EST provides design services to address Complex Electronic and System level designs with System Integration and Testing. EST’s Design Services can either participate in the product development cycle by lending expertise in various parts of the design or conduct the entire product development process to customer specifications. EST can also contribute to the product development by providing design for manufacturing (DFM) and design for testability (DFT) reviews along with comprehensive manufacturing test strategies

The technologies covered by EST include analog, digital, and mixed-signal circuits using complex devices including CPLDs, FPGAs, ASICs and Optical devices with a strong emphasis on Surface Mount Technology. EST can provide System Architecture design, as well as Software Development for real-time embedded firmware. Previous designs have included a wide range of board types including PCI, CompactPCI, VME, PCMCIA, USB, and various adaptors.
EST Design Services provides expert FPGA, hardware and software designs. Specializing in FPGA design and development, we provide complete system-level solutions from concept to production.

Services include:

  • Full turnkey FPGA system-level design
  • IP Development
  • FPGA Embedded Processor Subsystems (PowerPC, Microblaze)
  • HDL Design
  • Simulation and Test

The cycle would start with a clear understanding of the Specifications, Budgets, Schedule, Unit Cost Targets and Concept and Feasibility studies. Design Reviews are conducted at various stages of the Product Design along with considerations for Design for Manufacturability and Testability.
The deliverables include a full set of ISO 9001:2000 and WEEE/RoHS compliant Design Documentation and Prototypes:
  • The PCB layout design file
  • Back annotated schematic
  • BOM Analysis and creation (Component Engineering)
  • Gerber files
  • The Fabrication drawing set
  • The Assembly drawing set
  • The Mechanical Drawings
  • Built-In Self Tests
  • Flying Probe or In-Circuit Test programs and fixtures
  • Functional Tests
  • Driver and Communications Protocol Software Design
  • Systems Integration Documentation

The service includes transitioning a product from prototype or small scale production levels to large scale manufacturing.
