Intel Corporation, Santa Clara CA 2/2005-7/2005
Component Design Engineer
- Validation of Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) chip using SpecmanElite and Verilog. Constructed infrastructure to validate interrupts to the embedded ARC microcontroller from internal and auxiliary sources. Validated watchdog, SerialIRQ, GPIO, and several other components. Please refer to “BMC” on http://www.intel.com/design/servers/se7501br2/ for details.
Xilinx, San Jose CA 1/2004-7/2004
- Worked on the Gigabit System Reference Design (GSRD) project for high bandwidth systems. Designed part of the Communication Direct Memory Access Controller (CDMAC). Added coalescing interrupts, timers, support for all byte lengths and byte offsets in memory addressing.
- Designed a system to perform 3:2 video pull-down in hardware using ML300 board. Allowed video to be displayed in a moving window with animated background, using virtually no CPU time. It was used to demonstrate bandwidth and CPU utilizing of GSRD.
- Wrote interface to access and demonstrate “SystemMonitor” features of the upcoming Virtex-4 FPGA chip on the ML300 board. Worked closely using Xilinx’s Embedded Development Kit (EDK).
- Green Soda Project is a real-time wireless energy monitoring, control, and visualization infrastructure for reducing energy consumption of Soda Hall. [http://local.cs.berkeley.edu/greensoda]
- ACme: Berkeley Wireless AC Meter/Switch is an open source hardware and software platform that enables wireless energy/power measurement and control of AC devices. ACme uses an IPv6 based mesh network that enables direct IP communication with individual ACme nodes. [http://acme.cs.berkeley.edu/]
- SPOT: Scalable Power Observation Tool enables in situ measurement of nodal power and energy over a dynamic range exceeding four decades (as small as μA) or a temporal resolution of microseconds.
- Prometheus is a multi-stage solar powered system architecture that utilizes sensor node’s microprocessor to intelligently and efficiently manage energy transfers between multiple storage elements, resulting in near perpetual operation. Prometheus is implemented in the Berkeley Trio motes.
- Ultrasonic Ranging is a range estimation device I designed for use in the Network Embedded Systems Technology (NEST) project for high-fidelity localization.
