My name is Nathan Zimmerman and I’m an electrical engineer that enjoys doing any and all things nerdy. Surprisingly, ever since 4th grade, I knew I wanted to be an electrical engineer and by the grace of God I am one now. When I was younger, I greatly enjoyed creating and making projects with legos and such. While one is never too old for legos, I know have the opportunity to work with much more interesting building blocks such as microprocessors, FGPAs, traveling electromagnetic waves, and mathematics! My dream is to learn ever more about the amazing world around us and to apply that knowledge in helpful ways.
I’ve had the privilege of working on electronics with some great companies like John Deere and Appareo Systems. Learning ever more and more about electronics is my favorite hobby/past time and I greatly enjoy sharing/teaching it as well. Have fun looking around my humble and probably outdated website and feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
To any whom may be interested in collaborating or hiring me for a given project, below are some of my skills.
My primary skill has been creating circuits/PCB assemblies from the inception ideas to overseeing production. Below are some tools, circuit typologies, and tests I am familiar with.
- Schematics/PCB Design Tool Experience: Altium, Mentor Graphics Xpedition, Mentor Pads, Eagle
- Circuit Design Experience: Precision analog, switch mode and LDO power supplies, high current drivers, motor drives, transient/ESD protection, radio transceivers, wave guides, antennas, buses.
- Circuit Test Experience: EMC compatibility, vibration, physical shock, ESD, load dump/transients.
Embedded Low Level / High Level Software Design:
Software is a fundamental cornerstone of all systems/products. Without it, most hardware cannot function. To get hardware and projects to do stuff, I have learned software both high level and low level. Below is info regarding my software experience.
