Expert has spent the past 20 years in engineering of surface mount technology (SMT) and hybrid microelectronics. He has concentrated on automated assembly and design for manufacturability. He founded AMTI (The Advanced Manufacturing Technology Institute) to provide a core group with the engineering expertise to design, develop, prototype, and test products with SMT design for manufacturability strictly enforced.

AMTI's principal business involves developing new products from schematic through printed circuit board layout, prototype production, bench testing, assistance with regulatory approvals, and engineering documentation for a smooth transfer into volume manufacturing. They concentrate on use of SMT and fine-pitch technologies to solve challenging design problems. In all of these areas, AMTI uses their combined knowledge of design for manufacturability to develop products that can be built at reasonable costs and provide robust performance.

AMTI's staff has extensive experience in electronic circuit board assembly production, both in commercial and high-reliability military and aerospace venues. Expert serves as a manufacturing consultant and has a proven track record in finding ways to improve manufacturing yields and boost efficiencies in SMT and through-hole manufacturing operations.

AMTI has provided consulting assistance to both large and small corporations. They have improved soldering yields to world class levels for their clients. They concentrate on the problems associated with wave and IR reflow soldering of surface-mounted parts and solder screening and reflow of fine-pitched SMT.

AMTI's basic service is to design, layout, prototype, and test complex high-speed mixed analog and digital products.

Expert is knowledgeable of the use of HTML programming language as well as background processes such as CGI scripts, JAVA, and others to build WWW pages. Currently, he runs two personal web sites and serves as Web master for two other commercial WWW sites. Expert especially likes to work on WWW design where his knowledge of electronics manufacturing helps tell the client's story on the WWW.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Boston, Massachusetts - Worcester, Massachusetts - Springfield, Massachusetts - Lowell, Massachusetts - Cambridge, Massachusetts - Brockton, Massachusetts - New Bedford, Massachusetts - Hartford, Connecticut - Manchester, New Hampshire - Providence, Rhode Island
