Current project: Hybrid Memory Cube Controller Micron Technology / Arira Platforms, San Jose, CA (2012 to Present)

Services provided for the Hybrid Memory Cube controller: Developed a C# application to measure performance metrics of memory test-patterns running in the HMC controller. The application uses threading to download histogram data from four Altera Stratix VFPGAs connected to the HMC SerDes and report bandwidth, latency and power. Developed custom NIOS code in the FPGAs to support data transfer over Ethernet. The Dashboard tool authenticates users and meters the publisher’s applications.
