Rescued Customer from Failing Giabit Ethernet Fiber Optic Link Design

Rescued customer and prevented its loss of a major government contract by quickly assessing the defects in the implementation of its Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-X) fiber optic link and proposing a start-from-scratch implementation of its Data Capture System. Participated in daily stand up meetings while also managing junior engineer, coding new VHDL, debugging multiple PCBs with Virtex-6 LX240T devices on each, interfacing with software development, and supporting government site testing of new hardware, firmware and software. Customer met its milestone and successfully collected necessary data using the new design.
