Twenty plus years as both an individual contributor and as a project leader. Expertise in the RF/microwave and analog fields. Product development experience from concept to production within budget and schedule constraints. Member of architectural design team tasked to evaluate project goals, and bring initial concept to a realizable set of requirements. Defined specifications, schedules and manpower requirements. Strong team player by assisting others in the group by applying skills in the area of high speed and noise sensitive designs. Defined production test plans and training supporting engineers as products moved to sustaining phase. Design expertise at the IC level, thick and thin film hybrid circuits and PCB.
Alcatel USA (formerly Astral Point Communications acquired in April of •••••) ••••• to ••••• Team Leader/Principal Design Engineer
Currently managing technical resources for a large Matrix Switch which is being evaluated by AT&T and other major telecommunications customers. I have also recently developed designs to operate at •••••Gbits/sec across copper back plane. Previously was the Project Leader and Architect for the OC••••• (•••••Gbits/sec) LineCards and OC••••• Transponder. These products have now successfully transitioned into production after a design and development cycle of less than one year.

LeCroy Corporation, Spring Valley, N.Y. ••••• to ••••• Senior Electronic Engineer for Corporate Research and Development
Responsibilities included designing multi gigahertz wide band front ends used in oscilloscopes. Designs included MMIC amplifiers using an advanced process involving Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors. Also designed thick and thin film hybrids. Experience involves layout of both MMIC and hybrid circuits as well as extensive use of CAE simulation tools. Other responsibilities include project management including moving designs into production. Last work included evaluation of 8 bit, 2 Gs/s ADC designs based on HBT technology and new amplifier design based on same technology. Also evaluated various technologies for future front designs including InP and SiGe processes.
