Advanced Bionics is a privately held corporation with sales in the 30+M$ range. Advanced Bionics has been producing Cochlear implants, which provide direct electrical stimulation of the hearing neurons, since 1994. Our product allows the deaf to hear. Over 30,000 implant patients hear today in a growing market.

I head up a small Hardware Design Group responsible for all electronic and mechanical hardware other than the electrode itself. Custom ASIC's, plastics design, silicon micropackaging, DSP, RF and Audio electronic design are specialties of this group.
