Value

Outsourcing allows you to gain all of the benefits of our experience and extensive tool set, while avoiding the high costs of developing these resources in-house.

Examples of Electronic Design

System Engineering Process

An organized approach, with disciplined focus naturally evolves and improves.  Documentation and visibility optimize progress and accountability.

Our chief engineer honed his systems engineering process while working for General Dynamics.  These folks build nuclear submarines … their systems engineering is so impressive, perhaps they invented it?

Bozeman electronic design

Established 2005

We have been providing our electronic design expertise since 2005. Clients are here in the U.S.A., Europe & Asia. Our feasible solutions utilize proven technologies. We moved our electronic design labs to Bozeman, Montana in 2013.

Electronic design is an exciting creative process that requires specialty tools and broad technical knowledge.

For the 3D mechanical design of the product housing we prefer Salient Technologies.  They provide comprehensive design capabilities across many industries.  Their designers make it look simple, and are an absolute joy to work with on challenging projects.

Meet the Founder

Bozeman Electronic Designer

Mark Franklin

Chief Engineer

Founder, published inventor and award-winning electronics designer will help you realize your greatest product dreams.

Mark’s education and experience specialty is electronic design.  This
includes 5000 Volt test system electronics, as well as precise signal processing of nano Volts.

Much of his work has been developing electronics and probes for non-destructive inspection of materials and aerospace structures.

He particularly likes those opportunities that require that a solution be developed using electronics. 

Publications

This first link summarizes the successful proof-of-concept delivery & presentation to NASA Langley of a system demonstrating the ability to detect aerostructure damage and prioritized healing in flight.  The presentation received a standing ovation by 40 NASA engineers.

The second paper summarizes the successful proof-of-concept delivery of a non-destructive inspection electronic device that could detect surface and sub-surface cracks at the 25 nose-to-tail lap joints of a Boeing 737.  This advanced electric design included a probe that utilized a GMR sensor and a custom induction circuit.  It worked much like the common stud finder.  Simply slide the probe along the joint, and the LED bargraph display would indicate the degree of the crack.
