Qualifications of Staff and Associates
Jim Pearce, President. Jim has BS (1973) and M.Eng. (1974) degrees
in electrical engineering from Cornell University, and over 35 years experience in
design and development of electronic components, spread spectrum, and RF communications systems.
He has in-depth knowledge of RF, digital, analog, signal processing, firmware, software, embedded
microprocessors, communications and measurement equipment design and development. Many of his
designs have been battery powered and hand held, necessitating use of low power design
techniques. He has strong skills in Wireless Data/Voice, IF, RF, Microwave, simulation/CAE/CAD,
signal processing, DSP, instrumentation, telecommunications, analog / digital
cellular hardware / system design and system test / integration. Jim has authored numerous papers
in technical journals and technical symposia and has received a number of prestigious design awards. Since October 2000, he has
served as Chief Technical Editor of Spread Spectrum Scene Online.
