Daniel O'Sullivan B.E.
Founder and Chief Engineer of Megasoft
After graduating from Christ Church Grammar School second in the
state with a University Exhibition, Daniel attended the University
of Western Australia on a Commonwealth Scholarship and graduated
with a Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics) degree. He has since
taken postgraduate courses in VLSI Silicon Chip Design and AS3563
Quality Assurance. Daniel has several patents to his credit in
the fields of digital audio recording and silicon chip design.
Prior to founding Megasoft Pty Ltd, Daniel worked in the mining
industry (in W.A. and the N.T.) for which he designed, manufactured

2000, before the IBM PC dominated the market. He was on the Computer
Science Curriculum Committee of Darwin Community College, preparinging
it to transition to a University.
Daniel's experience for many clients around
Australia ranges across most fields of electronics and computers,
involving R&D, design,
manufacturing, programming and troubleshooting, hardware and
software, high technology and industrial, with technologies
including mainframe computers, minicomputers, microcomputers,
PLCs, DSPs, PLDs, FPGAs, audio, video, telecommunications,
encryption/decryption, VLSI silicon chip design and real
time multitasking systems software. Multitrack digital recording
equipment designed by Daniel has been installed in prestigious
locations around the world, including the UK High Court in
London and the Californian Superior Courts. Daniel is currently
implementing a multiprocessor supercomputer silicon chip
and a state of the art digital audio mixer/recorder.
David Brooks M.E.Sc.
Senior Hardware Engineer at Megasoft Pty
David graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Electronic Engineering)
from University College of North Wales, Bangor. David later received
a Master of Engineering Science degree by thesis from the University
of Western Australia for research into RF Identification systems.
This work resulted in the granting of 9 Australian patents.
Before the IBM PC became available, David
designed two computers. One was built from basic logic as a
home-built project, the other using a Z80 microprocessor was
marketed as the "Index 2000".
His work in the digital electronics industry has focussed on
digital design for embedded systems. This covers both hardware
(including FPGA/ASIC) and embedded software, at the low (close
to hardware) levels. He recently designed a major subsystem for
an ATM switch chip, supporting an OC48 data stream (2.4Gb/s).

Mark Kingham M.Sc
Software Programmer at Megasoft Pty Ltd.
Mark graduated with a Bachelor of Science
(Information Science) degree and then a Master of Science (Computer
Science) degree from Edith Cowan University. Mark's research
in Artificial Intelligence led to a number of papers and articles
being published in Journals throughout the world. Mark's thesis, "An Adaptive Hierarchical
Fuzzy Logic System for Modeling and Prediction of Financial Systems",
looked at a novel approach to reducing the Fuzzy Knowledge Base
size using a hierarchical system where the rules were learnt
by the use or genetic algorithms.
Mark has worked as a programmer for Australian and International
companies on a number of projects in the mining, transport, telemetry
and engineering areas, including trunking radio base stations,
mobiles and PABX systems. He has skills with DCOM, COM, ActiveX,
DLL's, ODBC, SQL and communications protocols. He has implemented
systems with Microsoft Windows, Windows CE, Pocket PC 2003 and
other user interfaces and has written a number of programs involving
database connectivity using ODBC, SQL and other database protocols.
Mark has implemented on OPC server (Ole for Process Control) for
a client's proprietary hardware using the Iconics toolkit. This
has used DA (Data Access) and HDA (Historical Data Access), allowing
computers on a network or internet to access the data on the hardware
in a standard form.
