Custom Board Development
Our claim to fame is our ability to develop custom boards as well as new products quickly and efficiently. We
emphasize the use of small development teams with one (or more) persons assigned to each major aspect of the
design effort, conceptual design, PLD design entry, simulation schematic entry, test code, and documentation. We
place a lot of emphasis on making documentation easy to understand; this allows for easier customization and
re-use of core designs on variations of a product.
The time span to develop a new product is typically 8 to 14 weeks. In one case we made a major design
variation (doubled FIFO width) in less than two weeks (from decision to delivered product); this included new
artwork, raw board fab, assembly, and testing.
The challenge of doing a high quality design in the shortest time possible is an important part of our
companys culture. We have a winning team focused on high quality, state-of-the-art products, and good customer
