Consilia Transforms Ideas into Commercial Success

Consilia provides bespoke Hardware and Software Product Design and Development Services.

Our R&D engineering team can supply design and consulting services at all stages of product development, from printed circuit board design and FPGA design to embedded software design services. We have extensive experience in hardware and software integration.

Hardware Design and Development

Consilia supports your project with electronic engineering and design services.

Consilia is a group of passionate engineers at the peak of their careers.

Although we have been active in the electronic design business for a long time, we are still continuously acquiring experience with the newest technologies. We are interested in pushing the limits of our expertise further to higher and higher frequencies.

Integrating software and hardware is one of our strengths.

We provide a wide range of electronic design services.

Our key competence lies in Field-Programmable Gate Array design, Digital Signal Processing, Printed Circuit Boards, Radio Frequency, and HW design.

Our Involvement in Electronic Product Life Cycle

Hardware development process and services

Idea

The first step needed in the process of the hardware product life cycle is the idea phase.

1

Concept

The concept phase is the most important and often neglected one in product design.

2

Design

The output of the design phase is the delivery of manufacturing data.

3

Prototyping

Consilia provides production data, procurement, testing, and prototype certification.

4

Manufacturing

Correct production data is the basis for reliable and efficient manufacturing.

5

Maintenance

We feel responsible for the developed products.

6

We provide design, engineering, and consultant services in the above-stated life cycle phases of hardware product development.

Hardware Design and Development Services

Wide range of electronic design services to support your product

RF Design

RF Design

We have very long and extensive experience in developing such circuits.

We are still enthusiastic about going even higher with the frequencies and lowering the noise as much as physics allows.

PCB Design

PCB Design

This is a crucial activity we do in the complete product creation or as an on-demand service.

We have considerable experience and technical background, including circuit design know-how and professional PCB layout team. We are not limited by almost anything in the PCB world.

FPGA Design

FPGA Design

Our team has been making advanced FPGA designs for more than 20 years.

An FPGA is an essential part of application areas such as test and measurement devices, SDR devices, fast data filtering, transformation and compression, and IT networking components.

Hardware Design

Hardware Design

We design various types of hardware.

Starting with simple designs with just one microcontroller through more complex multiprocessor systems to complex instruments that provide advanced functionality.

DSP Design

DSP Design

We use DSP techniques on an almost daily basis.

We see them as a necessary part of all the measurement instruments, data compression applications, and artificial intelligence (AI).

Customized focus

on individual solutions

We deliver outputs in various forms, mostly assembled PCB modules or modules, including mechanical parts and modules with or without embedded software.

We offer several possible cooperation models in nearshore and offshore software development outsourcing.

Software Development

Consilia empowers the customers with software development.

We focus on embedded applications.

We also design their software counterparts for host PCs to provide our customers with a full–service chain (including the integration of hardware and software).

Our team of engineers follows the latest trends in software development to make our products more straightforward, reusable, and easy to modify.

We can speed up your software development project in many areas.

Our primary focus is Firmware, Backend, Frontend, and Driver for Windows & Linux Development, Software testing, and Linux BSP Creation and Processor Porting.

Our Merit in Software Development Life Cycle

Our typical job flow is based on the following controlled processes.

Feasibility Studies

For such an analysis, we need certain inputs from the customer.

1

Software Architecture Design

We sketch up the layers of the software, suggest the functional blocks and define relations between them.

2

Proof of Concept

Regarding POC, we test and measure all critical parameters of the final product.

3

Data Flow Models

We use the output of this phase as a basis for creating the modules/units and the unit test plan.

4

Research on Solutions

We can realize many marketing models in multiple ways.

5

Implementation

We implement the software using a revision control system extensively.

6

Unit Tests

Our team internally takes care of the unit tests.

7

Vertical Integration of the Components

In projects where the Agile approach is selected as the best.

8

Integration with HW

Therefore, we usually perform hardware/software integration seamlessly and avoid finding critical system bugs too late.

9

Feature Tests

When appropriate, we create our own test system and implement the tests so that they can be reused and repeated at any time.

10

Regression Tests

Therefore, we reuse the test system and test cases from the feature tests.

11

We provide services in every phase of the software development life cycle. It depends on the customer if he needs to use our full process chain or just a part of our services.

Software Development Services

Our software engineers (including our embedded software engineers) understand that software development is not just coding.

Linux Application Development

Linux Application Development

Applications are the top layer of the whole software stack running on operating systems.

We develop applications that make the brain job of the features.

E.g., applications that provide GNSS data to the LAN or USB ports or the local host through inter-process communication.

Backend Development

Backend Development

We develop servers (backends) running on the ARM Cortex-A processor and one of the Linux distributions.

We find a solution for almost any requested functionality or interface. We work with REST API, web socket, or with our customized binary-data TCP protocols.

Frontend Development

Frontend Development

We are moving forward and optimizing our solutions towards higher speed and less memory usage.

Our frontends are web-browser applications or separate compiled applications with access to the same API as web browsers.

Linux BSP Creation and Processor Porting

Linux BSP Creation and Processor Porting

Processor platform exchange is the task for our hardware developers. Our software developers consequently build an OS (often a Linux BSP) for the new processor.

And we also develop a hardware abstraction layer for various processor platforms.

Firmware Development

Firmware Development

We develop bare metal applications focusing on low-cost BOM, low-power dissipation, and real-time code execution.

We empower our customers in many application areas, e.g., compact automation, Industry 4.0, home appliances, software-assisted sensors, IoT (Internet of Things) applications for hobbies, professional tools, and many others.

Software Testing

Software Testing

We do the software testing in all known development phases.

We provide software testing also as a specific service. We either get the product specification and create a test plan or get the test plan for review.

Driver Development for Windows & Linux

Driver Development for Windows & Linux

Drivers are a significant part of the software for operating systems running on customized hardware platforms.

We are enthusiastic about developing custom drivers for Linux. On certain projects, we support specific customers also with drivers for Windows 10 and 11.
