Clamcase iPad Bluetooth Keyboard

We developed the original electronics for the Clamcase iPad keyboard and supported both FCC testing and production. This project required Schematic design, PCB layout, and bluetooth firmware development.

Industrial Control Board

This PCB is for an industrial control product utilizing motor control, fan control, temperature sensing, USB connectivity, and an LCD based user interface.

Septentrio/Altus Multi-Constellation GNSS

We developed the mother board connecting and integrating Sepentrio's GPS technologies with a single board Linux computer. We also developed the firmware to integrate cellular modem, bluetooth and ethernet connections.

Smart Headphones PCB

This board implemented USB audio connected to an single board Android computer. The board took USB audio to a USB to I2S controller to a DAC to a headphone amplifier. It also implemented a OLED display and button input using a microcontroller.

Stratify Toolbox

The Stratify Toolbox is an internal product that we are taking from concept to production. It is a development and debugging tool. Our industrial design and mechanical engineering partners did provided the design the machined aluminum chassis while we designed the PCB and firmware.

The Toolbox uses just about every embedded serial protocol available: USB, UART, SPI, I2S, I2C, SDIO, H-bridge driver, and advanced timer capture. The user interface is the Stratify App built using QML/Qt. Learn More

Microcontroller Prosthetic Knee Prototype

This control board precisely controlled three motors using QEI encoders. An additional QEI encoder was used for measuring the angle of the knee. The QEI encoders were processed using a the microcontroller plus a CPLD. The microcontroller implemented an algorithm that could store and release energy that aided gait and high energy activities.
