Hardware Design

Linux builds the focus of the for hard- and software development services of ARIES Embedded. Our work helps customers saving resources and time which is essential for the implementation of ambitious projects in the world of Embedded Systems.

 

Innovation

Our services help you to add additional expertise, focus on your competence and increase planning certainity. Make your skills more versatile.

  • expand your resources
  • increase flexibility
  • shorten time-to-market
  • reduce cost

Milestones

The fine tuned process management during the entire development project ensures that the final result will match the initial requirements.

  • starting the development process based on the requirement specification, provided by customer or engineered during a first project phase
  • dividing the schedule into milestones
  • design reviews with our customer, the approval of the review of each milestone acts as the kick-off for the subsequent milestone

Pre-Engineering

The pre-engineering work is an important phase during many development projects.  Feature distinction as well as eliminating errors during the early product definition help to develop successful and reliable products. We provide services for

  • consulting
  • feasability studies
  • concept creation

Beside the bare technical topics we provide special know-how on

  • manufacturing
  • testability
  • longevity
  • cost effectivness
  • reliability

Schematics

  • modular designs as well as custom design
  • Microcontroller-  8 to 64 Bit, Multicore,  DSP
  • ARM- Cortex-Mx/A8/A9/A15, ARM7, ARM9, ARM11, Power Architecture, MSP430, PIC, ColdFire, DSP
  • memory: SDRAM, DDR2, DDR3, Mobile DDR, Flash, HDD, SSD, eMMC,  NAND-Flash
  • interface:
    • PCIe, PCI, SATA, PS/2, USB, Firewire, PCMCIA, PCCard, J1850
    • RS232, RS422/485, CAN, DeviceNet, CAN Open, KNX, LON, Ethernet,Sercos, Powerlink, M-Bus, Profibus, Profinet, EtherCAT
  • display: LCD, VFD, STN, TFT
  • touch: resistiv, capacitive, multi-touch
  • wireless: WLAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee, GSM/GPRS, GPS
  • analogue design
  • power supply

 

Layout

The heart of every electronic system consists of a well done PCB. Most modern technology is included in our layouts such as

  • HDI-/Microvia-technology for BGA/µBGA components
  • impedance controlled high speed design for modern differential memory and interface technology, i.e. DDR2, DDR3, PCI Express, RapidIO, LVDS, SATA, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and more
  • flex / flex-rigid PCB
  • analogue design
  • 3D models, optionally including mechanical samples
  • creationof production data, PCB data and the necessary information for test equipment

Deliverables

Correct and complete deliverables are the basis for a correct, reliable and replicable product. To ensure that the product can be manufactured, maintained and improved during it entire lifetime, we provide the following deliverables:

  • CAD-data for schematics and layout
  • schematics, layout-plan, layers as pdf-files
  • production data as text files
  • Gerberdata (Extended Gerber including drill-data, PCB-datasheet and panel-drawing)

Post-Engineering

After finished the real development process still there are many tasks to be done until the final product can be marketed.  We help customers  to obtain the results of

  • design validation
  • qualification with regard to
    • EMC
    • temperature
    • mechanical shock and vibration
  • ceritifcation
  • development of test equipment
