Capabilities

Experience

  • Designed receivers and transmitters of the RF chips used in Intel Corporation’s first Wi-Fi Cards (Centrino and Centrino Duo Mobile Platforms). Contributions to technologies that changed the face of personal communications worldwide.
  • Designed and developed Intel’s first Integrated CMOS RF Power Amplifiers for Wi-Fi.
  • Managed full project lifecycle to increase long-term RF reliability and to limit performance degradation of Intel’s Centrino chips.
  • Developed highly complex Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) power amplifier design for the Israeli Ministry of Defense. Success of this design prompted the channeling of $10+ million by the Israeli Ministry of Defense and a ten-fold increase in engineering staff to incorporate millimeter-wave MMIC and high frequency packaging technology into military systems.
