Robert Peruzzi is a licensed Professional Electrical Engineer and a Board Certified Diplomate Forensic Engineer, with a subspecialty in integrated circuits and electrical modules used for signal-processing in communication and electro-mechanical control systems.


Robert O. Peruzzi, PhD, PE, DFE provides forensic investigation and expert witness testimony in legal matters involving:

intellectual property (IP)
failure analysis and
product liability

as well as in disputes over requirements, specifications, design, testing, reliability, and failure, including those resulting in personal injury or death.

Areas of Expertise

Additional Expertise:

Design Engineering, Sound Engineering, Wireless Technology, SERDES, Emergency Preemption Systems, Mixed-Signal, Analog, Radio Frequency (RF), Signal-Processing, Analog-to-Digital (A/D), Digital-to-Analog (D/A), Control Systems, Semiconductor, System on Chip.


Dr. Peruzzi's subspecialty is with integrated circuits (silicon chips) used for signal-processing:

• 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)
