Customer Quality Satisfaction (CQS) & Fab QA operation

 Periodically coordinate cross-dept with customers to review the quality issues. Take actions,
solve problems and feedback to customers timely.
 Monitor the procedures of any excursion and close up with 8D report.
 Handle customer special request (CCR), voice of complaints(VOC)
 Chair various committees for in-line process monitor and quality enhancement

IPDSQA( IP Design & Support Quality Assurance)

Supervising 9 engineers and fully responsible for IP quality, management, and ultimately to assure
the completeness, accuracy, competitiveness and friendliness of IP delivery. Main responsibilities

 Management & validation of IP developments with vendors

 Management & validation of IP development with internal design teams
 Institute SOPM (source & Origin Proactive Management) methodology to provide a robust
IP offerings.
 Developed MDCS (Macro Development Control System) to control IP tracking
 Vendor audit
 Customer’s VOC (Voice of Complaints) handlings.

DSMQA( Design Support Manual Quality Assurance)

Supervising 25 engineers and fully responsible for DSM developments to cope with new technology
migrations. Starting from TLR( Topology Rule), EDR( Electrical Design Rule), Mask Tooling
Rule, Intercap Rule to Spice model, all are developed and managed and distributed to customers.
Main tasks are:

 Schedule and allocate resources of the upcoming DSM from R&D

 Work with BU( Business Unit) to accommodate the customized DSM requirements
 Work with IT( Information Technology) to build a friendly interface for delivery flow.

verification and debug. The projects were finished on time on two different generation gateway

Sr Engineer/ Manager, Softcom Microsystem Inc (Acquired by Intel)

San Jose, CA 1996·2000

Joined the company as a founding member to develop the high speed network processor to process
high speed frames, ATM cells and packets at 622Mbps data rate, full duplex 66 MHz PCI and local
bus to achieve OC-12 line rate . The total gate count was about 800k plus memory with the
deployment of the then·most advanced 0.35u technology. Lead 10 engineers starting from coding
functional mode, gate-level design, post-layout simulation, back-end tape-out and final chip debug.
Finally caught Intel’s attention to acquire..

Staff Design Engineer, Telecommunication Dept, LSI logic

San Jose, CA 1994·1996

Developed and designed the next generation ATMizer. Starting from micro architecture definition
to backend activities. Main responsibilities were:
