First, welcome on this personal Web site. I live in France, between Paris and Versailles (just talking about well-known places...), and I am since my early years addicted to innovative electronic designs. More specifically I am a kind of "minimalist design lover", trying to shrink everything in the minimal number of components. An endless game especially with micro-controllers ! 

After a long career in embedded software development and wireless telecommunications I am now a full time consultant, specialized in cost-optimized mixed signal designs, and manager of ALCIOM, startup specialized in innovative test instruments. 

Those web pages are my free section, sharing some of my designs and providing technical information's. If you are looking for consultancy services or for information's on ALCIOM's products then thanks to jump to my professional web site.

What could you find on this site ?

My goal is to present on this site as many of my projects as possible, either with technical details or with links to published articles or relevant information sources. 

I've also included :

Some pages on software's and products that could be useful for your own design. These are "IP licenced products".
A freeware area, with a couple of my electronic-oriented software's.
A summary of my previous publications.
Some interesting links (my own bookmark)

Any idea of anything else that I should add ? Just drop me a mail !
