Domain Specific Abstraction

Custom language, compiler and VM design, providing system independent platform for IoT development and deployment

Analytics and Visualization

Smart collection, forwarding, aggregating and analysis of IoT data, followed by impactful reporting and dashboarding

Bring-up and Manufacturing

Purpose-built firmware/software for board bring up, system validation, and manufacturing, not done as an afterthought

ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

High Density

We can engineer for low profile and high density to maximize use of space, balancing fab and assembly costs

3D Enclosure Design

PCB models integrated with the 3D enclosure to ensure fit and allow for additive (3D printing) and traditional manufacturing techniques

High Speed

Impedance control technologies to ensure performance of high-speed PCBs

Analog Simulation

Software based mathematical replication and modeling of electronic circuits and devices

Power Supply

Linear, High Speed switchers, low noise switchers, we customize based on the design constraints

PCB Design

RF, Audio, Video, Low Noise and other applications requiring custom PCB designs

3D PCB Modeling

Low cost realistic visualization, planning, and placement of all board elements

3D Printing

High quality in-house 3D printing to enable rapid design validation and short run production

FPGA and ASIC

Including RTL design, ASIC verification, synthesis & STA, physical design, DFT and validation

Hardening

We specialize in hardening electronics for military, medical, industrial, and IoT applications

MANUFACTURING

Rapid Prototyping

Quick turn fabrication of electronics, enclosures and additive models, rapid software concept development

EMI/RFI Immunity

We can design to minimize susceptibility to EMF and RFI noise and interference

Turnkey Volume Production

Automated, high-volume systems enabling shorter cycle times and more efficient production of components

Test Fixtures

We design, engineer, troubleshoot and maintain test fixtures, interfaces, and harnesses

High-Volume Design

We know how to design for high volume, so our customers avoid costly rework, scrap, repair, and recall

Testability Design

Testability features designed into hardware to enable thorough manufacturing testing and design validation

Accelerated Life Testing

Temperature, humidity, voltage, shock, vibration, environmental testing to validate the design and determine service life

RoHS Compliance

Design for avoiding hazardous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment
