     PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

    Highly motivated professional with more than 15 years of hardware engineering experience in telecom, semiconductor, aerospace and test&measurement industry.

    Executed projects range from mixed-signal ASIC design, FPGA design of real-time spectrum analysis and frequency mask triggering systems, ASIC and FPGA design of high-end GPS/Galileo/Glonass baseband receivers, ASIC prototyping by means of FPGAs for several ASICs used in Voice over IP applications, board and FPGA design for high volume, low cost modems and high-speed board design for high-end ATM based switching systems. Proven track record of successfully taking designs from architecture phase up to manufacturing release.

    Flexible and versatile engineer with excellent team building skills and talent for quickly mastering new technologies. Eager to learn. Self starter who can work with minimal supervision. 

    SKILLS

    • Matlab/Simulink /System Generator/C++ modeling of DSP algorithms and systems.
    • ASIC/FPGA specification, architecture, design and simulation in Verilog/VHDL.
    • ASIC prototyping and verification.
    • RTL Synthesis + Simulation + Static Timing Analysis: Synplify Pro and Certify (Synplicity), Modelsim (Mentor Graphics), Design Compiler, Prime Time (Synopsys).
    • Place and Route: Xilinx, Altera.
    • Board design (component selection, schematic entry, signal integrity, coordination of PCB layout, EMI/EMC, ESD, safety, test, follow-up manufacturing).
    • Pre and post layout signal integrity simulations by means of IBIS models.
    • Testing and debugging (oscilloscope, logic analyzer, pattern generator, BERT, …).

    PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

    Confidential (Belgium)   (Mar 2007 – Present)

    Sr. ASIC/DSP Design Engineer, Technical Lead

    As technical lead of a team working on a breakthrough high-performance A/D converter ASIC, responsible for:

    • Complete development cycle of the digital part (specification, design and modeling of digital corrections for analog impairments, bit true and cycle accurate C++ simulations, verification test plan and follow-up, prototyping on Xilinx platform, validation of silicon in system context).
    • Coordination of the technical design aspects and maintaining daily communication with the team in California that worked on the analog part of the ASIC.
    • Coaching of other team members and follow-up on contractors (VHDL coding, synthesis, verification).

    The tape-out was a big success and the ASIC is now a key component in Agilent's future spectrum analyzers. Promoted to Expert.

    The validation platform of the A/D converter was re-used to develop a complete real-time spectrum analysis and frequency mask triggering system for detecting and capturing transient signals with high probability of intercept. This involved:

    • Investigating customer requirements and defining an architecture which enables significant differentiation from competitors on the long term.
    • Specification, modeling in Simulink/System Generator, micro-architecture, design, simulation and testing.

    Part of the work was reported about in the European FP7 projects Samurai and Qosmos and were rated excellent at the review.

     

    Septentrio Satellite Navigation (Leuven, Belgium)   (Feb 2004 – Feb 2007)

    ASIC/FPGA Design Engineer

    Responsible for specification and design of a new architecture for a high-end, multi-frequency GNSS receiver ASIC.

    • Designed and simulated in VHDL multiple blocks (digital front-end with FIR filters, P/Y channel with adaptive semi-codeless controller, fast acquisition unit based on matched filter and FFT, …).
    • Prototyped a reduced channel GPS receiver in Xilinx Virtex II Pro (XC2VP40) and Virtex4 (XC4VLX40).
    • Integrated Xilinx’s MicroBlaze embedded processor with its peripherals (UART, interrupt controler,…) for test purposes and wrote C code for test applications for the embedded processor.

    The ASIC was first time right and is since then the core component of the AsteRx products.

    Responsible for the design of a new compact, low power architecture for a single frequency GPS/Galileo receiver targeted for lower cost in Xilinx Spartan3 (XC3S1000).

     

    Contracting and college (University of California Santa Cruz Extension)   (Sep 2002 –  Jan 2004)

    GlobespanVirata / iCompression (Santa Clara, California)  (Jan 2001 – Aug 2002)

    Hardware Engineer

    Responsible for ASIC prototyping for several ASICs used in VoIP applications.

    • Partitioned large complex designs among multiple FPGAs (one board had 8 Xilinx Virtex-II XC2V6000) and wrote Verilog code to support the integration and partitioning.
    • Performed synthesis, place and route, floorplanning and static timing analysis.
    • Debugged the ASIC code mapped in multiple FPGAs, in the lab with logic analyzer and oscilloscope.

    The prototyping allowed the ASIC designers to find problems in the chip, not encountered earlier during simulation, and saved over $500k for each tape-out iteration. Also, it created a platform for the DSP group to debug their software before the ASIC was available.

     

    Datax (Antwerp, Belgium)   (Jan 2000 – Dec 2000)

    Hardware Development Engineer

    Responsible for the entire development of the 2MCNV product, which provides an interface conversion between E1/T1 and X21, V35 or Ethernet.  This included:

    • Writing user requirements specification.
    • Feasibility study (board functionality, variants, physical constraints), power budget and cost analysis.
    • Evaluation of all required components and integrated circuits (analog and digital).
    • Design and simulation in VHDL (interface conversion, test loop handling,…), implemented in Altera’s MAX3000 series to achieve low cost at high volume.
    • Schematic capture, coordination of board layout and mechanical design.
    • Debug and test prototypes (EMI/EMC, ESD and compliancy tests), follow-up manufacturing.
