Hire Me

Looking for an experienced freelance design engineer? I’ve been designing electronics and writing embedded software for over 15 years with hundreds of thousands of units shipped. I specialize in automotive, industrial and embedded applications like:

  • Ruggedizing products. I’ve been testing and designing products for difficult conditions (vibration, temperature, electrical, water) for years. Put that experience to work solving your product challenges.
  • Embedded Linux and Android. There are a lot of ways to use Linux/Android in your product. I can help you choose the best solution to get you up and running quickly. If you need help with your application software I can help with that too!
  • Linux kernel drivers. I’ve worked on custom ARM SOC drivers, Video4Linux (v4l) drivers and custom video camera drivers. I can deliver faster because I understand hardware interfaces and how to debug them while working on the driver.
  • Networking. I’ve done a lot of work with network protocols (H263, H264, SIP), wireless protocols (Zigbee, Bluetooth) and serial links. I can help you quickly trouble shoot and fix your networking problems, saving you time and money.
  • Open source software. I can guide you myriad of open source licenses and what they mean to you and your business. I can also customize the software to your specific needs.
  • AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies. Need UL, SAE, DO or MILSTD compliance? I can help cut your testing costs by getting your design passing sooner and with fewer iterations.
  • SLA and Li-ion battery chargers. I can reduce your liability for charger failures by providing a safe, fault tolerant design based on my years of testing and experience.

Services I offer:

  • Electronics design. FPGAs, DSPs, microcontrollers, RF, analog, digital.
  • PCB layout using Pulsonix, Altium Designer or DesignSpark PCB. I can use other packages if you provide the license.
  • Embedded firmware. C, C++, assembler
  • Linux applications. C, C++, Python, PHP
  • Linux kernel drivers.
  • Android applications.
  • Product testing. Put my internal test lab to work for you.
