Prior to Google, Alan was the Director of Digital/Compaq/HP’s Western Research Laboratory. During his 15 years at WRL, he worked on a variety of chip design and architecture projects, including the MicroTitan Floating Point unit, BIPS, the hottest and fastest Microprocessor of it’s day (1990, 330MHz, 115 Watts). Alan also worked with Amitabh Srivastava on ATOM, a binary code instrumentation system that forms the basis for a wide variety of program analysis and computer architecture analysis tools. These tools heavily influenced the design of the EV5, EV6, and EV7 chip designs. Alan was promoted to Director of the Western Research Laboratory in 1999. WRL had active projects in pocket computing, chip multi-processors, power and energy management, internet performance, and frequency and voltage scaling. Alan is an author of 9 publications, and 10 patents. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Central Florida.
