We are ready to support you at any project stage. We can perform tasks related to the development and manufacturing of electronics (creation of an enclosure design and structure, development of software for finished hardware platforms, etc.), or undertake to perform all tasks in the development of an electronic product on a turn-key basis, from the preparation of specifications to launching into production.
Used in almost all electronic products, Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) route signals and power between various physical devices using conductive tracks, pads and other features. These are etched on copper sheets, which are then laminated onto a substrate. PCBs came about as the need for a compact, cost-effective solution for the burgeoning electronics market grew. Replacing older methods prone to frequent short circuits and failures, nowadays PCBs are designed with dedicated layout software such as PADS or other CAD software, laying out the circuit to best suit the electronic product being developed. Single-sided PCBs have copper attached to just one side of the substrate, with copper traces on one side, and electrical parts and components on the other. Double-Sided PCBs include copper and other parts and components on both sides of the substrate. Often used in complex electronic circuits, multi-layer PCBs can have layers ranging in number from 4 to over 42, separated by insulation. The conductors on these layers are connected with plated through holes known as ‘Vias’. The soldermask is what gives the PCB its common green colour that makes it so recognisable. This is used to insulate the copper layers underneath, protecting it from contact with other solders, conductive pieces and metals. This layer also has the solder points printed on it, acting much like a map to ensure soldering is carried out in the correct spots. The final layer of the PCB is the silkscreen, applied to the soldermask. This adds important information like letters, numbers and symbols that aid in assembly. This layer also helps those who look at the board to understand its functions and connections, and are often referred to in the PCB’s design documents and manuals. At the beginning we analyze the project and identify the characteristics of the electronic system that we need to create. This preliminary phase allows us to accurately establish development times and costs as well as verify first-hand the project's compliance with needs and budget. We design the layout of the electronic board, the interconnections, defining the best construction technology. We also formalize the list of components, the diagram of the electronic printed circuit and the routing of the tracks (Gerber file), in order to guarantee the perfect functioning of the board.
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is "the combination of a hardware device, e.g. an integrated circuit, and computer instructions and data that reside as read only software on that device". Power Engineering SRL is able to provide firmware design and developemnt for the most updated platforms such as AVR, PIC, STM32 / ARM Cortex-M, MCS51. We offer a start to finish approach to firmware. Microcontrollers are a vital piece in the electronic design and development puzzle, made up of a number of components you’re likely familiar with: a processor, memory, timers and some form of input/output. These parts are all combined on a single integrated circuit, at times as small as a grain of rice! As opposed to desktop computers, Microcontrollers are dedicated, embedded devices, used for a specific task or program. Their small form factor and relatively powerful processing capabilities makes them commonplace in a diverse range of devices, from interfacing with your TV remote to operating your microwave oven. Once limited to the realms of electronic design and development professionals, there are now thousands of varieties available on the market. Once limited to the realm of electronic design and development professionals, there are now thousands of varieties available on the market. Our company, with its consolidated experience in the firmware development sector, is able to develop from scratch the entire set of instructions capable of extracting the most from the component, guaranteeing it an extended life and performance always in line with specifications.
