Jeanne is an embedded systems developer who has worked primarily in the radio frequency industry and has experience with the entire software and firmware development cycle and hands-on expertise in electronics manufacturing. While most of her experience has been in embedded systems and automated test equipment, she's also interested in other types of software development and PCB layout work. She has worked remotely and has a distraction-free work environment, including a basic electronics lab.

Tunable Active Bandpass Filter

Equipment that eliminates interference in RF communications. It can be controlled via Ethernet, USB, or its built-in display and keypad.

I designed the microcontroller board and other digital circuitry, laid out some of the PCBs, and wrote the firmware. I also wrote a Python GUI, which can be used to control the device.
