1992 - 2000 Computer Systems Documentation

Consulting services for hardware/software design interfacing between real-time hardware DOS, Windows 3.11, 95, 98 and 2000 operating systems.

1998 - 2000  In 1998 replaced vxd with a Windows 2000/98 win32 driver model [wdm] mini-driver.  Reasons are: A wmd driver transfers data between rings 0 and 3 much faster than a vxd. A wdm driver interrupt latency is quite fast. Also a wdm diver is binary compatible between Windows 2000 and 98.

Visual C++ 6.0 is the primary language used with some inline assember.  

Visual C++ 6.0 is used both at ring 0 and 3.  In ring 3 Visual C++ 6.0 interface code is built into a dll.  The dll acts an intermediary between a Visual Basic 6.0 app and a ring 0 wdm.

Numega DriverWorks was used for the skeleton wdm code. As well, of course, both Microsoft 98 and 2000 ddks.

Numega SoftIce is used mostly to debug problems in NTKERN and VMM

Can implment NT 3.51 and 4.0 kernel mode drivers. But the wdm initiative, because of improved performance and simplicity, will likely cause NT kernel mode drivers to be replaced.

Internet web design and operation is required for software maintenance and enhancements. Currently operate four websites.

1997 - 1998 a win32 vxd running at ring 0 replaced a dll  running at ring 3 to improve interrupt latency for Windows 98 and 95. The 6.10 masm-coded dll  mostly used 32 bit instructions.  However, it used 16 bit segmented linkage since it was required to interface to Visual Basic 3.0.

Vireo VtoolsD was used to provide skeleton vxd code. Wrote both the ring 0 and 3 codes in a combination of MASM 6.13 and C.

1994 - 1997 an 8052 microcontroller was removed from planer mill hardware and the interface went directly from analog hardware bus boards in a PC.

Wrote the real-time [less than 1 ms response time] code as a masm 6.10 assembler interrupt handler and port i/o dll operating at ring 3 interfacing to a Visual Basic 3.0 application running on windows 3.11.

The 16 bit 3.11 dll worked with no changes under Windows 95.

More than ten of these systems are in use throughout the world.

1992 - 1994. Designed with an other engineer a  8052 microcontroller real-time hardware with a  Forth operating system  which interfaced to analog lumber planer mill hardware.

The 8052 microcontroller interfaced to a PC through a serial port. About twenty of these systems are in service throughout the world.

Interface languages were Microsoft assembler and Forth assembler between external hardware and PC through serial port, parallel port and isa bus.

Designed and built with a physicist consulting partner a low-noise a/d hardware system for magnetic detection of oil pipeline leaks. The hardware interfaced to a laptop PC.

1980 - 1992    Senior Member Technical Staff, Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM
Designed, built and programmed the Deployable Seismic Verification System data authenticator for the US/USSR Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. The design was based on an 80C32. The real-time device algorithm was implemented in hardware. The interface between the algorithm and external hardware was an 80C32 running a Forth operating system.

The data authenticator costs approximately $1500; it processes about 20K bytes per second, draws approximately 200 milliamperes, and occupies about 5-3/8 inches diameter by 10-1/2 inches of space.

Interfaced Cylink CY-1024 public key crypto chips to an 80C32.

Designed and built tamper proof containers for CTBT verification devices.

Designed and built TEMPEST mechanical and electrical devices.

Project leader for the Missile Secure Cryptographic Unit [MSCU] for the US small missile.

The MSCU used an 8085 processor.  It was programmed with another engineer partially in FORTH and FORTH assembler. The MSCU interfaced to a PC through two serial ports.

Broke electronic locks for the FBI.

Control Data Network Operating System consultant.

Taught Cray assembler language and two videotaped courses on how BASICs work.

1979 - 1980 Computer Systems Documentation
Consulted, wrote, sold, and maintained business and telecommunications software for Wang 2200 computers.

Consulted for Boeing Commercial Airplane Company. Co-authored the Boeing 767 software certification plan.

1966 - 1979 Computer Science and Psychology professor at Washington State University, Pullman, WA

1972 - 1973 Visiting Research Associate Professor of Computer Science, Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL

1965 - 1966 National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Navy Electronics Laboratory, San Diego, CA
Human factors and electrophysiology work

1963 - 1965  Project Director: U.S. Navy Training Research Laboratory, San Diego, CA
Human factors and computing work

1959 - 1963 Graduate research assistant Educational Reference, Computing Center, and Measurement and Research Center at Purdue University
Computerized the Purdue Public Opinion Poll first on a Remington Rand UNIVAC Solid State 80, then subsequently an IBM 1401 and IBM 7090.

Pallet boards of mark sense card data were transferred to magnetic tape on the 1401. Computations were performed on the 7090.

The 1401 was programmed in Autocoder. The 7090 in a combination of assembler and FORTRAN.

Computerized the Purdue freshman placement test.

Mark sense cards were previously processed by tab equipment.
