Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 2005 to Present Employer: Undisclosed Title: Vice President, IP Advisory Services Department: Responsibilities: Expert supports the company's advisory services and helps clients develop IP business strategies, perform due diligence on investment opportunities, evaluate and value licensing and brokering opportunities, and develop defensive licensing strategies and tactics. Expert has worked extensively in the areas of wireless/wireline communications and semiconductor industries, including engagements involving determining patent essentiality to 3G/4G wireless standards, assembling defensive patent strategies, IP monetization, and IP due diligence for client M&A activities. Additional engagements span IP valuation, IP strategy and best practices, and buy-side and sell-side patent brokering.
Years: 2002 to 2005 Employer: CONEXANT Title: Technical Manager Department: Responsibilities: Technical Manager with responsibility to develop high performance silicon IP for DSL broadband modem applications for US, Europe, and Asia. His team developed a flexible DSP PHY core used as the PHY for all CO/CPE DSL chips from Conexant. The productivity improvements gained enabled the
company to improve from one release per year to many. Responsibilities included architecture definition of DSP & VLIW processors, technical design reviews, project management, design and development, test insertion and design for manufacturability, physical design, and signoff review and release to the factory. Also, responsible for career development, goal setting, recruitment, and performance reviews for development engineers in the VLSI department.
1st generation VDSL modem is currently in production under the product name Accelity Family of VDSL modems, 2nd generation is currently undergoing product qualification. The VDSL products have put Conexant in a market
leadership position for VDSL offerings.
Years: 1999 to 2003 Employer: XIT TECH / SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO Title: Founder & Managing Director Department: Responsibilities: One product developed under contract was an IC for the emerging satellite radio market. His team developed an FPGA based hardware prototype of the baseband digital demodulator for the Sirius Radio satellite receiver. Several
product demonstrations for key investors were made using the XIT Tech developed baseband prototype. The prototype was fine tuned, and a chip was produced for a high volume vehicle based satellite receiver.
This product is the key part of a chip set that generated approximately $60M in annual chip revenues for LSI/Agere Systems Inc. in 2004 (more in 2005!) and has helped launch a revolution in the radio broadcast industry through Sirius' product and service offerings.
Years: 1994 to 1999 Employer: SYNOPSYS INC Title: Consulting Manager Department: Responsibilities: Synopsys is a leading supplier of silicon IP and design automation tools to develop silicon IP. His role as a Consulting Manager was to build and manage a local team to work with clients in the Northeast developing bleeding edge silicon IP using a High Level Design methodology to achieve productivity
improvements. During this effort, he hired a team of ten engineers, performed bid and proposal work, and worked closely with sales team to close business. During this time his team worked on several major projects: Philips Firewire, Lucent SONET STS-3 Time Slot Interchange & SONET Access Interface,
HDTV Video Compression, and more.
In 1999 the Northeast region was the number one revenue generating region for Synopsys Worldwide Professional Services Group and he led the technical selling and execution of the largest revenue projects.
Years: 1986 to 1994 Employer: AT&T BELL LABS Title: MTS Department: Responsibilities: As a Member of the Technical Staff, Expert worked in R&D labs that produced some of the worlds best known IP. One invention led to the issue of a US Patent, which dynamically inserts data into an existing wireless air interface. Other projects he worked on include a CDMA transmiter chip, DS3 and
SONET switch chip, a DSP based speaker phone for a cell phone handset, Viterbi & BCH decoders for a wireless mobile terminal, and an FSK modem.
