BLT Engineering Design Services

On time and on Budget

Known for “getting it right the first time” the BLT approach is one of quality by project management, methodology, and project staffing. Our mature methodologies and communication skills often avoid the simple mistakes that can add days, weeks or months to a schedule. When all facets of design and quality are considered, BLT provides designs that are lower in risk and have lower overall development costs.

FPGA Design Services

BLT has been developing Xilinx FPGAs since there was a Xilinx. There is no other firm in the world that has our lineage with Xilinx and does as much design and training. BLT engineers are experts with Xilinx FPGAs and all other major FPGAs on the market.

Our design & development process is centered on our time-proven methodologies and proprietary checklist. Developed over years of experience, these continually developing processes and tools allow BLT to identify & avoid critical path issues before they are able to affect project schedules and budgets. BLT also addresses PCB & System development issues. The BLT development process includes:

  • Assimilation – a thorough understanding of our Client’s design and priorities, typically taking a total of 1 to 3 days to absorb the needed information
  • Architectural review, suggestions and optimization accompanied by a detailed project proposal
  • Device selection and optimization
  • Synchronous implementation and/or re-implementation
  • Critical Timing analysis paired with Functional Simulation
  • Implementation using Xilinx’s and 3rd party tools
  • Final and actual design performance verification

BLT often results in a cost savings because we are frequently able to fit designs in parts that are smaller and slower than the average designer could achieve. Thus the benefits of using BLT continue throughout the life of your product.

Board-level Design Services

More often than not, along with FPGA designs, BLT is providing complete board design, fabrication and turn-key delivery for our Clients. Projects range from standards-based designs through completely custom solutions.

System Design Services

Using our Architecture, Specification, and Planning process, BLT provides complete turn-key system designs. BLT solutions integrate FPGAs, embedded and stand-alone processors, firmware, and software as well as mechanical and thermal design.

SWaP Design Services

With the world going wireless and products expected to do more, faster, with less power, design for SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) is often at the core of many designs.

Reverse Engineering / Re-Engineering Services

From unraveling your company’s own design to that of a competitor or contractor, BLT has the means to help. Often it is far less expensive to re-engineer rather than reverse engineer. But if reverse engineer is called for, BLT has the means to perform.

BLT also satisfies a multitude of non-technical needs of our Clients, effectively allowing BLT to perform as an extension of our Client’s organization. The “bottom line” is that the goals of our Clients and BLT are best achieved when designs are done well, promptly and cost effectively. They illustrate that we really do offer the least expensive, lowest risk and fastest design capabilities available.
