Expert WitnessForensic ExpertLitigation SupportSpeaker
Robert Peruzzi is a Licensed Professional Electrical Engineer and a Board Certified Diplomate Forensic 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.


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.

Litigation Support Services

Individual tutoring or class on electronic systems, circuits and systems for non-engineers.

Areas of Expertise

Additional Expertise:

SERDES; Control Systems; Product Requirements and Specifications; Signal Processing Electronics Systems.


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)


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
