At Unisensor we develop our own embedded electronics hardware for our products. The hardware complexity ranges from simple stepper motor control boards, low noise data acquisition boards to high performance processing platforms with support for high level operating systems. The hardware team at Unisensor therefore has broad experience within the different fields of electronics development. This ranges from low-noise analogue electronics measuring nano-amps of current, low-power digital circuits on battery supply, high data rate imaging cameras to FPGAs and signal processors with DDR2 SDRAM, Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet, etc.
Our hardware engineers generally go through all stages of the design cycle when designing new electronics for Unisensor products. This involves setting and understanding requirements, designing the solution and choosing components to drawing schematics, making PCB layout and fully testing manufactured prototypes. The electronics are usually developed to pass environmental and EMC tests as well as being manufactured in high volume.
Designing good electronics requires good tools and at Unisensor we use state-of-the-art CAD tools and always make sure we have up-to-date versions. We are member of several knowledge sharing groups to always keep our knowledge up to date on EMC issues, CAD tool usage, etc.
