Let our engineering staff speed up the evolution of your new product. Together, we can get your product ready to go to market quickly, confidently, and on budget!
BNS Solutions has the knowledge and experience to successfully work on a wide range of projects. Below are of some of our key capabilities.
Well designed and implemented embedded systems are the key to a successful product in the electronic age. BNS Solutions is known for our innovative approach to all types of these systems. From controlling a home fireplace to tracking drug use in hospitals, our experience gives us the ability to design the right system for you. Whether this is your first entry into high tech or you need to augment your own inhouse design team with our expertise, BNS takes the time to truly understand your business, your market, and precisely how the product functions and is applied to solve market segment problems. In this way, we make sure that the final solution maximizes the functionality of your product without adding unnecessary costs by overshooting the needs. Vin D’Agostino, our principal, is recognized as a leader in embedded systems and is regularly invited to speak at international conferences on the subject.
BNS Solutions has vast experience designing systems that include motor control for brushed DC, brushless DC, AC and stepper motors. We’ve created designs that have been in pump, blower and machine applications of motors with both closed loop control of speed as well as other application centric parameters.
BNS Solutions has years of experience designing portable products and the battery systems that power them. Too often, batteries are the last thought in the design of a portable product. Too many designers unfortunately feel that battery management is simply about charge control and fuel gauging. BNS Solutions knows that good portable product design needs to cover much more. Battery life can be dramatically affected by the overall system design, hardware/software tradeoffs, and even something as simple as operating voltage. BNS makes sure that the battery system is designed in concert with the product it is powering. Through this process, we can make sure that you bring the most efficient product possible to the marketplace.Vin D’Agostino, our principal, is a recognized expert in this field and has been invited to speak at many conferences in the United States and abroad.
Temperature Measurement & Control
BNS Solutions has experience working with many different measurement technologies including thermocouples, thermistors, RTD’s (Resistance Temperature Devices), and IC based temperature sensors. Our knowledge can can be key in helping you select the right device for your product. Our design process doesn’t just look at the temperature extremes being measured. We examine the expected environment, the necessary stability, the degree of accuracy, the ideal sensitivity, and the desired response time to help you create the best product possible for your market. BNS has also developed a number of systems to control temperature or use temperature information to control other process parameters.
BNS Solutions develops all of its embedded firmware utilizing the C Language. Programs properly written in C are more maintainable, easier to debug, and faster to develop. In addition, specific algorithms for your company written in C are more easily ported to new hardware platforms as your products evolve. And to make sure that you get all the information you need, we always include comprehensive documentation including descriptive commenting, flow charting, and software module descriptions.
User Interface Design
BNS Solutions understands that one of the most critical elements leading to the success or failure of a new product is how a person interacts with it. We are proud to be a respected leader in man-machine interface design. Keyboards, custom LCDs, and graphic LCD screens are all designed in-house by our experienced engineers. Then we test them and re-test them to gather end user input before the final design goes into production. We have been the author of many award-winning user interfaces and are especially proud that many of them have lived on for multiple product generations.
Schematic Capture and PCB Layout
BNS Solutions utilizes the latest technology in Mentor Graphics, PADS, and PCB design suite.
The application of the proper technology to a specific market is vital to creating a successful product. The depth and breadth of our experience gives BNS the ability to have a full understanding of the potential technologies for your product, your marketplace, and your position within that marketplace. Then, by working closely with you during the critical product specification phase, we can insure that the appropriate
BNS Solutions has many other capabilities, too, including prototype assembly, low and high volume production (strategic alliance with domestic and offshore CM partners), and product/project specification.
