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), Preditor, pdFab, CODEF, and CARAMEL.
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 I created.
