High Speed Digital Design
We have considerable expertise in high speed digital designs and have successfully designed a number of consumer home entertainment audio and video systems. These have been based on cutting edge technology as the market has grown and evolved over the past five years.
We also have extensive analogue design expertise ranging from RF instrumentation and low-noise audio through to switch-mode power controllers. All our analog designs are rigorously validated using SPICE based simulations.
Hardware Design Tools
We use a range of PCB design tools for schematic capture and PCB layout for in-house designs. We also work with, or interface to, the customer's own design packages. For example, the customer may wish to produce the schematic, but we are responsible for the PCB layout and prototype production.
We have a wide variety of PC software for design, implementation and testing using C, C++, VB and Java ranging from application suites and component modules to target specific device drivers.
We pride ourselves with our unique embedded microcontroller system software which includes a powerful operating system (OS) and efficient target specific device drivers. Our embedded designs can progress ahead of, or in parallel with, the development of the target hardware. This is achieved by using our in-house developed flexible PC Simulator & Microcontroller Integrated Development Environment Tools.
We never take shortcuts where testing is involved. Our testing methodology is second to none and uses a rigorous and repeatable approach which is based on using PC simulation software, test harnesses and in-circuit Emulation Debuggers.
