Charles (Chas) Frick is a system applications engineer within the Aerospace and Defense Group in Greensboro, North Carolina. Prior to ADI, Chas received two Bachelor of Science degrees in robotics and electrical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2016. Since joining ADI in 2016, he has worked on all manner of internal and external customer projects touching areas of PCB design, embedded C code, MATLAB GUIs, Python test automation, motor control and more. Outside of work, Chas can most likely be found either working on his Jeep Wrangler JLR in the garage or out offroading (probably covered in mud) at Uwharrie National Forest with his wife and fur baby pitbull “Atlas.”

Session: Antennas to Bits: System Apps Does It All

The aerospace and defense industry is pushing for increased performance, decreased costs and quicker time to market, and companies are forced to do more with less resources. RADAR systems are no exception, with customers wanting to track more targets, improve sensitivity and range, all while they work with fewer specialized engineers. My focus as a systems applications engineer for Analog Devices is to document, prototype and create collateral to facilitate customer projects in this space so customers can overcome personal cuts to deliver next generation products. In this presentation, learn about cutting edge RADAR systems, life as a systems applications engineer and hear a few nuggets of career wisdom along the way.
