PCB Design Services
Our pcb design services provide electronic solutions to save you money
and improve your products capability and reliability, by including
the latest electronic technology within our pcb design. Let us supply the technology for you to be the market
leader within your business sector.
Circad Design Limited is a pcb design company, designing and supplying
bespoke electronic solutions to a wide range of businesses in a
variety of industries across the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA
since 2000 from our facility in Ipswich Suffolk.
But we are more than just a pcb design company. When off the shelf products simply cannot meet your requirements,
Circad can offer a bespoke tailor made electronic solution,
designed and developed to your specification. We make integrating
electronics into your product easy. From concept through pcb layout design and
prototyping to full manufacture and test, we will manage the
whole process completely from within our factory.
Discuss your product concept with our team in confidence,
and under NDA if required, to explore its feasibility. We will
then produce a development proposal outlining the concept
of operation, agreeable project milestones with all
associated costs and time scales.
Customers wishing to explore the viability of a potential
product can take advantage of our ability to quickly and cost
effectively explore a basic concept complete with prototype pcb design. This will enable
us to provide an estimated product cost should the
development go ahead.
First, your product will require a full schematic pcb design, including a
number of different features:
The power supply may be AC mains or DC low voltage. The
product may be low cost or high performance. We have already designed hundreds of different types of
power supply and have the pcb layout design for whatever is required, which takes into consideration all environmental,
legislative, power and budget requirements.
Product functionally may be controlled by simple logic gates or a
Microprocessor, it may even require an integrated processor in an
FPGA. Our engineers have many years experience of digital
design using microprocessors from all leading manufacturers
including ARM, Atmel, Cypress, Microchip and NXP. We also
specialise in FPGA / CPLD development using VHDL with Altera
and Xilinx. Whatever is the right product to do the job, we will
incorporate it into our pcb design layout.
Whatever protocols your product needs to communicate with the
outside world will be included in the pcb design. Our engineers have a
wealth of experience with most of them including TCP/IP, USB, DALI,
RS232, RS485, ZIGBEE, ASK , FSK, TFT, PS/2, Bluetooth, LCD,
LED, Touch Screens, and Android ADB. Our development team will
be able to advise on the best protocol and seamlessly integrate it into
your product design.
Once the schematic design is complete using industry standard EDA
tools, it moves seamlessly into the integrated pcb
layout design software. Your products physical restrictions and
interconnections along with manufacturability are all taken into
account by the pcb designer during this design phase.
Now we are ready to produce a prototype or pre-
production batch of your product. These assembled
boards are used to validate the hardware design and to
start developing the necessary firmware.
Our firmware development experience encompasses
numerous languages and environments including
Assembler, C, C++, and JAVA. The language used
depends on the processor and application. Usually a low
cost processor having a simple repetitive task could be
developed in assembler and a more complex system with
large data storage would use C++ on a higher end
You may also require a PC or Android application to
communicate with your product and display information.
Our software development team will produce your
software using C#, C++ or JAVA depending on the
