- Drove software development as a priority resulting in increased lab productivity and responsiveness with industry-first and -best QA and documentation methods. Lab became industry leader eliminating SPICE models as #1 concern among circuit designers. Software tools integral to lab becoming industry leader.
- Created C tools to test MOSFET model statement for erratic behavior using simulated data and first- and second derivatives, an industry first and competitive advantage. Tool became critical in productizing industry-standard BSIM3 MOSFET model from UC Berkeley. Supported HSPICE, SABER and Spectre commercial simulators.
- Wrote tools documenting SPICE model overlay charts in booklets educating customers on how models simulated measured data, an industry first. Reverse-engineered how commercial plotting software stored data developing code to create tool acceptable tables.
- Wrote C and Perl tools documenting SPICE model overlay plots on the web, an industry first. Reduced documentation time from 1 week (booklets) to 45 minutes.
- Developed Excel-based applications for flicker noise and DC data that saved customers 'a week of work' and 'almost immeasurable' (>80%) time doing analysis/QA/documentation. The 1/f tool empowered the color-blind customer to remove buried outlier data based on innovative r2-based scores and tweak parameter fits with sliders on large datasets.
