Electronic Design and Construction
One thing I am particularly good at is the design and construction of unique electronic and mechanical systems. Being an eternal electronics experimenter I have designed and built everything from a crystal radio to a digital computer. I have great practical experience and a good sense for what it takes to design and build devices to satisfy complex research tasks.
Best of all, the things I build WORK!
Printed Circuit Board Fabrication.
For sensitive electronics and when large numbers of identical circuits
are required I create printed circuit boards.
This includes the graphic lay out, photo exposure, etching, drilling and
final parts assembly. For simple designs and small numbers I will create and manufacture the board myself. For complex designs and large numbers I use PCB Layout Software and have the boards commercially produced.
Electronic Circuits I've designed and built include:
Bat 'In Flight' Direction Detectors
Rat 'Tail Flick' Digital Measurement
Rat 'Lick' Detectors
Human Skin Conductance Amplifier
Heart Rate Monitor
Human Response Consoles
Bio Feedback Monitor
Push Button Boxes
Signal Conditioning Circuitry
Shock Generators for both Humans and Animals
Computer Analog and Digital Interfaces
Computer to Electromechanical Interfaces
Audio Power and Pre Amplifiers
Audio Tone Generators
Optical Position Detectors
Battery Charging Circuits
Power Conditioning Circuits
Electronic Test Instruments
