Our Expertise

We are experts at extracting engineering requirements from your marketing specifications. Our "Rev-Zero" process reduces risks and improves time to market. We focus on protecting your IP with onshore development and manufacturing, and cyber-hardening of IoT and IIoT devices.

Many of our clients call us the “Rev-Zero” company, reflecting our ability to take a project from concept, through design, to production, with no spins. Precise requirements analysis and attention to detail are key to our Rev-Zero deliveries.
