Test Engineer Resume

SUMMARY:

I am interested in exploring the possibility of employment with your Company as a Test Engineer. I have worked in the electronics industry for over twenty years on products ranging from vibration analysis equipment, wired and wireless LANs, to state of art HDTV MPEG2/AVC Encoders and Decoders for the broadcast industry, as well as RF Satellite and Microwave communications. Can do testing for EMC work be it FCC, ETSI, CE and UL safety requirements. Good mechanical aptitude. I am knowledgeable in all facets of manufacturing, testing and production of electronics products. I have a broad range of technical expertise coupled with good communication skills. I am hoping you have an opening for someone with my experience.

WORK HISTORY:

Test Engineer

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Working on reducing test times on current products.
  • The products range is mostly RF filters, switches and multiplexers with frequency ranges from about 1GHz up to well over 20GHz.
  • The bigger items are for systems that go into the F35 or AMDR radar.
  • Create million dollar STEs (Specialized Test Equipment) and setup test equipment benches for each product.
  • Write the associated documentation either testing instructions, BOMs or data processing reports.
  • Use LabWindows/CVI and LabVIEW for writing ATE software. A good mix of hardware and software.
  • Cobham is a defense subcontractor so the products are geared for military/defense use.

Production Test Engineer

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Working with oceanographic equipment.
  • Low power electronics used in ocean deployable floats.
  • The floats are a mixture of electronics and complex mechanical systems, valves, pumps and pressure sensors.
  • Uses GPS and Iridium modems.
  • Being a small startup company this requires me to provide for many different roles.
  • I write the test software used for testing the electronics as well as the mechanical systems.
  • I use LabWindows/CVI as the software development platform.
  • I also write required documentation and handle customer returns.
  • I repaired any and all of the failed electronics - in house or customer. A little of everything.

Production Test Engineer

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Worked with Microwave products in the 2 - 6GHz frequency range.
  • Analog FSK and digital COFDM Transmitters and Receivers used for transmitting video and audio from mobile vehicles for law enforcement, DOD, helicopters, and broadcasters.
  • Used LabVIEW for all of the software programs.
  • Created test systems and their procedures.
  • Modified current systems for automated testing to reduce test times and improve repeatability.
  • Provided technical support for the technicians and an interface between production and engineering.

Test Engineer

Confidential, San Diego

Responsibilities:

  • Sole Test Engineer for the company for over five years.
  • Working with satellite communications and video broadcast products.
  • The products were based around old and new technology, from DIP to BGA's, analog, digital and RF circuitry, a mixture of video and RF technology.
  • I did breadboarding and building of test fixtures, related hardware and all ATE software.
  • There were eight test stations for all of the Confidential products at the time of my departure, all were of my creation and design.
  • Was responsible for the calibration of all Confidential test equipment both in house and at the contract manufacturers.
  • Created and maintained ATE software for production testing both in house and at different contract manufacturers.
  • I also tested various hardware and software changes for new and older products for both standalone and multi-channel systems.
  • I made drawing and layout changes for both schematics and PCBs with PCAD and test procedures for all of the products.
  • I also handled all testing for EMC work be it FCC, ETSI, CE and UL safety requirements.
  • I can work with most any computer system and have working knowledge of software and operating systems such as DOS, Windows(NT,XP,7) and the Office suites Access, Excel, Visio and Word. All of the Confidential ATE's ran my test software which was created with Confidential LabWindows/CVI, an ANSI C development suite, with some legacy ATE’s running Visual Basic applications.
  • The ATE's are stand alone rack systems using RS232, and GPIB communications with database connectivity (SQL) and data acquisition capabilities.
  • I can program in LabView, though I used LabWindows since previous Test Engineers were coding with it. I was also part of the company's Manufacturing Design Assurance (MDA) group.
  • Which was responsible for the testing of new firmware, software, hardware, integration and validation.

Engineering Technician

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • I was working with wireless networks or LANs.
  • Using the 2.4GHz ISM band for unlicensed radios and spread spectrum technology.
  • The products consisted of wireless bridges and routers.
  • They used a mixture of digital, analog and RF circuitry.
  • Here I did breadboarding and building of test fixtures and routing test PCBs.
  • I did much of the indoor and outdoor field testing of the products.
  • Again I handled all of the EMC requirements for theses products, FCC, ETSI, CE and UL safety requirements.

Sr. Electronics Technician
