Electrical/Software Engineer

DigitalGrid, Inc., Suite One, 201 Moreland Road, Hauppauge, N.Y. (631) 271-7092

Had a wide range of responsibilities which included designing, implementing and troubleshooting new and existing products and test systems, plus producing 3D CAD drawings and PCB layouts with an eye toward precision and detail. Products and test systems developed involved both designing and troubleshooting digital and analog circuits, real-time embedded systems, writing and debugging firmware, and developing GUI applications to interface with hardware. Regularly worked in the field with major power utilities’ personnel and equipment in a team setting to troubleshoot my company’s electronic and communications equipment. Kicked off development of next generation G3-PLC power-line communications technology into existing products which included research, RF design, and testing of potential solutions


Key Accomplishments

  •  Was principal in the design and implementation of an automated test system whose job it was to fully test and generate reports for the company’s principal product, which was instrumental in finding many problems. Created all aspects of the test system including hardware, firmware, PCB layout of a multi-processor real-time mixed signal embedded system, plus GUI for automated testing and reporting.
  • Successfully assembled and setup communications subsystem for power companies’ SCADA network, utilizing DNP3 protocol and fiber optics technologies, which allowed them to remotely monitor and control distribution equipment in the field.
  • Created 3D, 2D and assembly documentation for large portion of the companies’ products in Solid works CAD software, including drawings showing cable routing and wire harnesses.

    Electrical Engineer

    TII Network Technologies, Inc.

    Performed all phases of new product development, existing product modification, and troubleshooting, successfully and on time, from initial electronics design and simulation, to prototyping and initial testing, to PCB layout design and fabrication, to final testing in a custom made test system. Quickly emerged as company’s resident RF testing expert from rookie status through experience and self-directed study utilizing network analyzer and specialized telecom equipment and custom designed circuits and setups. Consistently produced well-written test procedures and technical reports in a timely manner, which contributed to engineering, sales and management personnel formulating more accurate long- and short-range plans. Also, helped develop new and innovative line of embedded microcontroller telecommunications switches, which assists telecom providers in provisioning new network installations remotely and save on truck rolls. These products have made millions for the company since.
