For Industrial Fire Alarms he designed audio circuits for Advance Voice Generator (AVG) board, accelerating design time. Wrote assembly routines for ADPCM coding/decoding and DSP (Digital Signal Processing) based echo cancelling code for AVG. Developed class D audio amplifiers of 100 watts, providing more power at lower cost.

Designed patented micro-based precision timing module for pyrotechnics, first available, and 100 times more accurate than chemical fuses, causing shift in the industry. Visit www.MagicFire.com

Created micro-based touch switches, IR transmitters, button detect, LED drivers, and controls for industrial display products, developing custom products fitting customers needs. Designed system to "chase" or "wipe" long lines of LEDs, installing in different maps, showing flyways of birds, 400 to 700 LEDs per map. Visit www.WBInc.com
