PCB Design

Jitter has over 6 years of experience in designing customized printed circuit boards. We’re specialized in quick turnaround pcb design. Going from requirements to professional prototype in as fast as 4-6 weeks.

The process starts with careful component selection and drawing of the schematic designs. After that, the pcb layout can be started, which consists of strategic component placement and routing of all the required connections. Important issues such as Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electrostatic discharge (ESD) resistance are considered during every step of the process.

The 3D models of the design help tackle mechanical and aesthetical challenges during the design. Will it fit in its enclosure? Can we foresee any conflicts during assembly? Does the board look good?

Sensors

Integrate existing sensors directly into your product or invent new types of sensors for highly specific applications. Sometimes your entire product is considered a sensor. But other times it just has some sensors built-in to ensure proper functioning.

Actuators

Besides sensing, electronic designs often need to control something physical. Take for example a coffee maker. When it determines that the water is hot enough, it will need to pump water through the filter with the right pressure and flow rate. When your system also has sensors, you can base the control system on the sensor measurements. This is called feedback control.

Connectivity

Every device needs to communicate to the outside world in some way. This might be using USB to connect a datalogger directly to your laptop. But it can also be wireless through WiFi or Bluetooth.

Internet of Things devices might use a cellular connection (e.g. 2G or 4G). Low power solutions may use LoRaWAN or DASH7.

Together we will figure out the best choice for your application.

Ultra Low Power

For battery powered devices, nowadays usually internet of things things, a certain battery life is one of the most important requirements. Of course you could just add a bigger battery, but most often trade-offs regarding dimensions and costs have to be considered.

That is why low power designs are becomming very important.

Firmware

Almost every electronic design includes one or more microcontrollers. A microcontroller is a like a miniature computer that controls everything that happens in a electrical circuit. These microcontrollers run their own specialized software, often called firmware.

Firmware is developed as part of the electronic design project. It is usually written in The C Programming Language or the newer Rust.

#[entry]
fn main() -> ! {
    let mut nrf52 = Board::take().unwrap();

    let mut timer = Timer::new(nrf52.TIMER0);

    // Alternately flash the red and blue leds
    loop {
        nrf52.leds.led_2.enable();
        delay(&mut timer, 250_000); // 250ms
        nrf52.leds.led_2.disable();
        delay(&mut timer, 1_000_000); // 1s
    }
}
