The team assembled at Microprocessor Designs has a wide variety of skills required for embedded product development. To assure your products are developed properly they use a top-down development approach that enables them to tackle even the most difficult problems.

Product development is broken down into phases which include: product definition, system design, hardware design, software/firmware design and the transfer to manufacturing process. They encourage peer review at all critical milestones. They use state of the art tools for product development and documentation yielding designs that are manufacturable worldwide.
