He clearly knows what he is doing. You don't knock up something with an Altera FPGA unless you have a
major development lab at your disposal

This guy seem to have made a home hybrid lab and repairs. Could former professionals comment ?

How well I know. My last job in the hybrid business was at Teledyne
Microelectronics. Space Qual parts had reams of paperwork, x-rays,
PIND test,photographs, etc...
Tek, Keysight, and many other still , out of necessity, use hybrid
technology with custom parts, in the front ends, and other places, of
very high frequency instruments. But, commercial hybrid production
has, I think, largely been supplanted by ASIC, FPGA, and more modern,
more reliable, less expensive technology.
