I love developing embedded products! It's my passion! I've worked on embedded systems across a wide range of industries and through all stages of the software lifecycle (Requirements, Design, Development, Testing, Debugging, Delivery, and Maintenance). My interests are focused on embedded systems with tough performance, reliability, safety, real-time, and/or power requirements. I communicate well, both orally and in writing, and I truly enjoy working with others. As a part of a team, I have a natural tendency to maintain a positive, accepting, and encouraging relationship among other team members.
I have worked on embedded systems across a diverse range of industries including military, aircraft, electronic warfare (EW), nuclear energy production, consumer products, and industrial automation. These experiences have led me through all stages of the product development lifecycle. Which includes brainstorming the initial concept, developing thorough requirements and specifications, creating detailed designs, performing product development and testing (of both hardware and software) and providing ongoing product support (e.g., maintenance, updates, customer support). Additionally, high-quality documentation is something I respect and strive to do myself.
Technical experiences include: designing electrical schematics, PCB layout (component placement and wire routing), generating BOM (bill of materials), board assembly, developing embedded software, and programming embedded software in Assembly, C, and C++. I'm familiar with several serial protocols including UART, I2C, SPI, RS-232, and RS-485, and all of the typical PC programs and test equipment necessary for troubleshooting and debugging software and circuits. Additionally I have experience with higher level languages such as Python, C#, VisualBasic, and others necessary to develop automated scripts and computer applications that communicate with and control embedded systems.
RESEARCH ENGINEER I @ While at GTRI I've had the opportunity to do the following:
● Design, develop, and update numerous embedded systems for military aircraft and associated test equipment for projects sponsored by the US Air Force, Air National Guard (ANG), and US Navy.
● Responsibilities include: conducive collaboration within a team, effective communication, problem-solving, software design, programming, performing tests, collecting data, analyzing data, writing technical documents, generating slides, presenting to customers and coworkers, and performing configuration management.
● Developed and documented two significant software updates for the F-16 Radar Warning Receiver (RWR). Together these updates integrated the RWR with a new Fire Control Radar (FCR) and a new jammer pod. Both updates were coded in assembly (MIL-STD-1750A).
● Designed, constructed, and programmed a standalone embedded device to verify upgrades to the F-15 RWR. A touchscreen with custom menus allowed the user to send commands and view diagnostic information from two serial connections (RS-485 and RS-232) while controlling the connected Radio Frequency (RF) equipment. Supervised an engineer who assisted with the software development. Authored all support documentation.
● Repurposed an existing embedded design into a lab based tool which accurately (50ns precision) and reliably delayed and stretched pulses. Twelve inputs receive pulses, and user-defined timing parameters produce new pulses which are mapped, in any combination, to one or more of the twelve outputs. Supervised a co-op through the development of a windows application, written in C#. Authored a majority of the support documentation.
● Regularly interfaced with the sponsors and oversaw the work carried out by a subcontractor, BAE.
● Made significant technical contributions to the development and release of the HOST Standard v1.0. Developed to provide an open-source hardware standard for high-performance mission computers designed for military use. From December 2011 to Present (4 years 1 month) Electrical Engineer @ ● Programmed PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers), VFD’s (Variable Frequency Drives), and a 3D imaging system for automated manufacturing processes
● Generated and verified industrial electrical schematics
● Wired, tested, and tagged electrical panels
● Designed and programmed HMI (Human-Machine Interface) touch screens for machine operators
● Projects ranged the following industries: automotive, natural gas, power generation, pharmaceutical, consumer goods, industrial chemicals, glass, carpet, and hardwood lamination
● Worked closely with nationally recognized companies such as Johnson & Johnson, GLAD, Clorox, P&G, Mercedes, Viracon, Toyo Tires, Mohawk, and EcoLab
● Worked closely with several PMP certified project managers and senior level controls engineers to design and develop unique and innovative control systems From December 2010 to July 2011 (8 months) Embedded Systems Engineer - Part Time @ Embedded Systems Engineer / Research Assistant
• Designed, programmed, and constructed a custom embedded device to control and monitor deep UV LED's for water sterilization
• Assisted in the development and execution and data collection of experiments
• Contributed to technical writing for reports, research publications, and funding proposals
• Constructed test fixtures for various biological and LED performance experiments From May 2008 to December 2009 (1 year 8 months) Charlotte, North Carolina AreaIT Support Technician Part Time @ Constructed, installed, and serviced “smart podiums”, projectors, large flat-panel touch screens, and computers, in classrooms and conference rooms across campus.
Answered and responded to urgent technical support calls from active classes. From August 2006 to May 2008 (1 year 10 months) Electrical Engineer Summer Internship @ Summer internship at the Oconee Nuclear Power plant. Responsibilities included documenting the level of security of various digital systems throughout the plant for the NRC mandated “Cyber Security Adherence Document”.
Evaluated, inspected, verified, corrected, and documented issues ranging from equipment malfunction to
technical drawing errors.
Required a nuclear facility security clearance. From May 2007 to August 2007 (4 months)
Master of Science (MS), Electrical and Computer Engineering @ Georgia Institute of Technology From 2010 to 2012 BS, Electrical and Electronics Engineering @ University of North Carolina at Charlotte From 2005 to 2009 Clarke Monroe is skilled in: Embedded Systems, Embedded C, Microcontrollers, People Skills, Communication Skills, Programming, Embedded Software, Matlab, C++ Language, Visual Basic, VHDL, Simulations, Labview, Systems Programming, UAV
