Research
  • Research and Development Experience: Successfully explored, designed, implemented, and tested highly specialized computer system for medical application that introduced new features, improved the efficiency and offered significant flexibility for biomedical applications in the field of neurology.
  • Designed and implemented a full custom mixed signal RISC processor from concept to realization.
  • Designed an interface card with an FPGA to manage the data communication between a host computer and a transmitter.
  • Developed an application software that automated the microcode generation for a dedicated processor and provided the communication protocol between a host computer and a transmitter control card.
  • Innovated new algorithms, which made major enhancements to the VLSI back-end tools such as DRC and mask pattern generator. Coded the algorithms as transportable package. The package incorporated in the design flow methodology and made available to all Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC) VLSI community.
