After many years as an engineer in electronics design, I decided it is time to start a website with my views about this wonderful art.
I live in Southern California. I have a beautiful and smart wife, who is very supportive of my work. I have a daughter at law-school in New York, who spends all my money on tuition and Broadway shows. (Update: My daughter is now an attorney in New York and is financially independent!) I have a neurotic cat whose only desire is to sleep in a dark, hidden place for most of the day, except at mealtimes.
I finished my PhD some years ago and I have a great job as an Electrical Engineer where I spend my time designing analog and mixed-signal design circuits. At the same time, I teach PHP, MySQL, C#, Computer Organization and Assembly Language and Electronics.
I lead a quiet life at home so, what better time to start this website and show the world that analog and mixed-signal design is not a mixture of cryptology and black magic, but rather an art that can solve a problem in many ways.
As in Mathematics, where some solutions to problems are regarded as elegant, in electronics one can enjoy the same treat, that warm, fuzzy feeling of achievement, after a circuit is designed and works as expected. This is not difficult. This is art, real and powerful and relevant.
