Electronic Design

Each design presents its unique challenges and conflicting requirements. The Hardware Architecture shows how these conflicts can be mitigated, the technology that will be used and how the various parts will work together to meet the customer’s requirements.

Building up block diagrams and system integration diagrams allows the design team to understand the peripheral interfaces between the devices. From these diagrams the most appropriate silicon-based devices can be selected. The interface specifications can be built up from these diagrams, which allow the software team to understand the system and to start development of the firmware.

Our Electronics Engineers work with the other members of the team to ensure the best possible design integration for your product. Our wide experience and knowledge base allows us to put together the best team to deliver a fully functioning design that fulfils your exact requirements using cutting edge and innovative components and design.

Understanding the manufacturing process allows us to design PCBs that are not only fit for purpose, but manufacturable in a cost effective and efficient way. By involving our suppliers early in the design stages, an understanding between the final manufacturers and the designers can be built up. This improves their ability to test and to understand our design and increases our clients’ confidence.

How can we make it Better, Faster, Smaller, Cheaper...?

The first stage in the development of a PCB design is to capture the schematic for the circuit. Circuits are usually designed using a schematic capture tool as part of a PCB design suite. In addition to purely performing the schematic capture, simulations of the circuit may be undertaken at this stage.

For applications such as RF, circuit design simulation will enable the final circuit to be optimised, reducing the need to build prototypes. The capture tool often provides crucial information for documents to be produced such as a bill of materials.

PCB design programmes may be very complicated and require precise setting up to allow optimal layout and routing to be achieved. Using a suitable CAD package provides all the necessary capability to enable the layout of boards with thousands of components, nodes and tracks to be designed and laid out. Sometimes the use of software tools is required to enable the routing to be completed successfully.

PCB layout must be followed by a rigorous checking process to ensure that all the requirements are met, and the best PCB performance is obtained.

We use simulation tools such as SPICE to verify selected parts of a design. Methods such as Monte Carlo analysis can help us understand how a design might behave in production, allowing us to understand our design and refine it if needed before more investment is required for production boards or software.

Other mathematical modelling and analysis can be developed and used to optimise battery life and power dissipation. These techniques help to reduce risk and reduce development time.

Measure twice, cut once…
Use time and other resources wisely
