  • Supporting the customer in the custom design of hardware and software
  • Comprehensive Lifecycle Support
  • Multi-Disciplined Engineering Teams
  • Fast manufacturing of prototypes aimed at obtaining short deadlines in the product development and validation phases
  • Test engineering: Test in circuit, Burn-in, Functional test
  • Single Source for Engineered Products & Solutions 

 

Communications

We have developed a significant experience in communication protocol design under SPI, UART, I2C (multimaster), LIN, IR among the most important.

 

Motor Control

We are also specialists in motor control techniques using low-cost drivers for ACIM (single-phase or three-phase), PMSM, BLDC and DC motors, having experience also in designing motor specifications. The topologies we are more familiar with are: phase control, three-phase inverter, DC chopper.

 

 

Green Power

Another important sector of our engineering expertise is the development of electronics for battery and hybrid products. We are capable of developing not only the electronics, but also the pack of batteries, including the BMS and the battery charger.

 

 

Mechatronics

We have a deep expertise integrating electronic designs with mechanical parts, the so said 'mechatronics', including mechanical 3D CAD (Solidworks).

 

 

Embedded computer

In the last years we have also acquired some expertise in the development of solutions based on embedded circuits (Qseven and EXM32), including TFT driving, Ethernet, USB, wireless communications, GPS, GSM/GPRS. We are also skilled in developing electronic (hardware and software) applications based on Linux or Windows CE operating systems.

 

 

Also starring

Design of user's interactive machine, such as Kiosks, ATM, ticketing, Industrial Computers, Banknotes scanners, sport betting or slot machines where we can find solutions based on modular systems (code readers, magnetic or contactless card readers, etc.) with STN Graphic display, Alphanumeric LCD displays, LCD Monitors, Touch Sensors.

 

 

Software Skills

Our team has a good knowledge of C and Assembly languages for microcontrollers. We have a huge experience and knowledge in communication routines, self-programming libraries, user's interface routines (LCD, Led 7-segments, etc.), analog signal measurement as thermocouples RTD, NTC, pressure sensors, strain gauges, hall sensor, voltage and currents sensing devices, PID regulation algorithms with digital sampling, PWM, phase control, self-testing routines and software encryption routines.

Other important skills are in visual languages such as Visual Basic, Visual C#, QT, Java, XML/XSLT, LabVIEW and TestStand among others. For many of our project we have designed PC applications to interacting, firmware programming, data log and software parametrization.

 

 

Safety Regulations

We have developed a good experience in designing class B applications and getting them VDE approved, according to software and hardware International Safety Standards (f.i. 60335 and 60730).

 

 

The 360 Degrees Engineering Offer

Our engineering capabilities cover all the process from initial specifications, hardware and PCB design (Altium, CadStar), software development, prototype assembly and testing and product industrialization, including production tools and test equipment.
