Hardware Development
PSA has designed various types of electronic devices based on microprocessors, FPGA, MCU from such manufactures as MicroChip, Almel, Freescale, NXP, Xilinx, Altera.
Our company also develops firmware on FPGA and CPLD chips, designs and integrates IP cores, data processing algorithms, utilizes processor cores (MicroBlaze, PicoBlaze, Nios) manufactured by Xilinx, Altera and custom/specialized modules.
Our experts have great achievements and experience in the following fields:
  • Fiber optical network transport systems design with custom time division multiplexing (TDM), multiple high speed digital audio/video interfaces support, integration with signal processing blocks, peripherals and memory interfaces.
  • FPGA hardware selection, architecture and design selection, VHDL/Verilog programming languages IP Cores implementation, simulation and verification, using Xilinx ISE, Altera Quartus II, ModelSim, Active-HDL, MATLAB, and LabVIEW.
PSA offers the best FPGA/CPLD chips selection accommodating the budget, project complexity, power consumption requirements, and performance. Our hardware solutions are aimed at determining the initial technical and functional requirements, designing schematic diagrams and multilayer printed circuit boards. All development stages are additionally analyzed by technical experts to minimize error risks.
Schematic Diagrams
PSA designs digital and digital/analog schematic diagrams based on modern electronic components for consumer, industrial, automotive, and audio/video telecommunication applications.
Our professional team has designed diagrams for components including the following:
  • Industrial, automotive interface which support such vehicle protocols. (CAN 11, CAN 29, KWP2000, J1850 PWM/VPW, ISO9141)
  • High-speed interfaces. (Ethernet, USB, PCI, LVDS, TDM)
  • Digital audio interfaces. (EBU AES3, AES10)
  • Digital video interfaces. (ITU-R BT.601-656 ISO/IEC 13818-2, CI T1/E1, T3, DVB video technology)
  • Integration with wireless data transfer modules. (WiFi, RFID, Bluetooth)
  • Other hardware interfaces for a high-resolution LCD (TFT, STN) sensor panels.
Printed Circuit Boards
Our company provides services in making PCB layouts of any level of complexity with different BGA components. PSA is designing multilayer printed circuit boards (Class 5 and above), with various types of PCB, analog, digital, high-frequency, single-sided and double-sided printed-circuit-boards using BGA components, controlling impedance.
PSA offers 3D models construction, signal integrity analysis, connections optimization, setting trace parameters and layout rules, layer definition and trace routing (wiring). The layouts are created with CAD software such as MentorGraphics HyperlinX, MentorGraphics Modelsim, PCAD 200x, Signal Vision, and Signal Analyzer.
In case the project requires, our team can investigate and calculate characteristic and differential impedance by using specialized utilities. Development activities are performed in accordance with the IPC standards, adhere to design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-manufacture (DFM) requirements, signal integrity (SI) analysis, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and thermal conditions throughout the entire design cycle.
Hardware Data Encryption
PSA creates designs for hardware data encryption devices, system designs with mechanical packages and CAD, and performs integration of the proprietary algorithms into devices together with embedded software design.
