Our extensive experience is rooted in the design and development of devices and systems where reliability, accuracy, and control are paramount to the success to which Arlington Laboratory is so accustomed. Our technical fields of expertise spans down to the device level where electronics, embedded firmware, and communications are particular strengths, and up through the system level where control theory, process modeling, industrial control networks, and reliability integration are all key strengths of Arlington Laboratory.
Technology Fields of Expertise
Sensing and control electronics, embedded intelligence, and industrial networks
Design and deployment of intelligent precision automated systems
We offer a full spectrum of engineering services for electronic product development and deployment. From simple sensor front-ends to complex measurement and control subsystems, Arlington Laboratory’s designs are always distinguished by high performance, reliability, and cost efficiency.
Recent Highlight - Wearable Medical Measurement Device
Arlington Laboratory recently delighted another client with a full Design and Implementation package including: microvolt-level measurement front end, embedded DSP (with Arlington Laboratory transform algorithms), Bluetooth® LE communications, rechargeable battery, stamped and formed spring clips, plastic housings, keypad, and labeling. We also provided the full production and customer documentation packages, established the supply chain, and even provided the retail product packaging designs.
Here are some other examples of Arlington Laboratory designs:
- All Aspects of Instrumentation Engineering
- Electronics Hardware and Software
- Microprocessor and DSP Systems
- Low-noise High-accuracy Sensors
- Integrated Intelligence and Diagnostics
- Closed-Loop Process Controller
- Efficient and Precise DC/DC Converters
- Analog Circuits and Systems
- Communications and Network Interface
- Analog, digital, FPGA and CPLD based designs
- Object Oriented Modeling and Design
- Cost reductions and Reliability improvements
Arlington Laboratory’s hands-on experience in advanced process and equipment control architectures is focused on the design of intelligent sensors, actuators, and electronic subsystems, and integrating these into highly automated intelligent systems.
Our particular system-level design strength is a rigorous knowledge of the interrelated dependencies among the diversity of subsystems in manufacturing and process control applications. Our top-down approach is extremely effective when designing overall system control strategies that optimize: process, material handling, factory integration, distributed intelligence, interlocks, sensors, actuators, and inherent user and equipment safety.
- Advanced Process Control
- Equipment Automation
- Safety Network Systems
- Data Acquisition and Control
- Sensor Integration
- Material Handling Control
We pride ourselves on our ability to reduce complex problems into easily managed solutions with a proven record of success in the field.
Industrial Control Networks
It is essential to understand how control networks differ from office/data networks or wide area networks. Arlington Laboratory is a well-recognized expert in industrial control networks and has been analyzing and developing these network technologies for the the process and manufacturing industries since 1993.
Reports published by Arlington Laboratory have provided the basis by which some of the largest and most progressive suppliers of semiconductor manufacturing systems and subsystems have based their design architectures.
Our unique blend of expertise in communications, hardware, software, control theory, and system integration yield the framework by which we analyze, design, install, and manage successful high-performance, high-reliability industrial control networks.
We also have considerable experience in the design of functional safety fieldbus communication protocols. Arlington Laboratory is an active contributor to both client technologies and international standards for control networks where reliability and human safety assurances are required.
We have developed a top-down approach to data flow analysis that includes all measurement, control, data, and information systems involved in industrial applications. This allows us to recommend and design, with confidence, the right solution for performance, reliability, flexibility, safety, and extensibility.
