Technology is our focus. We cross-pollinate tech from one industry to another with our experienced team. For example, we are masters at CANBus. CANBus has its roots in industrial and automotive applications. We introduced CANbus into industrial restaurant equipment and consumer electronic bedroom applications. In both of these applications we helped our customers in patenting their solutions after we worked together to understand the needs of their industry and explained the trade-offs that various technologies provide. We were able to work together in these cases to invent new unique solutions because our customers are experts in their markets and we are experts in technology.
We love designing new innovative products and seeing our customers leap frog their competition!
Imagine having a programming team that are experts on multiple micros and have a library of 15 years of software solutions to use as examples. Imagine being to market with software solutions in 3 months instead of 2 years. Imagine meeting face to face with an English speaking programmer working on your project and getting results in hours not weeks when you need to make a change or have a field issue. Imagine not having to have conference calls in the middle of the night. Welcome to Dave Engineering Design Works. Our programming team integrates with your software and management team. Everyone learns from each other and a better product is the result.
With over 30 years of power electronics design experience we have designed many power products. We have the capabilities in our lab to test all kinds of power and motor control designs up to 3,000 Watts and build pilot-ready quality prototypes lighting fast. We are great at low power too. We designed a 3kW UPS that has a quiescent sleep current at 900nA (nano-amps is not a typo.)
High-precision analog circuits can be an art to get good signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) results. It takes an understanding of PCB layout techniques and attention to grounding details as well as choosing the correct components. For example, understanding what a slew-rate is on an Operational amplifier specification.
We are equipped to support all the FIR FFT fun you want to have. We love spinning motors with FOC from our friends Park and Clarke, chopping up audio files, playing with PLLs, and reading your mind with EEGs.
We are experts in providing wireless integration. There are many flavors and choices when it comes to wireless. It is critical to understand the use case, price point, environment, and capabilities and support plan for the wireless interface. We can provide chip down designs for high volume applications >100k units/year or pre-certified module-based product designs. We have ready to go solution templates for Wifi, MiWi, Flat Mesh, SubGHz, Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Audio, Bluetooth Smart Low Energy (BLE) and more.
Wired communication can be anything from a simple board to board I2C, SPI, or UART single-ended medium to a differential protocol bus such as J1939, CANbus, CANOpen, Profibus, or Modbus built on an RS485 medium and onward to a more complicated but much more powerful and isolated such as Ethernet. No problem- we have seen them all. USB, accelerometers, Gyros ….no problem.
Platforms & Modulo Controls
Sometimes a full custom design is too expensive. We offer quick-start kits that are a platform to get to production quickly. We offer multiple platform based products that we can wrap your needs around as a quick-to-market solution. We offer solutions for Graphics LCD, Flat Mesh Wireless, IoT Hubs. Over the years, we have also made some of our own tools out of necessity. Our DE-ISP & DE-JTAG & DE-ISP+ are adapters for in-system programming and debugging so that you can put a very small cost effective programming header on your target board.
User Interface & Displays
There are many technologies we can provide: LVDS or HDMI LCD interfaces, 4.3” LCD P-Cap touch screens that are designed for wet glove environments, 7 segment multi-color LED displays with Metal Over Cap for harsh and explosive environments. We can help you navigate those choices and provide a complete solution to your needs using cutting-edge looks and techniques while also designing for manufacturability, procurement, and certification.
We are constantly working closely with component vendors to keep up with new products to meet the needs of various LED lighting applications such as growing plants, architectural lighting, concert lighting, smart home automation, and even water proof applications. We offer wireless mesh LED lighting engines with BLE mobile app control. more…
We ask the right questions about customer use case, environment, real customer requirements and features, regulations, timeline, budget, marketing goals, and listen to your vision to make sure that the product design reflects your expectations and help you every step of the way from napkin sketch to production and everything in between. more…
