DVK has engineered a number of reference designs and evaluation boards for the semiconductor industry. DVK has developed a variety of PCB's for engineering teams to test and evaluate devices without the evaluation board adversely affecting device performance.
Numerous test points are designed in to aid the customer in evaluation. Components are usually placed on one side of the board when possible. Evaluation boards are an excellent way for the customer to evaluate complex products. Having an evaluation board will greatly reduce the customer's design risk.
DVK has expertise in all aspects of communications architecture and design, modulation techniques, RF transceiver development, protocol software/firmware, RF ASICS, system integration, industrial design/packaging, and transition into production.
