About "Paul Messick"

Paul has more than 40 years of engineering experience in scientific instrumentation, radar and RF design, analog and audio design, and microprocessor based solutions. He started Avermetrics in 2011 to find a better way to test electronic products, both day-to-day on the bench and in high-volume factory production. In his spare time he is a truly awful guitar player, and with enough practice hopes to become merely terrible.
