Richard Wallace graduated with a first class degree in Electronics. He worked on wireless communication at Ericsson where he spent time designing and developing the world's first generation of RF radios and basebands for Bluetooth. Richard also worked on Bluetooth applications and RF synthesizers for base stations at Infineon Technologies. Richard provides industrial training with focus on RF design, antennas, RF layout techniques, yield optimization, regulatory compliancy and wireless system designs. He is currently a Senior RF Application Engineer at Texas Instruments. Krister Andreasson is a retired engineer from Microdata Telecom and LPG Telecom where he developed filters and low noise amplifier products for base stations. Throughout most of his career he was involved in research and development in the RF/Microwave field which translated into course work and writing for industrial training in the field.
