Electronics product design - initial conceptCONCEPT
If you have a full technical specification we can provide a quotation or if your product idea is still germinating we can work with you to explore and capture your requirements to a specification document.

Electronics product design - circuit designCIRCUIT DESIGN
Translating your requirements/specifications into electronic functional circuit design to serve your unique needs. Our extensive experience enables us to provide an innovative and pragmatic approach to deliver appropriate solutions.

Printed circuit board (PCB) layoutPCB LAYOUT
In addition to laying out PCBs for circuits that we have designed, we routinely perform PCB layout work for customers’ own designs. These are of varying complexity, from boards providing simple connectivity through to complex high density multilayer surface mount designs.

software development for electronic productSOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
Software design is performed using the most appropriate methodology for the project. The source code which has been written specifically for the project becomes the property of and is handed over to the customer at the end of the project, so your investment in intellectual property is safe and portable.

Prototyping - Electronic Product DesignPROTOTYPING
Simple designs can be prototyped in-house or we can work with trusted specialist suppliers for more complex designs.
Once prototypes are available they are subject to design validation testing both initially and during the process of software development.

TESTING
Functionality is initially tested against the specification on the bench, typically followed by a handover to the customer for testing under operational conditions.
We can also provide support to the conformance testing process at external test houses.

PRODUCTION HANDOVER
Finally when the product is signed off, all the necessary files are passed over for production. Sorion can provide support for setup and test of production units.
