(01/15 – 04/17) Embedded Systems Engineer, Sabbatical
Completed the Embedded Systems Engineering Certificate at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Used and studied numerous off-the-shelf evaluation kits, reference designs, schematics, and datasheets. Performed comprehensive studies of embedded design topics including Schematic Design, PCB Layout, and Signal Integrity (stack-up planning, decoupling, bypass, signal propagation, termination, ground bounce, EMI/EMC). Designed and built custom PCB boards using ARM9 and Cortex-M System-on-Chip (SoC) MCUs. Acquired hands-on experience in SMT assembly, PCB rework, prototyping, and use of lab test equipment and measuring tools. Configured cross-compiler toolchains, IDEs, SDKs, debuggers, and JTAG flashing tools to develop bootloaders, drivers, and firmware. Interfaced USB devices, graphic displays, audio codecs, NAND and serial flash memories, SD cards, and wireless modules based on Bluetooth, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, GSM/GPRS, and proprietary mesh networks. Ported open-source libraries such as FATFS, YAFFS2, libJPEG, libPNG, libZ, libMAD to the Cortex-M platform and also rolled up custom libraries to build user interfaces with custom graphics, fonts, and sound. Performed development in VxWorks, FreeRTOS, Embedded Linux, bare-metal firmware, drivers to interface hardware, and board bring-up tasks: kernel configuration using Buildroot and BusyBox, customizing the root file system, and setting U-boot to load and boot the kernel either from an onboard NAND UBIFS partition or over the network using TFTP and NFS servers.
