Dayanand Reddy is a MMS co-founder and holds a B.Engg. Degree from the Delhi Institue of Technology, India and a M.S. Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Iowa. Reddy started his career in Microprocessor design at Intel Corporation in 1996. Prior to co-founding the company, he was a PLL design engineer at LSI Logic Corporation where he was responsible for PLL Design, modeling and support. He also worked on 3.125GB/s Optical Receivers at Mathstar Inc. Reddy then co-founded Fmax Technologies, Inc. in 2002 and later co-founded Mixed Mode Solutions, Inc. where has has been since 2004. During his endeavors at Fmax and MMS he has worked on a variety of design projects including Standard and Specialty IO, PLLs, High-Speed Memory Design, High Speed Ser-Des as well as RTL coding for Storage Area PHY layers and Verilog behavioral modeling of complex Analog and Mixed-Signal subsystems.
Curt Schnarr is a MMS co-founder and holds a BSEE degree from the University of Minnesota. He started his career designing radiation hardened memory on SOI processes at Honeywell in 1996, and later was a senior memory designer for LSI Logic. Prior to co-founding MMS, he was a high speed SERDES and mixed signal designer for Micron Technology, where he was one of the principal architects for a DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3, and GDDR4 on-chip data eye measurement system. Curt has patents for CML duty cycle and phase placement measurement for use in systems with multi-phase clocks. Since joining MMS, Curt has worked on PLL design, high speed memory design and methodology, memory compilers, software to estimate timing, power and area for memories, Verilog models and testbenches for CAM memories, as well as various circuit blocks for PLL development and for an LTO5 tape drive system.
