Hey there. I’m Jeff Keyzer, aka mightyohm.

A few things about me:

  • I’m an Electrical Engineer.  I studied Circuits and Systems at the University of California, San Diego (MSEE ’02).
  • I develop consumer electronics hardware for Valve, a well-known video game company.
  • I’ve lived and worked in some amazing and beautiful places: San Diego, California, the San Francisco Bay Area / Silicon Valley (both north and south of the bridge), Austin, Texas, and now Seattle.
  • I have over eight years experience in radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) design.  Most of my experience is in designing power amplifier chips and antenna switches for wireless LAN and cellular devices.
  • In 2008, I started doing freelance design work in embedded systems development, PCB design, and electronics prototyping.  (The really fun stuff!)
  • I’m an occasional guest-host of The Amp Hour, “an off-the-cuff radio show and podcast for electronics enthusiasts and professionals.”
  • Along with Mitch Altman and Andie Nordgren, I helped write a free comic book called Soldering is Easy that has been translated into over a dozen other languages and used to teach people around the world how to solder.

I blog primarily about electronics projects that I’m working on.  Expect to see posts about microcontrollers (mostly PIC and AVR), Arduino, embedded Linux, circuits, DIY projects, and other related stuff.  Most of the projects featured here were born in my lab, but occasionally I will feature projects from friends of mine as well.

I also sell a few things that I designed, including a very popular Open Source Geiger Counter kit.

Aside from my obsession with electronics, I enjoy working on old cars, machining, welding, fabricating, and generally building stuff.
