Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




My 3 main research interests are embedded processor design, parallel processor embedded systems on chip, and low power SRAM design. Recently I have been working on a new SRAM cell with potential for using leakage power to pre-charge busses.
In past years I have been very involved with the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation and their university program. I have been on numerous CMC committees, and was once a CMC board member.




15.

Industrial and related experience.




I founded Cogent ChipWare Inc. in Nov. 1999, and eventually assumed the roll of Chief Technical Officer. Just past mid 2002 Cogent had 16 employees, a customer, and a working silicon prototype for a potential product. At the end of 2002, the customer broke the development agreement due to their own hard times. Cogent tried to recover from this until January 2004, at which point the final few employees were laid off. These engineers now work for various companies around the lower mainland. Cogent designed a sophisticated embedded processor in 130nm CMOS, and had it fabricated. It worked on first silicon. I got 3 patents for Cogent and SFU transferred a 4th to the company. All 4 patents were recently sold.
In past years, I was quite involved with PMC Sierra both as consultant and researcher. Through Micronet, I have had some interaction with Gennum, MOSAID, and Zarlink (formerly Mitel).




16.

Honours and Awards, other pertinent information.




Due to my involvement with Cogent ChipWare, I took a leave from SFU during 2002-2003. From 2000 to 2004 I was very involved with the company, so my publications and research funds were reduced during this time. The company raised over $2.5M for research and development. I wrote numerous articles for the company in the form of memos, white papers, and specification documents.
I am now on a half-time appointment with the School of Engineering Science.

Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




The research group that I have been supervising has been working on the physical (PHY) layer research problems of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Communications since September 2003. The research group has so far contributed to the UWB communications area by proposing new signalling formats for both high-rate and low-rate communications and by addressing the related research issues including the performance analysis in realistic channels, channel characterization, coexistence and spectrum compliance.

As a result of our high-rate UWB communications research, we have filed a US patent application for our newly proposed signalling scheme.

The low-rate UWB communications research has generated two main contributions, namely an international contribution to the standardization process of IEEE 802.15.4a and a national contribution in terms of collaboration with a local company (Verichip).




15.

Industrial and related experience.




July 1997 - June 1998

Consultant, SAMSUNG Electronics Co. Ltd., Institute of Information and Communication.

Has been involved in ‘3rd-generation wideband CDMA (WCDMA)’ standardization activities together with researchers at the Institute and provided consulting for them to prepare a preliminary SAMSUNG proposal for the IMT-2000 PHY standard meeting, organized by ARIB in Japan and EDGE in Europe.


March 1993 - December 1998

Invited Lecturer, SAMSUNG Electronics Co. Ltd., Advanced Technology Center.

Has developed three new courses on ‘Wireless and Mobile Communications’ at the Center for practical training purpose: 1) Digital Mobile Communications, 2) Digital Spread Spectrum Communications, 3) Wireless Personal Communications, while teaching from 1993 up to 1998. The purpose is to provide the researchers with basic understanding and development skills for ‘CDMA-based Cellular System Test bed’.
