He was later named a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, and upon Sun’s acquisition by Oracle in 2010, became Oracle’s very first Hardware Architect. At Sun and Oracle he worked on capacitive and optically coupled communication systems, 3D-stacked memories, and big-data analytics; and was awarded Sun’s Chairman’s Award for Innovation.
He has over 60 issued U.S. patents and has published over 100 technical papers on circuits and systems. He has served as committee member and conference chair for many technical symposia, and has guest edited issues of the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits and the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics.
