech Engineering Corporation in 1994 to provide innovative electronics design services. Our original offices were located in Acton, Massachusetts; we moved to a larger facility in Andover, Massachusetts, in 2000. Vtech’s initial work focused on electro-optic sensors. Our client base expanded to include a diverse range of application areas. New design activities broadened our experience with leading technologies and led to widespread incorporation of embedded processors and FPGAs into the system designs. In 2014, our twentieth year, our corporate name changed to Cascodium Inc.

Leadership Team


Advisory Board

Dr. John G. Kassakian, Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Dr. Kassakian’s field of expertise is power electronics and automotive electrical systems. He received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from MIT, and prior to joining the MIT faculty, he served a two year tour of duty in the US Navy. Dr. Kassakian was the Founding President of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Power Electronics Society, served as the US representative to the European Power Electronics Association, and is the recipient of the IEEE Centennial Medal, the IEEE William E. Newell Award, the IEEE Power Electronics Society’s Distinguished Service Award, the IEEE Millennium Medal, the European Power Electronics Association Achievement Award, and the Kabakjian Science Award. In 1989 he was elected a Fellow of the IEEE, and in 1993 he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering. In 1993 he was also awarded an IEEE Distinguished Lectureship through which he has lectured internationally. He has published extensively in the areas of power electronics, power systems, education, and automotive electrical systems, co-chaired the MIT study “The Future of the Electric Grid” and is a co-author of the textbook Principles of Power Electronics.

Matt Verminski, Technology Entrepreneur and Innovator

Matt is an accomplished entrepreneur, innovator, and executive with a proven track record of building and leading high-performance teams to deliver complex electromechanical systems enabled by software. He earned his BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Tufts University and SM in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Matt’s systems-level approach to transforming early concepts into reality has resulted in 44 granted US patents, with more pending. He serves on advisory boards for the Tufts School of Engineering and various technology companies, continuing to influence and guide the next generation of innovation.

Presently, Matt is the Chief Technology Officer at Kodama Systems, a startup he co-founded. The company is dedicated to the development of autonomous technologies for forestry operations and secured funding from Breakthrough Energy Ventures and Congruent Ventures. Previously, he led the engineering team at Desktop Metal, where they pioneered and manufactured groundbreaking metal 3D printing solutions for prototyping and production, with over $400 million in venture funding, and he played a pivotal role in the initial Kiva Systems team, which was acquired by Amazon for $775 million in 2012, and is now known as Amazon Robotics. At Kiva, he guided multiple generations of autonomous robotic systems from concept to volume production; at Amazon Robotics, he spearheaded the formation of an advanced robotics team to enhance the use of robots across fulfillment centers. Earlier in his career, Matt co-founded and led systems engineering for mimio and was an early team member at PowerAdvocate.
