About our Staff
A Breadth of Experience ---  Which is Difficult to Find These Days!

EDA is an association of professionals with both full-time and part-time persons. Our professionals typically have more than ten years of relevant job experience and most have over fifteen years. Since 1986, EDA staff has been successfully creating products for both small start-ups and Fortune 500 companies. They have earned a reputation for technically innovative, reliable, and cost-effective product design. The manager and chief engineer of EDA  has an unusually wide range and depth of experience in the design of electronic products and systems. This means your product will have the technical and cost advantages that come with this experience.
  The following is representative of the background of some of the key staff:
  • Tom S.: (Chief Engineer) BSEE/ MSEE with High Honors from Univ. of Maryland (1968) with post-graduate work at Georgetown Univ., Univ. of Wisconsin, UCLA, and U.S.F. He has been an adjunct professor at U.S.F teaching digital signal processing. Prior to EDA he worked as a Senior Engineer or Director of Engineering for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, John Hopkins Univ. Applied Physics Laboratory, Honeywell Communications, Applied Medical Research Corp., J & J Critikon and Paradyne Corporation. Design responsibility has ranged from advanced satellite telemetry, range/range rate and command systems to aircraft security systems to medical monitoring systems. He holds over twenty patents and is listed in Strathmore's Who's Who.
  • Dr. J. Kie T.: (Electro-Medical Sensors Scientist ): Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve; MSEE Univ. of Kentucky; Prior to EDA, has had design responsibility at Critikon, Biometrics, Pacesetter, and other medical companies with design responsibility ranging from oximetry sensors (transcutaneous, pulse, fetal) to exercise computers. Holder of seven patents. Numerous publications ranging from oximetry to cardiac pathology.
  • George S..: (Software Engineer) Over fifteen years experience with PC based programming for embedded and hardware control applications. Experienced with embedded C compilers,   C++ , C# and related languages.
  • Patrick B.: (Mechanical Design Engineer) BSME graduate with over ten years design experience with electronic packaging and enclosures.
  • Damon J. .: (Sr. Industrial Designer) Over 20 years experience with medical and industrial product package design. Initial presentations are typically in Solid Works CAD renderings. .
  • Brad K. : (Electro-Mechanical Designer): EDA's designers are experienced with AutoCAD, CadSoft Eagle, Corel Draw, Alibre 3D,  etc. and each have over fifteen years experience in packaging design and related metal/ plastics design, and PWB layout. Complex mechanical parts are typically CAD modeled and then proto fabricated using Stereo Lithography Apparatus (SLA).
  • Ed E. (Sr. Lab Techncian): All support technicians have over ten years electronics experience and have at least a two year electronics degree. Ed  is also  experienced with PWB layout tools and C embedded firmware coding using the CCS compiler for PIC processors.

Associated Industrial Design and Service Companies:      

  • BlackHagen Design: an associated group of over five industrial designers with a wide range of product enclosure design experience tailored for classy looks and a full-range of human factors considerations. Solid Modeling (Solid Works 2000, Alias 9.5) and other CAD tools(AutoCAD 14.) are used for your renderings and package design drawings. The combination of EDA's electronics design, BlackHagen's enclosure design, and nearby  manufacturing are a powerful combination to create your world-class product!
  • Regulatory Compliance:   Virtually every product being brought to market must pass one or more regulatory compliance tests. Most of us are familiar with the U/L safety mark but things have gotten more involved. Now FCC, IEC, EU, RoHS compliance  and FDA typically get into your product planning - like it or not. EDA designs its product to meet all known applicable standards for your product but its engineering staff cannot keep up with the ever expanding detail involved in "nursing" your product through compliance testing. EDA may bring in one of its associate experts ( TechniReg ) as needed to assist in this inevitable part of your product design process.
