Types of products we help design & develop
Embedded systems/subsystems with high-complexity electronics or software. These products often have functional safety or high-reliability requirements associated with them.
The products tend to be more on the industrial side than consumer, although we do some development on the high-end consumer product side. As such, production quantities generally tend to be on the low-medium volume end of the spectrum.
