Audio system for conference rooms

Voler developed a prototype for an audio system with advanced digital signal processing for acoustic echo cancellation, ambient noise cancellation and equalization to maximize performance. The system gets its input through an analog front end that filters, amplifies, and powers microphones.  It can also drive multiple speakers through high quality, high performance DACs.  In addition, the [...]

Developing products for clinical settings

Voler developed the next generation clinical lice treatment unit that improved the usability and aesthetics, increased functionality, decreased costs, and improved portability. We provided very tight temperature control: hot enough to kill lice, not so hot it burns a child's head. Voler also added a cellular modem to enable tracking of each use (for reimbursement [...]

Voler is an outstanding design team

We were delighted with Voler’s professionalism and capabilities, characterized by a consultative understanding of our needs, frequent communication of progress and challenges, and delivering our project within cost and time expectations.  Voler fixed and delivered a prototype that two prior firms failed to complete. They also referred a partner that provided industrial design and mechanical [...]

AR glasses developed by Voler

Voler designed the electronics in the Rokid glasses which include an integrated wearable computer.  The glasses include facial recognition, voice recognition, and hand gesture recognition.  Their open platform runs Android and therefore can be easily tailored to many enterprise applications. Our first prototype made it possible for Rokid to test several key technologies, such as time [...]

User Interface for Chemical Analysis

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 [...]

5x Battery Life for Electric IMP based Product

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 [...]
