Custom electronic design takes up a significant part of engineering services we provide. Our team could be your experienced electronic design consultant who will guide you through the process from TRL-3 to TRL-8. We have experience designing and manufacturing custom electronic products in more than 20 industries. Our engineers develop PCBs with communication modules, power electronics and battery management systems, industrial automation, and build internet of things networks. We utilize IoT cloud systems like AWS, Azure, GCP, and others to develop a sufficient IoT device.
Our electronic design services include custom PCB design, POC development, testing particular units or features, manufacturing the final PCB, and uploading firmware on it. As a result, you will get a fully functional electronic module or Internet of Things device and a set of documents for mass production.

As a result, you will get a fully functional electronic module or Internet of Things device and a set of documents for mass production. Our team can start working on your project at any stage. You can reach out to us if you need to optimize a components list, cut down on power consumption, and enhance signal stability. Based on our 10 years of industry expertise, we will offer the best way to go about the task.
Electronics development at EnCata includes 8 stages:
1. Requirements elicitation
2. Electronics development
- Development of the PCB layout
- PCB design
- FW and SW development
3. Prototyping and assembly
5. Composing design documentation for mass production
6. Samples testing after production
6. Documenting changes and updates
Electronic product design services are a part of our holistic approach to a new product development. Electronic development projects are supported by mechanical engineers, simulation engineers, designers, and technicians. You don't have to reach out to many outsourcers. Our expertise enables us to develop the product ecosystem and lower the risks associated with incorporating the electronic component.
We consider business processes specifics when launching new products to the market. While you handle the workings of your business, our experts will be developing your product. EnCata will offer your company complete product development services in both hardware and software domains along with excellent in-house prototyping resources. We will help you turn your ideas into a full-fledged product.
Our portfolio includes 150+ electronics design projects in 20+ industries, including the Internet of Things, Consumer and Wearable devices, Aerospace, Robotics, Agriculture, Air Filtration and Purification devices, and others.Our expertise enables us to assess projects in 5–10 days and make use of the accumulated knowledge in order to avoid making the same mistakes as in previous projects.
EnCata works with both fixed term and agile contracts.
EnCata employs around 30 engineers with Master's and PhD degrees in electrical and industrial design, mechanical engineering, prototyping and manufacturing from European universities. Each employee is an expert in his or her field.
The majority of specialists are of middle or senior levels. Their range of influence is broad enough to encompass the entire new product lifecycle. Our specialists resolve legal and certification difficulties during the concept stage, optimize production costs during the 3D model development process and create necessary documentation for firmware support. Juniors make up only 15% of the team. They constantly upgrade their qualifications under the supervision of seniors.
EnCata is always willing to work with its client. We have everything we need to create a collaborative site. Both parties can work on the project simultaneously. The Customer, for instance, and his/ her team designs the electronics while we work on the enclosure. When teams work together to achieve a fantastic result, it is always a win scenario.
EnCata’s team is always willing to discuss all the necessary details about the project proposed. Our full-fledged team of professionals will interrogate you until both parties are satisfied with the procedures necessary to complete the job.
It certainly can. For any product, EnCata creates a design documentation package and a process documentation package that is suited to the production. It should be noted, however, that the technologists at the customer's chosen plant may make changes or impose their own requirements on the documentation design. EnCata, in turn, makes it easier for the client and the technologist to communicate. EnCata does not mass produce, although it can undertake small-scale production at the request of customers.
Yes. As a highly professional design and engineering firm, we make sure that all discussions with our clients and all information regarding your invention, idea and other proprietary information are kept confidential.
We follow a LEAN approach in product and business development and thus we strongly recommend patent filings only after you are at least part-way through development. This is because patenting is expensive and early patents can already become obsolete or irrelevant later in the development phase. Typically, EnCata's work generates many patentable opportunities for our clients and the best strategy is to file patents at TRL-7, i.e. when early beta prototype is ready and when a startup is ready to start batch production and marketing.There is, however, another strategy, which is to use provisional patents which can be loose and are not to be disclosed to the public for 18 months. These are much less expensive and time consuming, generally costing below $500.
EnCata will always sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement and keep your intellectual property confidential during the development phase and then we can recommend several third-party patent attorneys when the time is right.
Our in-house professionals handle almost all electronics work, including interface design, protocol development, communication design, schematic design, PCB Design, Firmware design and battery management. If the Customer requires a service that Encata does not supply, we have partners that can meet that need.
We certainly do. EnCata employs electronics specialists who deal with low-level firmware. We also have experts on staff who can implement high-level software code.
EnCata employs 12 mechanical and industrial designers and 10 electrical engineers with experience in hardware and firmware. Our team consists of middle and senior level engineers, who have 5+ years of field expertise and have already completed more than 300 projects.
1. Once you have approached us with the project, we conclude the NDA and send the information to the Sales Manager for further evaluation and project planning.
2. The Sales Manager or Sales Engineer will contact you to clarify your goals, requirements and tasks to accomplish. This process is very close to business analysis. When the details are agreed with you, a cost estimate and a quotation are prepared.
3. If you accept the quotation, we will prepare a Technical design specification to document scope of work and requirements and conclude an agreement.
4. After we've signed the agreements, we'll assign you a Project Manager who will gather a project team and report on the project progress.
We do indeed help with fundraising through our large business network. However, we typically recommend startups to our partner VCs after we have done some work for the startup and learned more about the team and their core technology. This feedback and recommendation is of great value to all of the friendly VCs as it saves them much time and effort for due diligence.
