Raytheon Company, SAS － El Segundo, CaliforniaPrincipal Electrical Engineer
Mixed-Signal Packaging and Process Design
Lead/ Senior PWB Designer of multiple designs for several strategic airborne programs, all based around Panel Array and Antenna methodology as well as CCA PWBs and flex circuits ranging from DC-Q Band.
Proficient user of CAD software including Cadence Allegro/ PCB Designer Suite, Intercept Mozaix/ Pantheon and some Mentor.
Provided leadership role for Design Area, implemented drawing development, developed pwb/schematic libraries and created PWB and DFM guidelines.
Designed and developed Panel Array boards based on use of exotic materials, very busy routing in tight areas, complex fabrication processes, pushing the envelope development mentality with tight schedules.
These designs range in size from postage stamp modules/boards to very large motherboards/panels.
Designed and developed substrate modules and CCA boards, all using a mixture of RF and DC technology and routed over 2-20 layers using complex and custom MIC packaging and bumped chips.
Designs demand strategic placement of B/B vias due to complexity of routing and components.
Improved and developed ongoing DFM rules and guidelines before, during and after fabrication processes.
Initialized and improvised advanced interconnection of boards and flex harnessing to improved RF power biasing and reduction of RF/DC noise related conditions inherent to antenna unit design.
Designed flex circuits to enable practical and high technology performance harnessing of a complex antenna unit.
Flex circuits were tough due to varying demands to size, shape, mixed signal routing and an envelope pushing strategy.
Developed new layering and routing techniques with these very customized designs.
