Advanced Input Systems has developed a design methodology that makes device outcome reliable, predictable and cost-effective. The success of Advanced Input Systems' standard and application-specific products is based upon our comprehensive Advanced ThruPut library of designs.

Core building blocks from this reusable IP library share a common format for device development. This enables faster integration of technologies and greater manufacturing cost efficiencies—while protecting the integrity of your product. It's a proven methodology that customers find beneficial at start-up and later, during the next-generation design stage.

From short run projects to high volume continuance programs, our approach is simple: we can design and develop your product or we can take your design and develop your product. Either way, partnering with us significantly reduces risk, increases flexibility, and assures time-critical windows are met.

Working on projects as diverse as air traffic control, medical ultrasound, submarine-based sonar systems, and naval surface defense radar applications, position Advanced Input Systems to help identify, develop and support devices that customers need now, and years from now.

For over two decades we've been refining our uninterrupted flow of production techniques. And we continue to leverage extensive manufacturing and technical service capabilities to distinguish every input device - and customer.
