My name is Zack Goyetche. I am an electrical engineer and electronics enthusiast who loves to tinker and hack away at whatever catches my interest. I’ve created this website to serve as a platform where I can document and share some of my projects.
Much of what you will find here will involve some combination of embedded systems, analog signal conditioning, digital signal processing, control systems, and automated testing.
