Electronics Development

In recent decades, electronics-based products have been characterized by a tremendous growth in terms of both complexity and features. At the same time, however, there is increased demand for reducing development times and streamlining technology to make it even more cost-effective. Combined, this means one thing above all for those who develop electronics: the requirements of a well-functioning product development process are growing at the same rate.

Analogue and Digital

We work with electronics development on different levels. We develop analogue and digital designs that can, for instance, involve measuring sensor signals and controlling pumps and motors. To be able to communicate with the surrounding world, we implement either a wireless communications link using Bluetooth or some other type of short range radio, or send the information via cables such as USB, CAN, FlexRay or traditional serial interfaces such as RS232 or RS485.

High and Numerous Demands

When we develop electronics, every single kind of requirement is implemented – ranging from user requirements to functional requirements and regulatory requirements. We have extensive experience when it comes to developing Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) optimized designs, products that are engineered for use in explosive environments according to EX classifications, as well as products that have to meet medical regulatory requirements.

Schematics and layouts are designed in different tools, such as Altium Designer. The circuit board production and component assembly is then often carried out by one of our subcontractors. With that said, we do also offer in-house production and total product ownership when it comes to smaller volume Products.

Power Electronics

Throughout all of the projects that we have carried out over the years, we have gradually built up extensive knowledge and experience regarding the development of power electronic systems. Within this area there are a number of great examples, such as advanced motor control design for all types of electric motors (including sensorless control of BLDC), fuel cell monitoring, intelligent power distribution in vehicles, and PCB design with point-of-load. All of these have been created with highly power- and energy-efficient designs, which translates into extra-long battery life with power classes from mW to kW. All smart battery technology design and certification is performed under the safety directive IEC 62133 2nd ed. (battery safety), transport directives UN38.3 (IAETA) and LVD.
