What we do
Expertise in advanced manufacturing
Cost-effective and rapid prototyping
Brainstorm and dedicated consultations
We typically work with fabric-based and flexible substrate materials. Examples are knitted, non-knitted, and non-woven textiles with a focus on synthetic and semi-synthetic fibers. In addition, we provide an expert grasp on traditional electronic materials such as a range of conductive and insulating plastics and sheet metal materials.
We provide basic design and assembly of electronic components, primarily leveraging recent advances in battery technology and RF communication such as Bluetooth >4.0. PCB design is almost a dark art, so we try our best to provide as much initial support in creating foot prints and reusable components to lower the activation barrier.
We are pioneers in fabricating flexible substrates in either thin sheet or fabric form. Therefore we provide expert handling and placement of sensors typically not usable for non-flexible or 2D geometries. This means we can provide creative ideas in designing new sensor architecture for complex geometries otherwise not doable in today's technological landscape.
We realize firmware has gotten to the point of hackiness, where developers are happy with "whatever works". Instead, we are more disciplined and focus on designing modular, state-driven embedded C programming paradigms in order to optimize for performance, maintain code readability, and take full advantage of the microcontroller hardware and its peripherals.
The culmination of material selection, hardware design, sensor architecture, and firmware development, is our ability to quickly iterate and assemble these fragment pieces into a usable and functioning proof of concepts (POV). Our ability to work with each component of the prototyping stage allows us to divide and conquer challenges and quickly bring up questions, pain points, and insights on how this product can scale.
Our objective is to enable end-to-end data communication of your product. Therefore, we have created resuable code and APIs that move data from a sensor, to a communication beacon (i.e. bluetooth), and to a phone or computer. We handle all the difficult and nuisance data processing transactions, and help serve your data on the cloud either using AWS or Google Cloud.
With more projects under our belt, we are working to build out our machine learning capabilities so that we can provide fast and reliable insights for your projects that are dicated by data only. Example projects we have worked on are gait detection, balance detection, exercise categorization and technique analysis, and simpler features such as dynamic signal peak detection and sensor calibration.
We typically engage in joint ventures for large projects and intense involvement, therefore all parties reap the rewards when projects are finalized, and this typically means the birth of new inventions. We have a strong patent success record, and are happy helping you build out your IP portfolio by offering consultation on drafting claims, diagrams, and negotiating office actions with the USPTO.
