Sintecs. Designing on the edge
We make electronics designs on the edge of what is technically feasible. We actively seek new design challenges and constantly push ourselves. We help companies design complex electronics that really do work.
We spent over 20 years helping our customers designing reliable, complex, high speed hardware. That’s why we know like no other that electronics design requires a close collaboration between schematics design, analysis and PCB layout engineers. Our engineers have an in-depth understanding of analysis results. They constantly work together to design complex electronics that really do work.
How do we help companies design electronics that really do work?
1. Many first-time customers approach us for troubleshooting.
On their prototype, they for instance run into DDR interface issues, or they experience EMC. We review schematics and layout or run a few select analyses, to help identify and solve issues on the board.
Sometimes the prototype can be brought up, at other times new hardware needs to be ordered.
2. Next, they engage us for a board analysis before they order the prototype.
When using state-of-the-art components with fast edges, following the lay-out guidelines doesn’t always suffice. After our customer has finalized the PCB layout, we analyze for instance signal integrity, power integrity, cross talk, timing, and DFM/DFA.
This way our customer can correct issues with the layout in time.
3. Then they leave the entire PCB design to us.
Our layout engineers closely work with colleagues who are analysis experts, and continuously receive feedback on their designs. That has two advantages: 1) we engineer out potential future issues before they end up in the prototype, and 2) our layout engineers have built an immense expertise that they put to use for our customer’s designs.
4. Ultimately, we take care of the entire electronics design process.
During the entire design process, our engineers responsible for schematics, board bring-up and software work closely together with PCB layout and analysis engineers.
Throughout the entire design, the customer stays responsible for the application knowledge. This way, the end product gets the maximum advantage of our electronics design expertise and the customer’s domain knowledge.
