Motion Control for Medical Devices

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 [...]

Liquid Biopsy Platform – A Challenging Design

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 [...]

IoT based on ARM processor and TI CC3200 Wifi Module

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 [...]

Non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system

"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

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 [...]

Missed Bay ACM’s “Sensors, Wearable Devices, and IoT”

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/.

Software: Testing Motion Detection for Wearable Devices

Here is a case study for a recent project where we assisted a customer with motion detection for wearable devices. We were able to find and fixed one troubling but intermittent problem and also gave them a testing rig to test the accuracy of future software upgrades to the device. Active Mind Technology provides golfers [...]

Point of Sale (POS) System Delivered Ahead of Schedule

With intense deadline pressure to demo a new working system at an upcoming tradeshow, a global manufacturing firm based in China turned to Voler Systems for help. They contacted us 8 weeks before the tradeshow, but like many large organizations, it took four weeks to give us approval to start. They were committed to a [...]

Islands of Data

A large number of innovative devices are being designed and deployed. Most of these devices are designed to gather information and send it to a website. Unfortunately, the data is often available only on a web site where it cannot be used by another program or compared with data from other devices. The Nike FuelBand measures [...]
