“At the age of about 10 I discovered a book in our school library entitled, Homer Price. Homer Price was an adventurous boy who loved building radios, computers, and other unique gadgets. Homer Price captured my imagination and quickly became my favorite book. There was something magical about someone who could create useful devices from ordinary electronic components.
This sparked a love for electronics and a desire to understand how they worked and what I could build with them. This interest continued to grow, and eventually I received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. I then went to work at Intel designing cutting-edge microprocessors. Later I worked at Samsung where I helped develop the world’s fastest computer memory chips, and at Broadcom I worked on a team that made the highest performance core logic chipsets for servers that had ever been made.
Then one day I was installing shelves in a closet at my home. I needed to find the studs hidden in the wall so I bought the best stud detector I could find. I scanned the wall for the studs. Then I scanned again and again. At the completion of each scan I marked the location where the stud finder indicated the position of a stud. I quickly noticed that I had marked the wall in numerous locations, and that each mark was in a different place. In disbelief I thought ‘there must be a better way,’ and the development of the ProSensor 710 had begun.“
