Mistakes in electronic hardware design can lead to significant costs if caught too late.

Let us help you get it right first time. Our broad expertise in hardware electronics means our engineers are capable of supporting the design, manufacture and verification of prototype PCBs. We have extensive experience in implementing custom hardware in novel applications – offering end-to-end solutions to our customer’s complex problems.

Our capabilities

  • Circuit level and system level electronic hardware design and analysis
  • Complex electronic hardware design and analysis
  • Concept design and feasibility studies
  • Robust design
  • Design for manufacture and compliance.

Converting a design concept to a physical product requires careful circuit board design.

Our offerings toward prototype implementation extend beyond simple schematic capture. Our engineers are highly experienced with PCB best practice, including PCB manufacturing process specification and component supply chain management. Our expertise allows us to keep timescales to a minimum and facilitate rapid prototype manufacture.

Our capabilities

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Low TRL development.

Managing the maintenance, upgrade and component life of existing and legacy electronic systems is a complex task.

Our engineers can review the component list and the lifecycle management plan, assessing the associated risks arising from unavailability of components and system obsolescence. Our bespoke modelling tool allows us to predict when a component will become obsolete and put plans in place to mitigate impact on availability.

Our capabilities

  • System modelling and analysis
  • Equipment/component specification and selection.

Integration of hardware systems requires careful testing to ensure safe operation and to collect evidence for qualification.

Our engineers have experience of hardware in the loop (HIL) testing ranging from small embedded devices to large systems of systems. Our in-house capability and scalable testing platforms allow us to use our expert knowledge in designing and carrying out HIL testing, as well as thorough analysis of results.

Our capabilities

  • Technology optioneering
  • Test case generation and management
  • Scalable platform solutions
  • Reusable test systems
  • Full lifecycle support.

Ensuring that hardware operates as expected is key to the development of a safe and reliable system.

Our hardware engineers can design, commission and deliver a bespoke hardware testing facility. Our vendor neutrality allows us to deliver the best performing system without component restrictions. Our modelling experts can also implement software models of complex hardware systems for verification purposes during testing.

Our capabilities

  • Test rig design
  • Vendor neutral test rig construction
  • Hardware testing
  • Digital clone modelling.
