Design & Develop

Creating the future rather than just talking about it is what drives us.

If you’re looking for a truly cost-effective and time-efficient route to new product introduction, with clarity of purpose from the get-go, we can support you right through to production.

Our multi-disciplinary team has many years of experience of electronic product design…..both in function delivery and aesthetics. Precision and Accuracy designed in and subsequently built-in in manufacturing is a must. CW Applied Technology (Shannon) Ltd came into being as a result of a Management Buy Out from Connor Winfield Ltd on June 1 2015 but it has had its roots in the 15 years that proceeded that date both in terms of its skills and its values. During that time we had focused primarily on the design, manufacture and sales of high precision components and modules in the timing field of telecommunications. Products such as GPS timing references with integrated antennae that enable synchronization for externally available T1 and E1 signals for example, highly stable and reliable oscillator based products for synchronization holdover, IoT/M2M Gateway products based on GSM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and Differential GPS Navigation products with antennae and amplifiers for military applications (more info at , a Connor Winfield brand we developed). Along with product developments (and associated CE certification requirements etc) such as these, we manufactured the products also to exacting military standards.
In the years since the MBO, we have worked on innovation across a broad sweep of industries, servicing blue chip clients such as Bentley to start-ups who are not house-hold names and so many more in between. Through collaboration with this broad range of companies from blue-chip to lone inventors, we have developed detailed design and engineering solutions for a breakthrough suite of products that deliver on the defined objectives & commercial goals. This has involved integration of various new and older technologies the ones that push the limits of technology or have been tried in a different guise before.
In all cases, we research, source and invest in the best technologies ensuring you can stay ahead of your competition. Our broad industrial experience has given us vast experience of technologies such as sensors, chipsets, motors and more, which lends speed to product development.


PCB Layout

 PCB layout services is one of the ways that we help our customers get to market faster. Our design team has very significant real world experience designing PCBs for both performance and manufacturability.

We can provide quickly a full set of Gerber and drawings, particularly if you:
(i). Need a PCB layout from design schematics you have created.
(ii). Have an existing design that needs to be updated, changed, or optimized for cost effective assembly.
(iii). Need a new PCB design, from concept to production ready with full design documentation.

Electronics Design

Our Digital and Analog Design Capabilities Include:


(a) Design Specification Creation based on broad Concept definition.
(b) Circuit Design and Schematic creation
(c) Design for manufacturability
(d) Firmware development
(e) Prototype test and evaluation
(f) Reverse engineering
(g) Component Analysis and Evaluation
(h) Compliance and Value Engineering
(i) Product re-design in event of component obsolescence/ EOL
(j) Test equipment design and evaluation.


Product Re-Engineering

We offer a product re-engineering service whereby we analyse the failure pattern of your product and evaluate alternative solutions to modify/correct the existing design. As competition and rising customer expectations continue to increase the pressure on all manufacturers and with diminishing margin due to increasing customer dissatisfaction or in-field failures, we seek to offer an alternative product improvement/correction process…alternative that is to product replacement/ new model launch. We can revise your current product design documentation to incorporate the corrective measures, manufacture prototypes, test and release to manufacturing with your approval.

Product & Mechanical Design

Our Mechanical/Product Engineering Capabilities Include:

(1) Packaging, Enclosure, and Industrial Design
(2) Detailed Mechanical Design
(3) Stress Analysis/ Shock/Vibration Simulation if required.
(4) Thermal Simulation
(5) Material and Component Selection
(6) Solid Model production


Embedded Software and Firmware Development

CW Applied Technology develops embedded software and firmware for widely used microcontrollers and invests significant time and resources in the research and prototyping of hardware communication protocols, both wired and wireless.

A cross section of the type of work we do in this area would be….
(1) Bespoke firmware based on product functional specifications.
(2) Product management function.
(3) Integration of new/additional modules with new protocols.
(4) Data exchange protocols for product communication.


Providing Design for all Desirable Attributes (DFX) feedback early in the process ensures that your product design is positioned for optimal manufacturability at the lowest possible cost. Our engineering design services will update your design details as changes are proposed and accepted, supporting your technical department to ensure your documentation remains current.

IoT Products and Platforms

As you are no doubt aware at this point, the Internet of Things, or IoT, is a system of inter-connected digitally enabled objects, animals or people that are provided with the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. An IoT platform then connects such enabled devices and sensors, provides security and authentication and enables the storage and analysis of the data being communicated from the digitally enabled objects, animals or people. We, working in conjunction with approved partners, develop IoT platforms to meet your needs. Talk to us about your needs in this space today.
