Nov 2007 onwards
Founder of the Company “Untamed Spectrum” Finland
• Started the company Untamed Spectrum , registered in Finland
Registration number: (Y-tunnus: 2151613-7). This company provides DSP
SW solutions for the wireless industry.
• Continuing as Phd student at Helsinki University of Technology. At present working on a basic OFDM simulation setup in Matlab comprising of a transmitter , channel and receiver.
• Analysed and developed some software strategies to handle the uncertainty curves in the Forex market ina process of developing an expert system.
• Developing Neural Network algorithms(FeedForward) using Matlab for Time Series Prediction.
• Developed a real time forex trading system exactly in the lines of a real time embedded system with system timers . The system was a single process .
• Developed some testing tools using Matlab and connecting to the clients using:
- Matlab Engine
- Windows Pipes and Mex file .
- Windows Shared Memory and Mex Files
- UDP and Mex files .

Conducted training workshops on advanced mobile communication for the industries
and universities in India. (Dec 2012 – March 2013)
Topics included were : (All with Matlab/Simulink examples and simulations)
- Comparison of different modulation/demodulation schemes in presence of AWGN and Fading channels by plotting various BER curves for several multipaths. Highlighting how there is a floor in the BER curve for the Fading channels unlike Gaussian channel and why there is an exponential decay in AWGN channel where as almost linear decay in Fading. These are non trivial issues often not mentioned in textbooks.
- Effects of narrowband noise and how the distribution changes from Raleigh , to Rician to Gaussian with rise in signal power.
- Comparison of Maximal Ratio Combining and Equal Gain Combining.
- Demonstrating how OFDM is more robust to fading that basic CDMA.
- Talked about how cyclic prefixes and suffixes can help in synch issues of OFDM.

A free lance project for a client (April 2013)
Comparison of different modulation schemes (ASK and PSK ) for AWGN in simulink.

Nov 1998 – Aug 2006
Nokia Networks, Finland
DSP (Senior Specialist BaseBand)
• Responsible for implementing WCDMA RakeReceiver Uplink DPCCH
Algorithms (SIR , TFCI Decoding, Ber Combining, Limited Power Raise
Algorithm). In addition TFCI was simulated and performance analyzed
with some fault cases in the Matlab environment.
• Implemented DSP/RakeReceiver algorithms using C in the TI C62xx & TI
C64xx (Code Composer)environments.
• Responsible for optimising program and efficient execution within the
given number of clock cycles . TI compiler specific programming style ,
directives and intrinsics were used. Redundant calculations were
detected based on the given data and such calculations were avoided.
• Developed the Bit Error Rate (BER) Process, which was used to check the
number of raw bits were in error and if there were missing bits,
transmission gaps.
• Developed the Ber Tester Process, which is a separate process for
sending the raw bits mixed with noise
The tester also received back the error messages from the Ber Process.
The processes ran in the RTOS Environment.
• Ran test cases and did measurements for the rake receiver using the UE
equipment and the the channel model simulator with noise generator.
Plotted Eb/No curves for various channel models and compared with the

Arrival (DOA) estimation problem. Compared the results obtained by
classical, capon and music beam forming methods.
• Wrote a few DSP test sw for the OMAP processor 1710 for the feasibility
of testing from the DSP side for some multimedia applications using the
STI port during run time.It is possible to do remote debugging. Also
modified the scripts of Lauterbach and developed and environment for
dual mode testing for the OMAP (Arm & Dsp sections).
• Trained the subcontractors and others how to use the environments for their work
and detect faults.
• Developed some features to make the RTOS platform independent by improving the given abstraction layer.
• Some OFDMA(Wimax) related studies and feasibility issues are in progress.
