I Graduated in 1990 with a B.S. in Computer Engineering. My first 14 years I worked at an engineering consulting firm developing Ethernet print servers, terminal servers, and Ethernet Bridges. I worked on the PCB and low level microcode but mostly FPGA/ASIC logic design. Next, I moved on to video camera development where I've written user interface microcode but mostly focus on FPGA logic design that handles component communications and all the image processing from the imager through to the display. I've always enjoyed collecting evaluation/development boards, so when I came across the Arduino platform, I realized it was something special - so easy and quick to develop on. I needed to put together a class to share this interest with others!
