EDUCATION

University of Washington-Seattle Seattle, WA

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Jun.2020 Concentration: VLSI

Current GPA: 3.82/4.0

Honors: Dean’s List for consecutive two years

Relevant Coursework: VLSI design introduction, Digital circuits & states, Device/Circuit (MOSFET), Circuit Theory, Computer programming I & II, Continuous Time linear system, Technical Communication RESEARCHES

Course Design: 16 bits ALU (65nm) Nov.23-Dec.7,2019 Responsibility:

Designed a 16 bits ALU that could perform six computations (Add, Subtract, And, Not, Xor, Or) with delay less than 1.2ns

Developed the ALU that has the minimum energy, delay and energy-delay product

Drew layout with minimum area and clear schematic Software: Cadence

Achievement: Gained more experience about critical path and gate sizing, layout track planning, and how to make design trade-offs; strengthened expertise of group-based working projects; acquired more knowledge about computer processor and its internal structure.

Course Design: 16 bits, 13 entry Register File (65nm) Nov.7-Nov.17,2019 Responsibility:

•Designed and drew out the schematic and layout using cadence virtuoso

•Wrote vector file to test functionality and control file to do measurements

•Adjusted gate sizing to reduce delay

Software: Cadence

Achievement: Familiarized with how hard group working project is in VLSI design; understood how design is critical to maximize productivity and reduce efforts; got in touch with how a great quantity of design are assembled and designed. Course Project: Linear Feedback shift Register (LFSR) (65nm) Oct. 27-Nov. 6,2019 Responsibility:

•Designed and built the schematic and layout of flipflop that are used to build the LFSR using cadence virtuoso with restriction of 5um using our own developed cell instead of standard cell

•Assembled a 16 bits LFSR using flipflop and other gates to achieve functionality

•Compiled a control file to collect data

Achievement: Developed a better understanding of how to maximize the area in a design; became more familiar with the layout construction and DRC, LVS tools; accumulated more experience on how to write control file for measurements. Nanotube Sensor Fabrication Oct.2019-present

Responsibility:

•Build sensors that have some resistance varied based on ammonia concentration in the air

•Build PEI doped or Nafion doped based on different usage Achievement: Improve understanding of fabrication which can refine my design process; boost communication and cooperative skills.

Course project: DC-to-DC Voltage Multiplier Jun.1-Jun.7,2018 Responsibility:

•Applied DC-to-AC inverter to transfer it to an AC signal

•Used half-wave rectifier to generate a perfect square 10V wave

•Utilized two inverter oscillators to transfer the AC voltage to DC voltage 20V with ripple less than 1% Equipment: DC-to-AC inverter, oscilloscope, function generator, multimeter, MOSFET Achievement: Developed a better insight into MOSFET and how real-life voltage multiplier works; improved hands-on ability.

Course Design: Verilog Elevator Program May 26-Jun.4,2018 Responsibility:

•Programmed for a simple elevator that can be applied to real life using Verilog

•Ran simulation to make sure it meets requirements Software: Verilog, FPGA board

Achievement: Developed a better knowledge of Verilog programming to solve real-world problems. EXPERIENCES
