Connected Hardware Development
Add wireless freedom and connectivity to your idea.Our experienced electronics engineers can add cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, RFID, GPS, custom radio protocols, or other types of secure wireless control and connectivity to your product. While our in-house development team can take your connected hardware idea from concept through to manufacturing.
Power and portability
Your product idea needs power to come to life, and your options have never been greater.We know AC, DC, Li Ion and NIMH portable battery systems, non-contact inductive charging, USB, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and more. From the high power requirements of industrial equipment to the ultra-low power states and power management of Internet connected devices, we can design efficient, reliable solutions.
Users can interact with your product in myriad ways, and a better user experience is a distinct competitive advantage.We’re experts in all forms of user inputs, including touch-pads, biometrics, keys, and more. When it comes to outputs, we have you covered from high performance audio, video, vibration, light pipes, all types of display systems, and GUI design.
Sensors, intelligence, and automation
Whether industrial, medical, or consumer in nature, your product may need to capture data, process information, and control responses.We have years of experience integrating all types of inputs, including: video, audio, image, temperature, vibration, and sensor data of all types. We also develop the embedded software you need to interface with other devices and systems, communicate with the outside world, run applications, and control motors, servos, and other electro-mechanical devices.
Get your product market-ready
Ensure your product performs to the highest standards and complies with all regulatory requirements.At every step of your design project, we conduct comprehensive verification and validation testing. When your product is ready for volume manufacturing, we can help you develop the tools and processes for production testing, including test applications, custom jigging, and electronic test automation.
