Electronic Hardware Design

The product requirements, architecture, cost and technology objectives contribute to the basis for the electronic design of the product. We have extensive electronic design experience across a broad range of digital, mixed signal, analog, photonic (optical), wireless (RF) and power control applications. We also specialize in EMI compliance consulting and design solutions for clients needing to meet FCC and international emissions standards. Our hardware designs are so quiet, we've been asked "Is it on?" during FCC part 15 compliance testing.

CDL has extensive electronic hardware design experience with the following:

  • High Performance Embedded & Client-Server Systems
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's)
  • Medical Devices and Products
  • Scientific Instrumentation
  • Smart Sensors & Mechatronics
  • Industrial Process Control & Instrumentation
  • Consumer Products
  • GPS Subsystems & Vehicle Telematics
  • Automated Test Equipment & Fixtures
  • High Speed Data Communications, RF, Optical & Copper
  • NTSC/PAL/SECAM, SMPTE, MPEG Video Test Equipment
  • Specialized CCD Cameras & Photonic Sensors
  • High Voltage / High Current Power Control

We use:
