Trade studies are integral in determining the best cost/benefit for a given project.
We have comprehensive experience in performing trade studies on a variety of scenarios.
What happens when circuitry is radiation hardened? Is there a cost savings to miniaturize
my system? How will changing my receiver specifications affect my IC architecture?
Our team can help answer your questions and guide you in making wise decisions for
Miniaturization Cost Study
Are you wondering how to save costs in your electronic systems? Does your Bill of
Materials look overwhelming? We perform miniaturization cost trade studies that can
uncover the pros and cons to miniaturizing your electronics. We deliver go-forward
options that meet your specific program goals, such as cost, weight, or size improvements.
Radiation Hardening for Space
Do your electronics need to operate in space or in high radiation environments? Our
radiation experts can help. Our radiation hardening trade studies suggest the best
path forward for space qualified electronics. We evaluate methods to develop rad-hard
electronics including fabrication, packaging and space qualification. Trade-offs
between cost, size and performance are performed, leading to a rad-hard development
approach for your electronics.
Our hardware, software and test team develop comprehensive hardware validation plans
to facilitate the daunting task of validating your electronics. We have expertise
in MIL-STD-883 and JEDEC test procedures that are required for aerospace, military
& defense, and industrial electronics. A hardware validation trade study brings the
confidence that all areas of electronic test and characterization have been considered
and a thorough validation process developed.
Specification Implementation Study
Do you have a great idea put aren’t sure how to implement it? We perform trade studies
to provide you options for implementation. We evaluate your specification and program
goals and suggest technology, integration techniques and validation approaches to
successfully implement your project.
We provide feasibility trade studies to evaluate system architectures and implementations.
If you have ever thought, “I wonder if …?” or “Could we …?” We can help. The results
of feasibility trade studies can open up adjacent markets, aide in specification
development, and identify possible product enhancements.
