Electronic Design

Whether you are working from basic prototype designs to intricate high-speed digital systems, we give access to the skillsets needed to build your hardware solution. Great design and development in electronics happens when you have access to support when you need it from the early concept right until product launch. We can also help you with the testing and validation of the hardware, so you are confident any errors have been identified and eliminated.

We help you with:

Bespoke Build and Design – PCB – Electronics Testing and Validation – Prototype Development – Understanding of Digital & Analogue – Integrated Workflow


Embedded Software

Software development is key regardless of it being a part of a larger project or a one-time service. You need reliable, experienced developers who can take a dynamic approach to embedded software and provide a trusted and adaptable platform. In the end it is great software that delivers a compelling user experience.

We help you with:

C, C++ - Python – Programming – Integrated Software Development – Android and iOS – Interface and Functionality

Project Management

If you want accelerated development, you need to start with clear specifications and a precise, working, project plan. Development is dynamic and that means it also needs to be flexible enough to allow for updating and reviewing throughout the course of the project. By applying our phase gated approach, we can ensure you keep the end goal as a fixed point not a moving target.

We help you with:

Resource Planning – Project Development for Electronic Design – Planning – Management Budget Awareness - Structure


Firmware Solutions

When you need a firmware solution for your project you want it intuitive, debugged, fully operational and keyed to the project. Custom firmware development for a variety of popular microcontrollers is a regular request from our clients. Call us and let’s talk about how we can use either bare-metal or real-time operating systems to find the best solution for your hardware.

We help you with:

Firmware – Microcontroller – Debug – Bare Metal – Arm – Python – Interface - RTOS
