CDI Blog For Engineers Spotlight on: DESIGN SERVICES Spotlight on: DESIGN SERVICES Spotlight: Design Services  

With a mission to help OEMs accelerate product time-to-market, offers design services tailored to the specific needs of the customer. These services can be as simple as reviewing a customer’s design or as complex as having design a complete product.  After the customer requirements are defined, steps can include component selection or recommendations, block diagram or lineup proposals, schematic capture, simulation, layout, test and tune, as well as prototype and data package delivery.  Outsourcing part of the product design to enables OEMs to accomplish more with limited resources. Gaps in a product design can be more quickly and expertly filled.

The engineering lab is fully outfitted with the equipment and software necessary to take your design requirements and turn them into a fully functioning and tested prototype. Combined with our experience in RF circuit and system design, embedded firmware, and digital and analog circuit design, capabilities include high power RF test and measurement, Spice and RF simulation, and both PCB and mechanical design. The team has relationships with US and offshore manufacturing partners to provide populated PCBs, sub-assemblies, and automated software for final test solutions.

Design Services Example #1 – Lineup Simulation with Keysight ADS
