Expert and his senior team have many years of experience designing embedded circuits, instruments, medical devices, and software.
Expert in all types of measurements. Analog circuit design, digital circuit design, and mixed signal design, as well as measurement and
control software. Specializing in sensors, motion control, wireless, and medical device design, the staff of very senior engineers can design
a new product rapidly that works the first time. We are experienced with:

Medical devices – we have an approved Design Control procedure meeting FDA 21CFR 820.30 and ISO 13485:2003
Sensors such as temperature, pressure, flow, vibration, force, strain, distance, and cameras.
Sensor signal conditioning and analog-to-digital converters (ADCs and DACs).
Analog circuit design: low current (picoamps) and high speed (over 100 MHz).
Motion control systems – stepper motors, servo motors, and AC motors
Wireless: BlueTooth, Zigbee, CDMA, GPRS, GSM, GPS, and RFID.
FPGA and CPLD: Altera and Xilinx using Quartus, ISE, ModelSim, VHDL, and Verilog tools.
Embedded design: microprocessors (Intel, TI, Freescale, Renesas, PIC, etc.).
Serial: I2C, SPI, RS-232, RS-485, RS-422, Modbus, etc.
Embedded software using ECOS or custom operating systems.
PC peripheral interfaces, such as PCI bus, USB, and Ethernet.
Windows drivers and DLLs
PC software on Windows and Linux.
Microsoft C (C++, C#, and .NET), Java, Visual Basic, and LabVIEW.
