  • Circuit bring-up by our skilled and vastly experienced engineers
    • Full bring-up report identifies problems and suggested design changes
    • Best tools including logic analysers, scopes, current-limited power supplies, surface mount rework station, etc.
  • 5 prototype boards in 90 days


An aircraft company approached Bluewater Systems with a requirement for a new low-power intelligent Linux-based control board. Requirements included two CPU modules with fail-over, WiFi, SPI and I2C interfacing, UARTs, 5-port Ethernet, 3 CAN ports, Squid debug interface for each CPU module and a few other features.

The project from feasibility/specification to delivery of 5 working units with software and documentation was completed in just under 12 weeks. The rev0 boards functioned substantially as expected and the customer was able to continue with its programme using this board.
