About Barry


Bio

I am a self-taught engineer having spent most of my life in electronics work. It is my career as well a foundation of most of my hobbies.

I have most experience working with power adapters, supplies, DC/DC converters, and such used in RAID and external storage systems. Have done a little work with them in solar charging products as well. My lifelong interest has been musical electronics.

I am a self-taught engineer having spent most of my life in electronics work. It is my career as well a foundation of most of my hobbies.

I have most experience working with power adapters, supplies, DC/DC converters, and such used in RAID and external storage systems. Have done a little work with them in solar charging products as well. My lifelong interest has been musical electronics. I wrote a book called Electronic Music Circuits back in 1982 that teaches electronics as well as shows how to make a modular music synthesizer. Several people decided upon an electronics career after reading that book. I prefer not to tutor like a teacher would but instead be a problem solver/debugger. Get your hands dirty and if you get stumped contact me. I was employed at Western Digital for 25 years and am now looking for another position in Orange County, CA. You might be working with a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, some dev kit and have trouble with the electronics side - I may be able to help. My programming skills are lacking so it is a firmware/software problem you probably would be better off going with someone else.
