Design Services

SDS provides the level of service you need to bring your product to market.  Our staff and network of design engineers have years of experience successfully designing and manufacturing complex embedded products.  Please call today to see what we can do for you.

Turn-Key Product Design

Are you a small company with a great idea but no design staff?  Call Summit Design Services to discuss how we can help.  SDS will work with you to flesh out your ideas.  We'll tackle the difficult problems of technical feasibility, and estimate all of the costs of developing and manufacturing your product.  We'll work with component vendors and manufacturers to get you the best pricing.  SDS will provide you with a complete, packaged product, ready to ship.   Leveraging our experience will allow you to avoid the costs associated with building a technical staff and allow you to focus on the other critical needs of your company.

Hardware Design

SDS is experienced in all facets of hardware design, from system architecture to detailed circuit design, to chassis and industrial design.  Our network of engineers use state-of-the-art tools and proven design methodologies to insure that your requirements are met and quality results are achieved.  The services we offer include, but are not limited to:
  • System Architecture and Requirements Definition
  • Digital Board Design - High Speed, Embedded microprocessors, DSP
  • Analog Board Design - RF, Power, Data Acquisition, Displays
  • PCB Design, including High Density HDI, Rigid-Flex
  • High-speed Digital Simulation
  • Wireless - BLE, WiFi, LoRa
  • Industrial design - Enclosures, Sheet Metal, Molded Plastics
  • Factory Test Station Design
  • Cable and Interconnect Design
  • Test Fixture Design and Assembly
  • Software Development Platform Design & Assembly
SDS uses state of the art CAD tools to support electrictronic and PCB designs, and has expertise with the following:
  • Altium Designer     Altium Designer - Our preferred tool set, simply because it is the best we have used over the years
  • EagleCAD

Embedded Firmware / Software Design

Getting the most out of embedded designs takes a special type of software engineer.   Our staff and network of highly skilled software engineers are experienced at implementing embedded solutions in complex hardware, optimizing code, and designing reliable software.  At SDS, we pride ourselves in the ability of our software engineers to find creative solutions to our customer's problems.  

Some of the services we offer include
  • System Architecture and Requirements Definition
  • Microcontroller Development - ex: Microchip  / Atmel, Texas Instruments, ST Micro
  • 8/16/32/64 bit Microprocessor Development - ex: ARM, Intel, NXP
  • DSP Development - ex: Texas Instruments, Analog Devices
  • Microcode optimization
  • Driver Development
  • Embedded Test Development

FPGA & Programmable Logic Design

Programmable logic is becoming ubiquitous in embedded designs.  The benefits are many but come at a cost.  A poorly designed FPGA is neither efficient in terms of power & space, nor is it reliable.  Summit Design Services provides design services for simple to complex FPGAs, PLDs, and other programmables.   We understand the challenges associated with programmable design and have the experience to provide optimized, reliable solutions for your product.

We specialize in the following
  • FPGA / PLD design - ex: Xilinx, Altera, Lattice, Atmel, Actel
  • Programmable Clock  Drivers
  • Programmable Power Controllers
  • Test Bench Design & Simulation
  • Factory Programming Systems
