Digital IC Design Researcher Intern, MediaTek Austin May. 2017 – Dec. 2017

• Designed and implemented customized 6T cell SRAM with 2.5GHz working frequency using TSMC 7nm; Simulated design using XA to verify the functionality and timing of the SRAM; Went through the SRAM CAD flow of Synopsys ESP-CV equivalent and redundancy check as well as the Totem EMIR post layout check

• Developed a tool using Verilog and Perl script that can prototype an area efficient on-chip programmable unit on which the user can program designs after tape out. The programmable unit constructed with SRAM blocks which possess FPGA features but occupies less area on-chip. The tool prototypes the mapping process by automatically synthesizing an input RTL design and using Min. cut algorithm to partition the design into small pieces then map into the FPGA-like programmable unit.
