Main expertise

My main experience is by far related to Microcontrollers. I have developed embedded peripheral drivers for: Displays (LCD & OLED), Capacitive Touchscreens, motor control, etc.
My most recent experience is an application around Smart Bluetooth / Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
I mostly develop Bare Metal with a recent experience in embedded RTOS.

Controllers

- 2017-18: TI CC2640R2F BLE 5 multi role (central + peripheral), RTOS, ARM® Cortex®-M3. Secure encrypted OTA firmware upgrade.
- 2016: Cypress PSoC 4 BLE, ARM® Cortex®-M0.
- 2015: Atmel SAM4C, ARM® Dual-Cortex®-M4.
- 2015: Atmel XMEGA and all Atmel capacitiv touch controllers MaxTouch (MXT).
- Microchip p18f4431 for 3-Phases BLDC motor control.
- Microchip 8-16-32-dsPIC microcontrollers.
- Freescale MC9S12DP512 (Motorola), multilingual graphic color LCD for explosive atmosphere.

- UI: LCD & Oled drivers. RAMTEX GUI graphic library, capacitive touch controllers.
- Peripheral drivers: UART, Flash, ADC, DMA, PWM, SPI, CAN, I2C, Modbus, Profibus, BLE. Encrypted secure bootloader. Assembly startup.
- IoT ready. Low power, low memory optimised.
- Some of my experiences in embedded C code development have required the use of MISRA-C standard & Automotive Spice 2 compliant.
- I usually do version control with SVN and GIT.

Electronics Hardware Experience

Despite my main experience being firmware development, I do have an academic electronics background and multiple industrial experiences:
- 2017: On the strength of my experience, I have assisted my client in the development of multiple IoT PCBs.
- 2016: I needed a new challenge and have create an entire IoT prototype from scratch and by myself; Schematics & PCB layout. BOM, DFM. Sourcing. Prototyping SMT reflow. PMIC; Low power. Bluetooth Smart/BLE.
- Analog and digital design to create a high power, 3 phases electric motor speed control. (Schematics, PCB, BOM, prototype).
This involved IGBT, SMPS, ...
- Other boards with EMI, EMC and vibration constrain.
And following the standards for ATEX, IECEx, IEC 61508 Functional Safety.
- Target3001! Schematics, BOM & PCB design expert freelancer.
