The expertise you need

IDC provides a full development service including design, specification and procurement of the electronics and electro-mechanical systems as an integrated part of our product development service.

Our experienced electronics engineers have in-depth knowledge of analogue and digital hardware and software design, as well as design for high and low volume manufacture. Our skills include:

  • Software: Assembler, C/C++, Visual Basic, Linux, .net
  • User interface (GUI) programming
  • Controller Design: Microcontroller/FPGA design
  • Embedded firmware: C/VHDL/VERILOG
  • Analogue/digital design
  • A/D or D/A converters
  • Power electronics
  • Opto-electronics including CCD integration
  • Wireless technologies: Wifi/Bluetooth/GSM/GPS
  • Serial interface RS 232/TTL, I2C, SPI
  • USB
  • PCB, schematic and layout design
  • Interface and cable wiring design
  • Miniaturisation and feasibility studies
  • Motor controllers (stepper, dc and servo)
  • Design for EMC compliance.

As well as typical software programming languages, we have extensive experience programming FPGAs, CPLDs and ASICs, using hardware description languages (HDL) such as VHDL and Verlilog and verifying with test benches using ModelSim, with test vectors generated using Mathcad or Matlab.

We are comfortable designing to meet stringent approvals such as those used in medical, aerospace and defence and frequently undertake hardware and software design verification and documentation. We also assist with drafting patents to protect the IP we develop for you.
