At SLTF, our specialty is measurement devices and
instruments, i.e., products that measure, analyze, or
control something. Many of our designs use light absorption,
fluorescence, and scattering to glean information. We limit
ourselves to 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers.
With these microcontrollers, we are experts at marrying
the software/firmware and electronics together into a
tight-knit design. This expertise on the electronics side
includes analog to digital converters (A/D), digital to
analog converters (D/A), serial communications, HID USB, LCD
displays, serial EEPROM and flash memories, thermistors and
thermocouples, and keypad interfacing.
Another specialty of ours is the user's interface with
the instrument. We have lots of experience in designing
intuitive, simple-to-use interfaces with limited display and
