I've been working in EDA for about seven years now, both as an individual contributor and as a team leader. My focus has been on digital design, particularly the challenges faced during synthesis and implementation. Over the past two years, my focus has been enhanced to include all things power related.

Cadence and Very Cool Stuff
One of the very cool things about my job is that I get to see all kinds of new stuff early. I’m privileged to be involved in technology roll outs, and so get to be involved in early discussions with R&D, Product Engineering, and Marketing. And   Read More »

Actually, It Is Easy Being Green
Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a leadfoot. I like to go fast, especially off stop lights. Maybe it is the competitive streak in me, but I love to be the first off a light. Or maybe it is just me showing the BMW drivers that my Hyundai can   Read More »

Pretty Scary, Huh Kids?
In honor of Halloween, here are some horror stories about low power bugs. These are real bugs at real customers that would have led to real dead chips. Horror story #1: It was a dark and stormy night… Ok, it was around lunch time. But a customer   Read More »

I’ve shied away from getting into the power format wars – honestly, the whole question kind of bores me. I think everyone can agree that specifying your power intent in a single file that drives all the tools in the flow is a good thing. The   Read More »
