Industrial Experience

  • Senior Software Engineer/Technical Manager – Motorola CorTech , iDEN Advance Technology Group, Plantation, FL. Feb 2004 – June 2005
    • Technical lead in developing a virtual platform for simulating and modeling iDEN next generation cellphones to enable reduction in design cycle time. Tasks involved development, leading a group of 18 technical members, and coordinating work with two 3rd party groups. Contributions include developing the Statement Of Work for the project, developing IP modules at high level of abstraction, Verification and System Integration. The project was successfully implemented ahead of schedule aiding in reduction of over 10% of total design cycle time of next generation cellphone being developed. Successfully showcased many usecases including the dual processor based cellphone bootup sequence for WinCE and Linux. Presented and demoed internally at the Motorola – QTIPS’04.
