Walking backward and forward in case of mis-prediction was also carried out. Th e improved processer will be used as a Course Project in Digital System Design C ourse Electrical Engineering Intern (ITag) Jan 2010 - Present Research and Development of Phone Tracing Device using GPS Technology Summer Intern (CDAC Indian government R&D Institute) May 2008-Ju ly 2008 Worked on design of Ethernet 802.3 MAC Transmitter TECHNICAL SKILLS Languages: Verilog, VHDL, System C, C, C++, TCL Script, UCF, MATLAB, Assembly L anguage (8085/8086) Design Tools: Cadence Virtuoso, Xilinx ISE Web pack, ModelSim , Altera Quartus 2, ePD, HSPICE, Nanosim, Simple-Scalar, Real Estimator, Cacti, OrCAD, MultiSim, SPEC Benchmark , NCSim , Digilent Adept , Cosmoscope, DFT, Synopsys Design Compi ler Operating System: Win7/Vista/XP, UNIX PROJECTS: DDR2 SDRAM Memory Controller Design (Verilog): Controller to carry out Scalar, A tomic and Block Read/Write with Denali DDR2 Model using NC-Verilog. The controll er has a simple FIFO based front end Architecture. The code was synthesized usin g Synopsis Design Compiler with the help of TCL script. Test Generation for an FPGA Chip (C): Led a team of 5 to develop a test generati on system consisting of Preprocessor, an ATPG and a Fault Simulator. Designed a preprocessor whose task was creating a reduced fault list Using Fault Equivalenc e and Dominance and design of Good Circuit Simulator with Inertial, Rise and Fal l Delay Out of Order Processor using Tomasulo Algorithm (VHDL): Out of Order processor w hich used Register renaming to remove Date Hazards. Designed various units like

Instruction Fetch Unit, Dispatch Unit, Issue Unit, Reorder Buffer, Branch Predic tion Buffer. Synthesis was done using Xillinx ISE. The code was tested on Sparta n-3E FPGA 16 bit Motion Estimator for DSP (Cadence Virtuoso): ME kernel was designed whic h contained two 2.048 kb SRAM, 24 bit Ladner Fischer Adder and an accumulator. D RC and LVS was carried out on the layout. Stimulus file was written and result w as verified on Nanosim. Logical Efforts were used to reduce the delay in circuit . Neural Network chip Design (Cadence Virtuoso): Designed a neuron that emulated a football Quarterback. Efforts were made to reduce Area-Delay Product Performance Boosting of CPU (Simple Scalar, Real Estimator, Cacti): Reconfigured parameter of baseline processor to get higher MIPS rating Single Cycle, Multi Cycle, Pipelined CPU(ePD): Schematic level design was implem ented. Other HDL projects: Lux Meter, I2C, Keyboard Controller with Debounce, Pipelined CPU Extracurricular Activities/Achievements * Graded as superior student in Computer System Organization and Digital System Design Course * Won 2nd prize in VHDL coding completion in Kriti'08 at Raisoni College of Engi neering, Nagpur India. * Executive member of Communique a student's body during 3rd year of College
