Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping at the System Level

Sigma has created a hardware development platform with over 50 sensor and control hardware modules that allow them to rapidly assemble an interconnected system for proof-of-concept design testing.

Coupled with the extensive library of firmware and software modules puts Sigma in a class of its own when considering the speed at which a full system can be delivered.

Prototyping

Prototypes are a fundamental part of the product design cycle that provide engineers with insight how their design will perform.

Sigma's PCB team understands how imperative this step is in the design process and quick turn around time is critical to project success.

Testing

Automated End-of-Line Functional Testing

Sigma's engineering team understands designing for manufacturability and how important final testing is to the assembly process.

At the very beginning of the design process the engineering team is thinking about how to optimize testing and programming to minimize the production time and maintain high quality.

Developing Test Specifications

Validation testing that the circuit design meets all of the system requirements is critical in the product development lifecycle.

Sigma's engineering team can create and execute the test specification that is necessary to ensure the design meets all requirements.

Firmware / Software

Programming at the hardware level

Embedded software (aka. firmware) requires a deep understanding of the hardware as well as the functionality it is required to provide. Sigma has decades of experience working with embedded microcontrollers (MIPS, ARM, RISC V), flash memories, sensors, wireless and network communications protocols. In addition to the myriad of hardware peripherals Sigma has developed for its system prototyping platform.

Sigma's engineers also program within an RTOS environment (Linux, FreeRTOS, OpenEmbedded, VxWorks, etc.)

Programming at the system level

System level software design and programming may require several skillsets depending upon the complexity of the system. Sigma has the expertise to design and develop more complex systems including; backend server and database, UI (HMI) design with programming across a breadth of devices such as, desktop, tablet and smartphone.
