Hardware Design and
Successful hardware development comes from two factors: defining hardware requirements from a product concept and integrating hardware designs with firmware/software. As product concepts become more detailed, they tend to quickly diverge into many different directions. Maintaining a system level vision of the product concept allows all the hardware requirements to be captured and prioritized. Those requirements are further refined based upon past design experience to configure/extend the hardware, ease firmware integration, speed software development, and support future growth. USA Firmware has the team, the expertise and experience to design great hardware solutions for our clients’ product concepts today.
Consumer and Industrial Hardware Products
USA Firmware has experience designing hardware to fit into challenging packaging and survive rugged environments. We have designed hardware products for:
- Embedded OS platforms
- High availability Real Time Operating System (RTOS) platforms
- Custom Roll-Your-Own (RYO) and bare metal controller designs
Our hardware engineering team can also design for quality (ISO, RoHS), safety (ULⓇ, CSA, CE) and emissions (FCC) compliance.
Handheld and Battery-Operated Hardware Solutions
Our team has designed very low-power embedded systems that can be run from small single use or rechargeable batteries. We design simple, intuitive GUI touch interfaces for handheld devices and wireless IoT sensor devices for distributed applications.
Wireless Connectivity Hardware Solutions
USA Firmware has designed and supported projects that use Wi-Fi, BT, BLE, Thread, Zigbee, ZWave and others. We help our clients choose the correct type of wireless communication for their product. We can also help them define the operation limits to maximize wireless usage and detail proper layout and design to reduce interference and improve compliance.
