LINKS TO COMPANIES I'VE WORKED FOR (7/23/08)
I do consulting and contract work in the area of signal
processing. My specialties, from an industry perspective, are
algorithm design and embedded programming. I generally work with
tools such as Matlab/Octave, C/C++, and embedded DSP assembly.
Here are some of the industrial companies I've worked
for who have web pages.
- ABB Automation (name changed from Asea
Robotics to ABB while I was there) The first engineering job I
had. A good bunch of people to work with but not the exact match
for my area. ABB makes quality industrial
robots. (Amazing things to watch, actually.) Where I worked
the primary service was building systems which integrate an ABB robot
robots into an automated process such as assembling and deburring
blocks, gluing and installing windshields with precision that can't be
by manual assembly, etc.
- Camtronics Medical Systems (acquired by
Emageon) Camtronics made digital imaging solutions for hospital
catheterization and fluoroscopy rooms. I worked on the Video Plus
Instrument Technologies (now a part of LDS) I contributed
primarily to the Odyssey multi-channel signal recorder. This
may or may not be available in some form. But it did stay on the
market a fairly long time, in terms of computer technology lifespans,
most likely because it has a lot of features both in hardware and
software contributed by a fairly big group of engineers.
Healthcare (name changed from Nicolet Biomedical to VIASYS sometime
between assignments I had, now owned by
CardinalHealth) I contributed to the SNAP product,
which was acquired by Everest Biomedical. [The SNAP link above is
broken, but I can't find what happened to the product, or Everest for
Neurotechnology Systems Highly university-based,
technology-transfer company specializing in brain machine interface and
related neuro-signal processing technologies. I contributed to
the CEREBUS product.
- Digital Design Corporation
DDC does a wide array of integrated circuit design for larger companies
and a little bit of software. Nice group of people, but I wasn't
there too long.
