Many of our clients wish to incorporate a wireless feature in their product. For example, a bulldozer may be required to report its GPS-derived location to its owner, an MP3 player may need to stream high quality audio to a nearby speaker, a miniature battery-powered device may need to send small amounts of data to an access point, mobile hospital equipment may need to tie into an 802.11, Wi-Fi, or ZigBee™ network, or a remote device may need to sense and stream high speed data to a base location over a proprietary link. Indesign offers an RF circuit design team with passion and experience in these and other wireless areas. We can take your rough concepts to a final product, we can engage with your team on the wireless portions of a project, or consult on a particular aspect of the RF circuit or antenna.
Indesign has established formal 3rd-party developer agreements with major semiconductor providers such as Ember, Freescale™, Infineon, Semtech, Texas Instruments, and others.

Your RF circuit design is of little value until it can be produced in volume at an acceptable cost. We are experienced in working with manufacturers to develop wireless products that can be economically built and tested to a high degree of confidence needed for your product. We will work with your manufacturer during the early runs to get successful products built. We also design and fabricate factory test stands and develop their software.
Going hand-in-hand with RF design is solving problems with unwanted RF emissions and susceptibility. From the start of your project, your electrical circuit design will be done with an eye towards successful compliance testing. We are familiar with FCC, Military and European compliance standards. We have good working relationships with qualified test labs and we’ll apply our experience to make your design compliant. We will assist with the needed certifications for your product.
Whether your product requires a standards-based wireless feature, such as ZigBee™, or a completely custom, optimized wireless protocol, Indesign can take your ideas into reality.
