Robert Peruzzi is a Licensed Professional Electrical Engineer. He is a technical consultant in the areas of analog, RF and digital electronics, including integrated circuits (IC) and systems on chip (SOC). His electronics expert witness practice is in the areas of forensic investigation, product requirements and specifications and patents.

Services

Dr. Peruzzi provides forensic investigation and litigation support, including expert witness testimony, regarding intellectual property (IP) /patent infringement involving Mixed Signal Electronics / Electro-mechanical Systems.

Areas of Expertise

Additional Expertise:

Product Requirements and Specifications

Profile

His subspecialty within this broad category is with integrated circuits (silicon chips) used for signal-processing, which include:

Detect signals from a sensor (e.g. antenna, microphone, pixel, thermocouple and so forth)
Amplify, filter, then convert the signal to the digital domain
Perform further processing in the digital domain
Convert the result back to the analog domain for further processing, and/or
Deliver the final output to an actuator (e.g. antenna, speaker, LED, heater control-switch etc.).
Examples of these systems are
Telephones, mobile phones and cell phones
Data recording and retrieving systems for magnetic media such as disk drives or magnetic tape
Radio transmitters/receivers and their building blocks such as low noise amplifiers, filters, automatic gain control and frequency mixers (down-converters, up-converters)
Audio amplifiers
Audio recording/reproduction systems
Heat, ventilation and air conditioning controllers
Data transmitting/receiving systems such as serializer/de-serializers (SERDES)

Specialties:

1. Behavioral modeling of analog/mixed-signal circuits using Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS or MATLAB/Simulink, emphasizing multiple model views targeted toward
* Specific verification requirements
* High-speed verification using real-value modeling techniques
* System-level design exploration
* Executable design specs

2. Synthesizable block diagrams using MATLAB/Simulink/HDL-Coder
