Starkey Hearing Technologies 12/16 – 11/17

Principal IC Design Engineer Eden Prairie, MN

Responsible for all timing closure activities on their 40nm ultra low power ASIC

Synopsys flow: DC-Graphical for RTL synthesis, ICC Place & Route, ICV, and PrimeTime/SI/PTPX for STA and Power estimation

LSI/LSI Corporation/Avago Technologies/Broadcom 11/99 – 11/16

Principal Customer Design Engineer Mendota Heights, MN

Extensive use of PrimeTime, PrimeTime-GCA, Design Compiler, Design Compiler-Topographical and ICC to close timing with 65nm and 28nm ASIC technology

Several years of experience on complex low power 28nm designs that utilize UPF to define multiple power domains running at different voltages

Recognized PrimeTime STA and timing closure specialist for BroadCom

Timing constraint generation/debug for customer and BroadCom IP constraints

Hold several patents related to timing closure scripts

SNUG award winner for paper on how PrimeTime-GCA speeds up timing closure

Staff Advanced Design Analysis/Modeling Engineer Houston, TX

Timing closure on 90nm SAS Expander chip

Performed PT-SI signoff STA and constraint debug on several 90nm SAS RAID-on-Chip(ROC) chips

Staff SAS ROC Design Engineer Houston, TX

Synthesized verilog RTL with Design Compiler and STA with PrimeTime for 90nm SAS 2.0 ROC chips

Wrote and debugged verilog simulation regression tests

Ran Equivalency checking on RTL (Cadence Conformal and Synopsys Formality)

Worked with third party IP vendors to make their RTL more timing closure friendly

Staff ASIC Design Closure Engineer Bloomington, MN

Specialized skills in SoC static timing analysis, design planning, logical/physical optimization, and IP timing models

Assisted in timing closure on several ASIC designs greater than 10M gates with large quantities of clock domains, soft/firm/hard IP, and many types of memories

Extensive work with timing driven placement/routing/physical synthesis/optimization tools including LSI’s proprietary MPS, MRS, Synopsys Physical Compiler, Synplicity AmplifyRapidChip, Synopsys(Avanti) Jupiter/Apollo/Astro/Saturn/Milkyway

Working with various EDA vendors (Synopsys, Magma, Synplicity, Cadence, etc.) to improve quality of tools and evaluate potential tools to add to FlexStream (build vs. buy)

Working with LSI IP groups (CoreWare groups) and external IP vendors to model timing of IP and ensure smooth implementation into FlexStream, RapidWorx

Develop and maintain several proprietary tools (written in Python, Perl, Tcl, C++) for FlexStream and RapidWorx

Honeywell SSEC 1/93 – 10/99

Design Automation/Customer Design Engineer Plymouth, MN

Assisted customers in using SSEC’s ASIC design flow to ensure first-pass success, from RTL netlist synthesis through static-timing and simulation to test

Served as interface between customers and engineers for SSEC’s 1M+ gate HX3000 technology

Made several customer presentations for the HX3000 technology

Developed and maintained software, written in C and PASCAL, for the VLSI Design System(VDS) toolkits

Support marketing and program managers in sales pitches and VDS toolkit questions

Transistor level design of SSI components

Worked three months in Florida helping customers use the VDS toolkit and helping translate an existing microprocessor design into Honeywell technology

Design and implementation of regression tests for VDS toolkit software using configuration management tools


Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, University of Minnesota, June 1995

Completed several graduate level courses in VLSI design at the U of M – Twin Cities
