General Standards Corporation’s mission is to be the dominant provider of PMC and high performance PCI analog, digital, and serial I/O boards for the embedded market. We will achieve this through our commitment to open standards, high quality, and customer satisfaction.

We have drivers for most of our products. We have VxWorks™, Windows NT™, Windows 2000™, Linux™, Labview™ and Solaris™ drivers for PowerPC, Sparc, and Pentium computer boards.

We are constantly developing new drivers and porting our drivers to the newest processor boards.

We have a staff of Engineers to help answer any questions you may have about our products. We will patiently and courteously provide any support that you need to make sure that you are satisfied with our products.

We pride ourselves on close customer teamwork and strategic alliances with vendors and computer board manufacturers. Our employees understand that our future is in the hands of our customers, and customer satisfaction is the driving force for long-term, mutually beneficial strategic partnerships. We stake our reputation on our ability to work with customers to solve any problems that may arise without ever saying "it’s not our problem".

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 company’s culture. We have a winning team focused on high quality, state-of-the-art products, and good customer service.

Give us a call. We will help you any way we can.
