Currently he is a Member of Technical Staff involved in the design and development of USB products and high-speed memory including SDR/DDR/DDR2/DDR3/DDR4 Synchronous DRAM. Before joining Nanya, he was a design engineer at Texas Instruments involved in the design and development of Flash EPROM and high-speed memory such as Direct Rambus DRAM (TM).
Prior to joining TI, he held a full-time tenure-track appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University. He taught both undergraduate and graduate digital logic design, advanced electronic circuits and VLSI design courses. He was also the system administrator of CAD/CAE systems in the microelectronics group consisting of 10 full-time faculty members and 50-60 graduate students.
He received the Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University and the B.S.E.E. with Honors from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
In the past he has been involved in several projects dealing with high-speed memory interface design & development, synchronous DRAM and flash memory development, VLSI systolic array architecture, CAD methodologies and modeling and simulation. His research interests include VLSI/WSI digital design and test, CAD methodologies, modeling and simulation, advanced logic design, computer architecture and microprocessor-based system design.
He is fluent in BASIC, Fortran, C, DOS & Linux/Unix shell scripts, Awk, Perl and HTML. He also has extensive experience in Mentor Graphics (TM), Cadence (TM), and Synopsys (TM) CAD tools and is fluent in SPICE, VHDL and Verilog.
He has published 39 technical papers and reports including 8 journal and 27 conference papers. He also has several patents granted (U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,675,546, 5,719,880, 5,872,794, 6,381,718, 6,408,411, and 6,615,391 ). He served as session chairman at the SCS Eastern Simulation Conferences and the Annual Pittsburgh Conference on Modeling and Simulation. He is a member of Eta Kappa Nu.
P.S.: Professional recruiters please do not send me email, I'm very happy with Nanya Technology.
