Circuit Board Simulation Software Developer

Case Description:

A circuit board simulation software developer was needed for a misappropriation of trade secrets case involving software used in the design of integrated circuits. The plaintiff was a world leader in semiconductor design software and had also developed software used to design systems-on-chips (SoCs) and other electronic systems. The plaintiff claimed that their former employees failed to disclose various corporate opportunities and stole trade secrets to create a new company that developed flagship circuit board simulation software.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to find circuit board simulation software development experts familiar with Software Process Improvement Capability Determination (SPICE) based circuit board simulation tools. The experts also needed to have sufficient knowledge of C++ source code.

Experts Presented:

  • Integrated Circuit Design

    This integrated circuit expert has a B.S.E.E. and is experienced in integrated circuits, circuit board simulation software development, and SPICE simulations. He has written books on SPICE operation and has developed numerous SPICE models. He directs circuit analysis projects for integrated circuit manufacturers specializing in the features, functions and performance of SPICE simulators. IMS Reference #4330634

  • SPICE

    This SPICE expert has an M.A. in Physics and has worked with electronic circuits and circuit board simulation software for more than 20 years. He wrote a very successful SPICE program for non-EDA applications. In fact, this program is often used as a sales tool to promote an integrated circuits business line. He is very knowledgeable in C++ source code as well as Berkeley SPICE, PSpice and X-Spice applications. IMS Reference #4331577
