Hamilton Carter is the author of Metric Driven Verification, and has been awarded 14 patents in semiconductor design verification. His body of work in this field has been cited over 200 times. Of late, Mr. Carter has worked as a senior editor at Chip Design Magazine covering the verification and IP design spaces while pursuing his PhD in Physics at Texas A&M University. In the field of physics, Hamilton has published articles on superconductor and curved spacetime research. At the same time, he has kept his hand in the verification game through independent consulting in parallel with his degree work. Prior to returning to his first love, physics, Hamilton worked in the EDA industry for over 15 years. Prior to his work as an independent consultant, he worked at Cadence Design and before that Verisity. While at Cadence, he authored several articles on metric driven verification. In his guise as an EDA engineer and consultant, Hamilton has worked with companies such as Intel, Texas Instruments, Ericson, Sony, STMicroelectronics, IBM, AMD, Cirrus Logic, ARM, and many others. Hamilton earned an MSEE from Texas A&M University and a Bachelor’s in Engineering Physics from The Ohio State University.
In his spare time he helped to establish the first transmitting radio station from the site of Tesla’s last lab, Wardenclyffe, in Shoreham, NY since the lab was closed in the early 1900s. The amateur radio station, W3T, helped create awareness for the efforts to save Wardenclyffe.
