Work Experience

1.Intel, San Jose, CA

SoC Design Engineer – Apr 2016 – July 2017

I created a complete UVM based test bench environment from scratch for Stratix 10 products verification and added complete test suites based on the feature lists and requirements for different release phases.

I prepared status tracking and scheduling documents with coverage numbers for internal and external stakeholders.

Being a senior designer, I also created dashboard to reflect project schedule/progress, milestone reviews, issue updates across releases.

2.VSS Monitoring, Sunnyvale, CA

Verification Engineer – Mar 2013 – July 2015

I created various test benches using System Verilog and UVM. I also created test plans focusing on coverage and strategy for testing.

I mentored new college grads and actively participated in the hiring process to hire senior engineers to create a strong team for high quality releases under tight schedules.

I also worked on the side with the Product Management team and created a PRD, roadmap, business model and go-to market strategy for a new product line based on deep packet analysis for data monitoring and network analysis. The complete product release was divided into 4 phases based on mid and long-term business opportunities.

I was frequently involved in technical discussions with the Product and Sales teams to design and implement business solutions for new customers.

3.Nethra Imaging, Santa Clara, CA

ASIC Verification Engineer - Feb 2010 – June 2011

I worked at block level and full chip level verification covering all aspects of verification from RTL level to the gate level for the company’s image processing products.

I did market research on commercially available sensors for image processing and created a PRD for a generic sensor model that would be the starting point of the image processing pipeline. I then designed the sensor model in System Verilog and C++.

I worked with the chief architects, designers, software and firmware groups to get the ASIC delivered on time.

4.Cortina Systems, Sunnyvale, CA

Member of Technical Staff - May 2006 - Jan 2008

I verified the data path for various products used for Switching and Routing using Verilog at block and full chip level.

I created and modified test benches, test plans, and test cases for traffic management, bridging and switching products for the complete ASIC.

I verified the packet forwarding, learning, aging, policing, shaping and all other L2 – L3 level features in simulations and on FPGA for the pre-Si phase.

5.San Jose State University

Graduate Assistant and Verilog Lab In-Charge - Sep 2005 – Dec 2005

I mentored and guided graduate students from varied industrial backgrounds and technical skills, reviewed and provided suggestions on their grad projects.

I conducted periodic teaching sessions for Verilog.
