Electronics Design Services

At LAVA LABS your ideas are prototyped into real products. Backed by our deep knowledge  and extensive experience in electronic product development, we stride to design custom printed circuit boards(PCBs) that fully meet project requirements and your expectations.

Power systems design

Most electronics systems require solid understanding of power systems. The operating conditions within power systems can cover a wide gamut of needed voltages and currents. In particular,  the component selection such as MOSFETs, IGBTs, or bipolar transistors are highly dependent on the voltage, and the techniques LAVA LABS uses for developing low-and high-voltage systems are distinctly different and are specialized for the project needs. High-voltage circuits require a lot of experience to design reliably and evaluate safely. At LAVA LABS we design or redesign power circuits and program firmware to improve performance, optimize power consumption, or add new functionality to existing systems. Our careful choice of components, development tools, and techniques makes our PCB designs compliant with the requirements of FCC, UL, CE, and other certifications necessary for your power electronics.

EMBEDDED Circuits system design


As part of our electronics design services, we provide embedded hardware design and development for a wide range of embedded systems. LAVA LABS works on a verity of chipsets and microcontrollers based on an 8-, 16-, or 32-bit architecture. Furthermore we work with ARM based processors and IoT system-on- chip(SoC) from preferred manufactures such as U-Blox, Nordic Semiconductor, Microchip and others. We create sophisticated embedded systems with custom firmware for increased security requirements and a rich collection of peripherals and I/O capabilities. Our embedded system design allows for high and low level programing to achieve a verity of desired functionality and control. Whether you are looking for wireless connectivity such as WiFi, Bluetooth or Cellular and/or remote control via a phone or web application, our embedded systems can bridge the gap and be very scalable. They can also accommodate battery management systems(BMS) for portable hardware devices.

PCB Design Step by Step

Everything starts with good communication. In our initial and subsequent meetings we define and refine the functionality that is desired in a new product.  Often we will make s quick model and or circuit as a proof of concept before designing fully functional prototype. The proof of concept model along with customer feedback give us a good understanding of what is required and to define the technical specifications.

1- Circuit ARCHITECTURE & SCHEMATICS

After the specifications for the new product are well understood and agreed on with our client, we get to work on designing the schematic. The circuit schematic will outline the architechture of the elecronic functionality  and define the bill of materials(parts list) for the prototype.

2 – Circuit Layout & PCB Prototyping

From the schamatic we wil next build a prototype. To do that we design the the initial circuit that will then become the printed circuit board(PCB). After we have the PCB we will use our in-house pick and place machine to assemble and solder all the parts from the schamatic into a prototype. 

3 – PCB Manufacturing, PCB Assembly & Testing

Once the prototype has been built and tested for all functionality, we deliver it to our client for further testing in the field.  After collecting the gathering client and user feedback we make iterative adjustments to the hardware and software as needed. Next, we help set up a pilot run before the start of mass manufacturing.
