Hardware Development

Hardware development for industrial automation is done from concept to creation. Therefore, it includes the design of the electronic schematic, layout design, and design optimization.

For every step of the development process, our team ensures that:

In order to ensure the superior quality of the designed systems, our team develops the necessary environments for the simulation of the circuits. We make sure that the electrical, thermal, and also mechanical parameters of the circuit are within the limits allowed by the client and legislative requirements.

Also, our engineers ensure that the designed circuits are manufactured according to the project specifications and provide customers with the necessary assistance in communicating with the printed circuit board manufacturers. In order to do that, we are choosing the best suppliers who can produce the printed circuit boards according to the specifications of the design and within the budget of the customers.
