What We Do

We engineer advanced products

Software: Firmware, drivers, BSP for Linux, Windows, RTOS. Application software for iOS, Android, Windows, Linux

Hardware: Everything from layout of a simple 4-layer board to turnkey of a 16 layer PCIe Board with a lot of high-speed and other challenges.

Mechanical: Cases, moving parts, test fixtures, industrial equipment

Specialties: Video, Optoelectronic systems (lasers, LEDs, photodiodes, waveguides), Robotics

Schematic Checker

PowerBeam created this schematic checker for internal use, and now we are opening it up to the community. Please suggest common schematic design errors and tell us how to improve it.

What Clients Say About PowerBeam

Anonymous Logo
"PowerBeam provided on time and on budget solution for a complex image processing development system. The program included development of custom FPGA hardware and software. I would highly recommend working with PowerBeam." -- Gregory Kintz, Director of Engineering

Video FPGA Board

Designed a video FPGA board for Anonymous.

Kintex 7 FPGA with high speed video circuitry.

  • PCIe card format
  • 16 layers
  • PowerBeam also wrote the Linux Drivers and a viewing app
  • System software in Python and C++
  • UIs in C++ using Qt
Insite Logo
"You guys are really good. Your team is able to design for high volume manufacturing despite challenging industrial design specification." -- Rana Pratap, Engineering Manager

RFID Antenna

Insite did all of the system design and firmware for a Power Over Ethernet smart RFID antenna. PowerBeam did the majority of the electronic design in Altium and all of the mechanical design in SolidWorks.

The design met the objective for thinness, power, and, most important, cost.

BIDMC Logo
"David Graham and PowerBeam have been fantastic in helping me custom design and build computerized, augmented reality glasses for use in stroke rehabilitation. They have maintained constant contact, updating me on design options, and suggesting modifications, which have improved upon the product while staying on budget and on schedule." -- Dr. Chun Lim, MD, PhD

Neglect Rehabilitation Glasses

These glasses are the first in a series of Augmented Reality displays. They are part of an experiment in stroke rehabilitation. The glasses are the first part of a larger project. PowerBeam worked from verbal interactions with doctors at the Harvard Medical School and Johns Hopkins University.

PowerBeam did all of the design of the glasses:
  • Mechanical design in SolidWorks
  • Electronics in Altium
  • Firmware in C
  • PC Software in C#

We also had to make a near infra-red illuminator, install cameras to track the pupils, and write software in C++ using OpenCV
