Explore What We Do Best

Our engineers focus on the areas that are most impactful for complex projects.

IoT & Communications

We live in a highly-connected world. The Internet of Things, or IoT, ties the world together with sophisticated communication protocols and multi-faceted use cases. Your connected product must interoperate here. Efficiently. Safely. And securely.

Embedded Systems Development Service

In today’s complex design space, devices are built upon combinations of 8-bit microcontrollers, FPGA’s, DSP’s, GPU’s, C/C++ code, mobile apps, and enterprise backends. You need a partner who is well-versed with these complex designs.

System Architecture

The reliability of complex systems are often determined very early in the development process. Is the architecture appropriate? Does it cover the system requirements? How will the device be tested? Maintained? Updated? Your team can rely upon nFocal’s extensive experience here to avoid costly pitfalls.

Systems Engineering Service

With increasingly short time-to-launch windows, market forces can be quite unforgiving when you build the wrong product. Drawing upon our extensive experience with requirements and systems engineering, nFocal can guide your development program in the right direction.

What is Engineering Design?

Systems Engineering has its own world-wide professional society named the International Council on Systems Engineering. This society is better known as INCOSE.

According to INCOSE, Systems Engineering focuses on:

  • establishing, balancing and integrating stakeholders’ goals, purpose and success criteria, and defining actual or anticipated customer needs, operational concept and required functionality, starting early in the development cycle;
  • establishing an appropriate lifecycle model, process approach and governance structures, considering the levels of complexity, uncertainty, change, and variety;
  • generating and evaluating alternative solution concepts and architectures;
  • baselining and modeling requirements and selected solution architecture for each phase of the endeavor;
  • performing design synthesis and system verification and validation;
  • while considering both the problem and solution domains, taking into account necessary enabling systems and services, identifying the role that the parts and the relationships between the parts play with respect to the overall behavior and performance of the system, and determining how to balance all of these factors to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
