The following are examples of embedded electronic design projects that we have completed for our customers.
Nelevation is a small start-up company with an innovative solution for the storage and manipulation of model railway trains called the Nelevator. While Nelevation had concept product and mechanical designs, they needed assistance with the electronic aspects of their project to help make their design a reality.
Silicon Bay designed all of the control electronics (hardware and firmware) for their products, as well as a suite of production diagnostic and programming tools for the PC, Linux and Android platforms.
Origin Product Design Limited
Safe Sleep Seat
Origin Product Design is a product design consultancy focusing on bespoke product design solutions for commercial, domestic, industrial and medical and pharmaceutical market sectors since 1995.
With their specialisations laying more in product and mechanical design, Origin turned to Silicon Bay when they needed a quick embedded electronic control solution for a project (the Safe Sleep Seat) they were working on with very tight schedules.
The project was to adapt a baby car seat with a motorised tilt mechanism to allow a parent to recline the car seat by remote control when the child is sleeping.
The electronic design had to control a DC motor from an 18 V battery with RF remote control, battery status monitoring and positional feedback.
In just 4 weeks the electronic design had to be completed, PCBs manufactured, populated and tested and firmware written, prior to final assembly and testing in time for an important product demonstration at a trade show.
