Service Description

As my skill set shows, my main area of technical expertise would be in the area of electronics. I have about 16 years of experience in designing microcomputer-based circuits, which included both hardware design and software programming. I mainly use C/C++ or assembly language when programming and debugging.

In recent years, I've been limiting myself to witing technical documentation for applications, devices, and systems, as this seems to be a more suitable line of work at the moment. Most of the writing jobs I've had in recent months have been on general topics in electronics, such as latest developments, tutorials, description of new IC's, etc. I have written articles on topics like semiconductor theory, noise reduction techniques, energy harvesting, etc. I have also written a tutorial on electronic circuit design and another tutorial for a software application. The software related jobs usually involve some programming and coming up with new concepts and algorithms.
