1. Introduction

Robert “Bob” Zeidman (born January 18, 1960) is an American electrical engineer, educator and inventor who has made contributions in Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) design, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) design, embedded systems development, software synthesis, software analysis and software forensics. Best known as the inventor of software forensics,[1][2] Zeidman’s pioneering research and development of software-forensics tools was instrumental in making detection of software source-code correlation practical and accurate, and in turning previously subjective information into empirical evidence. He has personally consulted on more than 160 court cases involving billions of dollars in disputed intellectual property, the software forensics tools he developed have been used in litigation worldwide, and his book, "The Software IP Detective's Handbook," is considered the standard textbook for software forensics.[3][4]

Zeidman is also well known for his work developing embedded systems. Since 1987, Zeidman has designed ASICs, FPGAs, and PC boards for RISC-based parallel processor systems, vector supercomputers, laser printers, hardware emulators, network switches and routers, and various real-time systems. His clients have included Apple Computer, Cadence Design Systems, Cisco Systems, Intel, Mentor Graphics, Ricoh Systems, and Texas Instruments.[5]

Zeidman received a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, and bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering and physics from Cornell University. He holds 22 granted patents and four pending patents.[6][7]

Zeidman founded many companies, seven of which are still operating under his leadership: Z Enterprises (novelty items from Silicon Valley; May 1986 – present);[8] Zeidman Consulting (hardware and software design services; October 1987 – present);[9] eVault Remote Backup Service (January 1992 – April 1999); The Chalkboard Network (online business and engineering courses; January 1999 – December 2002); Zeidman Technologies (software tools for embedded software development; December 2002 – present);[10] Software Analysis and Forensic Engineering Corporation (software tools for intellectual property litigation; September 2007 – present);[11] SamAnna Designs (fashion accessories; January 2011 – present);[12] Swiss Creek Publications (independent publisher; June 2012 – present);[13] Firtiva (online videos and films; December 2013 – present).[14]

Zeidman has written many technical papers on hardware and software design methods, and has taught courses on Verilog, ASIC, and FPGA design at engineering conferences throughout the world. He is the author of five engineering books: “Verilog Designer's Library,”[15] “Introduction to Verilog,”[16] “Designing with FPGAs and CPLDs,”[17] “The Software IP Detective's Handbook,”[18] and “Just Enough Electronics to Impress Your Friends and Colleagues.”[19] He is the co-author of two engineering books: “Circuit Design: Know it All (Newnes Know it All)”[20] and “FPGAs: World Class Designs.”[21] He is also the author of three novels: “The Amazing Adventure of Edward and Dr. Sprechtmachen”,[22] “Horror Flick,”[23] and “Good Intentions.”[24]

Zeidman is a senior member of the IEEE and was the recipient of the 1994 Wyle/EE Times American by Design Award, the 2003 Jolt Reader's Choice Award, the 2010 and the 2015 Outstanding Engineer Award from the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section[25] and from the Region 6 Central Area[26] for his pioneering contributions to the field of software forensics. Zeidman has also won awards for writing and for the production and direction of short films.[27]

2. Biography

Zeidman was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He earned bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering and physics from Cornell University in 1981 and a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1982. From 1983 to 1988 Zeidman held engineering positions designing computer chips at four companies: Signetics (April 1983 – December 1984), ROLM Corporation (January – August 1985), American Supercomputers (September – December 1985), and Telestream (January 1986 – March 1988).[28] In May 1986 Zeidman founded the company Z Enterprises, which produces novelty items from Silicon Valley such as posters, mugs, napkins and T-shirts. The company still operates today under Zeidman’s ownership.[29]

In October 1987 Zeidman founded the company Zeidman Consulting, which provides hardware and software design services, engineering support and expert witnesses for high-tech litigation. The company still operates today with Zeidman as president.[30] Zeidman’s work at Zeidman Consulting includes creating patented Molasses® virtualization software that enables a slow speed hardware emulator or prototype to be attached to a high-speed network in order to emulate network hardware in a live system. Zeidman also consulted on more than 160 court cases involving billions of dollars in disputed intellectual property, such as Brocade v. A10 Networks, for which he testified at trial, ConnectU v. Facebook (made famous in the Academy Award-winning movie, “The Social Network”), and Texas Instruments v. Samsung Electronics, which resulted in an award to his client of over $1 billion.[31] At Zeidman Consulting, Zeidman also developed the software tools, SynthOS® [32] and CodeSuite®,[33] which became the flagship products for his two software companies, Zeidman Technologies (SynthOS) and Software Analysis and Forensic Engineering Corporation (CodeSuite).

In 1991 Zeidman wrote his first novel, “The Amazing Adventure of Edward and Dr. Sprechtmachen.”[34]
