1994 - 1999: Wireless Products Lead Design Engineer. In this position I was responsible
for designing an innovative machinery condition monitoring system. This system, for
which I have received two patents with more pending, combines low power electronics
with a 2.4 GHz direct sequence spread spectrum transceiver to achieve one of the world's
first marketable industrial wireless smart sensors. I was personally responsible for the
design of the entire sensor including the R.F., analog, microprocessor, and power supply
sections. I was also the responsible engineer for the overall system architecture.
