The list of possible services is given as a guide only and can
be customized to suite your preferences.
To Established EDA Companies: Having worked in the EDA tool
development industry for over 20 years and been involved in some
of the most important developments in the functional verification
space. I can provide a lot of insights into what is happening in
the industry and where the markets are likely to go next. Recently
I have been tracking the developments of the Electronic System Level
(ESL) paradigm shift and have already helped a number of startup
companies identify their roles within this emerging space. My abilities
as a visionary have not gone unnoticed by the community. With two
patents issued and many more pending, I can provide both high level
and deep technical assistance in the creation of new technology.
I have good communications abilities, being able to produce high
quality technical papers, presentations materials as well as being
able to provide excellent delivery to both engineering people and
management. I have considerable experience with the legal side of
the industry as well and having acted as a technical mentor to a
number of lawyers. I can perform as a technical expert or in patent
To Startup Companies: Startup companies often
have great ideas and wonderful technology but sometimes they have
problems developing their business plans, creating marketing efforts
for their ideas and getting the technology adopted. I have performed
new market analysis in a number of areas, competitive product analysis,
technology evaluations, partnerships, joint development programs.
I can help with the development of marketing materials, white papers,
presentations and provide some temporary extra hands for new product
launches or promotions.
Here is what Simon Calder, the CEO of Spiratech
had to say about my services:
"We have embraced many if not all of your suggestions and have
experienced an instantaneous improvement in our how we are perceived,
especially by VCs"
To System Designers: Verification Assessment: It sometimes
takes an independent set of eyes to see what is and what
is not working in an organization. I have seen many ways
that companies organize their verification efforts and have helped
them to identify what they can do to improve based on their own
Knowledge Transfer: Keeping up with all the new languages, tools
and methodologies can be a nightmare. I can provide in house training
on many of the new developments and can prepare custom courses to
help complete engineering groups come up to speed.
Technology Adoption: Performing an evaluation or running a pilot
of a new methodology is always a good idea. This may require temporary
resources to accomplish these. In addition, when the pilot has been
a success, it may require considerable knowledge and planning to
ensure a successful adoption.
Other: I have performed many public speaking engagements
as a keynote speaker, technical presenter, business presenter and
guest speaker for Universities as a few examples. These have been
of varying lengths, ranging from half an hour to full days. They
have been conducted in countries all around the world and I pride
myself on providing the depth of information and a level of enthusiasm
in the presentation that ensures that the audience attention is
retained at all times. I prepare most of my own material, but I
can work with companies to customize for various needs. Please fill

if you are interested. There is no charge for Universities, except
to cover expenses.
