About me and this blog

Oldie guitar and me

A very old guitar that I tend to modify every 6 months

My name is Eduardo Viramontes. I’m an electronics engineer with over 7 years experience in embedded systems development (specially software and testing). I love music and taking stuff apart, I also love biking and try to go to work on my bicycle every day because I hate traffic and contamination (I do own a car though, it’s mostly dusty and uncool, but I do keep it well tuned).

I currently work for Freescale Semiconductor at the Guadalajara offices in México (here: Freescale Mexico Offices). I do systems and applications engineering for 8 and 32-bit products mainly for the industrial and commercial market segments (note: good software and hardware should be used in any market, so ignore that last comment). I am specially fond of motor control applications because control is cool and manly and complicated, and I also work with touch sensing applications (that’s my sensitive side). I’ve published some application notes on subjects like timers, USB, motor control, touch sensing and memory paging and I also do technical trainings from time to time.

Though I work for Freescale Semiconductor, the Embedded Stories blog is my own and so are all the opinions expressed within it. I like opinions so you should leave some, as long as they are also your own and you don’t insult anyone in the process. I will never release confidential information from anyone, either Freescale or customers. I will also never release confidential information about myself, so quit asking me at what age I flashed my first MCU, you dirty dirty stalkers!

You should also know that there are tiny animals living around my cubicle, do not disturb them or feed them chocolate, please.
