Case Study: Electronic design for Industrial Control Equipment

The challenge: Our client, who requires confidentiality, came to us with a pre-existing product that needed updating in terms of design (due to component obsolescence) and quality, while maintaining exactly the same appearance and functionality. As it was required for a laboratory environment, accuracy and efficiency were also required.

The Solution: RVL’s design engineers studied the original, then redesigned the circuit with modern processors and a new operating system. RVL laid out the PCB in collaboration with the client’s mechanical engineers, and then built prototypes for testing. In close consultation with the client, we also redeveloped the product firmware drivers for Windows CE. Once the rigorous testing was approved, RVL’s IPC-certified technicians built and tested the final sub-assemblies with the option of a touch-screen display. Final box-build assembly of individual units was undertaken by the client.

The benefits: Improved design, increased product life, improved performance, future expandability, improved quality of end product.

  • Sub-assembly redesign and full part selection
  • Re-development of firmware drivers for Windows CE
  • Prototyping & manufacture
  • Final sub-assembly testing
