Expertise DescriptionI have more than 20 years experience in the field of integrated circuits, specializing in Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits. I am experienced and skilled in bridging the gap between methodologies used by the digital, analog and radio frequency circuit design teams. My subspecialty within this broad category includes integrated circuits (ICs) used for signal processing. I have experience with systems such as telephones, mobile phones and cell phones; electric toll collection, data recording and retrieving systems for magnetic media such as disk drives or magnetic tape; radio transmitters / receivers and their building blocks such as low noise amplifiers, filters, automated gain control, and frequency mixers (down-converters, up-converters); audio amplifiers; audio recording / reproduction systems; heat ventilation, and air conditioning controllers; data transmitting / receiving systems such as serializer / de-serializers (SERDES). I have prior expert witness experience.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes: Forensic Investigation and report of an alleged failure in an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) System.
My consulting services include: Advise and Provide solutions to specify, design, verify, produce, validate, and test signal processing integrated circuits which detect signals from a sensor; Independent review and verification of new mixed signal ICs before client commits funds to manufacture the design; Advising and providing solutions for top-down design methodologies, and the analysis, design, modeling and verification of RF, analog and digital circuits; Creating behavioral models of electrical circuits, wireless system components and electro-mechanical units to be used for system simulation and design; Designing algorithms, software and hardware for system self-tuning and calibration; Forensic investigation and litigation support.
