ELECTRICAL ENGINEER

Responsibilities:

  • Finished-out build of a very miniature, PIC microcontroller based portable data acquisition device.
  • With good mentoring; wrote embedded C code for this same device including a command parcer.

Confidential, Fremont, CA

ELECTRICAL ENGINEER

Responsibilities:

  • Hired to replace electrical engineers lost midway through the design of a new semicon tool.
  • Designed AC distribution sub-panel for a motion control servo platform and DC distribution cables for the tool.
  • Assisted determination of system UPS requirements and design of UPS interlock and control.
  • Worked a large number of full-time, necessarily short-term, contract positions between sessions of school.
  • Total 31 months as “EE”, 8 months as “Component Engineer”, 14 months as “Electronics Technician”.

Developer / Manufacturer

Responsibilities:

  • Initially performed support functions such as magnetic field mapping, data acquisition and analysis, analog and digital circuit prototyping, circuit test, and schematic capture in ORCAD.
  • Used oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, dynamic-signal analyzers, RLC meters, DVMs, etc. .
  • Later designed and built custom analog circuits for experiments in the lab and in the field, including data acquisition signal conditioners, low noise and drift integrators and amplifiers.
  • Soon became a key contributor in solving a number of critical system problems while working my day job as engineering support to manufacturing and to the field, for magnetics issues.
  • Designed a pre-distortion filter for a device that gave the system immunity from external magnetic field noise.
  • Designed and implemented simple changes to existing magnetic field homogeneity optimization software that allowed optimization over new shapes that I thought might improve marketability. This proved correct.
