Don't miss our recent article on prototypes "Testing your key assumptions" in Embedded Computing Design. Prototypes are an important part of the hardware development process. At the simplest level, a prototype is an initial or preliminary model of the product. You build a prototype to test key assumptions that you have about the product. Prototypes [...]
Security can not be an afterthought for IoT and wearable devices, it must be designed in from the very beginning. It must be addressed in all phases of the project, including system design, test and validation. Security tradeoffs and implementation will impact Hardware requirements and power consumption End-to-end connectivity Testing and validation Why is IoT [...]
Voler Systems developed an instrument that measures turbidity (cloudiness) of water for industrial water processing. It uses the refractive index of the fluid to measure the volume of minute particles in the water. The user interface provided control for operational, diagnostic, and calibration functions. We provided a clear and intuitive user interface for the instrument [...]
We provide full-service R&D consulting from concept and design to production of devices for human use and instruments. Our multidisciplinary team knows the regulatory process and procedures and delivers high-quality products on time and on budget. Voler Systems can design to the strict requirements for federal and European design that include: IEC60601 – medical device requirements IEC62304 [...]
We recently delivered two different IoT projects that were both based on the TI CC3200 Wifi Module with an ARM Cortex-M4 processor. We selected the ARM Cortex-M4 because it's low-power 16-bit processor was ideal for our real-time application. The TI module nicely integrates the ARM processor, wifi block, timers, the Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) channels, and [...]

Walt Maclay is an invited speaker at Real-Time Embedded Computing Conference (RTECC), a FREE event dedicated to bringing the design community together to share challenges, solutions and inspiration for evolving and emerging industries. Walt will share with his vision of Sensors, Wearable Devices, and IoT trends on January 22, 2015 at 2pm. Register for free [...]
Active Mind Technology provides golfers with stats and trending information about their golf game. Their product, Game Golf, uses GPS to track location, accelerometers to track swing and related information, and uses Near Field Communication (NFC) tags to identify each club. They approached Voler Systems after early prototypes exhibited erratic behavior. Because of their commitment to quality they [...]
Voler is an expert in all types of measurements, analog circuit design, digital circuit design, and mixed signal design, as well as measurement and control software. Specializing in sensors, motion control, wireless, and medical device design, my staff of senior engineers and I can design a new product rapidly that works the first time. They [...]
Universal serial bus (USB) is an economical and convenient connection for both industrial and commercial applications; USB continues to replace many legacy serial connections (i.e. RS-232, 485).
However, for some industrial and embedded solutions, wireless USB is becoming the choice interface for enabling connectivity to new applications. Products are moving to wireless USB to eliminate cables and to gain the convenience of always being connected.
