SIGNAL INTEGRITY ENGINEERING

COMPETENCIES

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Technical expertise,

DDR, DDR2, DDR3,  

Multi-board

Signal Integrity Lead supporting 4-5 concurrent $2M hardware projects and one $5M ASIC design annually.  Recognized DDR specialist designing embedded DDR1/2/3 circuits for 21 hardware products and 2 ASIC developments.   Extensive board/multi-board/system level experience.

Ingenuity,

Process Improvement,

Incorporated SI simulation methodologies (HyperLynx/ICX/H-Spice) to design in quality and avoid difficult to troubleshoot intermittent problems.  SI engineering practices resulted in reduced overall engineering time and board spins for an annual savings of >$300K. 

Collaboration,

Design Reliability

Increased design efficiency 83% through SI/HW/PCB collaborative creation of a DDR physical re-use block saving 3 months effort.  Utilization of re-use block eased design maintenance improving update efficiency 78%, saving 2 weeks effort per update, while increasing design reliability.

Innovative,

Forward Thinking,

Big Picture

Recommended ASIC design improvements resulting in feature enhancements incorporated in next generation ASIC designs, including:  a patentable DDR driver auto-impedance-adjust for real-time drift compensation.  And a configurable drive/slew-rate control to universally support low- to high-end applications without the need for discrete termination. 

Trouble shooting

skills,  High Speed

Measurements

Identified and coordinated resolution of multiple DDR controller issues resulting in either model, silicon or configuration changes.  Acquired and presented simulation/lab data to silicon vendors demonstrating source of differential signaling, ground-bounce or driver mismatch issues.

 

                                                         ELECTRICAL HARDWARE DESIGN

COMPETENCIES

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Creative,

Cost Reduction,

Results Driven,

Time-to-Market,

Conceptualized and designed a unique, low profile, low cost, user interface module with embedded buttons and mylar overlay.  New design replaced a 3 module stack; reducing manufacturing time 75% and product cost by 80% while improving reliability and simplifying user installation.  Received special recognition for releasing product at first design revision.  Product promotion appeared in world-wide corporate brochure for its innovation.

Spurs new ideas/

solutions/processes,

Work independently

Accomplished Lead Project/HW Engineer with several company firsts:  SI lead of first SI organization at Rockwell Automation.  First/only (at that time) sustaining engineer for CompuAdd.  Sole technical contact, supporting/training Texas Instruments European Distribution/Repair Center.  Awarded first patent for Fire Alarm Division of Grinnell/Thorn Automated Systems

Pioneering, Thorough,

Quality,

Designed innovative FPGA test mode to verify integrity of on-chip Error Checking & Correction logic for memory interface fault protection.   This FPGA design was adopted by other products and was later converted to an ASIC.

Quick learner,

Originality,

Perceptive

Identified and resolved difficult memory soft-error issue on a legacy product.  Demonstrated excellent troubleshooting skills using “out-of-the-box” thinking to devise test platforms which facilitated capture of enough data errors to disseminate the problem.

 

PATENTS/ INNOVATION AWARDS

  • Awarded a patent for the development of a fault tolerant RS485 communication network including: ground fault detection, data detection and transmission direction control circuitry.  First patent awarded to this company division.
  • Presented an innovation award for development of an FPGA based ECC circuit to correct single-bit and check double-bit memory errors with a self-test mode to verify the integrity of the ECC circuitry itself; implementing an additional layer of protection against Soft Errors and other error phenomenon.
  • Presented an innovation award in recognition of inventiveness and ingenuity demonstrated through development of simulation methodologies and promotion of signal integrity engineering practices in product development.
  • Received multiple outstanding achievement awards for “above and beyond” contributions, including:  improved efficiency in engineering practices, advanced technical contribution, product cost reduction, improved product reliability and team work.
