Responsibilities include the development and the design of new electronic sensor products, development of drive circuits for solenoids and electromechanical valves from concept through product life cycle meeting all applicable codes and standards. Implement product improvements in cost, function, and quality. Responsible for the component selection of sensors, solenoids and mechanical valves was well as the overall layout.
Responsible for analog/digital design of electronic sensor circuits, special products and modification.
Responsible for OrCad schematic capture, Allegro PCB for board layout, setting up Spice models for simulations.
Determine design cost effectiveness and justification, meet quality and reliability standards set by the new product development teams. Design experiments and coordinate test set-ups. Develop designs in products as well as process improvements. Create drawings by revise engineering. Manage projects and coordinate with Product Marketing Managers, arrange meetings with suppliers, vendors and all applicable departments.
Electrical Engineer/Project Manager 01/2006 to 03/2012
Oak Ridge National Laboratory Spallation Neutron Source Oak Ridge, TN
Design and fabricate dc magnet power supplies, pulsed magnet power supplies, pulsed Klystron modulator systems, and AC
Power distribution systems. Specify and validate acceptance test plans for dc magnet power supplies, pulsed magnet power
supplies, pulsed Klystron modulator systems, and AC power distribution systems. Write installation, repair and maintenance procedures for SNS electrical systems. Performs safety analysis, designs/specifies safety circuits and interlocks. Design analog and digital circuit for low level controllers, develop and support existing PLC code to control modulator systems air control valve interlocks and High Voltage Converter Modulators pressure regulators. I was a Project Manager over several Accelerator improvement projects (AIP’s). For this particular project I was the principal design Engineer that managed the entire project from conception to final installation, I defined the scope; I put together all cost associated with software, installation, test, procurement, fabrication, integration as well as labor cost necessary for the software control engineer, technicians, research mechanics, and vendors. Microsoft Office Project was the program I used to create the schedule; I collaborated with department heads once all data was compiled. A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) was created, as well as the WBS activity resources units and cost. Once the AIP package was complete, I presented it by Power Point presentation to Department Of Energy (DOE) committee for approval. The DOE approved the AIP and released the funds. The project was completed on time and under budget.

Associate Engineer 3/1992 to 5/2000
Integrated Motions Inc. Berkeley, CA
Assist engineers in designing analog and digital circuits, for motion control devices. The analog circuits designed were circuits that used PWM for inputs to H-bridges, to drive current and voltages to the motor. Fast switching power supplies were used, Buck converters to regulate the voltage from +48 volts down to + 5 volts, boost converters were used to increase the voltage to +12 volts to supply voltage to the DAC’s. The Zero Force Robot used H-bridges which consisted of FET’s. A failure analysis was performed by me which led me to conclude that component matching was critical when using PWM. Half bridge and full bridge DC- DC converters were used to design and manufacture a five- stage amplifier controller for a five-axis DNA micro array spotter table. I prototyped the PWM board and, fabricated the layout. Prototyped PC boards, and designed PCB' using schematic capture software and tango software. Troubleshoot to the component level.
