Test Engineer @ Clipsal Australia.
from 2004 to 2008
Develop test solutions for products developed by Clipsal RnD department, for both China and Australia. The first year and a half I spent in Australia, then relocated to China (Shanghai & Shenzhen) for two and a half years, assisting in transfers from a test/technical point.
The main hardware used were NI PXI chassis, 8 slot and 18 slot, which were used to test a variety of Clipsal C-Bus products.
Test Engineer @ IPTE Belgium
from October 2002 to 2003
I was employed by IPTE Belgium on a contract basis. IPTE develops, produces and installs high technology PCB test equipment for the electronics industry.
My main duties involved assisting other test engineers to develop test systems using Lab Windows CVI and TestStand. The hardware used was a RS PXI rack with a variety of PXI cards installed.
Test Engineer @ Sensormatic Ireland
from 1996 to 2002
Implementing test processes for new products, PCBA testing using bed of nails & system level test. This involved sourcing test equipment; setting up test stations, writing test procedures & provide training to component level. Built functional test fixtures for each PCB, some more complex than others.
The more complex fixtures would comprise of a PC with two to three National Instruments cards, a NI5102 scope, a LAB_PC+ DAQ card or a DMM plugged into the PCI slots. Other testers had a PXI system with an NI5112 (100MHz scope), NI4060(5.5 digit DMM), a matrix of 256 relays & some power relays installed, plus some special control board. Write C code using Lab Windows from NI to interrogate the PCB under test.
All the above was done by me with limited help from designee engineers from the US when some more clarification of the board operation was required.
