Senior Certified Professional Consultant

Very High Speed Digital Circuit Design & Signal Integrity
Electronic Engineering Design and Test. 20+ years in ATE (Automated Test Equipment), Test & Measurement, E-BEAM Control, Networks, & Biotech. Design of Control Systems, Pin Electronics, and robust High Speed Clock & Data Distribution Systems which work right the first time.

Architectures Created. Design Rules taught. Schematics Captured. PCB Layouts directed. Timing Analysis done. Power integrity reviewed. Signal Integrity reviewed. SPICE Modelling done. Debug before build via Simulation. System Integrations planned.


Prototypes designed, simulated, built, and tested.
PAST PROJECTS INCLUDE--
Design of the Pin Electronics, plus Master Clock Board and Environmental Monitoring Unit for the upgrade of production ATE Testers, putting the Pin Electronics into the Test Head for better performance while testing FPGAs. Design of the Electron Beam Blanker-Control System for Litho Mask Making equipment down to 1/4 nanosecond pulse, for 2 GHz Quality Control delivered to the E-BEAM blanker plates. Design of the Stimulus & Response electronics of a light-based process for controlling a Biotech chemical reaction.
