We have extensive expertise in designing microcontroller applications using ARM, NXP, Microchip (PIC12,16,18 and 32 family) devices and have a board range of compilers including CCS (Microchip), Keil (NXP ARM) and GCC (Linux) etc.
Applications are coded in 'c' with critical parts in assembler and can run standalone or under an OS such as Linux or Greenhills. We write our own device level drivers to suit the hardware design. We are a MicroChip design partner.
We use digital simulation during the design of high speed products and FPGA's. This includes the generation of VHDL testbenches and the PCB's board level simulation of PCB traces with IBIS modules.
Analog design and simulation of high accuracy, switch mode PSU and RF (433MHz-2.4GHz) is performed using pSpice
We have a selection of schematic capture packages available to suit our customers needs - including CADSTAR, ORCAD and EASYPC.
We have designed many products over the years, from simple heater control units to cutting edge high definition video recorders (1080P @60FPS). We have long established contacts in PCB production houses (inc. China), plastic molders, machine shops, marketing companies etc. These are a small sample of system we have designed:
