I’ve been programming LabVIEW since I got my first CLD in 2008.   My interests in programming instruments and tools comes from my background in electronics components manufacturing and semiconductor tool (Etch) final test and customer inspections.

Programming Watlows and their ilk from their panels was always an adventure.  I recall programming a burn-in socket tester with a text based file.  Our supervisor lost the instructions, but we managed to figure out how to perform resistor and voltage testing, and set limits for pass and fail.

After a few years working with SQL and Oracle, and the configurator in the field of supply chain planning for system configurations, product structure and product modelling I took the leap into LabVIEW developing in 2007, achieving my CLD in 2008.

I provide LabVIEW services and project management for teams in technology automation.   Specifically in instrument and equipment automation for desktop controlled systems.   I have used DAQ, PXI, and VISA for my clients.
