Automate our lab with Python (with PC and Raspberry Pi) through GPIB, Ethernet, USB, and I2C (Aadrvark) (to connect, DC load, Power supply, DMM, Eval board and oscilloscope)4. Gave simulated results using PSPICE, Simplis (combined with PCB Cadence Sigrity/Broadband SPICE).5. Designed eval and demo board from schematic to PCB layout using Allegro system. Oversaw the production of these boards either from the overseas manufacturers or US manufacturers. Milpitas, CaliforniaPrincipal Application Engineer @ Fairchild - now part of ON Semiconductor Expert in1. DC/DC converter with digital control and digital interface like I2C, SPI and UART.2. MOSFET Transistor with smart driver.3. Passive components including caps to Li+ battery.4. Allegro System (OrCAD, PSPICE, Allegro PCB Editor, Sigrity simulation) expert.And Simplis.5. Used Python to automate the lab instruments measurements.6. Oscilloscope, Network Analyzer (use Touchstone to create the SPICE model), Spectrum analyzer PXA from Agilent (?), Power Meter, RF signal generator MXG, DMM, Function generator to Kikusui DC Load.7. Hand soldering down to 0201.8. Product definition, compliance testing plan, actual testing to publishing datasheet.9. Hardware design (circuit to PCB design) for prototype smart phone. From March 2012 to October 2015 (3 years 8 months) San Jose, CAStaff Application Engineer @ Renesas Electronics Corporation Experienced on1. Defining the power management IC for microprocessors, LED back light, Li ion battery charger, fuel cell controller for automotive and RFPA.2. Edit compliance/validation testing for IC to actually testing the chip on the bench to editing the datasheet.3. Design the schematic around the power management IC portion and the entire system. 4. Run SPICE program and Sigrity to check the PCB S-parameter and create SPICE model for the PCB to pass down to the design engineer to use for their simulation of circuit for both RF and high speed SerDes (USB) circuit.5. Design prototype PCB using Allegro PCB Editor.6. Designed a prototype mobile internet device (now it is called smart phone) based on Intel's Moorestown and NEC's PMIC and test the prototype.7. Worked on making a test/eval board to do the compliance testing on entire system including the RF, microprocessor to high speed SerDes (USB3.0)8. Plan the entire testing plan (compliance testing) which included testing the RF (OFDM) performance (such as Spurious, EVM, CCDF to IQ) to validate the IC in various temp9. Editing the datasheet to completion.10. Troubleshoot customer PCB and helped design customer PCB especially around RF, microprocessor and USB3.0 (and different SerDes like Xaui.)11. Offered many internal training for analog circuits as well as MOSFET transistors principles.12. Traveling to meet with customers in several locations to promote the products and help the customers design circuit and layout (using Sigrity to provide the best pcb solution.)13. Familiar with ASIL-D standard for application support for the IGBT/inverter controller to fuel cell management system for automotive.Designed and created several smart phone prototype using various HDI pcb manufacturing method. From May 2006 to March 2012 (5 years 11 months) San JoseSr. Application Engineer @ Taiyo Yuden 1. Design a circuit and PCB for the small DC/DC converter module using Cadence's Allegro (OrCAD and Allegro PCB editor.)2. Plan the compliance testing for the DC/DC converter module and actually testing them. (using scope to network analyzer for s-parameter.)3. Write the datasheet and application note for the DC/DC converter module.4. Managed the passive components for the DC/DC converter module and worked with the components engineers to come up with the best BOM solution for DC/DC converter module.5. Published application note for several passive components which are used for audio, power and signal integrity.6. Act as the field application engineer to promote the sales of both DC/DC converter module and passive components. From 2001 to 2003 (2 years) San Jose
