What we do

As part of our hardware design services we provide embedded product design and development for a wide range of embedded systems, from small-scale embedded components based on a single 8- or 16-bit microcontroller to sophisticated embedded systems with increased security requirements, 64-bit processors, and a rich collection of peripherals and I/O capabilities. Our engineers are certified hardware experts who keep up to speed with the latest advances in the field of electronic design services.


What's included?

Our embedded hardware design services include simple and complex designs from concept to production. We build embedded systems for modern devices, both consumer and industrial. Telecom, consumer electronics, medicine, education – see the range of services we provide to implement embedded hardware for these application areas:

PCB design & layout

Our electronic designers take your product specifications through to architecture design, schematics, printed circuit board layout and all the way to organizing manufacturing and assembly. We use computer-aided design (CAD) software including professional industrial design tools such as Altium Designer, Cadence Allegro, Eagle Cad, OrCad and KiCad. We guarantee compliance with international quality standards.

FPGA design

We implement high-performance systems using two types of digital logic chips: Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) for high gate count designs, and Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLD) for simpler logic applications with low gate count designs. We use IP cores to save time but can design specific building blocks within FPGA logic designs from scratch.

Prototyping and assembly

After the embedded board design and manufacturing, we assemble PCBA to make prototypes. We have all required equipment in-house to solder electronic components to a PCB. This is needed for testing and verification of the product. If we find any fault in the prototype, we rework it. Two or three iterations are usually enough to reveal most of the errors.

Testing, validation, and certification

We perform functional verification tests, product safety tests and environmental tests on the prototype. After we test the prototype it needs to be certified with the UL safety standards that include solder limits, maximum operating temperature, and other requirements. We also ensure the hardware is backed up by ecology compliance (RoHS), and some country-specific and device-specific certifications.

Preparing for manufacturing

Even though our electronic development service does not include manufacturing of the devices we create, we connect you with companies and people who do, while providing all necessary design documents needed to manufacture hardware: assembly drawings, PCB production files, Gerber files, bill of materials (BOM) or product structure, 3D models, and testing instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read the information below to better understand the process of embedded hardware design and development.

I want to test my idea. How can we do this?

If you prefer to test the idea on a prototype and only then get down to creating a custom hardware solution, we can help. We create prototypes using DevKit devices so you can get the proof of concept.

How can I speed up the process of embedded system development?

To make the process twice as fast, we can build hardware and software simultaneously. This will involve the use of Development Kits for programming modules. As a result, you will get a prototype of your embedded system and can evaluate technical risks that might come up when creating a fully-fledged custom solution.

What does the process of embedded hardware development look like?

We start with defining the requirements – both functional and non-functional – choosing hardware components, and designing the system architecture. After that we perform the following processes:

  • Schematic design
  • PCB layout
  • Generation of files for PCB manufacturers
  • Prototype PCB assembly
  • Hardware testing
  • Debugging
  • Certification
  • Preparing for manufacturing

What are the skills of your hardware engineers?

Our hardware development teams possess skills in a wide range of disciplines including radio electronics, physics, and circuitry. We're experts in the design and assembly of complex electronic devices and have certified specialists on our hardware development team.

What types of microprocessors and microcontrollers do you use?

We work with microprocessors and microcontrollers provided by the following vendors:

  • Atmel (Microchip Technology)
  • Nordic Semiconductor
  • STMicroelectronics
  • Microchip Technology
  • Silicon Labs
  • Espressif Systems
  • NXP Semiconductors
  • Cypress Semiconductor
  • Freescale Semiconductor (NXP Semiconductors)
  • Renesas Electronics
  • Texas Instruments
  • Infineon
  • MediaTek
  • Allwinner Technology

What CAD software do you use?

We use a variety of tools for PCB design and layout including Altium Designer, Eagle Cad, Cadence Allegro, OrCad, KiCad, and PCad. For FPGA design we use Vivado, Quartus, Altium Designer, Cadence Allegro or OrCad.

 

Our preferred tool is Altium Designer. It's one of the best CAD design instruments that offers comprehensive capabilities for PCB design tasks.

What types of embedded hardware projects have you developed?

We've designed and developed a wide range of embedded systems, including consumer electronic devices such as an IP camera for monitoring pets remotely, a telecommunications device for blocking fraudulent calls, an autonomous robotic lawn mower, a control panel for a smart home automation system, and a lot of others. You can see a full list of our amazing projects in our case studies.
