Research is, but its nature, earlier in the curve than product development. Leading edge technology, that has not been commercially tested, is pursued and subjected to stringent peer review, before being pushed to the development engineers for productization. This environment typically suits subject matter specialists pursuing advanced academic credentials.


Our engineers are a cross-disciplinary team with a deep understanding of advanced technologies, product development, electronics manufacturing, and the Blockchain industry.
