Provided embedded firmware product development, testing, documentation, support and web / jQuery /
electronic security access systems.
As an on-site contractor and integral part of the engineering team, helped define and then developed
firmware for standalone electronic access control device in C on the Microchip PIC24 MCU. As part of
the definition, implemented a new simpler event driven architecture. Compared to previous devices in
the product family, this product was delivered in 50% less time and had 80% less defects during its
first 6 months of deployment. This high quality embedded firmware was delivered ahead of schedule,
under budget, with greater flexibility, and functionality than the evolving specifications had defined.
Created noninvasive, real time, production release, event injection and status monitoring test tool
on top of new product event driven executive code. Tool used unused UART on MCU to interface with
any serial terminal to allow state changes and event execution which provided for more accurate
feedback than a traditional In-Circuit debugger (ICD). Results of enhanced development testing
provided for higher quality code and the faster acceptance by System Test Department of any access
control product tested. This new event driven architecture was adopted as the basis for the next
Developed VC++ MS Windows application that interfaced between serial ports ( connected to access
control devices with evolving event queue mechanism ) and MySQL ip connected database. Designed
database to hold tests for various locks and the status results for analysis. Created web / jQuery
execution, and result display.
Developed an innovative web application that cross compiled and executed developer created PIC24 C
and JSON based Ajax at the client browser with PHP, MYSQL, and developer provided embedded source
application on a Linux Apache web server to provide a near real time, intuitive, and interactive
test or training environment.
