ADVANCED THRUPUT DESIGN LIBRARY REDUCES RISK:

Advanced Input Systems has developed a design methodology that makes device outcome reliable, predictable and cost-effective – ultimately reducing your design-through-production cycle. Core building blocks from our comprehensive library of designs share a common format for device development. This enables faster integration of technologies and also enhances device manufacturing cost efficiencies, while protecting the integrity of your product.

OUR DESIGN ENGINEERING TEAMS HAVE DEVELOPED AND BROUGHT TO MARKET A NUMBER OF MAJOR INITIATIVES AND ADVANCEMENTS:

  • Design patents in process
  • Component engineering/analyst function supporting life cycle management of new designs into long-term production
  • Embedded 8051 core microprocessor designs and variants
  • OrCAD for Schematic capture, CadStar for PCB layout
  • OrCAD Physical Design software
  • Reusable building blocks for common reoccurring embedded control functions and switch modules
  • Extensive experience with PC interfaces predominant in commercial products, and industry testing to established bus protocols
