Library management and Component Creation

We offer an in-depth library management service and can tailor it to your requirement. Sometimes tight deadlines mean you can't afford to spend time making component parts, footprints or mechanical representations. This is where we can step in and help. With our experience we will speed up your library creation process allowing you to concentrate on more relevant tasks.

Schematic Capture

We pride ourselves on the quality of our schematic entry. We are fully versed in flat level or hierarchical schematic entry. We believe that well laid-out and documented schematics will save time and reduce possible problems.


Design Outputs:

Depending on the service you have requested, we will create a complete design output package that will include all or some of the following, as required:

We can also create custom outputs and reports tailored to your needs.

Reverse Engineer

We can take in Gerber files or a bare/populated boards and create a fully functioning PCB Design. They then can be modified to design out EMC problems, component obsolescence or add new features to your design.
