Electronic Product Design Services
Circuit Design is often (not always) the first stage in any Electronic based Product Design. Using the very latest in schematic and simulation tools we capture your concept.
We will take your concept or Idea and convert it into a Schematic Diagram. At this stage of the design process we will consider such areas as component cost and availability as a high priority. Where possible, the circuit or sections of the circuit diagram will be simulated to evaluate and test performance before producing any hardware. A Bill of Materials can then be issued enabling you begin looking at obtaining pricing structures from you selected contract manufacturer.
We will design your PCB to your specifications and produce prototypes.
At Amarula Electronics we understand that each and every PCB design requires a varied level of complexity and PCB DRC (Design Rule Checking) techniques. This is considered as a high priority at the beginning stages of your PCB design to ensure we can provide you with the best possible design at the lowest manufacturing cost.
Your custom Electronic Product Design will begin to come to life…. We can also provide 3D representations of the finished product, plus simulation reports where necessary.
SOFTWARE & FIRMWARE DESIGN
We will work with you to provide working applications and firmware.
We cover a vast range of Programming Languages and architectures. From embedded micro-controller firmware to complete Android operating system design.
Just some of the key areas we continue to work with include:
- Amazon FreeRTOS
- Android (Embedded Customization and Mobile Applications)
- Linux Drivers and Operating System customization
- STM32 Processors
- Arduino Programming
- Raspberry Pi
- PIC Micro-controllers
- ARM Processors
- Dialog Semiconductor BLE processors
- i.MX Family Processors
For any other software platforms, please get in touch to see how we can be of assistance.
CAD – PRODUCT DESIGN
Our excellent team can provide stunning conceptual renders to full manufacturable designs.
Once we have a PCB Layout confirmed, we can export the 3D model of the Printed Circuit Board with all of the components fitted and see how it measures up compared with either your supplied enclosure CAD, or we can generate this for you.
Our Engineering team will come up with concepts for your product based on your input and provide rendered images until you are happy with the look and feel. The chosen design will then be improved upon until it is ready to be prototyped and manufactured.
DIGITAL CIRCUIT DESIGN
Some projects require custom digital signal processing that might not be possible in off the shelf DSP processors. At the same time, doing a full ASIC run can take a long time, and is expensive. FPGAs allow us to quickly develop a working solution that can be easily updates as requirements change during the development process.
We have experience doing digital circuit design using VHDL for FPGAs from several different vendors. We also write the low level device drivers that are required for your applications to interact with the hardware.
Why Choose Us?
We can provide up to 100 units* PCB prototype in as little as 2 days from receiving the materials. You can either Free-Issue the components and PCB’s or we can include the cost of these in the Estimate we provide you. Our pricing is amongst the lowest in the UK and compared to Far-East Manufacturers can even work out cheaper when you consider the Import Duties normally associated.
There are many companies that exist who outsource the PCB assembly to another company and charge you a premium for the service. At Amarula Electronics, we have the equipment in-house to handle PCB Prototype Manufacture saving you cost and time.
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE
Turnkey solution / Project Management
We work with you to turn your ideas into a fully functional product.
Managing all stages for you from Schematic Design through to Prototype production and any certification required, we then pass you to our EMS partners for large scale production.
