Wayne Amacher has extensive experience in hardware design and in writing about it. He can take your marketing ideas; negotiate tradeoffs with management; then flesh out the architecture with respect to boards, components, power, cooling, layout, packaging, softare/firmware interfaces, and user interfaces. He can set up your microprocessor/DSP bus timing. The end result is a detailed design specification, approved by management, that your hardware and software engineers can design to.
Wayne is an excellent writer and has mastered almost all aspects of Microsoft Office.
Wayne’s skills include:
Hardware system architecture
Board design for embedded systems
High speed digital and analog design
Familiarity with many microprocessors and DSPs used in embedded designs (IBM, Freescale, Atmel, and others)
Familiarity with buses such as I2C, SPI, PCI, EIA-232, Ethernet, local and parallel processor buses, SCSI, and others
