of tests after rework of electronic touch sensing controller boards quantifying the improvements of

firmware and other upgrades applied

Xerox Corporation, Webster, NY Tech Specialist Project Manager 9/1984-4/2010

Conducted test and characterization development of CCD, prototype CMOS linear imager sensors in wafers,

and packaged devices under controlled illumination and reliability stress. Delivered performance tabulated

metrics, characterized yield, sorted data to engineering specifications and published reports..

Design/Development Engineer-Test Lab 2000-2010

• Reduced fully automated bare silicon wafer test time, with nearly a thousand devices, from over a day to

about two hours.

• Developed and engineered processes and procedures to carry out highly non-standard diced bare wafer

on film probing with automated step and repeat resulting in near 100% completion avoiding undesired

probing stoppage.

• Formulated modular Labview code to enhance code with remote command and control, integration and

debugging significantly easier to maintain and reduce undesirable downtime of capability by at least


• Significantly improved test throughput of devices by over 90% by revamping old test program into

Labview code and with new, cost effective hardware, reducing per device test to only 8 seconds from

2.25 minutes.

• Designed and developed in 2 weeks a new set up with hardware and Labview code with motion control

to acquire GiGE vision camera images for output imager performance characterization for potential

replacement of prior technologies.

• Implemented a high speed Camera Link image acquisition test rig to acquire images from a linear

imagers for the production floor that improved customer satisfaction to increase product sales.

• Delivered a complete image acquisition GUI test package that significantly speed up fully automated

production floor device pass/fail qualification of linear imager boards.

• Restructured MTF tests of CCD imagers reducing time from 2-3 days to about 5-6 hours.

• Received cash and dinner awards for meeting customer deliverables and project objectives.

Community Service 1999-2010

• Editor and Publisher of monthly newsletter for a non-profit organization.

• Weekend school administration, computer & networking technical support, DIY repairs, forms design.
