Mr. Palnitkar is a recognized authority on Verilog HDL, modeling, verification, logic synthesis, and EDA-based methodologies in digital design. He has worked extensively with design and verification on various successful microprocessor, ASIC, and system projects. He was the lead developer of the Verilog framework for the shared memory, cache coherent, multiprocessor architecture, popularly known as the UltraSPARCTM Port Architecture, defined for Sun's next generation UltraSPARC-based desktop systems. Besides the UltraSPARC CPU, he has worked on a number of diverse design and verification projects at leading companies including Cisco, Philips, Mitsubishi, Motorola, National, Advanced Micro Devices, and Standard Microsystems. Mr. Palnitkar was also a leading member of the group that first experimented with cyclebased simulation technology on joint projects with simulator companies. He has extensive experience with a variety of EDA tools such as Verilog-NC, Synopsys VCS, Specman, Vera, System Verilog, Synopsys, SystemC, Verplex, and Design Data Management Systems. Mr. Palnitkar is the author of three US patents, one for a novel method to analyze finite state machines, a second for work on cycle-based simulation technology and a third(pending approval) for a unique e-commerce tool. He has also published several technical papers. In his spare time, Mr. Palnitkar likes to play cricket, read books, and travel the world.
