Hardware and PCB Design Engineer

Engineering - Telecom/Technology, Engineering - Mechanical/Electrical

Experienced (Non-Manager)

Responsibilities:
• Analog/Digital circuit design and simulation.
• Components selection and library creation.
• Schematics entry.
• PCB layout design.
• Pre/post layout signal integrity and crosstalk analysis
• Design for testability (DFT) and manufacturability (DFM).
• 3D models design to ensure mechanical compatibility.
• Gerber and BOM generation.
• Contacting PCB manufacturers and purchasing components.
• Preparing PCB assembly and testing procedures.
• Supervising manual PCB assembly/soldering.
• Board testing and troubleshooting.
• Project documentation.
Projects:
• Automatic Video Tracker
The system accepts an analog video signal from a camera and converts it into digital frames that are filtered and enhanced using an Altera FPGA. The filtered frames are then input to a TI DSP which calculates the coordinates of the object of interest using different tracking algorithms. The coordinates are then sent to a PC through RS232 and sent to a display. The coordinates are also converted to analog signals that are used to drive actuators. This system is composed of 3 PCBs; 8-layer high-speed main board, 4-layer power supply board and 4-layer back plane connecting both boards. This design required extensive signal integrity analysis using Mentor graphics Hyperlynx.

• CuSPARC V1 and V2 Development Boards
CuSPARC is the first IP embedded processor core designed in Egypt by engineers from Cairo University. Two revisions were fabricated. I supervised the successful design, manufacturing, assembly and testing of development boards for both revisions. Both systems are composed of a 4-layer PCB. My work was acknowledged in“Cairo University SPARC V2 (CUSPARC V2) processor”conference paper published in the International Microelectronics Conference held in Egypt in December 2016 (DOI: 10.1109/ICM.2016.7847875).

• Embedded DSP-based System
The system accepts 12 PWM signals and 3 analog signals from motion sensors and outputs 4 analog signals which are used to drive actuators. A DSP from TI is used to process the inputs after being converted to digital signals and generates digital outputs that are then converted to analog signals and conditioned to be able to drive the actuators. The system communicates with the host via an RS422 serial communication link. The system is composed of a 4-layer mixed-signal PCB.

• Integrated Monitoring System for Early Plant Disease Forecast
The data logging part of the system is based on an Atmel AVR microcontroller. It collects the measurements of nine environmental sensors including air temperature and humidity, soil temperature and volumetric water content, wind speed and direction, rain level, total solar radiation and leaf wetness. The analog measurements are interfaced to the integrated ADC through an ultra low noise analog signal conditioning circuit. The collected data are then sent wirelessly to a host for analysis. The system is solar powered and the battery is able to supply the system for two consecutive cloudy days. The system is composed of a double-layer mixed-signal PCB.

• Various Reverse Engineering Projects.
