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 [...]
Recently, we worked with a startup to improve the battery life for their connected product. It was based on the Murata's impModule™ module with an ARM processor and WiFi transceiver. They needed a battery life of many weeks, and it was less than one week. First, we looked at various parts of the circuit and [...]
Voler Systems and V2Solutions recently partnered to develop the hardware, embedded software, mobile app and website for a home health product. It required a small battery-powered device to transmit data to a mobile phone and website. The biggest challenge in this project was the battery life: how to maximize the length of time between charges [...]
Today, motion control has moved well beyond its traditional uses in manufacturing. Medical devices, automotive, robotics and personal tools like smartphones and tablets have all benefited from motion control subsystems with lower cost, lower power, and smaller footprints and packaging due to better miniaturization. The key to harnessing the complexity of the electronics and embedded [...]
We have completed a challenging project that started with a referral from a partner. The liquid biopsy platform project was the design of a complex medical instrument and it required a combination of skills that we are known for: analog circuitry, FPGA, microprocessors, and firmware. The instrument is used for non-invasive liquid biopsies and requires the [...]
"We used Voler to help us design and develop a next generation non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system. They had all of the expertise and resources to deliver everything we needed. They even spend countless hours working with us in the design FMEA." Review from Vendor Op
Flexible electronics are lightweight, rugged, bendable, rollable, portable, and even foldable. As devices get smaller, the need for flexible electronic products is growing, and they are finding their way into more applications. Here are some interesting devices we have worked on. Wearable Devices Many of our wearable device designs have used flexible boards, including a [...]
If you missed Voler Systems at Bay ACM's talk "Sensors, Wearable Devices and Internet of Things", Walt Maclay presented the latest trends and challenges he sees for sensors, wearable devices and IoT, he has a Wearable World News' article at http://wearableworldnews.com/2014/05/21/innovation-trends-sensors-wearable-devices/.
