David Alexander Straight is an engineer, consultant, contractor and manager.

David Alexander StraightI have a BSEE from California Polytechnic State University and an MSEE from Santa Clara University.

My specialty is electromagnetic passive circuits in the microwave range, but I also design PLLs as well as analog circuits. During the past few years I was the system architect and microwave designer for point-to-point microwave radio systems and managed a small R&D team.

I am primarily an analog design engineer, but have spent the last year augmenting my skill set to include some microprocessor design using C and assembly as well as working with databases and user interfaces (web programming).
