Ionocom - Other Design

Keywords: Test Equipment, electronic design

Ionocom offers specification and design of automatic test systems for characterising designs in engineering, and supporting them in production.

We have designed systems ranging from simple, self-contained "go/no-go" test boxes through to computer-automated systems including GPIB-controlled test equipment and custom test jigs. We are familiar with conventional and graphical programming environments for computer control of test systems.

Ionocom offers mechanical design of simple piece-parts associated with PCBs such as brackets and heat-sinks, custom displays, moulded keypads and other electro-mechanical items and front panels. We can also generate drawings for customisation of off-the-shelf enclosures.

Where more extensive and sophisticated design is needed (such as for custom-tooled enclosures) clients typically engage an Industrial Design firm to do the work. We are used to working closely with industrial designers to perform electronic design and mechanical design concurrently. We can introduce clients to suitable local Industrial Design firms where required.

Ionocom - Capabilities

We have a workshop area equipped with a small vertical mill and various other tools that allow us to fabricate small mechanical piece parts and to machine enclosures for prototypes. Ionocom is well-equipped to conduct most design and development work with a comprehensive set of digital, base-band and RF test equipment. We have facilities to produce prototype units, including leaded and surface mount assembly equipment.

Ionocom - PCB Design

Our experience ranges from single-sided boards designed for absolute minimum cost to high-performance multi-layer boards with power and ground planes designed for RF. Analog circuits where careful attention to routing and grounding is required to reduce noise and interference. We use OrCAD for maintenance of existing designs and for projects where clients prefer these tools.

Ionocom - Software Development

Firmware is embedded software that is a permanent part of the product, typically stored in Flash memory and usually performing low-level functions that directly control the hardware. We have experience with 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers from suppliers such as Microchip, Texas Instruments, Rabbit and Atmel, and industry-standard parts such as the 8051.
