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 [...]
by Dan Orlando & Walt Maclay 1. Recognizing the need for testing Many people don’t realize how important testing is to the product manufacturing process. After manufacturing, each board should be tested to ensure only good products are shipped. Despite excellent quality control at the best contract manufacturers, there can be errors in PCB fabrication, PCB assembly, flaws [...]
Voler was recently approached by a large medical device company that relied on test equipment that had been designed several years earlier by a firm that was no longer available. They ask Voler for help because for the last two years the equipment would periodically fail calibration and was providing inconsistent results. They had done [...]
Past Projects Voler delivers quality products on time and on budget. Rack Mounted Test System We understand test systems. Our experience is enhanced with our knowledge of digital circuits, analog circuits, and sensors. Some of our many test system projects include: Large rack and stack test systems Small test systems PC or PXI systems [...]
Noise is unwanted interference that affects the signal and may distort the information. Noise comes from a variety of sources. Some comes from inside a circuit or device, and some from outside. What creates this noise? Motors generate noise and fluorescent lighting generates noise. Noise gets into a circuit from outside through two fundamentally different ways:
The IC tester product design included FPGA design and high-speed analog design. "excellent job" "on time and below budget"
