Electronic Design and Consultancy

As Engineers with different experiences, expertise and tools, we realised that between us we have lots to offer to almost any Electronics project. By joining together as Dotstar Design, we have the capabilities to help at any stage of a project. We can take on complete projects or help you to complete one. Maybe you have technical problems that we can help you to solve, or perhaps need more resources to help to get the project completed. We could even be your complete Electronics department if that is what you need. With experience that includes Digital and Analogue hardware, firmware and software, we can help with complex or simple projects including specification, design, production and test. Because we have our own PCB layout tools, Signal Integrity simulator, production and test equipment we do not need to sub-contract those project phases - helping to keep the costs and time-scales to a minimum.
See below for some examples of expertise and projects we can tackle:
Power supplies are an integral part of any circuit, however providing sufficient power without introducing lots of noise provides many challenges.
Many designs use ADCs or DACs, avoiding commong pitfals and optimising your design for the correct parameters are very important to get the best performance for your application.
With so many different power supplies required for modern electronic designs producing a simple and reliable method for controlling, sequencing and monitoring voltages levels and current consumption can be a challenge.

Capabilities We Offer
Look below for the different services we can provide for you. We are able to tailor our capabilities to your needs giving you exactly what you need.

System Specification and Design

We can work with your specification or help you to find the solution to your problem. With that we can work with you to design a system to meet your needs.

Schematic Capture

We are able to provide schematic capture and design capabilites using the full GOLD version of CADSTAR 12. Once the design is captured in CADSTAR we can quickly move forward into PCB layout.

PCB Layout and Simulations

With the CADSTAR 12 Gold package we can undertake PCB layout for any design from the simplest single sided boards up to the most complicated multilayer boards with 16+ layers. Using Signal Integrity Verify (SIV) we can then run simulations to assess the signal integrity of the design.

PCB Manufacture and Assembly

Using our experience working with PCB manufacturers and our in-house assembly tools we are able to provide manufacture and assembly services. By using a vapour phase reflow process we can achieve reliable, quick and affordable low volume manufacture of single boards right through to volume manufacture.

Software and FPGA Development

With years of experience developing software for a multitude of different applications we can provide the software or firmware that you need to solve your problems. Whether this is for the simplest embedded systems with the smallest microcontroller, high speed signal processing in the largest FPGAs or complex multithreaded software in multi-core systems we are here to help.
