Expert Witness #226812

This expert holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and has extensive experience developing Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC), semiconductor memories (DRAM and variety of other types), and Programmable Logic (FPGA and PLD) products used in the design of digital computer and telecom systems. This expert has developed Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software products based on behavioral (C, Verilog and VHDL) synthesis and ASIC/FPGA placement-route (physical design). This expert created an engineering design methodology and directed a world-wide operation that released over 3000 gate array (ASIC) designs. This expert was a key contributor in development of various memory (DRAM, SRAM, & serial memory) and logic products. Several patents in semiconductor processing and device structures and ?C to RLT? software compiler technology was issued along with multiple Technical Disclosure Bulletins. This expert?s experience includes various types of re-configurable (Field Programmable Gate Array) logic hardware & software products.

This expert created an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) design methodology many years ago that incorporated scan test FlipFlops on IO cells that can be used to test internal operations of ICs. This ASIC design methodology was used to create over 3,000 IC designs, a few of which employed the expensive ?scan-test? capability.

This expert?s numerous expert reports and depositions in IC-related patent litigation cases have resulted in favorable settlements, and this expert has testified in court on IC cases as well. This expert has acquired extensive prior art documents and products over years in the industry. This expert has also provided technical background at the patent office during Re-Examination reviews and at court tutorials.
