Welcome to my Blog! I am Bert Simonovich, founder and president of Lamsim Enterprises Inc. I graduated in 1976 from Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada as an Electronic Engineering Technologist. I started my consulting business after working 32 years at Bell Northern Research/Nortel. Throughout my career, I have held a variety of hardware design engineering positions and pioneered several advanced technologies into products. Currently I offer innovative signal integrity and backplane solutions as a consultant.
From as far back as I can remember, I was always interested in how things worked. I would often take things apart just to see what was inside; -not always successful in putting them back together again though ;-o. I was always fascinated with electricity and electronics. When I was about 10 or 11, I was mystified with how telephones worked. After reading about Alexander Graham Bell in a booklet published by The Bell Telephone Company of Canada, I became inspired to buy a pair of old push to talk handsets from a local army surplus store. I experimented with them using a drycell battery and lamp cord wire. When I finally was able to get two-way communications, it seemed like magic. I knew right then what my career choice would be.
I have been fortunate throughout my career to have been a part of and contribute to some of the technology that enable the gadgets we enjoy today. I have met and worked with many smart and talented individuals who took the time to unselfishly share their knowledge and experience.
And now, after all this time, the passion I had as kid to learn and understand new things is still there. Except now, like cradling a fine glass of wine, I am able to slowly swirl it around, sip it and savor the taste. This blog is about sharing some of that passion. It will cover a range of topics from signal integrity, PCBs, backplane design, circuit modeling, simulation tools and other practical engineering solutions. I hope you find my posts interesting and get inspired to explore them further on your own.
Thanks for visiting. I invite you to constructively comment and share your own thoughts and experiences as well.
