Summary

I am an electronic hobbyist and entrepreneur who enjoys converting ideas into working, profitable and sellable embedded electronic products.

I have been playing with electronics since the age of 12. I started my first job in India's first computer company in 1979 and sold my first design to Railways in 1982 during Asian Games and it was installed at All stadiums indicating next train timing.

Focus in 2012 is on M2M communication ie using Mobile, WiFi, Bluetooth, TCP/IP to control and monitor various things like temperature, light, door, security etc..... And as per current trends almost all the designs will incorporate touch screen and color graphics displays.

Learning and sharing knowledge is a passion. I am working on training few students of class X at Nithari Village, Noida using Raspberry-Pi (low cost PC costing). Target is to make 3 students of class X become embedded developer.

Work is fun for me. I keen on working till I succeed. In case of failures, I restart quickly.

I love life and live it powerfully.

Commercial Products Designed

Set Top Converter(1995)

Based on idea provided by Mr Zaidi.

Developed in 1995 when all color TVs had 12 channels and Cable TV offered 30 channels. Design was done using SAMSUNG cable tv tuner which converted any cable tv channel to Channel E3 for TV.

Talk about Open Source Hardware

EFY Con 2012

GSM Enabled Devices - Focus Product for 2013-2015

Remote monitoring and control of devices is required at number of places. Adding GSM functionality to an electrical appliance or vehicle allow the owner to monitor and control from any where,

Some examples are as below

1. You are away from home and your maid servant switches on Air Con and watches TV. Worst, she invites neighbors 'Ramu' and ..... A GSM device installed in home wiring send an SMS when electrical load consumption increases beyond expected level.

2. Your Kid's school bus is delayed and you are wondering what has happened. You are also curious  to know if it is being driven safely. Well just send as SMS  and bus will reply back with location and speed. You are also sure that as and when driver over-speeds an SMS is sent by bus to the school autorities.

Need and demand of these devices is increasing. 

We have the skills and experience on designing electronic hardware and interfacing with any thing (read the commercial products designed list) and with GSM.

Education

19761979

Diploma in Electronics and Communications

Pusa Polytechnic

I joined this place after I cleared my Higher Secondary examinations (11th Standard). Though it lacked the typical college atmosphere and it was referred as "Pappu Pathshala", I really enjoy the hard work and efforts put in by the faculty members to train us, the raw students who had no idea about future life.

Thanks to our HOD Mr Baldev Raj, Our great respected teachers Mr P.K. Jain, Mr I.M. Kapoor, Mr Avtar Singh, Mr Kataria and others. They trained me in electronics and I became who I am today, an electronics hobbyist and a successful entrepreneur doing embedded electronics business.

I love my "Pathshala"

Ravi kant Taxali, Deepak Grover and Virender Bhasin were my college friends. I have lost contact with Virender Bhasin. Ravi and Deepak are still in touch.

19731976

Higher Secondary(11th)

Govt Boys Higher Secondary School, B Block, Janakpuri

My school after I shifted to Janakpuri.

Government school that trained me and shaped me.

I still remember our principal sir Mr R.N. Rai, a strict person who uses to take our chemistry classes and Mr Manchanda who taught us Maths.

19761972

Secondary School (8th)

Arwachin Bharti Bhawan School

I studied from Class IV to Class VIII here. I appeared in board exams of class V as well of class VIII from this school.

My maths teacher Ms Vibha was a wonderful teacher.

My class fellows included Amita Gogia and whose father was in railways and Neerja.

Arun and Anurup Sharma remained in touch for a long time and slowly we lost touch with them.
