Web Development, Book Authoring, Industry Reporting, and Design of IP Cores and ICs
As a master of science of one of the top universities in China and as a PhD candidate of several top world universities, I possess sound foundation of semiconductor physics as well as basics of analog and digital ICs and components. I am familiar with the semiconductor components and CMOS processing technologies as well.
I am an experienced chip designer with more than 8 years of design career. I am particularly specialized in FPGA, DSP, SOC and RF design and I am also skilled at designing mixed analog and digital circuits. Since 2009 I entered into the VLSI industry and have designed numerous chips in various industry fields for a number of clients.
English has been my working language for long and hence my proficiency of English is at the native level. I used to be one of the key personnel in multinationals of the non-silicon industries in earlier days of my career.
Website for the Latest Information of the World's IC Technology & Industry
I am developing a portal for the IC industry. Its aim is to provide users access to all key development on the research, development, design and manufacturing of IC technologies. Following contents will be covered:
Research on basic IC theory - research results of major universities and research institutions (including research institutions affiliated to large companies) in the world;
Chip design: new chip design theory, algorithm, language, model, software (EDA) and platforms, new chip design results, including IP cores;
Chip product development: model product development, testing and trial production (before mass production);
Chip manufacturing: new manufacturing technologies and new technology nodes (including main processes, materials, processes, equipment, and software).
Users can get the latest technical information on this website. At present, the basic framework and codes of the website are basically completed, and parts of the content are also published.
There is no similar website in the world.
In addition, the website has opened up a special database about modem chip IP cores, and users can browse the basic information of the main modem IP cores, which is the introduction of the main content of these IP cores. The main reason for designing such content is that I specially design the modem chip, so I pay special attention to this part of the technology.
The other part of the website is to introduce the book about IP core design that I am writing now, written in English, with the title "Silicon IP-More than just Design". The main reason for the slow progress in writing is that there is too much work to do: developing and maintaining websites, designing IP cores, writing books on chips, business contacts, and other things.
The website also introduces the "Monthly Report on World IC Technology Progress" compiled by me.
The website has also opened a forum, waiting for you to settle in and publish your opinions.
There are also search functions, conducting surveys, and user registration and user information management, uploading your own news (the progress of your company’s chip technology). The functions of the website will gradually increase and improve as the development progresses.
If you are interested in participating in the website project, please feel free to contact us. You may invest in, or promote the website. However, the content of the website is currently only in English and is geared towards English-speaking countries. Whether the Chinese version will be added in the future depends on the situation. And the website cannot be accessed by domestic users for some reason.
My goal is to build the best network platform to introduce the world's chip technology progress. If you want to understand the chip technology, you only need to go to this platform.
Book titled “Silicon IP – More than just Design”
This book or rather a platform, a knowledge center, an information hub or an interactive venue on the Internet is being prepared along with my design work. It contains all aspects of the IP core business, industry, technology as well as design process. It will become a book in huge volume - perhaps thousands of pages in A4 size, possibly web based and forever-updated (in the area of IP Core) with an interim title of "Silicon IP – More than just Design". The topic will go far beyond just the design aspect of the IP industry, and it will eventually all major sectors of this business. I will publish a small part of it in document formats such as Word or PDF, and also a small part of it will be made available at my website. But if you want more, you need pay for them.

Design of Modem - Modulator & Demodulator - IP Cores
My current design focuses on modulation and demodulation IC cores for satellite broadband Internet and wireless communications.I orient myself as one of the top modem (modulation + demodulation) IC designers for satellite broadband Internet.
I have been concentrating on satellite and wireless communications over the last couple of years, specializing in modulation and demodulation for satellite broadband and wireless communications in the DVB standard series. I have studied satellite and wireless communications over the last couple of years, concentrating on modulation and demodulation for satellite broadband uplink communications in the DVB standard series. I have designed a demodulator IP core based on FPGA and CMOS, and I am preparing for another modem IP core based on probably SDR/DSP etc. In addition I have been preparing for a book called "Modulation and demodulation IC design for satellite communications" with special focus on broadband Internet uplink and LEO satellites operating according to DVB standards.
My designs are involved in satellite / wireless communications, modulation and demodulation, error correction and coding technologies and some wireless communications technologies, as well as IC design technologies, tools and methodologies. I am developing my modem ICs with the latest reconfigurable technologies based mainly on FPGA. On the FPGA many processing units such as GPU, DSP are integrated which can make the modems compatible with as many communications protocols, standards and modulation schemes as possible. I've developed some separate IPs such as modulators, and demodulators and at the moment I am working on a modulator based in FPGA, HDL and others to cope with several modulation schemes such as BPSK, FSK, MSK, OQPSK, UQPSK and for DVB S2X applications. The modem IPs are available as proprietorial IP products in the form of HDL codes or binary netlists, which can be integrated into modem blocks of other modem vendors.
The IP cores can be incorporated into various terminals, indoor and outdoor units and modems on the ground. IPs available for sale or custom IPs can be designed based upon your specifications and requirements.
Apart from the DVB standards of satellite communiations, my IP core design work has also been spreading to a wider ares of industry standards, among them also including the following:
RDIF for IoT (Internet of Things)
Other protocols over IoT:
Bluetooth / Bluetooth Low Energy/ Bluetooth LE
NFC (Near Field Communication)
Rest of the Communications Protocols:
DATA-OVER-CABLE SERVICE INTERFACE SPECIFICATION (DOCSIS)
INTERNET PROTOCOL OVER SATELLITE (IPOS)
Design of Other Types of IP Cores
And finally, I also can design other types of IP Cores for you as an outsourcer or as a subcontractor, undertaking part of your entire design project, minimizing your cost and time to market and maximizing your productivity and profit. The range of design is not restricted, and therefoe encompass all major, mainstream chip technologies such as AI, ML, FPGA and others. I will offer you competitive prices while maintaining the quality at the frontiere.
Thank you for your time reading this letter and look forward to hearing from you soon.
