Work Experience

Apple

May, 2016 -  May, 2017

Phone System Integration Intern

Products: iPhone X, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7

  • Validated iPhone X/7/7 Plus prototype for nearly all sub-systems using oscilloscopes, multimeter etc.
  • Designed schematic for several test PCBs, with over a hundred boards fabricated and distributed to cross- functional teams
  • Wrote scripts to automate device behavior and testing equipment to improve validation efficiency
  • Designed a backend program for an internal website focusing on data mining to analyze device performance at factory, reducing the processing time from several hours to several seconds. It is the first webtool implemented and deployed by interns in the group.
  • Analyzed peak power and battery failure to mitigate unexpected power off (UPO) problem
  • Managed, simulated and reviewed Direct Current Resistance (DCR) for iPhone system from vendors
  • Hardware failure analysis on prototypes
  • Presented engineering process/outcomes to cross-functional teams for review
  • Worked with cross-functional team actively for several other projects

 

 

Selected Research Experience

 

 

  • Designed the architecture of Boltzmann Machine on FPGA to approximate the solution of combinatorial optimization problems using simulated annealing on Intel DE1-SoC FPGA development boards
  • Enabled Ethernet connection between multiple FPGAs to facilitate data transfer and expand the number of fully-connected neurons from 256 to 1024
  • Designed front-end GUI to visualize temperature and energy change
