Personal statement

At the moment I am involve in a group who handles PCB design for TTI & Solar Wide Ind. Ltd.. Our product is a mixture of power tools, power supplies, consumer products & some as described below. I also draft procedures & guidelines based on Industry standard; I also maintain our project database, libraries & footprints and give tutorials on how to use Altium Designer to new & existing colleagues.

In Solar Wide, I design PCB’s for Thermal Imaging, Thermal Gun, Stud sensors, ultrasonic measuring, smart tools for iPhone & Android, radios & many other consumer products which we market for the US & Europe. I have been doing PCB’s for the past 20yrs. mostly for consumer, home tools & novelty products, in spite of these I want to enhance my skills especially in the field of RF, Audio & High Speed Circuits using BGA’s, DDR rams & HDI’s.

I use Altium Designer software but also had experienced Pads & Orcad many years ago. I also interface our PCB’s inside 3D ID’s & make 3D libraries using Altium itself. I can speak a little Cantonese & Mandarin but my main language is English which was beneficial to my HK & China colleagues because some are now fluent in it.
