About Michael F. Klein

Dr. Klein provides comprehensive physical design and consulting services for advanced, high-performance custom, semi-custom, and COT CMOS VLSI designs. His focus is on project planning, circuit and physical design and methodologies, and chip integration.
With electrical engineering degrees from Caltech and UC Berkeley and over 15 years of technical and managerial experience in physical design at both large and small Silicon Valley chip companies, Dr. Klein's background is uniquely suited to deliver high-value design and consulting services in the following areas:
Dr. Klein has been a key contributor to numerous significant VLSI products since the late 1980s, including:
In 1994, Dr. Klein joined Xenon Microsystems, later named Chromatic Research, Inc., as Director of VLSI and Xenon's 7th employee, where he built and managed the circuit and physical design teams for the Mpact-1 and Mpact-2 media processor families. His responsibilities spanned the complete concept-to-production cycle for these products. Mpact-2 achieved production volume of over 1 million units, one of the earliest and most successful Rambus-based products prior to 2000. Chromatic Research was acquired in 1998 by ATI Technologies.
Dr. Klein joined Chip2Chip, Inc., later named Velio Communications, Inc. , as Director of VLSI in 2000. While at Velio, he managed the circuit and physical design teams that taped out initial silicon for two product lines ( VC1000 and VC2000 families) in 0.18 micron CMOS incorporating Velio's ultra-high speed serial link technology. A 15-million transistor grooming switch was successfully taped out in under 6 months from initial architectural closure, and first silicon was customer sampled.
Since mid-2001, Dr. Klein has consulted on high-performance VLSI issues as well as performing technical due diligence and analysis for venture capital.

'Bereits im Vorfeld der Integration von Perforce in unsere Delta-Entwicklungsumgebung wie auch während der Integration war von Herrn Cowham eine hervorragende Unterstützung gegeben. Das Perforce-Training entsprach derselben Qualität.'
