A Sr. Electrical and Electronic engineer specializing in hardware & firmware system design. He is an expert in circuit board design and skilled in complex electro-mechanical design. For the last few years, he’s been designing and building complex hardware for military autonomous drones that rely heavily on RF/Wireless, Routing and IoT features.
Complex mixed-signal circuit design, design review, and PCB Layout for embedded High Frequency (>10GHz) RF Printed Circuit Boards and Hybrid Integrated Circuits (HIC) for a space and power-constrained military product. Contributed individually and oversaw advanced PCB layout which included: controlled impedance routing, complex PCB layer stack-up, EMR shielding, EMI mitigation, and high-speed digital.
Architected autonomous drone hardware including system design, circuit and schematic design, PCBs, and cameras for a fully custom, US-manufactured drone to be used by US Dept of Homeland Security & Border Patrol. Custom or custom off-the-shelf design of Pixhawk Flight Controller, Power Distribution board, RF Transceiver & Video electronics, Motor Control and Machine Vision for autonomous drones to operate in GPS-denied areas with target recognition and obstacle avoidance.
Designed systems and hardware for engineers to verify performance requirements of helmet electronics and operator interface devices in the DoD TALOS Project (“Iron Man Suit”). Developed 900MHz IoT wireless transmitter/receiver for use in internal bovine health applications. Researched and started initial development of low-power embedded FPGA-based vision systems.
