Embedded System Design
Microprocessors and microcontrollers such as MicroChip PIC, 8051, Atmel, TI, ARM, Freescale 68K and Coldfire. Others may be used upon request. Software is normally written in C, C++, C#, Java, and Assembly. Embedded and Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) are often used, including Micrium uC/OS, FreeRTOS, Linux, and Android. Our source code is always well organized, documented, and version controlled.
Electronic hardware design experience includes: Industrial Controls, Battery Charging and Monitoring, Switch-mode Power Supplies, Motion Control, 3-Phase Brushless Motor Drives, HVAC, Wireless Communications, NFC, RFID, Automated Test Fixtures, Audio Low noise Circiutry, Electro-optics, Near Infrared (NIR) Spectrometers, Medical Devices, Charging racks, Chocolate Tempering, Deer Deterents, Industrial Door locks, HMI Panels, Intrinsically Safe products, Solar Panel sun tracking, High DC Current Metering, Boiler Controls, Oil Burner Controls, Barber Shop Booster Seat, Wireless Networked Smoke Detectors, Cell phone signal monitor, Air Compressor Controller, Vending Machine Controls, and many more.
Solidworks design of enclosures, mechanisms, material selection, and other mechanical aspects needed to provide a complete turnkey product. Strong in most prototype, low and high volume fabrication and production tooling processes, including molding, finishing, and coatings.
PCB layout using Altium, Allegro, Mentor, PADS, PCAD, Protel, and OrCAD. Every design checked by QC. High speed digital Backplanes, Power Distribution, Regulatory compliance: FCC, UL, IES, CE. Blind/Buried Vias.
