Synapse | Embedded Software Co-op January 2019 - June 2019
Synapse is a mid-size, boutique Product Development firm located in San Francisco.
During my time there, I wrote and debugged (primarily) manufacturing test software in a multithreaded enviroment for a leading San Francisco startup working on a micromobility device (C). I also designed software to test the reliability of a high speed FLIR Oryx 10GigE camera. The tests I then conducted informed the camera choice for a company using it for machine learning based sports analysis (C++, Python). I also used Raspberry Pi's to sniff, record, and plot data from a UART port for a "smart pet device", and to signify the availability of meeting rooms via LEDs outside the doors (Python, AWS Lambda). One of the last projects I worked on involved creating scripts to automate data analysis and performing electrical QA testing for a wearable for art installations (Bash).Synapse was the best co-op I had due to the incredible culture, management, support, and breadth of work to do (not to mention working as a consultant for some of the worlds leading companies!).
