Semi-Custom Devices

Where a project may be limited due to budget, timescale or volumes required, we can offer quick and effective solutions based on already existing semi-custom devices. Readily available modules or building blocks which reflect very closely your requirements and normally require only slight modification to satisfy your needs. Currently available are GPS data-logging and tracking modules and our Solderable Memory Module (SMM) which can be used to replace standard memory cards in harsh or extreme environments.

GPS Data Logger (OEM)

Use of standalone products in the form of car navigation systems, portable navigation devices and smart phones have established themselves as part of our daily routine. However new applications are driving the demand for custom devices. Unfortunately low volumes and relatively high costs associated with the development of a complete GPS system are somewhat cost prohibitive. Using our extensive knowledge & experience of GPS systems, we have developed an OEM GPS Data-Logger as a standard module.

This module can be modified for a fraction of the cost of a full system development to satisfy the majority of requirements using different power sources, sensors, actuators, communication interfaces, or even as a display as part of a semi custom solution.

Solderable Memory Module (SMM)

An elegant solution for industrial and medical applications providing a compact memory module with an electrical SD / MMC interface which is soldered directly onto a printed circuit board. With it's small form factor of 24 x 20 mm2 and a pitch of only 1.27 mm, it is significantly smaller than a standard SD / MMC card, has less demands on board design and can be used wherever space considerations are critical.

SMM is the ideal choice for embedded systems in extremely demanding applications and environments and with its controlled Bill of Material (BOM) problems resulting from hardware and firmware changes to the NAND Flash controller are now a thing of the past. Customised functions such as password protection, emergency deletion etc. can also be realised.
