About

My main passion is analog, especially power electronics & EMC – I can talk about this for days or weeks. Analog is where I started about 20 yrs ago as an apprentice fixing TV’s/radios and I’m still passionate about that.

What do I do for my living? I’m a FAE (Field Application Engineer) at Avnet Silica based in Austria and responsible for Austria, Switzerland, Bavaria and Baden W├╝rttemberg. In this function I support customers with all things power and high power electronics. That means from your average buck converter up to your very fancy SiC MOSFET traction inverter. I did study at the JKU in Linz and finally finished my studies at the University of Applied Science in Wels in Electrical Engineering with a B.Sc.

Besides the analogue part of engineering I’m also able to do some digital stuff, but thats mainly for controlling power supplies , digital filters and doing software based numeric calculations.

Here is a list of programming languages I’m able to do:

  • C
  • C#/C++
  • Assembly
  • Matlab/Scilab
  • VHDL
  • Java
  • Python

Languages I’m able to speak

  • German (fluent but still learning)
  • English (fluent)
  • French (un petit peu – but improving)

The layout tool I use most is Kicad.

If you want to say hi, you have some question or need support regarding any power supply related topic just feel free to contact me via twitter or linkedin. I would love to hear from you!
