Electronics EngineerQSA Global, Inc － La Porte, Texas
Collaboration with the electronics development of portable x-ray scanner systems used in the oil and gas industry.
Develop analog and digital electronic circuits and devices including designing printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) using Altium Designer and simulate circuits using PSPICE.
Embedded system development and firmware programming in C/C++ language using AVR microcontrollers and ARM processors.
This includes using Arduino and Raspberry Pi IDE tools.
Author and manage engineering documentation including electronic circuit board mechanical drawings, electrical schematics, wiring and block diagrams, bill of materials, work instructions, and product specification documents.
Hands-on electronic circuit board prototyping including soldering/desoldering of surface mount and thru-hole electronic components.
Test and troubleshoot electronic systems using workbench tools including multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, spectrum analyzers, and logic probes.
Projects Involved: OpenVision CF NDT and Security: Real-time video handheld x-ray imager with integrated x-ray source used to detect corrosion under insulation (CUI) on a pipe and other non-destructive testing applications.
The systems are also used for security applications including explosion and contraband detection.
Redesigned the cables and wire harnesses, power supply, x-ray tube control electronic circuits, and analog video signal processing circuits of the systems.
Automated X-Ray Tube Tester: A burn-in and performance x-ray tube tester with the capability of reading temperature, feedback current and voltages, switching mode power supply frequency, and radiation energy output.
The system uses multiple sensors connected to a NI PXI computer that captures sensor data in real-time and displays the measured information to a computer monitor using LabVIEW software.
The system is used to calibrate and check for quality issues of x-ray tubes.
PCBA and Wiring Harness Test Fixture: Tests voltage, current, and continuity parameters of printed circuit board assemblies using a probe testing system.
Developed a custom switchboard-like panel wiring/cable harness testing fixture that contains multiple connectors and receptacles.
The system tests for open, shorts, resistance, impedance on coaxial cables, and insulation resistances and capacitance parameters.
