Arista Networks
Board level hardware design of high speed network switches, from design spec and
schematic capture to layout guidance and bringup
Designs are very complex –featuring multi-gigabit data traces (10Gbps+), high power
consumption and dissipation (150W+), and constrained layout space
Designed switch controller test card from start to finish, from Spec definition to
Schematic design to bringup:
Adapted Verilog code for controller test card, programming on-board FPGA and CPLD
using Xilinx ISE and Altera Quartus tools
Investigated and Evaluated multi-phase CPU Core power supplies for performance under
high current transient loads
Lead manager for field failure analysis (FA) of new Lightning based accessories for
iPhones, iPods and iPads, as well as new EarPod earphones
Interpreted and reported FA results in the most extensive reporting of accessory product
releases to date
Initiated and managed a unique unit tracking system, and developed process flow for
sustaining FA to be conducted by accessory manufacturers
Designed circuit/schematic and component selection of automotive grade battery
