Electronics Development for Sensors and Instruments

Our Purpose

Since 1992, we have assisted companies with electronics and software development for their instrument, smart sensor, and technical applications.  Our services include electronic hardware and sensor design and packaging, software development, prototype development, and manufacturing. Our goal is to enhance our client's ability to create new products and applications by having a dedicated and reliable team to work with. Whether you need to outsource to be more cost effective, or simply need additional resources, Sensible Technologies is the company to select.

Typically, we perform most of the electronic hardware and software development at our own facility. Most projects require confidentiality, and we are fully committed to executing a reasonable non-disclosure agreement.

Product Development 

Electronic Developer hard at work We provide a full service electronic and sensor design including system and circuitry analysis and design, prototype design and implementation, and prototype testing and evaluation.

Our Electronic Hardware Development Process consists of the following steps:

First we review your system level needs and translate those needs to a required group of subsystems.

We then determine the requirements for each of the subsystems. If research or experimental testing is needed to assure the required technology is fully understood prior to a detailed design of the subsystems, we identify those needs and do the necessary work and reporting.

Once all of the required technologies are understood, we then do the detailed circuit design.

This is followed by a careful "blue printing" of critical circuits.  Circuit blue printing is a subsystem evaluation of the first prototype where each component value is measured and the outputs of important circuits are calculated based upon the measured component values.

Once a design survives blueprint testing of individual subsystems, it is ready for system level testing.
electronic board We are here to assist you with a successful project.

Typical hardware deliverables include hardware requirements report, schematics, parts list, assembly drawings, component data sheets, net list, PCB CAD files (e.g., Gerber files), analysis reports (upon request), and test reports (upon request).

Software Development

Our Software Development Process consists of the following steps:

Requirements analysis
Architectural design
Software construction (including design, coding, testing, and system integration and validation testing)
Documentation, and;

Our development process allows for incremental, controlled development in preplanned stages. This allows you to view real project progress against planned milestones. Iterative development allows the project to be adjusted based on your feedback and approved changes. Throughout the process, we conduct quality control to ensure that our process standards are properly followed. This Software Development Process assures that the project development costs are kept under control.

Where practical, we use object-oriented methods to make it easier to create and maintain the software. Where possible, we reuse generic code for the user interface, serial communications, graphics, and so forth. This reuse of code can substantially reduce the cost of development.

We use up-to-date tools for development of the software. This maximizes the productivity of our development staff. If applicable, we also use hardware simulators to allow development of the software in parallel with hardware development.

Typical software deliverables include Software Requirements Report, Software Design Report, Staged Delivery Plan, Software Test Report, Project Documentation File, and source, object and executable files on diskette. In most cases, the Users Manual can be drafted from the requirements and design reports.

Product Manufacturing

We manufacture many of the products that we design for our clients. Services include:

Bluebull.gif (1028 bytes) Materials procurement
Bluebull.gif (1028 bytes) Component level quality control
Bluebull.gif (1028 bytes) Assembly
Bluebull.gif (1028 bytes) Testing of printed circuit boards, subassemblies, and final assemblies

Specialty Services

We also provide additional specialty services including:

Manufacturing Test System Design and Development. We provide manufacturing test system design and development. The process is similar to our circuit design process. We first review and analyze the product to be tested as a system. We evaluate the system from the top down looking at the subassemblies and product structure for reasonable opportunities to perform tests without increasing net manufacturing cost or requiring unreasonable design changes.


Our mission is to achieve excellence through built-in quality resulting in products and applications that perform as intended. We are committed to continual improvement in our hardware development, software development, and manufacturing processes in order to create quality products and applications that meet or exceed your expectations.
