We design consumer and professional products (AV and IT) that range in value from £30 to £20,000. Offering experience of lower cost high volume products that require the maximum possible feature set for the given unit cost vs high cost low volume products that are designed with no expense spared component / feature quality levels.
We are primarily electronic engineers offering circuit design with prototyping, schematic capture, PCB design, prototype build, test and validation, test fixtures, all areas customised to suit processes for low to high volume manufacture.
Our approach to electronics is based upon first principles and this knowledge and understanding can be applied to all areas of the field. For sensitive audio signals to co-exist with technology it is essential to apply high performance, high signal integrity, high bandwidth and low noise electronic design techniques to keep the highest possible audio quality and still offer the benefits of cutting edge technology. Some of the current hardware technologies we have worked with are:
DSPs, Microprocessors and CPLDs.
HDMI to 1080p
Analogue video to 1080i (composite to component)
Impedance control PCB design (<3.2GBps)
Discrete Analogue and Digital power supplies (LVD to 1000V).
Discrete Analogue and Digital power amplifiers.
Transistors, FETs, SCR and Triacs
Design for EMC showing understanding of RF principles
Designing in and around Mobile phones and wireless comms (High performance Iphone docks)
Acoustic design, simulation, development and measurement, for both loudspeakers and headphone (intra, supra, circumaural) design. Science based design and development with a large emphasis on linking the science and measurements to the listening experience.
Software design (8 bit PIC, 8, 16, 32 bit Atmel, 32 bit XMOS and Sharc DSP).
Combining electronics and software has allowed us to understand and develop User Interfaces: displays, graphics and touch screen controllers for various applications.
Mechanical design (2D and 3D CAD) for folded and machined parts, experience of mouldings.
Design to all relevant EMC and Safety requirements.
In order to best accommodate your company's needs we also offer contacts to support areas of the process that aren't offered directly, such as compliance / approvals, manufacturing, marketing and sales.
