A newsletter about the engineering behind communication technology.

Why you should subscribe?

Each weekly article will take less than 10 minutes to read and provide value by:

  1. Showing you the tricks behind the magic of radio communication

  2. Saving you time by providing a collection of learning resources

  3. Leveling up your knowledge a little bit every week

This newsletter will help advance your career, keep you motivated about engineering and make you appreciate how awesome modern technology is.

Occasionally, I write about productivity, career and tips that I found useful.

Who is this for?

My content is intended to be educational in nature and directed towards students, professionals or enthusiasts who want to understand the science and engineering behind communication technology.

Who am I?

My name is Vikram Sekar. I currently work as a Senior Staff Device Modeling Engineer in Qualcomm. I have spent over 12 years working on and supporting all aspects of electronics modeling, design, simulation, and packaging, in a variety of companies ranging from small to large. I have a Ph. D in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University.

I’d love if you do connect with me on X, LinkedIn, or reply to the subscriber email describing what you would like to see from this newsletter.

Why the newsletter?

With all the massive layoffs in tech, it occurred to me that if I were next, I would be dreadfully unprepared to interview.

I decided that I would study a little bit everyday to stay prepared. My primary resources were textbooks (too terse), my school notes (poorly maintained) or YouTube videos (good option, but mostly academic and takes too long). I started putting together a few notes and soon realized that they would be helpful to a lot more people than just myself.

If I did it right, I could provide bite-sized educational content that is not overly academic, so that other engineers like myself can use for it for continuous learning.

Plus, a lot of radio communication is just black magic. I hope that by sharing my learnings, I can take some of the mystery out of how stuff works and provide insight into why it’s so amazing.

Newsletters are so effective in education these days, and I’ve learnt so much from the ones I subscribe to. So, I decided to write one.
