Other Accomplishments

  • Dr. Shiva has consulted with industry and government organizations in the areas of software engineering, computer architecture, artificial intelligence, and expert systems. 
  • He has received Research Funding from NSF, NASA, U.S. Department of Defense, and ONR.
  • Conducted research in the area of Computer Aided Design (CAD) of digital filters under an NSF grant. The CAD tools developed as a result of this activity, allow the implementation of a high order digital filter as either a cascade or a parallel interconnection of second order modules (i.e. DSP structures). 
  • Initiated research on HDLs and automatic synthesis under a NASA grant. This research resulted in the first comprehensive comparison of about 45 HDLs then proposed and an HDL selection methodology. 
  • Principal Investigator: “Evaluation of Digital System Design Languages,” NASA Grant NSG-8057, October 1977 – September 1978. Conducted a survey and comparison of HDLs to select an appropriate language to be interfaced to NASA’s Computer Aided Design and Test (CADAT) system.
