Embedded systems, the heart of every smart product


Embedded systems are in every modern smart product. We have designed and successfully brought to market countless products based on microcontroller, microprocessor, DSP, FPGA or System on a Chip (SoC). We are experts at using and optimizing performances of top tier semiconductor products such as Intel, NXP, QualComm, Broadcom, Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, Xilinx, STMicro, Renesas, and many more.
 
 

Wireless & GNSS expertise


Wireless technology is part of our DNA. Many of our experts have decades of expertise designing microwave backhaul radios and satellite products. Our specialties include RF system design, RF transceivers, radio signal processing, software media access control (MAC) and networking functions, and product calibration and testing.

With the proliferation of IoT sensor devices, wireless connectivity requirements have become critically important for many applications. Over the years we have developed reliable solutions that are now deployed in many products addressing a multitude of wireless connectivity use-cases. Not only are we proficient in implementing hardware wireless solutions, we are also deeply familiar with all the software aspects required to design, customize and realize a product for particular applications. Some of our recent product development projects include design, optimization and customization of multiple wireless protocols such as WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth (BLE), LoRA-WAN, Sub-GHz Proprietary, and 3G/4G LTE.

Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are now used in multiple applications where geolocation and timing are necessary. Several of our recent product developments include GNSS sensors with augmenting technologies such as dead reckoning. These GNSS sensors are often integrated on embedded systems where several design considerations are required to fully obtain top GNSS performance.

 
 

Analog & power supply circuitry | Signal integrity & PCB layout


Analog circuit design is an art form that can be used to create innovative circuits that no one thought possible. We are experts at mixed signal circuits, low noise sensors, signal chain amplifiers, and clock synchronizer and generators. Our approach combines extensive circuit simulations with practical implementations and lab measurements. To fully realize high-performance analog circuits, PCB layout becomes critical. With PCB layout expertise integrated in our core product development process we are able to design and build reliable and repeatable high-performance analog circuits.

Power supply design is critical in many applications. We have developed design methodologies that are used for power solutions that balance cost, footprint, power efficiency, thermal and noise performances. We can re-use several power solutions that have been proven for specific applications and efficiently apply them to your products. We have also qualified multiple highly configurable PMIC solutions that we can leverage for particular applications. We are also very familiar with power requirements for multiple markets and applications having stringent power constraints such as automotive, industrial, telecom and medical.

Signal Integrity and PCB Layout are an intimate part of our design process to ensure your product will have sufficient margin to ensure a high production yield. Our specialities are high-speed digital (SERDES, Clocks, DDRx), power distribution and analog/RF circuits.
