Electrical Engineering Services

At Single Source Circuit Design we offer a variety of electrical engineering services. We selected these particular electrical engineering services to provide fortification of our client's bandwidth in the most flexible manner possible. The reality in most companies today is that development teams rarely have all of the bandwidth that they need to be successful. Electrical engineers are saturated with their own tasks. Working with outside electrical engineering services to form reliable and expert teams has become a necessity. The specially selected electrical engineering services we provide support a range of these needs; from tasks as simple as signal integrity simulation for a high speed board to expertise for an unfamiliar technology all of the way to full electronic product development. This means you can trust your project to electrical engineering experts in the services you need.

Projects Completed By our Electrical Engineering Services Team:

  • Wireless Smart Home Device
  • Professional sporting event timer
  • Board and system level Signal Integrity evaluation
  • Telecom FCC Agency approval
  • Maritime computer
  • LVP and VPI

Embedded Processor Design Electrical Engineering Services

Our Electrical Engineering Team has extensive experience with the services we offer; designing hardware and firmware concurrently, from the ground up to ensure interoperability and an efficient design. Embedded and microcontroller designs are a particular strength for SSCD's electrical engineering services team. We use mainly C/C++ and assembly language for a variety of platforms in both traditional environments and Real Time Operating Systems.

Firmware Development Electrical Engineering Services

Hardware description languages such as Verilog HDL and VHDL (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language) were originally designed to simulate digital circuits and enable designers to formalize the model of their designs. Today, they are used by our electrical engineering services team and others as a complete solution providing a means to define digital designs, model, simulate and then implement these designs by programming them directly into a Programmable Logic Device (PLD).

At SSCD our electrical engineering services team excels at FPGA and CPLD development which we offer both as part of a full project or a as stand alone service to support our clients with their internal projects. With solid experience in firmware development for FPGAs and CPLDs from Altera and Xilinx our electrical engineering services team typically programs in the VHDL code and uses the Xilinx ISE toolset to model, synthesize, simulate, and program programmable logic device designs.

RoHS Coversions/Pb Free Electrical Engineering Services

As a result of the European Union requirement that most electronics be lead free and RoHS compliant by July 2006 many existing electronics designs will require conversion. Even for those who do not have to be RoHS compliant there will be issues with parts availability that must be addressed. The SSCD electrical engineering team can convert current products to lead free, RoHS designs with our RoHS Conversion services. We are encouraging our electrical engineering services clients to use this as an opportunity to not only convert their existing design but to also have us make a cost reduction or feature enhancement pass on these products.

Size and/or Cost-Reduction Redesign Electrical Engineering Services

A core competency in our repertoire of electrical engineering services, for 13 years Single Source Circuit Design has specialized in reducing product size and cost. Utilizing high reliability engineering techniques and firmware media such as FPGAs and PLDs in combination with high density PCB layout techniques and chip scale packaging, we are able to reduce the size of a product by as much as 80%. With these highly integrated solutions our electrical engineering team can effectively reduce parts count, board size, manufacturing and product costs for our clients requesting these services. By employing the latest embedded control processors, CPLD/FPGA solutions and low power electronics in our electrical engineering services approach to product design we reduce gate count, increase flexibility and create in-circuit programmability that ultimately reduces the number of board turns required over the life of the product.

When our electrical engineering services team executes cost reduction redesign they typically reduce the BOM and manufacturing costs by a large enough percentage that it commonly pays for the project NRE in less than one year. The second order advantages that result from this process, lower power, higher reliability and lower warranty/return costs which reduces the time necessary to realize project return on investment considerably makes these particular electrical engineering services the most in demand.

At the foundation of our electrical engineering services team' s unique approach to lowering parts count and overall product costs while simultaneously increasing product reliability is a combination of techniques they have amalgamated from the strict space and weight requirements of the aerospace industry and the cost models driving commercial industry.

Agency Approvals Electrical Engineering Support Services

Utilizing our electrical engineering team or stand alone services for your own design team, our NARTE certified EMI/EMC Engineer will review products at the full system or the individual pcb level. Applying his 30 years of experience we have successfully passed FCC, UL, CSA and CE mark with our client's products. At the end of the review and correction process we are available to go to the labs with your team to facilitate.
