Hi, all! My name is Nathan Wiebe. I'm a UofS EP/Comp.Sci. grad from 2004. I work at a wind energy manuacturer in Saskatoon designing electrical hardware/firmware/software for power inverters, as well as other contract designs.
I love working on hobby designs, as well as commercially-orientated designs, but I find myself equally fascinated with teaching and sharing ideas with others. I am very excited about the prospect of working on group designs that combine our various skills. I know a number of members on the list either directly or by reputation, and I think we will have no problem putting Saskatoon's own Makerspace on the map!
My interests center around:
-power and control system hardware, PCB layout
-real-time operating system and device driver design, mostly at the 8/16/32 bit MCU/DSP level
-software, often the stuff that interacts with hardware, but also GUI, database, encryption and networking
-documenting a project before moving on to the next one
I'm looking forward to meeting more of you in person next Tuesday. (Or am I mistaken to assume it's an open meeting?)
