VP Sales
Greg began his career 40 years ago as a trainee at Texas Instruments.  After a10 year career with TI, he joined an independent design house as a designer, eventually moving into sales.  In 1985 his entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and he founded Circuit Design Consultants, the predecessor of Austin Circuit Design, Inc.  The key to ACDI’s success is Greg’s hands-on working style.  He ensures that each board is fine tuned to the highest degree of accuracy and manufacturability, to achieve the lowest possible cost per unit.  He is the Founding President of The Austin Heart of Texas Chapter of the IPC Designer’s Council, currently serving as Treasurer.

Senior Designer 
Mike has been working with Austin Circuit Design for over a decade.  Besides being an excellent layout resource, he  is our parts librarian.  Mike also has many years' hands-on experience as a technician, having proved himself valuable in helping customers review and improve their products on site.  Mike is a  proud father and a grandfather and active participant in the AHOT Designer's Council.  We were pleased to name him Most Valuable Partner at our last formal banquet in 2013.
ACDI is supplemented by talented designers, technical support personnel, mechanical and electrical engineers that are brought to bear as needed.  Chief among these are Mike Shrader, Chuck Michie, Jerry Hopp, and Charles DeLoach.  Long standing relationships with these talented individuals allow us to increase our bandwidth when necessary, without passing excess overhead on to our customers. 

In 1985 Circuit Design Consultants, the predecessor of ACDI, was founded by Greg Ochoa.  Ochoa identified a niche that was unfulfilled by current offerings in the pcb industry.  His vision was to offer a turnkey service for product development.  Starting with the schematic, a seamless process returns a handful of prototype boards to the customer.  This is true one-stop shopping.  Ochoa created an organization that serves as the hub for a variety of satellite services: engineering, bare board fabrication, and assembly.  This has allowed the company to be eminently flexible, expanding or contracting as needed to respond to both the market and the requirements of the customer.  No large overhead costs are passed on to the customer.  Service is to the highest standard.  The company relocated from Dallas to central Texas in 1990, at the very beginning of Austin's technology boom.  The business plan that was developed in 1989 concluded that this move would be beneficial to the company due to the increasing role of technology in the Austin-San Antonio marketplace.   Events proved this assumption correct. 

Greg and his wife Anne settled in Lago Vista, a picturesque city on the North Shore of Lake Travis.  As Greg had begun his career at the local Texas Instruments campus, it was not long before he was reestablished as a leader in the local PCB industry. In 1993 Greg founded and became the first President of the Austin Heart of Texas "AHOT" Chapter of the IPC Designer's Council.  Meanwhile Circuit Design Consultants grew, and expanded its operations to offer production. 

In November of 2002, the sole-proprietorship Circuit Design Consultants incorporated and became Austin Circuit Design, Inc.  Last year, ACDI celebrated a quarter of a century supplying quality workmanship and on-time delivery to the printed circuit board industry.

Design layout and parts procurement are performed at company headquarters, while fabrication and assembly remain the responsibility of our partners in industry. Recent projects the company has completed include boards for telecommunications, test equipment, seismic measurement,  medical diagnostics, security systems, and rescue equipment.
