Electronic systems design
We can design electronic systems ranging from bespoke one-offs to items intended for quantity production. We specialise in RF and analogue circuitry including antennas, wideband preamplifiers, signal processing and conditioning, power supplies and EMC. We have been heavily involved with the design and assessment of OEM items for vehicle manufacturers in Europe and the USA.
We have considerable experience in professional and high-end audio design and assessment. We can assess products for commercial viability, make market recommendations and advise on how best to achieve cost-effective sales results.
Analogue and RF engineering design and assessment
We can assess the design of almost any item of consumer and professional electronic equipment and advise on suitability for mass production. We can also assess one-off or small-quantity designs for specialist purposes, especially in the military and professional sphere. We know how to be discreet.
Product test and assessment
Factory and process assessment
We know the good factories and we also know the ones to avoid. We can advise on component and material sourcing, make factory and process assessments and report as required.
Technical writing and editing
We can write and edit any product-related literature. We specialise in user handbooks, service manuals, technical supplements and associated feature articles for press and PR purposes. We can also write and edit longer publications if required; our mainstream output is in electronics but aviation-related literature is also a speciality.
Investigative technical journalism
Our services have been sought in several high- and low-profile technical investigations for newspapers and broadcasters. These included ‘Squidgygate’ and ‘Camillagate’. More recently we have been involved in various interesting areas including what has come to be known as ‘phone hacking’ and the problems of the Downing Street switchboard...
Forensic and expert-witness investigation and reporting
We have been involved in several legal cases requiring forensic electronic expertise. Two required appearances as expert witnesses in the USA and another is currently on-going.
