Shadi Hawawini is currently working as a senior application engineer for Summit Microelectronics, primarily responsibly for their programmable switch-mode Li-ion battery chargers, as well as programmable power management IC’s (PMIC’s). Shadi has authored numerous articles for industry publications like Bodo’s Power and was awarded the top 10 power management 'How To' design articles of 2008 by EETimes.
Shadi is currently an MSEE graduate student at Santa Clara University with a concentration in Analog Design, and graduated from San Jose State University in 2005 with a BSEE.
Frank Gurtovoy graduated from San Jose State University in 2005 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Since then, Frank has been working at Verigy, formally Agilent’s Automated Test Equipment group, as an Applications Engineer working with start-up companies in the Silicon Valley.
Frank has been supporting technologies and developing and implementing test and production solutions ranging from high speed interfaces to RF SOCs. Frank’s areas of research interests are in developing new test and measurement techniques to reducing cost of test for RF devices.
Darryl Phillips received the B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering (BSEL) from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, in 1993 and is attending Santa Clara University for a M.S. degree. He has been working as an Analog Semiconductor Applications Engineer in Silicon Valley since 1994.
Darryl’s research interests are in Switching Power Supply Design and Synthesis for which he has articles published in the industry trade journals such as EDN, and Electronic Design.
Edward Kim has over 20 years in design experience in designing at Samsung Electronics in Korea, Silicon Image Inc. and Leadis Tech. Inc, in USA . I received the B.S from Han-Yang University in Korea and is pursuing to be MS in Santa Clara University.
I started my career as an a-Si TFT LCD module circuit design engineer [1986 - 1990], and a senior researcher of designing TFT LCD row/column driver IC at Samsung electronics. [1991-1998]. I joined Silicon Image at 1998 and developed a new driving method between controller and display driver, which is a kind of a SERDES technique.[1998-2002]. I have joined a new start-up company, Leadis Tech. Inc, developing Passive OLED driver IC and medium voltage display driver IC, and developed the world first 1Million Color Passive OLED display driver and also have developed Active matrix LTPS display driver for QVGA size.[2003-2006]
Currently I am working for Silicon Image Inc, and I have designed the 3G/5G transmitter for data communication and am designing Special I/O pads.[2006~ current]
Priyam Khanna graduated in Electrical Engineering from Bharati Vidyapeeth, Pune, India in 2007. He is a certified designer in layout from University of California, Santa Cruz (extension – Bangalore) and has experience on the Cadence suite of design tools.
After his BE degree and subsequent certification, he worked as a PCB design engineer with a start – up firm Colorjet India at NOIDA, near Delhi in India. He joined the San Jose State University during August 2009 in pursuit of MS and completed its first semester during which he worked on a digital CMOS project "QIF based neuron model".
Currently he is pursuing MSEE and research work under the guidance of Prof. Talal at the Santa Clara University. He is working on areas like mictroctrip patch antennas, Smart Grid and RF transceivers.
