Dr. Hsiung is an associate professor of electrical engineering technology at ODU. Prior to his current position, he had worked for Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. in Sunnyvale, California, Seagate Technology, Inc., San Jose, California, and Lam Research Corp., Fremont, California. He also taught at Utah State University and California University of Pennsylvania. He has over 16 years teaching experiences in microprocessor/microcontroller related courses in post-secondary schools. He has also worked for Maxim Integrated Products Inc. on a smart battery controller project for 3 years. He was the firmware designer and application engineer for the first two generation microcontroller designs in the smart battery controller project. This microcontroller is also based on Harvard Architecture that is the same as the Microchip’s PIC microcontroller. Dr. Hsiung has designed different layers of firmware masks for microcontroller’s applications, testing, and communication protocols that were used in the smart battery project. He has also worked as a test engineer for Seagate Technology in the hard drive testing section that used the Motorola 68HC11 microcontroller as the main controlling device for various testing needs. He worked for Lam Research as a product engineering that involved the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) system for the high density IC processing machine. This job was responsible for the system manufacturing, sales, installation, and training. During Dr. Hsiung’s teaching career in higher education institutions, he has developed the Motorola 68HC11 training system (CETHC11EVB2) and simulator (CET11SIM) for microprocessor/micro-controller related courses usage and project implementation at Utah State University. A high pressure injection system for the food processing industry was one of the projects that used the 68HC11 training system for the control designs. Dr. Hsiung also developed the ODU PIC Programmer as a pilot study at ODU on microprocessor/microcontroller related courses for distance learning classes. This ODU PIC Programmer was successful and popular to the students not only in the distance learning environment but also on-campus. Currently, he is working on a NSF project to design and develop a PIC training system and a series of session courses for microcontroller related curricula that are applicable in active distance learning implementations.
