Expert Strategy Group Expert ID 12469
POWER ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY EXPERT
Electronics engineering professional with experience in analog signal-chain circuits, AC and DC power conversion circuits, battery charging/monitoring/control systems, and embedded systems microcontroller applications. I have written three books in the area of electronic power conversion. I have defined many mixed-signal analog, power management ICs, discrete devices, and microcontrollers. I have served as an expert witness for patent infringement cases in the areas of power and battery systems.

President, Lead Engineer
A self-operated consulting firm specializing in power/lighting/battery systems design and mixed signal semiconductor IC definition. Technical advisor /expert witness for patent infringement lawsuits involving power/lighting/battery/semiconductor systems.
Sr. Power and Analog Field Applications Engineer
I developed a digitally-controlled 40 A point of load (POL) synchronous buck converter reference design. I wrote a white paper analyzing the importance of POL regulators in multi-core processor environments and a paper on high-power white LED converters. I worked with the design engineers on the definition and design of the LED products, the digital controller products, and the analog SMPS products. I took the initiative to work with distributors, sales representatives based on my experience.
Pr. Analog Field Applications Engineer
Responsible for the western North America ( San Diego CA to Vancouver, UT, NM, CO, AZ) for the analog and power technical support for their analog and power products. I defined eight new analog/battery power management products and assisted with the definition and development for Microchip’s digitally-controlled MCU-based SMPS products. I wrote several in-depth analysis about the physical and silicon behavior of circuits in “real-world“ operating situations.
Energy Management Systems, LLC
President, Lead Engineer
A self-operated consulting firm specializing in power/battery systems design and mixed signal semiconductor IC definition. Some of the designs I produced were: a near-earth satellite solar-powered power system, a full-resonant (LLC) switching power supply demo circuit and application note, defined a family of high-voltage isolated (non-optical) semiconductor driver product family, a consumer rechargeable battery charger, white LED SMPS drivers, a Bluetooth accessory, and many others. Clients included; expert witness for patent attorneys, Ford (EV), NASA, Rayovac, Semtech, ST Microsystems, Philips Semiconductors, Fairchild, Silicon Laboratories, Motorola and many others. I wrote and published a revision to my second book.
Semiconductor Product Sector
Market Development Manager in Power, Field Applications Engineer.
I managed a group of engineers that was responsible for identifying, defining, and creating new products within the power, battery, and lighting markets. As a result of our efforts, we defined and created 8 new mixed signal, MCUs and discrete devices. I managed the development and marketing efforts worldwide within the lithium battery market. I wrote industry-leading articles and spoke at many cutting edge conferences. I was a consultant to the Motorola Corporation on advanced power technology which not only included semiconductors but UPS systems, battery systems and reliable power system design. I earned two patents in the switching power supply and Li-ion battery system fields. I wrote two books within the power supply design field, the second of which is used as a required tutorial for incoming power engineers at several major corporations. I was the top power FAE within Motorola SPS from 1989 to 1998.
