Paul Record
Biography

Paul has been employed by Heriot-Watt University as a lecturer in digital and analogue electronics since 2000. Previous to this he was employed at St Andrews University researching the design and manufacture of satellite relay data loggers for sea mammals and long term, long range RFID tags. Paul has many years experience in analogue instrument and audio amplification and has designed and built many systems. He has also acted as a consultant to a wide range of companies, the most recent this year spending a month in the USA working for Texas Instruments. Paul has wide experience in analogue circuit design for instrumentation and has work on micro-scale magnetic devices which is one of his key research interests. He has experience of low power microprocessors and has designed antenna systems for mobile communication. He has developed several leading RF technologies for use in mobile RF devices and location and tracking systems. Paul has filed two patents in “synchronisation in a wireless communication system” and “Compact Beam steering antenna”
