Background information

I am currently in the final year of my MEng Electronic Engineering course. My 3rd Year Project was to design and fabricate a chip that converts 3 binary inputs into a decimal number on a 7-segment display. This involved designing the associated logic using a number of logic gates and laying the circuit out on Silicon. I designed 4 mask sets: diffusion, gate oxide, contact holes and metal using AutoCAD. I then worked in the UMIST clean room to fabricate the chips using various techniques such as photolithography. My hobbies include music, football and playing the drums.
