Engineering Consulting

Speeding Edge’s engineering consulting services address a wide-range of hardware system-level design issues. From trouble-shooting existing designs to helping develop next-generation designs that work right the first time, Speeding Edge’s consulting expertise is unparalled in the industry The first step in our consulting services efforts involves learning as much as possible about your existing problem and/or new design effort. This effort is accomplished via conference calls and review of existing design documentation. Upon that review, Speeding Edge will:


  • Identify the issues that need to be addressed
  • Develop a plan for addressing the issues of concern
  • Provide a time-line for the consulting effort
  • Provide a budget for the consulting effort
  • Upon project completion, ensure that the consulting effort has met all of our customer’s criteria

Our services include providing on-going signal integrity engineering support to several manufacturers of ultra high performance products that include hundreds of signal paths ranging from PCI speeds to 10Gb/S. Providing consulting services on products containing gigabit and higher data paths has become a specialty of Speeding Edge including developing specifications for the IC packages used to house these high-speed circuits.


Speeding Edge has provided efficient solutions to severe EMI problems that have evaded the skills of many EMI “gurus” who have tried the standard fixes in general circulation in the industry. Products that have been fixed range from disc drivers to supercomputers.
