To obtain a position as a PRODUCT DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
SOFTWARE ENGINEER especially in the area of designing software
for embedded systems, IBM PCs, or other microprocessor based
systems of medium to large scale. Current expertise is in
hardware-software interfacing, such as: device drivers, interrupt
service routines, and other real time critical event processing.
Languages used: C/C•••••, assembler, Fortran•••••, and some Visual Basic.
At this time, due to the depressed marketplace for software engineers,
I am looking for any position in Electronics from small circuit
design, prototyping/breadboarding, circuit debug, hardware
interfacing (low-level programming), circuit repair, or Q/A
testing. I have a very strong background in Digital electronics

Performed setup, test and adjustment of electronic equipment used to
convert PC or Workstation I/O (keyboard, mouse, audio, RS••••• serial,
USB and video) to optical data stream for recreation at a remote
location. Have working knowledge of low power laser operation and
transmission of data over fiber optic media. Used scopes and optic
power meters to tune laser controllers to correct operating levels.
Did Beta testing on new firmware releases from engineering to see if
bugs were fixed or new features worked properly. Created test
procedures for new products for which none were established.
Preformed troubleshooting on units that did not pass operational tests
to the component level and made necessary repairs.

Sr. Software Design Eng. - New Product Development
Designed/coded/debugged driver software for the Mindspeed ••••• SONET
framer chip used in a Broadband (ATM) Automated Voice Information
System. The program was created as a task for VxWorks Operating
System running on a Motorola PowerQUICC II MPC••••• processor. The
program initially configured the framer with user specified defaults,
optionally allowed parameter modification through a host interface,
and periodically obtained or maintained framer statistics such as
transmit/receive cell counts, network performance, and various error
conditions. Also created an Error Logger task for the same OS to
receive error messages from other system applications, encode the
errors into a common format, and send them to the host for recording
and more specific action. Development system was a networked PC
based workstation into a UNIX host environment.

assembler. The weighing systems collected more than just weigh.
Other vehicle parameters such as: road speed, RPM, alarm
conditions, illegal lifts, etc. were also recorded. These
parameters were used to verify correct vehicle operation and
aided in periodic maintainance and route adjust for efficiency.
