WHAT PROJECTS OUR CURRENT ELECTRICAL TEAM ENJOYED
MOST IMPACTFUL PROJECTS
We put out a 3rd-world home solar lighting system that also charges small devices. This saves people from burning dirty fuels in their home, or hauling gasoline around to charge their phones. I'm also proud that we are helping design a device that teaches infants how to nurse, so they don't have to be intubated, which can cause life-long scars.
MOST CHALLENGING PROJECTS
I designed a motor driver and processor rigid-flex that folded up into a medical cranial screwdriver that looks like a Star Trek phasor. Or, I’d say an 8-layer PCB for a camera system complete with DSP, custom routed DDR, LVDS, WiFi module, and eMMC all in a 50mm square.
FAVORITE PROJECT AT ENGENIOUS
A pressure sensing cancer drug delivery catheter: the amount of complexity packed into such a small device compounded with the size of the sensor wire just blew my mind. Seeing the huge potential for saving lives was humbling.
MOST CHALLENGING PROJECTS
A temperature-controlled lithium-ion charger with a power path-managed pump motor drive. It had a user interface and I designed it with only discrete logic and no software which eliminated the need for software validation.
FAVORITE PROJECT AT ENGENIOUS
A tiny, wearable Bluetooth device that was no bigger than a stack of four dimes (including the battery). I’m still amazed we were able to get more than 100’ of range out of it, despite a microscopic antenna.

WHO IS ON OUR ELECTRICAL ENGINEER TEAM
Peter is an experienced electrical engineer with almost 2 decades designing embedded devices – medical devices and FPGA design. He guides our cross-functional product development team on focusing on output quality, electrical architecture, regulatory compliance, risk management, and navigating the more treacherous technical hurdles. His passion is following a requirements-driven design process to produce a quality product in just a few design iterations. A little extra time at the beginning of a project nailing down architecture and requirements minimizes churn!
Griffin has almost a decade of experience with electronics design and assembly, test and troubleshooting, and embedded software. His combination of Electronics Technology degree and Engineering Physics degree gives him a unique perspective on product design. His motto to never stop learning drives him to stay informed of technology, trends, and advancements not only in electrical engineering but also in related fields of physics and bioengineering. Griffin has designed PCB’s for consumer electronics that include digital signal processors and DDR memory, and medical devices that need rigid-flex PCBs capable of folding into a handheld device.
Mason has a degree in electrical engineering technology and almost a decade of experience in consumer products, infrastructure technology, and medical devices. He also has gnarly knowledge of arcade machines, which is a personal passion. He considers himself a lifelong enthusiast of technology and electronics, spending time in and out of work troubleshooting, soldering, and experimenting with electronics.
Cuong holds the role of electrical engineer with close to a decade of experience in consumer and medical device development. He specializes in analog & digital design with an emphasis on manufacturing quality. Cuong has taken part in medical device design from early concepts to finishing with regulatory tested mass production. He has a passion for improvement and sums up his professional skill development philosophy with the words of late martial artist Bruce Lee: “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
Chris helps R&D leaders create new medical devices and new high technology systems. With a background in electrical engineering, he has more than 2 decades of experience in medical devices. Chris co-founded Engenious Design in 2013 after working as VP of R&D for several organizations, including a startup, and also started a medical device company. Chris has worked with 12 of the top 20 med device firms, in addition to startups and mid-sized companies. Chris is adept at building high-performance teams with a sense of urgency and enjoys thinking outside the box.
