"Your Outside
Engineering Department"
  I design reliable electronic products and provide my customers with all that they need: documentation, prototypes, small runs, contract manufacturer spin-up, continuing engineering and field/customer support.
How can I help you and your company?
  System Design/ System Architecture
  Deciding on what functionality is in hardware, what is in software, what is local and what is placed remotely. I work with you to decide these and other system-level decisions.
  Electronics Design
  I bring years of experience designing, building, and setting into production: boards, panels, handheld units, motor control, networked equipment, wireless modules, factory control equipment, LED, LCD, OLED Displays, and many other electronic devices.
  Software Design
  I work in the C, C++, and ASM embedded code, Netburner code, and C# in the windows environment. Myriad devices and windows applications I have designed are working everyday, solving problems and performing work for my customers.
  Microprocessor Design
  I have worked with many manufacturer's chips, and I specialize in the Microchip 32 bit, 16 bit, 8 bit Microchip parts. I am a Microchip Gold Design Partner, and the designs I have in the field won't go obsolete (thanks to Microchip's commitment to older parts).
  Communication Technologies
  My designs communicate with other computing entities using hardware standards like Ethernet, USB, CAN, Wireless, serial protocols speaking software standards like TCP/IP, SSL, SMTP, ICMP, FTPS, SFTP, USB HID, and others.
  Electric Design
  I have designed medical and industrial product's electrical systems as well. I have two of these products passed by TUV. I also have experience working with UL testing- both power and EMI conformance.
  PC Board Layout, Fabrication, Assembly
  I have the tools necessary to layout big boards, little boards, multi-layer boards, simple boards, and dense boards. I build my own prototypes and small production runs as well. When the time comes, I create production packages for Contract Manufacturers to make large runs for my customers.
  The Ruff Designs Network
  I maintain a network of talented engineering professionals, suppliers, and contractors ready to assist in all phases of product development and support.
