In the year 2003, I and SSL team presented “A 210mW Graphics LSI implementing Full 3D Pipeline with 264Mtexels/s Texturing for Mobile Multimedia Applications” at ISSCC (International Solid-State Circuit Conference)
I designed the 5-stage RISC processor with 8KB Instruction and Data Cache for 3D geomery processing and founded the full-chip integration flow with automatic P&R with Apollo (now it is Astro).
