Embedded Design Engineer, AeroStream Communications, Golden, CO

November 2008 - May 2010

  • Successfully completed 4 projects in a fast paste, multitask, small company environment
  • Achieved product idea to working prototype in 9 months
  • Created architecture for 4 channel SDR(Software Defined Radio system) spread out on up to 8 boards (for the noise reducing reasons) achieving most ergonomic design in the tightest mechanical constrains
  • Designed multichannel RF boards (mostly 6-layer) from scratch. Identifying gain and loss requirements, implementing very efficient design geared towards minimizing noise influence on the analog components
  • Designed highly complex, self-sufficient DSP boards (2x4 inch 10-layer DSP daughter card with 256-pin 400K Gate 1mm-pitch FPGA, 289-pin 0.5mm-pitch DSP, SDRAM, FLASH, NAND and USB unit)
  • Investigated numerous RF and DSP components in order to balance best performance and price
  • Identified ways to dramatically reduce cost and simplify design while maintaining best performance
  • Oversaw board fabrication and assembly processes insuring highest quality standards

Electrical Engineer, Colorado Electronic Product Design, Boulder, CO

October 2006 - October 2008

  • Successfully conducted advanced research and design in a wide variety of different fields and applications
  • Solely designed and debugged code for the Digital Reading Service Receiver project, code proved to be extremely reliable in the field by successful implementation on thousands of units
  • Significant VHDL code contribution to the Digital Radio Kit Project including code writing, debugging and testing. Final code was implemented on both Xilinx and Altera FPGAs
  • Detailed testing of the Land Seismic Acquisition System. Numerous ways to improve system efficiency and productivity were discovered and successfully implemented
  • Conquered detailed electronic assembly using soldering irons, hot air and IR machines, successfully applied and developed my skills to perfection while creating prototypes, testing and modifying existing circuits
  • As a result of displaying hard work accompanied by impressive outcomes and dedication to the company, I quickly progressed from the part-time Intern to the full-time Engineer position
