Microprocessor Design Expert for IP Forensic Engineering
An engineering expert with a Ph.D. in computer science or electrical engineering was needed for a patent infringement action involving microprocessor design. The plaintiff, a company that developed and marketed microelectronic technologies, filed suit against a world leader in high technology products. The three patents in the case related to microprocessor design.
This microprocessor design expert has over 10 years of industry experience and over 10 years of academic research experience in microprocessor design. He is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering at a major university. He received his B.S.E.E., his M.S.E.E., and his Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering. This expert’s work focuses on the microarchitecture of low-latency, high-bandwidth memory hierarchies for high performance processors and the design of shared memory multiprocessor systems. He is also conducting research on the design and application of dynamic data dependence tracking hardware, multithreaded architectures, VLIW architectures for voice and video applications, and adaptive clustered microarchitectures. He holds five U.S. patents and is a Senior Member of the IEEE. IMS Reference #3731980
This microprocessor architecture expert has over 25 years of experience in hardware and software design and programming, and microprogramming. He earned his BA, MS and Ph.D. in computer science. This expert currently manages a group of processor designers and validation engineers responsible for implementing and validating modernized, compatible microprocessors. He has also designed and implemented new parallel processor architectures, as well as architectural extensions to existing microprocessor architectures. He has previously provided technical consulting and expert witness testimony in a firmware infringement case. In addition, he has provided technical advice as an expert in a case involving parallel processor architectures, and for a microprocessor patent infringement case involving virtual memory. The latter engagement included analysis of thousands of examples of the prior art, legal analysis of patents and depositions, transistor-level and gate-level circuit analysis, and microarchitecture analysis. IMS Reference #4978206
This microprocessor architecture expert is a professor at a large university. He earned a B.S.E.E., and his M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering. His research is in the areas of microprocessor architecture, compiler code generation/ optimization, and performance evaluation. He is a member of several high-level microelectronics industry research committees on microprogramming and microarchitecture. He also directs the project that creates new technology for high-performance microprocessors by breaking down the traditional layers of abstraction between the hardware, microarchitecture, instruction set, compiler, and operating system.
