I am a experienced electronics engineer based in Bristol, UK, with almost half a decade of experience in the industry. I have worked for CERN, the European Space Agency (ESA), for start-ups, and for multinational aerospace and defence companies.
I excel at taking 'back of the envelope' ideas, through to designs, prototypes, and to mass production. I specialise in power electronics, from simulation to layout. I have also previously held the Certified LabVIEW Developer (CLD) certificate.
I have experience in the following:
Simulation & modelling - LTspice / SIMetrix / Simulink / MATLAB
PCB schematic & layout
Programming (LabVIEW, embedded C, python, PHP, and many others)
Hourly rate is currently discounted as I gain exposure.
£40/hr. I can offer between 10-20 hours per week.

I am reluctant to post this because I don't want to lose Max to any of you. Max is excellent. His approach to work is rare, no project is a problem and he will work evenings and weekends to get it done. He is clear, honest and delivers what he says when he says. In fact all deliverables have been ahead of expectation, rare! Technically very impressive, and we know. He wont be around for long, trust me.
Max was very helpful, attentive, and quick with the work we asked him to carry out. His work was professional, and to the point, we are very happy with his service
What I Do
My skills have grown over time from analogue hardware design, to digital control of switch mode converters, all the way through to power supply design and layout for particle accelerators. I am meticulous in my approach, including documentation and simulation, and no detail is too small. This lets me offer my customers a wide range of skills, for almost any project.
I can offer turn key solutions, revamp an old design to make it smaller/use the latest ICs, debug and test.
All work shown is done so with the express permission of the customer/company involved.
