Here's a little information about me and this site:
Electronics and computing has always been one of my interests ever since I
was at school. At that time all you had were the discrete 74 series TTL and
4000 series CMOS chips and I remember being fascinated learning about each
one. At college I took A level electronics and passed with an A grade, then
onto a university course in electronic engineering where I achieved a 2.1 with
From there I went into an electronics career starting out in communications where I did some practical real world electronics and designed and built a multi drop (single wire) telephony system using FPGAs.
Then onto many different projects including military stuff using an 196KC embedded microcontroller programmed in C. After this using Altera 10k series and VHDL for a mobile telephone tester system.
One trouble when doing hardware or software in industry is you tend to
be labeled as either a hardware or software engineer.- the trouble is I am
equally fascinated with both.
This is one of the reasons that this site was made - it allows me to use both hardware and software skills to develop interesting projects and there is no labeling! Plus you get to share in these projects (and hopefully learn a bit of software / hardware along the way).
