Recent work applying C, STM32CubeIDE, Percepio
⦁ Created custom firmware for a Gateway communication board used by the in vitro diagnostic machine to serve as a gateway between the system hardware and user interface software running on an embedded Windows OS. Firmware was designed to run on an STM32F479BIT6 MCU running FreeRTOS
⦁ Designed, maintained, and improved upon circuits boards of up to 8 layers containing both analog and digital circuitry to include:
Communication (SPI, I2C, Ethernet, RS-485), filters, microprocessors, power regulation, general I/O, LED and solenoid circuits.
⦁ Structured OutputJob Files in Altium Designer, in order to expedite the ordering process for all printed circuit board assemblies created
⦁ Developed new designs to mitigate PCB susceptibility to Electrostatic discharge(ESD), transients, and surge events.
⦁ Headed a multidisciplinary team tasked with creating an End-of-line safety test fixture for 61010 compliance testing of the company's production builds. The safety test fixture has been certified and successfully audited by TUV Rheinland; a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).
⦁ Worked with TUV to achieve certification of the company's main product for EIC 61010 compliance. Was able to successfully procure the cTUVus certification that allows for the placement of this mark on the final product.
⦁ Developed ESD safe workstations for company use and training on proper handling while transporting to or from workstation areas (EPAs)
Recent work applying LabVIEW programming language:
⦁ Created program to determine thermal bonding agent issue that impacted heating uniformity of the resistive heating assemblies
⦁ Multiple applications created to run functional testing of finished control board firmware for various production assemblies prior to final installation in production
⦁ Worked in a team lab environment on construction and testing of Aerodyne's Compact Quantum Cascade Laser Trace Gas monitor and Dual Quantum Cascade Laser Trace Gas monitor. These efforts included R&D development of internal use prototypes and supporting electronics.
⦁ Learned Altium Design software in order to create printed circuit board designs and project OutputJob Files for new and current electronics, which cut overall build times.
⦁ Documented machine cabling, enabling outsourcing of this work to a cable house. Further streamlining production output.
⦁ Created build documentation and instructional manuals for Aerodyne's astigmatic multi-pass absorption cells and proprietary laser housings.
⦁ Developed kitting methodology and created Excel book documents to streamline component allocation and warehousing of custom aluminum, optical, and electronic build materials. Interfaced with all associated vendors and manufacturers for part procurement. Fully assembled, aligned, tested, and packaged astigmatic multi-pass absorption cells and laser housings for both product inventory and individual sale. Interfaced with customers for all purchase orders (POs) pertaining to the individual sales of both product lines.
⦁ Led three recovery teams consisting of seven soldiers; as the Sergeant in charge of recovery operations for Operations Iraqi Freedom II. Primary tasks included retrieval operations of disabled convoy equipment and support operations for FOB Gabe security and site logistics.
⦁ Deployed to KFOR Kosovo in the Balkans regions of southeastern Europe as a specialist with Charlie Company.Worked as a guard and combat engineer while stationed in Kosovo at camp Bondsteel and Monteith.
