Experience

OpenLPC, Encinitas, CA May 2011- September 2011
Hardware Engineer

• Designed competitively priced development boards using NXP’s LPC1769
and LPC2148 microcontrollers.
• Assisted in sales and support for a UCSD undergraduate engineering course.
• Developed and laid out multisided circuit boards with audio, USB, and

IEEE/Senior Design Project, San Diego, CA October 2009 – June 2012
Project Team Lead, Hardware, and Software Design

Summary: ViaCar/Natcar is an autonomous robotics competition hosted by UC San Diego and UC Davis respectively. 1/10th scale RC cars must navigate around an unknown course either optically or by sensing a wire carrying a 75kHz 100mA sine wave. My design used a mixed signal approach. Four inductors tuned to resonate at 75kHz were mounted on a boom in front of the car chassis, the induced signal was then bandpass filtered and amplified. Each of the 4 channels was routed to an analog multiplexer which fed into a 3MSPS 12 bit ADC. Peak detection and additional averaging of the signal was done digitally. Each of the channels were compared and a PID control algorithm positioned the steering servo while another control loop set the PWM of the DC drive motor.

• Coordinated a team of three to design electrical hardware and software.
• Researched and prototyped analog filters and amplifiers.
• Designed a switch-mode buck regulator for high current servo power supply.
• Developed a speed and steering controller integrating PID control.
• Wrote embedded software in C and assembly for ARM Cortex-M3, ARM7-TDMI, and AVR 8bit microcontrollers.
• Represented UCSD as one of four teams at three annual autonomous vehicle competitions.

Leucadia Cyclery, Leucadia, CA January 2004 – Present
Mechanic/Website Design
• Designed and updated the store website utilizing HTML, PHP, CSS, and Javascript.
• Repaired, assembled, and modified new and used bicycles.
• Created and maintained an inventory of bicycle stock and sales.
• Managed store opening and closing, assisted customers with sales and support.
