OUR DESIGN PROCESS

CONCEPT
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.

CIRCUIT 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.

PCB 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
Software design is performed using the most appropriate methodology for the project. Following design, most software is coded using C, using professional toolchains. 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
Simple designs can be prototyped in-house or outsourced taking into account the customer’s requirements and budget.

TESTING
Functionality is initially tested against the specification on the bench, typically followed by a handover to the customer for testing under operational conditions.

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.

ACCREDITATIONS

In recognition of his knowledge and expertise in PCB design, Paul Maisey, Business Manager of Sorion Developments is a qualified IPC Certified Interconnect Designer. This qualification is an objective evaluation of core competencies in design based upon industry standards rather than specifications of just one company.
