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. However, our 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.


Innovative Solutions

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 capture 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 companies we work with range from small two man companies to larger oil and gas engineering companies, science companies and research organisations.

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.

For more information please have a look at our development services and examples pages.

Low power IoT systems

Quite a few of our recent projects have been using ARM processors, similar to those used in smart mobile telephones, to produce low power instrumentation and control devices.
If you have older instrumentation or other systems or products, perhaps based on PC hardware, or have new requirements we can design much lower power replacement systems often running Linux. These can perhaps use 3 Watts rather than 60 Watts of energy for the same work and performance. They are also, generally, more reliable due to their simpler hardware and software designs.

We port the Linux OS to systems and are adept at Linux device drivers and application code.

Recent Projects

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.

Automotive Emission Control System
A unit for the reduction of pollutants generated by automotive internal combustion engines.
Prolab Water Quality purification
This project designed and developed the electronics and software for a laboratory ultra-pure water purification system.
Cable Instruments
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.
Armsys 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 board
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 design and produced the 16 layer PCB that utilises a XilinxVirtex-6 FPFA to process the radio signals in real-time
cern rack
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.
