Hardware

From a circuit diagram to a fully realized PCB: Solectrix offers all services related to hardware design.


 

Depending on your needs we can take care of design, layout, verification, and even small series in-house production. We’ve worked on everything from simple I/O adapter boards to powerful control units for complex modular industrial systems, implementing state-of-the art processors and microcontrollers (ARM, Cortex, PowerPC).

Today’s demands for high-speed I/O mean that signal integrity cannot be taken for granted. Profit from our experience with high-speed memory interfaces (DDR2, DDR3…), high-speed I/O like PCI Express® 3.x (up to 8 Gbit/s per lane) and SerDes design at up to 12.5 Gbit/s. We use tools like Mentor Graphics HyperLynx to simulate complex multi-board systems and ensure signal integrity.
