Communication Systems

Communications Systems are intrinsic to our heritage as providers of bespoke solutions. The effective exchange of information in our technology allows seamless integration into wider networks or as standalone ready to implement systems.

Our multidisciplinary “ground up” approach enables us to clearly identify our client’s requirements and work collaboratively across their system. Whether it is adapting existing networks for new markets or inputs, configuring technology for a specific desired use or designing new applications entirely; our team, paired with our laboratory and testing capabilities, can give our clients world-leading communication technologies.

Profile


Richard Emmerson, Senior Consultant, Communications Systems

“There is a wide availability of standards-based radio modules and integrated circuits. This makes adding wireless connectivity a seemingly less daunting task for many hardware developers. Unfortunately, adding this technology without proper experience of radio design can often lead to costly mistakes and programme delays. For systems incorporating multiple radio standards, the risk is even greater.

Plextek has built its business on communications technology, and we offer design support throughout the product lifecycle. This might include specifying the most suitable radio standard or designing a bespoke system through to product approvals and manufacturing.”
