  • Design of industrial control & data interfaces (RS422, CAN, USB, WiFi, ADC, DAC)
  • Design of low power switch-mode power supplies
  • PCB layout techniques for power supply and EMC performance
  • Design for manufacture and test suitable for medium production volumes

All the following personal attributes are required:
