Electronics Design and Construction

EDL is a full-service electronics design, prototyping and packaging facility. We use industry standard computer-aided design software to draw schematics, simulate circuits and systems, and to design and lay out printed circuit boards. An in-house darkroom allows us to quickly fabricate printed circuit boards for prototype circuits. We have the capability to provide custom project packaging and light mechanical fabrication from our machine shop, and we have industry contacts to make larger, more detailed fabrications to specification.

Digital Design and Software Development

EDL performs custom PLD design for projects using FPGAs or PLDs and can develop software for embedded systems. We also write custom LabView code for data acquisition applications.

Testing and Debugging

In addition to our design and production capabilities, EDL has the equipment to conduct through, precise project debugging and testing, as well as network and impedance analysis of circuits at frequencies up to 1.8GHz. A temperature chamber is available to test circuits under adverse heat and cold, and to stress-test circuits through simulated aging. EDL has a microscope station to manually inspect surface-mount components, silicon wirebonds and other precise objects. Automated testing of complex and delicate circuits can be done on the High Energy Physics probe station.

Wirebonding and Microchips

EDL has access to a silicon wirebonding machine in cooperation with the High Energy Physics group. Implementing custom silicon in your project has never been easier!
