Hardware Design: Digital, Analog , Interface

Designs vary in complexities from small 6/8-pin PIC10 PIC12 Controllers to larger Processors or DSP with a FPGA for I/O expansion, Peripheral Modules, Interface and glue logic. Electronic Designs consist both of Digital and Analog circuitry. Renix Electronics has completed many such designs as part of a deliverable or as a turnkey solution.

Hardware Design - Processors & Firmware

Our development Boards have a variety of Processors from 8-bit Microchip to 32-bit STMicro ARM Cortex-M series.

Code development for our Processor Boards could be done with the FREE Compiler tools from vendors. (See Development Tools). Debugging and program download is done using the inexpensive Debuggers and Programmers we offer.

VHDL (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language ) for FPGA designs.

Complete VHDL Test Benches using text based vector input (stimulus) & output (error reporting) files.
