Hardware Design (Analog and Digital)
AISD, Inc. will provide contract design services in analog and digital
design. We have engineers experienced in many fields of experience with
analog and digital design.
Hardware designs completed without use of your in-house staff Designs
completed on time by agreed upon schedules Quality work fully verified
AISD has experienced engineers available to complete all phases of the
design and development cycle. Our lab facilities are fully outfitted for
high speed analog, digital, and RF circuit testing.
AISD will work together with you to develop a project proposal or statement
of work. The purpose of this phase of development is to insure
that we know what it is you need. We will produce a written statement
of work for you approval. When we have done so and received your
approval, we will then bid a schedule and cost for the job. Since
this phase can sometimes take a considerable effort on the part of both
parties, we work on a time and materials cost basis for this phase of
After you have received our quote and commissioned us to do the work,
we begin the development task. Progress reports and design reviews
are scheduled as part of the quote so you are kept aware of the progress
as it continues. This keeps you in the design loop and helps us
make sure that we are developing the product that you need. If
you are not successful, we will not be either.
Test and Verification
AISD will either fully test and validate the design, or allow this to
be done in your facility. This is the case many times where our
product is a component of your product. We will work together with
you at your facility as necessary to carry the product to the goal. We
do not believe in throwing projects "over walls", but rather
we run with you until you tell us that you have what you need. Project
developments are goal/milestone oriented.

LASER Pointing Control System
Under contract with a major medical services group, AISD, Inc. developed
a servo control system prototype that was used in the development of Automatic
LASER positioning systems used for eye surgery. AISD, Inc. developed a
combined model for the mechanical and electrical control system, and designed
a stable control loop for the system.
Network (RFN) - RF Propagation Simulator
Under government sub-contract, AISD, Inc. is developing an RF propagation
simulator that allows the US Navy to test JTIDS terminals and
equipment in the lab simulating distance related attenuation and delay
as would be experienced in a dynamic combat scenario. This project
also included development of a Windows GUI to interact with the RFN and
with a script controller over the network. We are currently developing
a follow-on system to support JTRS radios (2MHz - 2GHz).
Custom Measurement While Drilling Communications
Under contract with a national drilling pipe manufacturer, AISD, Inc.
developed model to understand that clients specialized media, and
then designed a digital modem to communicate over that media at 2 Mbits/sec.
was integrated into bi-directional repeater nodes that could collect data
at points midway along the drill stem. We also developed a TDMA Full Duplex
protocol (data link layer and application layer) that included a
facility for time synchronous recording. We built a working prototypes
for the final IC (approx 75k gates) using Xilinx FPGA's and discrete analog
circuits with ADC's, DAC's, carrier detect and AGC.
