Electrical Engineering Consultant for Optiscan Biomedical in Hayward, CA.
This project was a complex medical instrument that required a combination of skills that we are known for: analog circuitry, FPGA, microprocessors, and firmware. The instrument is used for non-invasive liquid biopsies and requires the accurate measurement of a very low current in a sample of blood.
Mapping unit outfitted with a wide range of sensors including cameras (Daylight and IR), Time of Flight (depth) cameras, GNSS with RTK, LIDAR, and inertial measurement units to collect data that is useful for developing software and algorithms for an autonomous vehicle.
Voler Systems designed the electronics in the Rokid glasses which include an integrated wearable computer. The glasses include facial recognition, voice recognition, and hand gesture recognition. Their open platform runs Android and therefore can be easily tailored to many enterprise applications.
Designed electronics for an automotive lockbox with Bluetooth communication to a Smartphone, Cellular communication, and GPS for position location and tracking.
Designed the electronics and firmware for a motorized surfboard. Design consisted of an on-board Nordic CPU to communicate with a Battery Management System, and a 3-phase Motor controller module. Hand held device also contains a Nordic CPU with E-ink display.
Wearable fitness devices are influencing today’s medical devices that target clinical and everyday applications. Some of the innovation involves new modalities of measurement: for example an iPhone that analyzes your eyeball to determine blood pressure. But fundamentally the challenge has shifted from determining how to make accurate and precise measurements to how to enable a […]
