My designs still widely used by customers (6 years so far). Corresponding ASICs shipped 1 M chips per quarter (since 2011).
  • Resolved chips/ semiconductors output stability/ reliability budgeting/ growth modeling issues and improved the product line efficiency by 40% faster. Establishing customer testing strategy/ plan (Prototype, Motherboard & Server) to reduce error rates. Managed overseas product design.
  • Debugging PCIe/ SATA/ SAS/ RAIDn/ SerDes/ DDR3 timing model in traces analyzer (lane skew, signal integrity, intermittent issues, x1 to x16 width, error traffic summary, color/ colour accuracy/ coding, triggering, STLC, defect/ bug tracking) (AHCI, IDE, NVMe, & SerDes), between Physical, Data, and Network Links, of OSI model, with Teledyne LeCroy Summit trace analyzer-10 Gbps (GT/s) (DLLP, TLP) (network protocol view, transaction view, OOB, L1, L2, (.pex) & SerialTek BusXpert trace analyzer (.ccsas), and PCIe CV 146 / 1485 Compliance/ Standard tests. Also with Spirent protocol, Mobile MIPI, NBASE-T, M-PHY, D-PHY, Ethernet-Mac (6 Gbps) lab tests (mod proprietary scripts). Work with ASIC group to detect & root cause analysis in the bug reports (JMP tool, os, bios & device driver fw) for released products & speed up the production line by 100%.
  • Failure analysis of RMA (Return Merchant Authorization/ complaints): coordinate Validation (EVT/ DVT/ PVT), ATE, PLL Jitter/ regression-scatter/ Benchmark/ Wi-Fi tests, max EYE (PAM4) diagram, RF or FPGA device/ iso-9001 environment, MM camera mechanics, GPU/CPU, WLAN, & QA/FA teams, as a team lead to monitor customer feedbacks to drive for answers for key milestones/ PCBA manufacture process/ issues (for PC, Enterprise applications & wearable platforms with Forum s/w support). Result (as a Program Manager): re-open product lines, near zero chip-rejection and regain customers confidence for 4 key projects.
