Paulo Roberto B. de Carvalho is a Hardware and Digital IC Design Engineer with 6-years experience in microelectronic area in Digital IC Design, with specialization in RTL design optimization for area and power reduction, Verification and Physical Implementation flow. He has 10-years experience in Application Engineering, technical consultant and semiconductors manufacture processes. He received his bachelor degree in materials, processes and electronic components technology at Faculdade de Tecnologia de Sao Paulo (FATEC-SP) in 2006. In 2011, he joined the Brazillian Federal Government IC Brazil Program of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), trained in Digital Systems Design area. He received his Master of Science degree in Electric Engineering with specialization in Microelectronic area on Integrated Systems Laboratory at Electrical Engineering Department of Polytechnic School of University of Sao Paulo in 2016.
I received the B.S. degree in Industrial Electronics Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain, in 2007, and the M.S. degree in Micro- and Nanoelectronics Engineering in 2009 and the Ph.D. degree in Microelectronics and Electronic Systems in 2015 both from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. From 2006 to 2008, I was with Investigation Total Ware, S.A., Spain, where I was engaged in analog and mixed-signal circuit design for highly reliable wireless telecommunication systems. From 2008 to 2015, I was with the Integrated Circuits and Systems design group at the Institut de Microelectrònica de Barcelona, CNM, CSIC, Spain, designing low-power high-precision mixed-signal ASICs for integrated smart sensors and IP blocks. From 2015 to 2016, I was with Broadcom Ltd., Barcelona, Spain, developing low-power CMOS IPs like low-temperature-drift oscillators, varible-temperature-coefficient current/voltage generators, temperature sensors, cross-domain level shifting and biasing circuits, touch-sensor transmitter drivers. I am co-author of 12 publications and participant in several research and industrial projects using a wide range of CMOS technology nodes. I am recipient of the 2007 Highest Grade Point Average in the Graduating Class Award, the 2014 Best Paper Award and the 2015 Student Best Paper Award Honorable Mention. My skills include: high-performance continuous-time/switched-capacitor circuits such as low-power high-resolution ADCs/DACs using Class-AB OpAmps; system high-level modeling (SciPy/Sage, Matlab); system electrical-level modeling (Verilog/-A/-AMS); EKV circuit-level modeling; full-custom IC design cycle (gEDA Tools/Cadence Virtuoso: from schematics to layout and verification); development of low-noise and low-distortion test equipment (including microcontrollers and FPGAs) and software (using C++, Tcl, VB, Python); and, experimental IC measures and parameter extraction.
