Electronic Design Capabilities 

PDI triumphs with over 30 years of experience designing for industrial ordinary or hazardous locations, limit controls, police/emergency vehicles, security systems, non-patient contact medical, and much more. PDI is always on the cutting edge of technology developing products to incorporate ZigBee, WiFi, Bluetooth, MiWi, Wireless mesh, NFC, OTA programming, LORA, and other IoT technology. We utilize the most advanced tools in the market to create and deliver the highest quality solutions to our customers.

Schematic Design / PCB layout

Our Electrical Design Services include assigning an Engineering Program Manager to your account.  We will work closely with you and your team to define your scope of work, key requirements and timeline. We'll then provide you with a quoted project plan that will include milestones and dates to bring your project from a concept through a design for manufacturability stage. If you need things expedited or timelines compressed, our experienced team can support you and is dedicated to your success!  

Electronic circuit board design services include technology research/development as required, schematic design, bill of materials development, PCB layout, 3D modeling, packaging, production tooling/fixtures/programming, testing, 3rd party testing/certifications and pricing/lead times for prototypes through production level quantities.

Embedded Software Development

PDI's embedded software development expertise is based on our team's collective experience and from the hundreds of embedded designs completed through the years.  As a benefit to our customers, we have the ability to quote and deliver programs with shorter development times and lower costs.

PDI has extensive experience with the following processors and compilers:

Processors: PIC(32, 16, 18), TI, MSP430, ATMEL, ARM CORTEX-M3, SAM3S, CYPRESS, PSOC5LP, PSOC4, ARM CORTEX-M0, NXP COLDFIRE, HCS08

Compilers:  IAR, MPLAB C32, XC8, ATMEL STUDIO, PSOC CREATOR

Automation and Test

Production level testing/validation can be a complex and sometimes expensive part of your program. PDI is committed to supporting you with the capabilities of developing the most reliable and cost-effective testing solution for your products. Moreover, this is an area where PDI partners closely with clients who can provide some or all of the functional testing equipment to help reduce development costs. 

All PDI test stands are built and supported with our in-house engineering resources.  Test stands contain embedded circuitry to automate the testing process and designed to confirm 100% device functionality. 

Additional Services include:

  • Custom electronic housing/packaging design
  • Product technical support
  • Design/Manufacturing for RoHs compliance or Lead Solder assemblies
  • Low volume manufacturing support for prototypes, beta units and production part approval process (PPAP).
  • IoT and App development.

PDI has successfully launched hundreds of embedded designs including:

  • Cryogenic freezers
  • Interface to Wireless Hart
  • Industrial humidifier controls
  • High-speed PC docking stations for police and fire
  • Data loggers with Web interface
  • PID loop temperature controllers
  • Ruggedized hub and Ethernet converter for the automotive industry
  • Security fencing alarms
  • Motor starter for heavy equipment
  • Primary and rechargeable cell (Battery) operated test devices.
  • Incorporate wireless capabilities into new and existing designs
