Embedded Hardware Design and Development
Not all clients’ requirements are limited to purely embedded software development. Many have intelligent software products and devices; therefore, we also provide embedded hardware design and development services for products needing embedded computers or microcontrollers. This service can be delivered as a complete hardware design and development package or can be delivered as separate elements, see below:
Because of the diverse nature of our clients’ businesses, the projects we undertake are based around embedded processing in a wide range of environments and industries. This allows us to transfer proven solutions from one industry sector to influence solutions in another. Many of our clients have commended this approach as an innovative means of knowledge transfer.
Typical environments include:
- Rugged and extended environmental operating conditions
- Safety critical applications
- Processors and DSPs
- Video input interfaces (cameras etc)
- Sensor and other analogue interfacing
All hardware design work is undertaken within our quality and standards processes. This ensures both the integrity of the design and provides our clients with the knowledge that their solution has quality built in. In the typical environments quoted above, this is a critical feature of embedded hardware design.
A wide range of expertise is available from designing for low-cost high volume manufacturing, through to low volume high value products. This allows us to present solutions to a variety of industry requirements.
All work is designed for manufacturing with appropriate test capabilities built in. This allows our clients to feel confident that performance of the solution they have will be capable of being regularly monitored.
Prototyping and low volume manufacturing for clients can also be managed. This type of solution requires working very closely with our clients and has resulted in the level of quality that can be expected from truly bespoke equipment.
