Coursework and Projects

ECE 546 VLSI System-- Design 128-bit synchronous SRAM Physical Design Designed a 128-bit synchronous SRAM in standby mode using 15nm Fin FET technology libraries at 0.8 V supply voltage using Cadence Virtuoso. Optimized the design for the minimum product of energy, delay, and area.

ECE 733 Digital Electronics-- Transceiver and Equalizer Design:

Design of a 1-bit wide 45nm Digital Transceiver capable of operating at 5.7 GHz achieving a BER of better than 10 12 over a 100cm lossy transmission line. It has a post-cursor fixed weight equalization circuit having 2 taps to equalize the channel.

ECE 733 Digital Electronics-- Low Power AMD Pulse Triggered Flip Flop: Design and Optimization of a Pulse Triggered Flip Flop for low power using various sizing and Multi threshold transistor techniques achieving a power of 7.9 μW within specified timing constraints i.e. Td q <100 ns and t_Aperture < 75 ns.

ECE 739 IC’s & Fabrication Fabrication and Characterization of Ring MOSFETs, PN Junction diodes: Used Various Industry Standard fabrication techniques to simulate the characterization of MOSFETs and PN Junction Diodes and testify their respective functionality.

ECE 520 ASIC Design--ASIC Hardware Accelerator Inversion of Tri-Diagonal matrix:

Designed a Pipelined Hardware Accelerator to compute the inversion of a 10x10 tridiagonal matrix in Verilog RTL. Used Design Ware Library to integrate components and Synopsys Design Vision to perform synthesis; Optimized for Area Delay product.

ECE 745 ASIC Verification-- Verification of LC3 Microprocessor (System Verilog):

Developed hierarchical test bench for functional verification of LC3 microcontroller. Implemented Monitor, Driver and Scoreboard modules on multiple DUT Interfaces with Transaction-level modeling. Generated Constrained Random test cases to drive stimulus and created coverage model to comply with verification plan by writing Cover groups and Coverage bins.

ECE 561 Embedded System-- This side Up-Energy Optimization (FRDM-KL25Z Board):

Prototyped an orientation monitoring device on KL25Z microcontroller board. The angular tilt of the device is monitored by flashing multiple LED’s – Red, Yellow, and Green for different angles. Optimized the code to maximize the energy used by the device – function 12 minutes for a 30-second capacitor charge.

ECE 521 Computer Design Technology-- Cache Simulator (C language): Modelled an L1 + L2 level cache configurable simulator with LRU, Pseudo-LRU and FIFO replacement policies. The simulator models Inclusive, Non- inclusive and Exclusive inclusion policies. The functionality is verified by comparing processor set instructions on the simulator.

Real-Time Automated Agricultural System (Undergraduate Capstone): Used ARM 7 architecture based microcontroller to monitor moisture, temperature and humidity of the soil along with water level in storage. Developed a GSM integrated system to provide real-time information to the user via SMS and modernize irrigation practices of a farm.

Line Follower Robot (Undergraduate):

Designed an Arduino based line follower robot. The bot detects the black line on the ground based on a feedback mechanism which ensures the course and maneuvering of the robot.


• Secured first runner-up position for line follower competition in AHVAAN Tech Fest 2013, an event organized by Gujarat Technological University.

• Best Art Entry Award by Camlin India for creativity and artistic excellence.
