Got know-how

Truly breakthrough product development requires high quality engineering capabilities and services. As a knowledge-based company, we use a stage-gate approach that involves constant testing, refinement, and communication.

At PCDworks, we have the team, technology, and tenacity to take on even the most impossible engineering challenges.

Electrical Engineering

Because many of our solutions require electro-mechanical subsystems, we maintain strong electrical engineering capabilities across a range of disciplines including firmware design, software design, RF communication, and analog communication systems. Our capabilities include:

  • Electronic design and simulation
  • Embedded software development
  • PCB design and rapid prototyping
  • Sensor design, mote design, and programming
  • Wireless communication systems design
  • Intelligent wireless ad hoc networks
  • Positioning systems design
  • Power consumption optimization
  • RF, Microwave
  • Control system design

Mechanical Engineering

With extensive engineering capabilities, we provide a full range of services, including 3D CAD layouts, electronic circuit design, analytical modeling, and multi-physics simulation. Our mechanical engineering team is dedicated to quickly producing strong designs and performing engineering calculations to verify your concept’s validity. Capabilities include:

  • Analytical Modeling
  • Solid Modeling
  • Multi-physics FEA (Heat transfer, stress/strain, vibration and fatigue, CFD)
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Computational Fluid Dynamic Modeling

Our engineers are experts at all the standard mechanical engineering disciplines:

  • Mechanics
  • Kinematics
  • Structural Analysis
  • Mechatronics
  • Thermal and Fluid Dynamics
  • Material Science

In addition, we have local outsider consultants and have worked in:

  • Vibration
  • Acoustics
  • Surface Treatments
  • Tribology
  • Electrohydraulics

Mathematical Modeling

Mathematical modeling is a valuable tool to use when tackling problems that have plagued industries for years. It's especially beneficial for complex and high-risk New Product Development projects. After all, what we learn from mathematical simulations enables us to mitigate as much risk as possible before the design and building process even begins. Our capabilities include:

  • COMSOL Multiphysics Modules
  • AC/DC Module
  • Heat Transfer Module
  • Structural Mechanics Module
  • CFD Module
  • Mixer Module
  • Optimization Library
  • Material Library

Sensors and IoT

In our state-of-the-art research and development lab, it's possible to design, prototype, and evaluate concepts that enable devices and machines to communicate over the internet. We have the engineering and technological know-how to design sensors, gather and clean data, and develop the communication layers and user interface to create an loT product from scratch.

Software Engineering

Our engineers can handle any type of problem from small time-sensitive embedded software to high demand full-stack web applications. We can also provide cross-platform desktop applications for Linux, macOS, Windows as well as mobile applications for Android and iOS.

We've developed embedded systems on several platforms from a wide variety of companies including:

  • Nordic Semiconductor
  • Texas Instruments
  • NXP
  • STMicroelectronics
  • Raspberry Pi

Our web applications designed to be capable of high scalability, easy deployment, and maintainability. Some of the technologies used are:

  • Vue.js
  • React / Fulcro
  • Clojure / ClojureScript
  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL / SQL Server
  • Cassandra
  • Docker
