Electronic Integration Capabilities

The effectiveness of devices with electronic integration depends on the robust design, engineering, and performance of the electronics and how they interact and fit within the device.

SMC is prepared to help you with the design or management of electronics associated with your full device. If your device requires interface communications to another device such as a smart phone, access point, or directly to the cellular network for communication to a distance location for remote monitoring, SMC can provide guidance through RF or IR links.

For example, International Standards and the desired international frequencies vary widely for RF communications. The RF protocol can vary from a completely dedicated design and proprietary protocol to one of the popular short-distance communications protocols, mid-range communications or direct cellular connection.

Electronic Integrations SMC can assist with or provide:

  • Design architecture (component selection, partitioning, make/buy)
  • Schematic capture (system level and board level)
  • PCB Layout
  • Prototype board build and testing
  • Battery life options
  • RF and IR communications
  • Embedded antenna
  • DFM
  • Supply chain management of components
  • Awareness of obsolescence
  • Determine secondary source on components
  • Component and process traceability
  • Module testing, integration testing and complete system testing
  • Full device manufacturing and test

SMC’s engineers have the answers and the resources to design the electronics into your device with considerations for international standards, interface requirements, and Regulatory compliance.
