Electronic Design Services

Embedded Systems and Applications

Mindteck's Embedded Systems and Applications team has vast experience in providing solutions to our customers to support the product lifecycle with embedded design services, embedded verification and validation services and system solutions. The diagram below shows a snapshot of our  activities.

Embedded Design Services

Mindteck’s embedded design services comprise product engineering support from concept to prototyping and manufacturing of new products, feature enhancement and technology upgradation through electronic hardware design, firmware design, software application development and mechanical design. Our expertise in embedded technology helps our customers with customized product solutions. Additionally, our development methodology supports incremental and requirement discovery models to match both  customer and market expectations.

Hardware Design Services

The embedded design services team supports complete electronic hardware design activities, including  schematic design, bill of material finalization, Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design, prototyping, production support and FPGA design services for customer-specific requirements. The key hardware design ranges from small footprint and power-optimized solutions to high-end, rugged systems built around various embedded processors and DSPs.

Embedded Firmware/Software Services

We offer a broad range of software services relating to embedded systems programming and real-time embedded systems software development, such as:

  • Boot loader
  • Development of board support packages
  • Device drivers
  • Firmware and diagnostics
  • RTOS -VxWorks, Embedded Linux, QNX, WinCE
  • GUI development
  • OS porting
  • Embedded application development
  • Feature enhancements
  • Development and porting of protocol Stack
  • Development of wireless stack

FPGA Design Services

Today, many of the high-speed and complex designs need the integration and flexibility that an FPGA can offer. The ability to be reconfigured enables the FPGAs to extend the lifecycle of a custom product to suit changing market needs. We  have the right experience and capability to satisfy any phase of the product lifecycle including partial or complete architecture design, feature additions to existing designs, test bench development or functional verification.

Our  FPGA services include design/development, RTL coding, test suite preparation, simulation and testing/verification. We provide turnkey development services in FPGA for high-speed bus interfaces, integration of modules, multi-million gates complex design and concept to specification of the chip to the final board level target hardware.

We are also a Design Service Network (DSN) partner with Altera, providing solutions to our customers using IP cores available under this partnership. The value we bring to our customers includes faster solutions with IP cores without any obligation for our customers to buy IP cores, as well as low pricing of FPGA during production stage.

Mechanical Design Services

We address mechanical design requirements for product engineering with 3D modeling and rapid prototyping techniques to provide early user experience during the product development cycle. We also have expertise in re-engineering and teardown analysis for product life extension. With our eco partner, we provide manufacturing and support to complete mechanical engineering requirements for New Product Development (NPD).  Our expertise in tools and customized processes provides reliable, feature-rich products at competitive prices with the least development lead time. Our services also include engineering drawing conversion, industrial design and Man-Machine interface.

Verification and Validation

Verification and Validation (V&V) is essential for validating system functionality. Mindteck's V&V services  evaluate hardware, embedded firmware, mechanical, application firmware and GUI.

We provide an independent and objective measure of applications or a product's performance and quality. Mindteck has expertise in various tools that are required for V&V of embedded systems used across a variety of industries, including Life Sciences, Medical, High-tech and Automotive.

In the V&V space, Mindteck’s offerings range from developing test scripts and delivering system solutions to performing test automation. We are also involved in model-based testing and loop simulation for control modules. Test automation platforms that are built in-house optimize costs for our customers.

V&V services include verification and validation for:

  • Functional and Performance of Hardware/Firmware/Software
  • Automated Testing, Diagnostics and Calibration requirement
  • Predictive Analytics requirement by modeling and simulation

Tools and methodologies include:

  • Hardware-In-Loop simulation (HIL)
  • Customized TestStand
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Customized Test Jigs
  • Python/PERL scripts-based Automated Testing
  • UML-based Simulation
  • LabVIEW/MATLAB/Simulink
  • Third-party Labs for Environmental Tests
