VLSI design engineer with 15 years of experience seeking for new opportunities to leverage his skills: robust circuit design, variation analysis, tools and methodologies for interaction between process, library and design flow, low power design, high performance design.
Member of team that delivered line of Intel Core i3/i5/i7 microprocessor families and multiple SOC design families targeted at the full range of mobile devices (from phones to tablets). Contributed on delivery high performance standard cell libraries for Intel Core products: Westmere 32nm Intel process, Haswell 22nm, Broadwell 14nm, Cannonlake 10nm and low power 14nm libraries for multiple Intel mobile projects. Worked on standard library circuit robustness, analyzing circuits and flows to ensure silicon robustness under the full range of process variability, voltage, temperature and stress. Expertise in transistor variation library collateral, library content definition, process scaling and library impact. Level shifter, clock and custom cells design. Layout and electrical quality verification, library collateral consistency with design flow tools validation, developing and supporting automated tools and flows. Examples of full cycle novel cell processing from cell design to usage in chip design: 1) AOI sequential cell robustness and silicon risk assessment, power benefit estimation, SOC flow experiments resulted in AOI cell insertion by DC and ICC for 14nm low leakage process SOC designs; 2) reduced pin capacitance flop robustness assessment and silicon risk analysis, power benefit estimation resulted in improving of 10nm high performance library. Developed tools examples: 1) unified all cell test case regression system for validation timing library collateral, electrical rule checks and layout quality (DRC, density, cell abutment); 2) automated flow for accounting variation and aging hold time degradation and library collateral generation.
