My objective is to help customers solve their technical challenges quickly and efficiently. I have over 12 years of experience working and consulting for tech companies in the Silicon Valley. Every technical challenge that I had overcome gave me the assurance that with the right frame of mind anything can be accomplished. I strive to build the ultimate customer experience with the utmost attention to detail and quality in my products. My passion is engineering unique products specially tailored to meet my customers’ needs. Not only is this my career but it is also my hobby!
Circuit design using complex microcontrollers and DSPs, CPLDs, FPGAs, high-speed SoCs, analog circuits, signal acquisition, analog filters, RF engineering, Bluetooth and WiFi hardware, power electronics, electromechanical systems, motor control, power supplies (linear and switching), interfacing over SPI, I2C, USB, Ethernet, Verilog code (simulation and implementation on programmable logic devices), low power battery operated electronics, battery management, industrial automation, schematic capture and PCB layout (RF PCB layout) – fluent in Altium Designer. RF antenna design and tuning experience. I designed more than 60 electronics/PCBs (most being sold today. Example: RN171 RF module). I am skilled at building prototypes, production design, production tester design, testing, validation, debugging and I have lab experience. I also have experience 3D modeling, designing enclosures and various mechanical parts using Autodesk Fusion 360.
