ByteSnap launches electronics and software design troubleshooting and rescue service

BIRMINGHAM and EDS in Coventry, 15 October 2019: Award-winning embedded systems consultancy ByteSnap Design will launch a new service to put struggling electronics projects back on track, at this year’s Electronics Design Show on stand L22.

Called the ByteSnap Design Rescue Service, it includes a thorough analysis of a project to identify reasons for failure, advice on the best approach for rescue and provides realistic timelines for delivery. Whether a rescue means replacing some components or starting from scratch to deliver a working product, the ByteSnap team has the experience, integrity and honesty to recommend the optimum solution.

Even with the best requirements and specifications, electronics design projects can drift. Missed deadlines lead to slower time to market, frustration in both technical and management teams and potential financial and reputational damage if a product isn’t delivered on time.

The service was developed for the increasing number of clients approaching ByteSnap to troubleshoot electronics and software design projects. Whether a project is drifting because of staff churn and issues with replacements, internal politics, incorrect component selection caused by lack of specific knowledge within a technical team, or developing a product that is simply too difficult to manufacture, getting a project back on track should be a priority, especially if costs are skyrocketing.

Example projects include:

  • Completing a specialist mobile phone design that was six months behind schedule
  • Fixing EMC issues with an industrial motor controller
  • Redesigning a security camera system that had been architected in such a way as to be incapable of meeting the original requirements
  • Moving a GUI from a poor performing QT implementation to a 15x faster solution based on SnapUI (ByteSnap’s User Interface Development Framework)

The design rescue process includes:

  • Open communication with the current team, both technical and management
  • Analysis of existing design
  • Identification of usable elements of design
  • Estimation of work effort to put the project back on track
  • Design rescue with detailed design review
  • Results verification and planning
  • Planning for the project’s next steps
  • Design changes pushed into production for implementation.

ByteSnap supports clients throughout the entire Design Rescue process and for more information, please visit: https://www.bytesnap.com/about-us/design-rescue-service-fixing-electronics-software-product-designs/?ref=endsp1010

Improving Battery-Life with Ultra Low-Power Processors

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP

Battery life is critical in today’s mobile device designs, and designing-in ever-larger batteries causes all sorts of awkward compromises. The best strategy is to lower power consumption, and the processor is a great place to start. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Nik Jedrzejewski of NXP about the new NXP 7ULP, and how it will help you cut power consumption in your mobile design.
