Electronics design

Sometimes off-the-shelf products simply cannot meet your requirements. On these occasions DSL can offer a fast and reliable bespoke electronic design service focused on delivering application specific and cost optimised solutions.

DSL’s flexible IP ownership/NRE amortisation options enable those committing to production to benefit from reduced, or even zero NRE costs.

The company's own design focus is to provide embedded solutions via performance optimised, cost-effective target platforms. Original designs were based upon an NEC 'V' series 8x86 code compatible processors. To date, designs include a wider range of x86 architecture including 486DX, 5x86, NS Geode GX1, ElanSC400 and STPC processor engines. In addition, our design engineers are IPC Certified Interconnect Designers (C.I.D.).

DSL is a National Semiconductors IA Partner and fully ISO 9001:2008 registered.
