Confidential, Canton, MI
Senior Electrical Engineer
- Responsible for the design, development and support of electronic modules used in automotive applications for all of the major automotive OEM’s
- Lead design engineer responsible for the design of a Surround View ECU capable of interfacing with four Confidential or Confidential based camera systems as well as merging an ultra sonic sensor system.
- This design utilizes expertise in Signal Integrity; high speed layout techniques; switch mode power; integration of Confidential and micro - controller technology.
- Lead engineer in the design and successful launch of a monocular based Lane Departure warning system
- Lead engineer for the design and development of a four loop and eight loop airbag system developed for three Chinese OEMS.
- Responsible for the design of a motorized seatbelt safety system that also contains driver comfort features that are unique to the industry: This design effort has recently been awarded business by a large Confidential .
- Responsible for the start-up development of the electronics group at Confidential: This required the staffing and training of three hardware engineers and one software engineer. It also required the development of the procedures necessary to design, validate and launch electronics projects.
- Successfully supervised the transfer of a PWM fan motor controller design from Confidential 's European affiliate to the North American market:
- This design was used by a Siemens VDO in a fan./shroud assembly and was supplied through them to both Confidential and Confidential .
- This transfer required assimilation of the design and the validation of the product in North America. In order to achieve this required the training and supervision of three engineers essentially from scratch. It also required development of validation procedures and the supervision of both the DV and PV phases of this product.
- It also required extensive liaison and support of the Confidential German design group as well as liaison with the Mexican manufacturing facility
- Supervised the design and development of an original and innovative lighting control module for Confidential
- This design was an original concept that the customer commissioned Confidential to devise in order to increase the feature content of an existing vehicle.
- The design included two circuit solutions that have patents pending.
