Electronic technology is an emerging technology that began to develop in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Electronic technology has spread the fastest and most widely in the 20th century, becoming an important symbol of modern scientific and technological development. Widespread application of high technology has led to unprecedented development of social productivity and economy. Modern electronic technology plays an enormous role in various fields of defense, science, industry, medicine, communication and cultural life. It can be said that electronic technology is ubiquitous these days.
In this electronic age, electronics engineers naturally become the “dream makers” of the time, creating everything in the electronic world. A nationally recognized electronics engineer, Mr. AN Yan, co-founder and CTO of Shenzhen Valley Ventures Co., Ltd. has been involved in electronics design, structure design, software coding, integration testing and other aspects of the electronics technology field, possessing a wealth of industry experience and a unique perspective on the electronics technology industry. AN Yan has a deep understanding of many issues in the electronics technology industry, including unstable supply chain issues and technical limitations. In recent years, he has also been actively involved in the research and development of electronic technologies, striving to solve technical disadvantages. With his excellent theoretical foundation and extensive work experience, he has developed a number of technological achievements. Up to now, he has successfully applied for more than 70 patents and software works, including intelligent child education system based on speech and machine vision, general bi-directional digital signal electrical isolation device, and developing software for intelligent home monitoring system based on Micro vibration monitoring technology and software development for an object detection system based on a photoelectric array. These AN Yan technological achievements serve a wide range of social sectors and have been adopted by many companies for their innovation. These achievements have not only advanced the development of the electrical engineering industry, but also made the development of society more diversified, brought convenience to people in all walks of life, and accelerated the development of the times.
“Good technology is used for people” is also AN Yan’s R&D concept. He is constantly aware of the problems of industry and society, and his technical achievements focus on solving these problems. Take the development of Develop Software for Intelligent Home Monitoring System Based on Micro Vibration Monitoring Technology as an example. This software collects structural vibration information generated by human behavioral activities, analyzes and processes the signal to intelligently monitor people’s behavioral activities at home, and warns of abnormalities for timely response to unexpected situations. Meanwhile, this software can solve the privacy problem of indoor camera surveillance without affecting users’ lives, allowing users to use it with more confidence. Compared with traditional surveillance systems, this software invented by AN Yan has been recognized by large, well-known companies for its advances and practicability. It has been widely used in the development of new technologies and products, giving impetus to the development of the industry and improving people’s quality of life.
In addition, AN Yan’s work emphasizes the importance of site visits. As part of the R&D process of developing software for object detection systems based on photoelectric arrays, he visited the detection lines of more than a dozen companies and found that many systems were influenced by multiple factors such as environment, light, manufacturing techniques and noise. Its signal-to-noise ratio was generally low, and weak signals were difficult to detect or not effectively distinguished from noise, leading to slight misjudgments in object detection. In the development of software for a photoelectric array-based object detection system, he used a photoelectric array detector to access the signal processing circuit, making object detection more accurate, reducing the likelihood of object post-processing, and improving the company’s work efficiency. ZHAO Xinhua, director of the China Electronics Standardization Institute, called AN Yan an “electronics industry monitoring expert” because of this technological achievement. This technological achievement is of great importance in promoting the development of the industry.
AN Yan once said, “Scientific research is like an endless climb. I like the feeling of reaching the top, although it’s hard work, but it’s worth it.” As a high-tech industry, the electronics industry is seen as an industry of the future. The development of this industry, the expansion of the market and the great technological advancement will surely create a great demand for talent. AN Yan has always wanted to work closely with schools and research institutes to cultivate more professional talents and bring forth outstanding talents, to provide a talent pool for industry development and promote the sustainable growth of the industry. It is believed that by applying Mr. AN Yan’s research achievements to various industries, his perseverance and research spirit will definitely infect more outstanding talents to join the electronics industry and further contribute to the development of the industry.
