We are an Engineering company who turns unique customer requirements into well designed innovative solutions.
Our primary expertise is with Instrumentation, measuring
things, control, embedded
systems, robotics, real-time, DSP and Internet of Things (IoT) systems.
knowledge and abilities are extensive. We perform innovative Research
and Development tightly integrating electronics with software.
We are based near Bath and Bristol. Just give us a call to discuss your needs and see if we can work with you to develop a new product or solution.
We are especially experienced in developing innovative and practical systems for customers. Our research and development abilities along with our extensive knowledge of electronics hardware and software allow us to design systems, large or small and provide unique and often simple solutions. Unusually our engineers are experienced in both hardware and software design and are adept at hardware/software integration which allows us to provide efficient design solutions.
Our work majors in the field of instrumentation, sensors, data
and processing, control, robotics, low-power interface and scientific
systems. Routinely we use digital signal processing (DSP), real-time
and parallel processing techniques. Systems are often based on ARM
Cortex low-power micro-processors or PIC/Atmel processors through ARM
Linux systems to real-time multi-FPGA systems capable of processing 18
billion samples per second.
We can design digital and analogue electronic circuits
developing to prototype or small to medium production runs. With our
partners we can design mechanical assemblies and move to higher level
production runs. The local York EMC test house provides us the ability
for us to take a system design through the range of CE standards testing
The companies we work with range from small two man companies
to larger oil and gas engineering companies, science companies and
Whatever your system, instrumentation, software or
electronics requirements are please don't hesitate to contact us for an
informal chat or visit. We can often provide new insights and ideas for
your systems or products.
We can also help and partner with you on InnovateUK funded projects. Please don't hesitate to contact us.
We have experienced bespoke software developers and work in many varied areas. Embedded systems and real-time systems are a speciality especially when digital signal processing is involved. However we have also been involved with developing massive data storage systems with MySQL databases and PHP based WEB front ends.
IoT software is also a speciality, we often include mini WEB servers into systems for control and data management over Wifi, Ethernet or other interfaces.
We are well versed in all aspects of the Linux OS from writing applications to writing Linux kernel device drivers and porting Linux to new hardware platforms.
Many of our projects are commercially sensitive. So this list just includes a few of the open projects we have carried out. Please see our examples for more.
Prolab Water Quality purification
This project designed and developed the electronics and software for a laboratory ultra-pure water purification system.
Automotive Emission Control System
A unit for the reduction of pollutants generated by automotive internal combustion engines.
Cable Measuring Systems
Using our extensive instrumentation research and development abilities we have developed innovative cable monitoring techniques to measure insulation resistance with high accuracy on live operating cable systems.
As part of our internal R&D program we have developed hardware boards and software tools to allow us to get the most out of the new 32 bit ARM Cortex processors.
NetDsp Xilinx Vertex 6 based 1u DSP processing system
This project design and developed a FPGA based system to process radio signals is a small 1U rack mounted case. We designed and produced the 16 layer PCB that utilises a XilinxVirtex-6 FPFA to process the radio signals in real-time.
Particle Trajectory Measurement System for the CERN Proton Synchrotron
This project involved the design, construction,commissioning, support and maintenance of a new trajectory measurement system for the CERN Proton Synchrotron.
