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 Württemberg. 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:
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.
