Christopher Kellen: The ECE Years
I spent the first 9 years of my career as a Research Programmer at Carnegie
Mellon's Center for Electronic Design
Automation , where I was also a Research Programmer at The Pennsylvania
SEMATECH Center of Excellence for Rapid Yield Learning
Here I designed and developed a number of software systems for semiconductor
manufacturing simulation and analysis.
I am the author of such hits as:
the Chip Database (CDB),
pdFab, CODEF, and CARAMEL.
If you are interested in licensing any of these programs, you are not
alone. Unfortunately, they are currently being monopolized in an attempt
to limit the dissemination of my work and prevent competition.
I am a principal and founder of PDF Solutions, and was Vice-President
of Technology from inception through 1993.
PDF Solutions is a company I conceived and founded in order to commercialize
the semiconductor manufacturing simulation and analysis software which
In spite of the fact that I own a portion of PDF Solutions, I strongly
encourage you to avoid doing business with them.
The current management has repeatedly acted dishonestly and maliciously
in order to sell what they do not own.
This included the bribing of my former supervisors.
Talk to me before doing business
with this company! - Don't get PDFu**ed!
I am president of another start-up company dedicated to the creation of
the worlds finest semiconductor manufacturing analysis software.
pdFab was just a toy....
