I have experience in various areas of electronic design including: embedded systems, analog circuits, high power switching controls, low power battery operated devices, wireless designs, microcontroller (AVR, ARM, PIC...) systems and design of high performance processor systems running embedded Linux. My primary EDA is Altium Designer. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Free free to contact me to discuss your project. If you require I can also assist you in formulating the full project requirements by recommending suitable technology. No matter what your technical background is, I can ... moretransform your product idea into reality using the best and most efficient technology available. If you require I can also fully assist you into moving your product to production, recommending suitable suppliers and providing full technical assistance during the entire process. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Some more details about my design experience. I have specific microcontroller experience with: - Atmel: Atmega, Attiny, Atxmega, AT90CAN and AVR32 series - ST: STM32 ARM Cortex series - NXP: LPC11Cxx series - Freescale: Kinetis W series - Microchip: PIC (various) - TI: MSP430F series Past product development experiences highlights include: - Schematic/PCB design of a high performance ARM Cortex-A8 (Freescale i.MX53) embedded system with 2GB DDR3 RAM, LAN, HSPDA+ Modem and POE supply. Also developed the complete custom embedded GNU/Linux system for the application. - Schematic/PCB design of various Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices (temperature sensor, motion tracker, UV sensor, humidity sensor, pressure sensor), with ultra-low power battery operation mostly based on Nordic NRF51822 SoC. Design of custom PCB trace antenna and antenna matching circuit. Also developed related firmware. - Schematic/PCB design of MPPT Solar tracking LiPo Charger for LED lamp. Including accurate measurement of energy transfer to/from battery and battery running time optimizations. Also developed related firmware and PC software - Schematic/PCB design of a high accuracy RTD probe measurement system with secure WiFi interface, LAN interface, USB interface and crypto-authentication. Includes backup NiCd battery with onboard charger. Also developed related firmware and server backend software. - Schematic/PCB design of a touch screen TFT driver board based on AVR32 and dedicated graphics controller. Including RS485 interface to central control board. Also developed related firmware. - Schematic/PCB design of ZigBee/IEEE 802.15.4 and 6loWPAN wireless devices both on 2.4GHz band as well as sub-1Ghz (915MHz/868MHz/433MHz) bands with custom PCB trace antenna / external antenna and antenna matching circuit. Also developed related firmware. - Various Schematic/PCB/Firmware design project for high power solid state switching industrial controls and thermal management controls. less

    Joystick mouse and game controller emulator
    George did an awesome Job, unfortunately, due to company restructuring, the project had to be cancelled. He has always been open to satisfy the various changes that occurred during the project development. I would recommend George to anyone needing a very skilled and professional engineer to get the job done. I would definitely cooperate with him again in the future!

    George made it easy for me to work through a project in which I lack significant knowledge. He has commending knowledge in his field. He filled in the blanks when it was challenging. I would recommend George to any one who needs a professional and committed contractor. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
