As the Director of Electronics Engineering at the Rowland Institute, Win oversees a fully appointed electronics engineering laboratory with a dedicated staff and three instrumentation benches (including one for use by other Institute members), an extensive suite of electronic test and measurement instrumentation, and a substantial inventory of electronic parts, e.g., including about 850 different types of ICs. The Electronics Engineering Lab designs and fabricates most of the critical electronic instrumentation found throughout the Institute.
