Kenneth S. Kundert

 Kenneth S. Kundert is an engineer that is notable for his work in the area of Electronic Design Automation (EDA). He studied electrical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley under professors Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli and Robert Meyer and received his doctorate in 1989. During this time he created the Spectre circuit simulator. He was elevated to the status of IEEE Fellow in 2007 for contributions to simulation and modeling of analog, RF, and mixed-signal circuits.[1]

Kundert co-founded Designer’s Guide Consulting[2] and created the Designer’s Guide Community. From 1989 to 2005 he was a Fellow at Cadence Design Systems during which time he was the principal architect of the Spectre circuit simulation family. As such, he has led the development of Spectre, SpectreHDL, and SpectreRF.[3] He was also the primary developer of Verilog-A[4] and made substantial contributions to both the Verilog-AMS[5]and VHDL-AMS languages. He has written three books on circuit simulation: The Designer’s Guide to Verilog-AMS,[6] The Designer’s Guide to SPICE and Spectre,[7] and Steady-State Methods for Simulating Analog and Microwave Circuits.[8]

Since 2005 Kundert, along with Henry Chang, has worked to develop the field of analog verification.[9]
