We have premises with a certified ISO-Class-7 Cleanroom / Assembly and Test area, an ISO-Class-8 Laboratory both complete with full ESD safe working areas. We have invested heavily in the high tech equipment needed for aerospace and have the following in house resources:  

Electronic Test Equipment: Keysight Vector Network Analysers to 44GHz (vector mixer + non-linear options), Keysight Spectrum analysers to 44GHz, Keysight Signal Generators to 44GHz, Power Supplies, Oscilloscopes, Modelling Computers, Keysight Microwave Power Sensor DC-40GHz, RF cables, adapters, TDR measurement equipment, various antennas and calibration references.  

Manufacturing: Thermal Temperature Test Chamber (-45C to +180C), Vapor Phase Reflow Oven, IR BGA Surface Mount Rework Station, Solder Print Station, Thermal Camera, Solder Stations (hot air, infrared, Metcal irons), Hot Plate, Microscopes, High Resolution Imaging Camera, Cable stripping machine, ultra-sonic cleaner, compressed air system. We have just invested in humidity and temperature controlled storage, all electronic parts and products are stored at less than 1% humidity and temperature controlled environment. 

Software: Altium Designer (PCB) & Solidworks Professional CAD tools. Data Analytics, Automated Test Tools

Our business model thrives around helping you achieve your goals. We can provide some basic design support or go all the way and Design / Manufacture / Test / Deliver a completely custom product. We can provide the following levels of support:

1. Minor help and consultancy – small problems.
2. Deliver part of a design for you to be integrated into your own solution.
3. Design, Manufacture and Test a complete prototype for you.
4. Design, Manufacture, Test, Qualify and Production manufacture a series of products providing integration support.
5. Perform a full environmental test campaign; for example, thermal, vibration, shock, radiation – full space solutions for design, test and assembly.

Our knowledge and expertise provides clients with access to the latest technology, ensuring market differentiation and successful product application. Our specialist knowledge means we can assess the capacity of current or future technologies and manage the requirement needs of a product to ensure longevity. We have five principle application areas which we can pull together to develop your ideas. If you have a requirement to use our facilities, whether it be cleanroom assembly, thermal test, BGA/QFN solder rework, production of hardware, CNC machining service and EMC/Gasket production please get in touch.  We have the capability to add RF magnetic absorber and shielding gaskets into large volumes of metalwork. 

Radio Frequency: We have developed our own approach to RF engineering.  The days when higher operating frequencies needed the budgets of multinationals are gone and we have key knowledge to allow us to do just enough to guarantee design performance without over engineering. We know how to design with complex exotic pcb layer stacks, produce metalwork with RF shielding and guarantee RF performance.

Antenna Development and Measurement: We have a huge amount of experience in the design of antennas. We understand the exact trade-offs which need to be made and can build antennas tailored for most application requirements.

Electronic Systems Development: We have a history of building complex electronics, from multi-layer FR4 boards with BGAs and blind vias through to complex build Rogers/FR4 stacks.

Mechanical and PCB design: Beautiful electronics requires beautiful enclosures and mechanics to compliment it. We are highly experienced at optimising the best mechanics for your application.

Space Qualification: We can qualify products for flight by running environmental test campaigns. We have a great deal of experience with Thermal (vacuum, air), Vibration, Shock, EMC, Analysis mechanical and thermal, automated testing for space and industrial qualification. We have also run radiation testing campaigns in particle accelerators such as UCL and GSI.

We have trusted colleagues and partner companies and when required we can add to our own capability in the following areas: Radiation Analysis, Parts Materials and Process Analysis, Vibration and Thermal Vacuum Test, Mechanical and Thermal Stress Analysis.

All our operators are IPC Certified and can release, inspect and assemble to IPC Class 3.
