Our wealth of knowledge and experience makes us the ideal choice for electronic product development. Companies can use us as their entire engineering department, offering substantial savings over providing these facilities in house. Alternatively, our services can be used to supplement existing in house facilities.
We are able to develop new products and software projects on short timescale's, getting your concept to market in the minimum time.
Unlike many other companies, we also specialise in providing custom designed solutions for one-off special projects. Our in-house facilities allow us to provide solutions quickly and cost effectively.
In addition to providing complete solutions IBEX also offers individual design services to companies. These include:
If you're a design house needing to outsource we are also happy to work as a silent subcontractor and we won't contact your clients directly to introduce ourselves!
We are specialist embedded designers with a huge amount of experience designing products utilising everything from very low cost 8 bit microcontroller's to incredibly powerful 16 and 32 bit processors. The range of embedded devices available today is vast with the cost vs performance equation having become less and less of a factor in new product designs. Combined with falling prices in other technology areas, such as displays, we are able to design increasingly sophisticated devices with the lower and lower production costs.
We've built up massive libraries of working software modules over the years, allowing us to provide extremely competitive quotes for many projects. Our in house services include assembler, C and C++ embedded software development.
Open source hardware is a great solution for lots of one off and specialist projects, but it often needs some level of bespoke electronics and software drivers adding for a specific task. We design for open source hardware platforms such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi and we are able to quickly and cheaply design hardware add on's and software drivers for client projects. This can either be as a complete finished solution or to allow your own onward in-house development. If you are looking at open source hardware for an upcoming project why not use our expertise to do the complex or specialist low level hardware side for you and ensure it is designed correctly. We can even write the basic template software for you, allowing you to get on with your main software functionality.
We also contribute a great deal of our knowledge and resources back to the community through open sourcing and publishing many of our company’s internal notes and libraries. You can see some of our open source resources here.
We don't just design software for electronic products. We also provide full PC software development services using Visual C++/CLI and C# (.NET). These are the most powerful of all the graphically based PC development languages, allowing us to provide PC applications engineered to run in the fastest and most versatile ways possible.
We provide complete application development for the Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod) operating system. The introduction of the iPad has moved this field from being just relevant to applications for very small personal devices to now encompassing all sorts of electronic product applications. In addition to designing great stand alone app's, we're also increasingly being asked to provide connectivity from electronic products to an iPad based app instead of developing software for the PC. With its intuitive ease of use the user experience is often able to be made simpler and a lot more pleasurable. We are also approved members of the Apple MFi program, allowing us to design electronic products which connect to iOS devices via wired connections and Bluetooth.
Internet connected electronic products often require online or 'in the cloud' functionality. As well as developing software for electronic devices and PC's, we're also develop software for web servers and online services using PHP, MySQL and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Our experience is this field ranges from simple product software update servers to complex web2.0 web sites with massive data storage back ends.
We also provide product enclosure design to complete your overall product development. Our in house capabilities cover a range of technologies or should you require an enclosure design that needs a specialist in this field we can introduce you to some of the industries best designers that we have worked with and can recommend. We are also equally happy to work with an enclosure designer you have already selected.
Face to face meetings can't be beaten, but we also offer great online meeting alternatives to our clients:
Over the years we have designed many different types of equipment. The demands of our clients are extremely diverse and we pride ourselves on being able to provide the solution for virtually any project. This has lead us to deal with many technologies, in many different fields.
Where we don't have the in-house facilities or knowledge required for an aspect of a project, we use the services of trusted subcontractors. This provides our clients with the same high quality service, from a single source, whatever their project requirements.
