Explore What We Do Best
Our engineers focus on the areas that are most impactful for complex projects.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We often wish that people would ask us a better, and more relevant, set of questions to vet us out more thoroughly. Here are the top four questions that we wish people would ask us.
We were reminded recently about a post that Daniel Goleman wrote in LinkedIn several years ago entitled Leaders are made, not born. For those of you that are not familiar with Daniel Goleman, he is the author of Emotional Intelligence, one of the most influential books in psychology in the last 50

We could postulate that there are two types of people in the world: those that plan, and those that don’t. The first type sees a task before them, and mentally works through the task on paper or in their head to its logical conclusion, considering each decision and consequent branch,
As consultants, we live and die by requirements, use cases, and user stories. The logic for their use is as follows: We perform professional services for our clients, which usually involves some type of software development. The end result of this relationship is that the client is happy and we
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.
Over the past 6 years, my team has been working with nFocal on many different projects. We rely on their professionalism to work independently or part of a larger team. From small projects to large they deliver consistently with high quality
