    CV

    Electronics engineer with 5+ years of experience in controller and circuit card design, as well as system integration and qualification, mainly in the aerospace industry. Strong background in analog electronics and control theory. Self-initiative and commitment to teamwork to solve sophisticated problems. Multilingual communication skills. Quick adaptable learner and motivated questioner.

     

    Professional Experience

    Senior electronics design engineer

    [Company name undisclosed]

    2009 – 2010

    Helped the project team analyze torque output and electrical input requirements of a servo system to be mounted on airplanes, in order to determine design specifications for the motor control card to drive this system

    Performed electrical and thermal circuit simulations, negotiated board mechanical outline and matters related to card's digital parts such as the MCU and FPGA, and designed the first such combined motor control card in the department, per specifications and applicable reliability standards, with the following capabilities:

    Drive and control 1 brushless and 2 brush DC motors up to 60V/300W each, with the architecture allowing FOC

    Control 2 solenoid brakes, and condition feedback signals from 2 encoders and 2 resolvers

    Manage various supplementary circuitry such as RS232/RS422 communication, voltage reference generation, internal failure checks, buffering, filtering, etc

    Drafted schematics of a 28V/50W heater and fan control card for a UAV mission computer and a 3.3V/1W heater control card for a HUD mini LCD, reviewed schematic and board layout of a high-precision resolver-to-digital conversion card, and supervised 3 junior engineers implementing these designs

    Electronics design engineer

    [Company name undisclosed]

    2005 – 2009

    Assisted the project team in developing stabilization and tracking algorithms, and in tuning and testing the control loops of a 4-axis gimballed FLIR system mounted on UAVs and helicopters, to be sold to a foreign customer as part of an international project

    Devised experiments for stabilization and controller performance evaluations, and performed HIL tests for these

    Actively took on extra roles in system integration processes and qualification tests

    Upgraded test setup to speed up plant dynamics and frequency response analysis tasks, which enabled to save significant engineering time in recurrent plant identification, tuning and controller performance tests

    Organized and performed auxiliary tasks for the development of this system, such as revisions of mechanical designs and cablings for its heater, spotter camera and hand control units, and redesign of a CPLD based card for the hand control unit

    Designed and verified several multi-layered analog and mixed-signal cards of varying complexity for the system, including a 100V/1kWx3 heater control card with fan feedback signal conditioning, a humidity sensor card, and a DC/DC power converter and filtering card, per appropriate reliability and production standards

    On own initiative diagnosed problems of the spotter camera unit in the system and demonstrated its successful operation, thus eliminated a potential investment loss and helped the team pass upcoming system qualification tests without delay

    Modified and manually finalized the production of a small batch of spotter optical assembly control cards in order to accelerate system integration and meet delivery deadline for acceptance tests during a busy period of the project

    Compiled and documented relevant information, by overcoming challenges of poor previous documentation where needed, and kept databases of components supplied from a diverse geographical distribution of vendor companies

    Research assistant

    [Company name undisclosed]

    2004 – 2005

    Programmed image velocimetry algorithms for visualization and velocity estimation of microscale gas flow, and conducted experiments to capture images for processing, results of which were published in a project report

    Trained 2 students to carry out the experiments and use the programs

    Lab assistant

    [Company name undisclosed]

    2004

    Developed a neural network controller for a 5-dof industrial robot and implemented its virtual reality simulation
