Innovation to
Production

System Architecture and Design The first step in any product or system design is to determine the requirements. We will sit down with you, the client, and review your product requirements. The goal is to design first, build second, rather than the other way around. The outcome of this work is a simple requirements and system architecture document. This can be as range from a simple one page outline of features for a consumer product to a several hundred page system specification for a complex Sensor to Server system.

Hardware Engineering Hardware is like software except you have to get it right the first time - Derek Smith
We have designed many electronic assemblies from coin cell sized wireless sensors to rack mounted motor drivers. Regardless of the size, each product requires careful thought and planning to ensure that the hardware will work correctly. Based on the requirements, we first start with Component Engineering, selecting the best set of components needed to accomplish the task. Next, we create a schematic diagram, and finally layout the PCB. At each step we work with you to ensure that we are meeting your needs.

Software Development We can provide software development services for embedded devices as well as full hosted server systems. We have many years of experience in software development and have the proper amount of paranoia for releasing software.

Transition to Manufacturing Young engineers often mistakenly believe that once your prototype is working then you are 90% done. Those of us who have been around know that a working prototype is just the start of a long process. We can take your product into manufacturing, including creating necessary documentation and test fixtures to ensure that every unit that ships is working correctly.

Sense and Control We have experience with a wide range of sensors and actuators, including measuring current, voltage, temperature, light, color, infrared temperature, respiration, arterial blood gas, touch, proximity, and many other parameters. Actuators we have used include sound, light (AC and DC), motion, vibration, motors, etc.

Wireless Protocols Selecting the right protocol for your wireless application requires taking into consideration power consumption, range, throughput, interoperability, and many other factors. We have used many wireless protocols including Zigbee, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wi-Fi, IEEE 802.15.4, and proprietary implementations too. We can help you select the best protocol for your application.
