SAR622 stands for Segmentation Assembly and Reassembly SAR at a speed of 622 mbps. This is a PCI based memory mapped device, which takes ATM cells and assemble them in to packets and reassemble packets in to ATM cells. The idea is to validate the functionality of the SAR622.

My role was focused to develop the driver for SAR622, which basically does two main functions:

  1. Handle the device specific part Interrupt, initialization etc.
  2. To give access to the higher layer software test engine etc. to validate the functionality at a higher layer and make it more general in nature.

As far as device driver is concern this PCI card contains more than one device in the card SAR,TC and PCI to LOCAL BRIDGE , so there are three ISR s Interrupt Service Routine and DPC s Deferred Procedure Call to handle the interrupts for each three devices. This driver handles issues like sharing of ISR s for multiple card and multiple processors using spin lock .

Responsibility : Design, Implementation, Debugging and Testing of the driver.

My traditional role as principal architect for both the digital design and firmware on past projects, has fostered a good appreciation for recognizing/identifying the potential hardware/firmware tradeoffs in an architecture being considered, resulting in a more-coherent design and a shorter product development cycle.

I work equally well independently, or as a member of a team and very much enjoy being exposed to new knowledge opportunities and sharing my experience/knowledge with others.


    Applications programming in C and BASIC, real-time Assembler-level firmware coding for embedded control applications, and the generation of microcode in custom bit-slice architectures.

    Digital design with an emphasis on built-in diagnostics, and maintenance considerations unit test, and system integration experience. Specialized in microcontroller-based designs whose applications have included embedded control for automated test equipment ATE , communications controllers, diagnostic equipment, and fault insertion/simulation platforms for automated regression testing.

    Experience with various synchronous/asynchronous communications interfaces and protocols, and a familiarity with the use of the associated test and design verification equipment protocol analyzers, T1 test sets, etc.

    Familiar with UNIX and DOS Operating Systems/utilities and experienced with development tools including In-Circuit Emulators, Schematic Capture and Simulation Systems Intel ICE-5100, MetaLink Ice Master, ORCAD, SCHEMA, Altera MAX+PLUS, AT&T Schema .

My team finished releases on or ahead of time with minimal expenditures; this allowed more time for the . Designed look and feel for web page user interface that was so well received it was incorporated into other Java based NMS products for Spike. Led the NMS team on configuration management and defect tracking. Participated in QA at all levels for this product allowing the QA department more time to focus on other products that need more attention than the relatively defect free radio proxy agent. Spike s customers and ultimately Spike management was very pleased with the level of support and noted lack of defects in my product.
