Michael Anton's Home on the Web

This site was started as a place where I could share some of the projects that I have been working on. The Internet community has given me much throughout the years, so it is time that I give something back. Hopefully, you will find some of what is presented here to be useful.

I currently reside in Alberta, Canada, where I work as a self employed consultant, specializing in hardware, firmware, and software development. I have been experimenting with electronics since I was a young child, and have been developing products professionally in the industrial instrumentation field since 1986.

Here are some of the companies that I am presently working for, or have worked for in the past:

Caproco Ltd.
Concepts To Market (CTM)
Enspire Electronics
Laser Light Communications
SFT Telematics (previously known as Safefreight Technology)
Tyler Research Corporation
Western Instruments
