Adept Electronic Solutions (AES) specializes in the design, validation and support of electronic and optical devices. We are experts in rapid development and have an in-depth understanding of what it takes to bring complex, high-quality products designed to withstand harsh environments to market.
We excel at developing sophisticated devices that adhere to industry standards while getting to market on-time and within budget. With capabilities that go beyond a schematic and a printed circuit board, AES delivers a complete solution to meet your development, quality assurance, and business needs.
AES brings proven experience in all aspects of the design and implementation process including:
- Analog and Digital Design
We excel at designing and testing both analog and digital designs. We have the equipment to verify the functionality of nearly any design. We have additional partner companies that we work with to solve any problems that may be outside of our area of expertise.
- Embedded and PC-based Programming
Embedded and PC based programming requires both programming expertise and the hardware to verify the design. We offer both. Most of our customers require that we not only design the system, but also perform a complete verification (temperature or humidity, or both).
- Precision Data Acquisition and Control
The equipment that AES has on hand can meet nearly any customer’s needs. In the event that we cannot meet the specific needs, we have associates that we can collaborate with to make sure that the job will get done correctly.
- EMC (Electro-Magnetic Compatibility) Testing and Design
For over 15 years, we have been designing hardware for harsh environments. All of our hardware is designed to be hardened to survive in some of the harshest environments. This includes high voltage labs, high voltage substations, large long wall mines and lime stone mines.
- Schematic Capture and PCB Layout
We excel at rapidly designing circuit boards. All of our boards are designed with manufacturing in mind. We always provide our customers with a complete design package. This includes the schematic, the PCB layout and the design files necessary for fabrication.
- 3D and 2D CAD Design/Documentation
Mechanical design is part of any product development. We have the systems in place to do both 2D and 3D documentation of our customers.
