I have a Master degree in Electronics in Space from Umeå
University of Technology where I studied in Kiruna with close
relation to Esrange. My thesis was to ensure the future of the
SPI Integral satellite simulator that is located in Toulouse.
Throughout my education, I participated in project courses where
various experiments were mounted on stratospheric balloons
(Esrange) where I mainly programmed micro controllers. I have
experience in both analog and digital electronics. In some
of the project courses, I acted as a project manager.
I am involved in an ESA project called ASIM, where I develop and
design a Data Processing Unit using an FPGA with embedded PowerPC
as a core. The DPU work include interface to various memories
(volatile and non-volatile), standard communication, ADC - DAC,
custom made interface, VHDL programming, data handling, drivers
During my education on the holidays, I worked at Esrange
PR&Info and helped out during preparation of stratospheric
balloon launches (both practical and scientific). I did my
bachelor thesis at Esrange investigating the possibility for them
using liquid/hybrid propellant.
