I am an Electronic Engineer and work at Philips Ultrasound
(formerly Advanced Technology Laboratories) in Bothel, WA, a manufacturer of UltraSound
Previously, I designed Video Processors for CCTV applications for Security Systems at
Advanced Technology Video, Inc in Redmond, WA. Prior
to ATV, I worked at Loral Corporation Conic Division in San Diego. My area of concentration
is video applications especially digital image processing. In this page, I've compiled a
listing of companies in the Seattle area who employ electronic engineers with video
I've been involved in all aspects of product design from initial product conception (including
writing product specifications), through product development including board level design and
enclosure specification, and on to prototyping, debugging, and system integration, and finally
through to production. Continuing activities after initial product release include training and
assisting production line technicians and customer support. I have a keen aptitude for
debugging and troubleshooting with a proficient knowledge and use of lab and test equipment.
During product development, issues under consideration have included reliability,
manufacturability, design for test, EMI/EMC, and low cost.
After initial board level design, firmware and software design consumes the majority of the
next phase of design. During this phase, most of my time has been spent developing FPGA designs
for high speed digital image processing. Although I'm familiar with Xilinx, Altera, and other
FPGA devices, I have 12 years experience using Xilinx and Actel FPGAs. Some of this experience
has been developing highly die efficient designs with gate level schematic capture. Over the
past 6 years I've primarily used VHDL and Verilog HDLs in my FPGA designs.
