Do you need a new design ?
We can help with any aspect from conception to production.
We are experienced in the design of analogue, high speed digital,
and mixed signal circuits.
Our background is in the Telecomm, Audio, Telephone, Radio,
Acoustics, and electromechanical industries, and an outline
of our experience in various design disciplines follows.
Digital design experience encompasses a wide range of devices from
74xx series TTL and compatibles, to modern processors, including
Texas Instruments TMS320 digital signal processors,
(5402 & 5409), and Virata's Helium communications processor family.
Interfacing to logic devices such as codecs, SLIC's, Ethernet PHY,
ATM PHY, MMI, Utopia, USB, RS232. High speed PCB & backplane design &
layout to 150 MHz. Design of effective decoupling for high speed logic
and mixed signal circuits. Measurement and reduction of clock jitter.
Electromagnetic compatibility. Interfacing logic signals to sensors
and high current & high voltage drivers.
Analogue circuit design from DC to radio frequencies using integrated
circuits and discrete components including bipolar and field effect
transistors. Design of low noise amplifiers, analogue signal processing
circuits, filters, impedance matching circuits. Interfacing to external
devices such as microphones and sensors. Interfacing codecs SLIC's,
analogue to digital converters (A/D's), digital to analogue converters
(D/A's) Design of anti aliasing and re construction filters, sample &
hold circuits, switched capacitor filters and interface circuits.
Interfacing to sensors and actuators. Power supply decoupling, noise
reduction, and surge protection. Intercom design. Telephone local loop design.
Power and electromechanical
Power supply design - linear and switched mode. Design of inverters & UPS systems.
Power supply noise reduction, and surge protection.
Driving AC and DC motors, stepper motors.
Electromechanical interfacing to relays, solenoids, pneumatics, and lamps.
Design with power transistors, HEXFET's, triacs and solid state relays.
Calculation of cooling requirements, and specification of heatsinks and fans
EMC/EMI and signal integrity
Design of circuits, backplanes, and interconnections for electromagnetic
compatibility, and to minimise immunity to electromagnetic interference.
Design of RF screened enclosures. PCB layout and design of
effective decoupling. TEM cell development and use.
Test Planning and test equipment design
We have extensive experience in planning for production test,
and in design of test equipment for a wide range of products,
including digital, analogue, RF and mixed signal equipment.
