Performance and cost of the design for manufacturing and assembly are mainly based on the PCB design and how the design rules for manufacturing have been applied during the design phase.

When we speak about electronics product design and development, design and manufacturing are considered separate processes. However, these processes should be regarded as a single process with a feedback loop back to the designer. This is how development should be considered to make competitive, fast-to-market, and low-cost products.

A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing, hence the term field-programmable.

FPGA offers a wide range of functions, such as networking and routing processors, communication processors, and image and video processors. At ALTER we have a design area with extensive experience in the Digital Microelectronic world, providing high-performance customized solutions for all kinds of needs. Our know-how includes designs for Rad-Hard environments such as automotive and aerospace sectors

As a complement to the electronic design, sometimes it is also needed to design the housing or enclosure where the electronics board is going to be placed. The housing could be plastic or metal housing. Each material has proper design techniques and tools modules. ALTER design engineers’ expertise covers several materials and fabrication processes to provide the customer with the complete design package for electronics and mechanical parts.

Most electronic assemblies contain a programmable device like a microcontroller, FPGA, etc… These devices simplify the electronic design as they replace thousands of discrete parts needed to fulfill the function required by the specifications. The firmware programming process usually starts after the programmable device has been chosen by the customer or by the engineering team through a programming evaluation board; later on, once the electronics design has been built, the code needs to be tested in the electronics assembly for final acceptance. ALTER’s engineering team has a vast experience in Firmware design using C++, Java, and Python.

The Printed Circuit Board PCB is the substrate where all the components and connections of our design are laid out. It is unique for each design, and it needs to be redesigned (most of the time) if any change in the schematics occurs.

It plays the most important role in any given design. It is not only the part holding the components and connections among them but also has a direct relationship to the cost of the design, manufacturability, testability, functionality, and qualification of the design.

ALTER has a work team with extensive experience in low and mid-Power Electronics Design for power conversion and motor control. This know-how includes DC/DC converters and DC/AC single-phase and three-phase converters. We manage a wide variety of topologies depending on needs, such as Buck, Boost, Flyback, and H-Bridge converters with high-frequency planar transformers. We engineer resonant topologies too, such as ZVS and ZCS.

Our knowledge allows us to advise our customers and offer customized solutions to meet their needs.

RF design is a very particular field when speaking about electronic design. Amplifiers, frequency converters, mixers, oscillators, filters, and antennas… are basic function blocks in RF systems. An excellent understanding of material properties and parasitic elements is key to RF circuit design properly. At High Frequencies, any component or piece of copper parasitic characteristic will affect the circuit performance.

Electronic Design software we use

  • Altium Designer for Schematics and PCB design

PCB design SW combines design and simulation, including schematics capture and PCB design.

  • Inventor Autodesk for Mechanical Integration.

Mechanical design SW is used to design, simulate and document all kinds of parts in 3d modeling.
