Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has devoted a significant portion of his career to the development of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) devices, equipment, and processes. These include: placement, cleaning, solder reflow equipment, components, component design, component packaging for automatic placement, and processing of the circuit boards. He has had extensive experience in the "Make or Buy" decision of his clients. Expert is expert in the area of passive Surface Mount Components (SMCs), particularly, but not restricted to, monolithic ceramic capacitors. His work with implantable medical device failure due to SMT or SMC's is extensive, and includes reporting to the FDA.

While Expert's experience remains in surface mount technology, he has become intimate with new sources of high technology lighting components, many of which demand SMT in order to take advantage of lower size-power profiles, as well as higher unit production volumes. This technology, brought about by the need to change from incandescent and fluorescent to more exotic light-generating (but energy-conserving and failure-proof) light sources, include Light Emitting Diodes (LED), electroluminescence (or flat panel lighting), photophosphorescence, fiber optics (light piping), and others. Applications in which Expert has been intimate are signage, displays, lighting and emergency lighting systems and the associated energy reduction, manufacturing cost savings, reduction of end-user prices and of maintenance costs over the product life.

Expert conducts surveys of industrial and other facilities for replacement of HVAC, motor control, lighting, etc. with systems requiring lower energy cost and maintenance.

While involved with various high technology categories such as surface mount technology, components, equipment and processes, and new lighting devices, much of Expert's career has been spent in the area of transition from the old technology to the new. Changing direction is often difficult for everyone associated with it: the company, its sales forces, inside personnel, channels of distribution, and of course, the customer. Much of Expert's consultative activity has been turnkey: researching the technology to be utilized, developing the product, testing it, manufacturing the product, retraining inside and outside sales and marketing, distribution and finally, getting the product to market. Expert is a turn-around and start-up specialist.
