Hardware development

Custom-made hardware

At E.D.&A. we develop customized hardware quickly and efficiently. We actively partner with our customers from the beginning of their project, list their wishes and specifications and translate these into a custom-made electronic controller.

Stable & powerful electronic controllers

Our engineers add their know-how to make each product into a stable and powerful electronic controller. During the design phase we prefer to use standard schemas and proven technology. This improves not just the quality and stability of our electronic controllers, but also the reliability of your end product. That is what it is all about.

Yet a stable and powerful controller also needs to be safe to use. That is why we submit all our controllers to advanced tests and simulations. This not only promotes the quality and stability of our controllers, but also their reliability.

To ensure all of those characteristics, our teams and divisions work closely together during each phase of the development and production processes. This way, we always create the best electronics at the lowest cost.

Hardware industrialisation

After a successful proof-of-concept, the customer involves us early in the process for the industrialisation of the electronics design. We examine the hardware and ensure that it can be produced and tested quickly and efficiently (DfM: Design for Manufacturability and DfT: Design for Test). We also check the availability of the electronic components by means of various software tools.

E.D.&A. uses various widely used PCB development platforms to ensure that the industrialisation phase runs smoothly. Exchanging files with the customer is easy in this way. These platforms enable a rapid start to in-house assembly

For new customers, we regularly carry out audits on existing designs to bring to light any shortcomings in terms of regulations, EMC, design or manufacturability. This is often a good starting point for a new or modified electronics design.

Complete assembly of your electronic controls

Besides the development and production of our controllers, we also take care of their complete assemblies. If you want us to, we provide a custom-made casing or electrical cabinet for your custom electronics, including cables, packaging, manuals and labels.

In-house testing

At E.D.&A. all our developments, including prototypes, are extensively tested in-house. This way, we can always guarantee an optimal and safe functioning of our controllers. The tests are largely automated and run through a range of facilities that we have at our disposal, from a climate chamber to an advanced EMC room.

The installation of an additional full compliant 3m SAC (Semi Anechoic Chamber) allows our engineers to also perform in-house radiated emission measurements in full compliance with applicable standards such as EN61000-6-3 of -4, CISPR14-1, CISPR32 and others.

How we develop our hardware

The development and production of our hardware always starts with our customers. Firstly, we look at your wishes, your specifications and any initial documents you can provide us to lay the foundation for your project. Then we make the necessary preparations and develop an electronic design to match your specifications. Afterwards, we produce and test the controller’s operation with our own facilities. This way, we can guarantee that your electronic controller will meet both your expectations and the necessary quality standards.
