A highly acclaimed independent design consultant, Dr. Johnson pioneered the development of many new technologies including Phonemail, the first integrated voice messaging system, Gigabit Ethernet, as chief technical editor for that standard, and many other high-speed computing and communications architectures. He is the Signal Integrity columnist for EDN magazine and lectures regularly at Oxford University and selected corporate sites worldwide.
Dr. Johnson offers world-class advice, drawing on 30 years of design experience, an extensive network of industry contacts, and a unique perspective made possible by his interactions with over 1000 digital engineers annually through his teaching activities , newsletters and technical correspondence.
If there's a new trend available, he probably already knows about it. If you want a revolutionary new system, he's the kind of guy that can dream one up. Consulting rates....
Many of Dr. Johnson’s consulting clients have been small, start-up companies with great ideas who are looking for technical expertise and validation. Dr. Johnson creates relationships with these organizations to help them through the very critical time of initial product development and feasibility. While he does not design products himself, in a strategic partnership arrangement, Dr. Johnson consults regularly with the engineering staff of the company. He can also provide technical information and opinions to outside investors. Pricing and equity arrangements are available upon request.
The most effective way to absorb Dr. Johnson's consulting advice is to identify one very bright, ambitious engineer, and have this person visit our site for a consultation session at least once, and perhaps later on a periodic basis (every 6 months). Dr. Johnson will then answer questions by phone or email, providing direction and guidance as needed.
Each time we set up a private seminar at your site, Dr. Johnson will pay a special visit for personal discussion. That is the traditional way engineers pass on their knowledge to a younger generation--one on one. It works. That's how he learned the art of high-speed engineering from his mentor, Dr. Martin Graham.
In the year 1630, Roger Bacon wrote that every profession "carries with it both privileges and duties," meaning that every man who earns a living from some profession owes to society the duty of improving that profession, either by contributing to it some advancement, or by teaching others how to do it.
Roger placed those words in the preface to his great contribution, the book, "Maxims of Common Law," which became the foundation of Western justice.
I enjoy the privilege of having designed products that improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people. I embrace the duty of helping others achieve the same success. I'll do all I can to make that possible for you.
