"Your Product Development in Safe Hands"

Systems Engineering and Electronics Development
Tactiq's electronics expertise continues to give our client's a real competitive edge in world class product development.

Systems Engineering & Electronics Development


Tactiq's services and proven capabilities cover the complete product development lifecycle from concept through component selection, schematics, costing, simulation, prototyping, validation, productionising and field support. Our product development lifecycle is compliant with IEC 62304, IEC 61508 and SPICE to ensure regulatory, quality and commercial requirements.


It is vital that the architecture integrates the system, software and electronics needs to ensure minimum cost, maximum flexibility combined with a smooth development path. Our electronics design experience ranges from small, compact, high performance modules to large industrial and medical equipment platforms mostly for real-time applications.



Track Record
Our Approach

From the outset we ensure a full understanding of the products' purpose and operating environment. Using a total system engineering approach we produce an early design concept and top level architecture to frame the development work. Modelling and simulation are used to identify potential issues early and give confidence in both architecture and performance.


Optimum Technology Selection

Tactiq continuously evaluates the latest technologies and keeps abreast of advances in design methodologies and tools. For each project we evaluate the leading edge technologies alongside the more standardised, proven components and processes. We ensure the right technology choices are made to support the product function, performance, reliability and cost requirements.


Our experience and intelligence in electronics design delivers exceptional results in demanding applications often with highly restrictive space and power requirements.

Track Record

Tactiq have a history of taking on tough challenges and delivering exceptional results, some example projects are shown below:


  • We designed the system architecture for a GE Nuclear Medicine scanner including wireless accessories. This was a platform based electronics design which supports a large family of products now in use globally.
  • Tactiq designed the full architecture and electronics for a digital active noise cancellation unit. In the early stages of this ground-breaking project, we produced a concept demonstrator board linked to a DSP development board to successfully prove our proposal worked. Taking this forward we met the demanding criteria including stringent pricing, low power consumption, high performance and very limited space.
  • For a real-time optical measuring Class IIa pupillometer, Tactiq led the system design including architecture, control electronics and power supply. After successful prototyping, debugging and performance analysis in our lab, this innovative device was approved by the MHRA and launched into clinical evaluation.
