Do you need help with an embedded system? Our team has been working with Perth Embedded Systems since the early 1990s. During this time we have worked with microcontroller (MCU) and Micro-Processor Unit (MPU) and Digital Signal Processing (DSP), such as STM32F4, MSP430, Atmel, PIC, LPC and ARM. We are use to working with COTS devices such as OMAP, BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi and Arduino or in-house custom embedded systems. We have also had experience rolling our own real-time operating systems, however still prefer to use COTS such as RTLinux, VxWorks, RTOS and GreenHill. We also consider ourselves Linux experts due to our experience with the Linux kernel, filesystem and extensive knowledge and experience of Linux command line tools and packages. Using the embedded system to read sensors and/or control motors in real-time via various signal processing methods is a very common task for us.
So if you need a custom embedded system built from scatch, or just need further work on an existing embedded system, feel free to contact us. We have much experience designing circuits with MCU's, MPU's or DSP alone using ti.com Design Tools for buck-boost converters, lowpass/highpass filters, and power management IC (PMIC). And when it comes to loading the operating system (possible real-time based) and writting the firware/software, we have that all covered too - programming is also one of our strengths.
Electronics is an art our team has been working with since childhood (from building kits from Dicksmith, Tandy, and Jaycar to designing digital electronic keypads). Since then, we have maintained a constant update of knowledge and experience on the topic, since most of our projects involve either building a circuit from scatch, reviewing circuit designs, programming for target microcontrollers, and/or reworking pre-built PCB's for various needs such as bypassing/hacking solutions, or replacing broken components.
Our primary developer Luke Cole has a history as the "go to man" for many colleagues, and is well known to have "a knack for making things work". To learn more about Luke see his LinkedIn page or personal home page.
The CTO of COLETEK (Luke Cole) originally worked for Hemisphere GPS as a "Robotics Engineer" implementing auto-guidance solutions for agriculture tractors and quadbikes.
Luke Cole also worked at Location Aware Technologies (433) developing indoor tracking devices. And also worked for leading research institutes such as NICTA, CSIRO and ANU Robotics System Lab (lead by Alex Zelinsky).
Lance Cole has also worked at NICTA and has a background of various hardware development, such as working for a contract company to the US millary (EOS), building the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).
Perth is a town in the north-east of Tasmania, Australia. It lies 20 km south of Launceston, on the Midland Highway. The town has a population of 1,984 and is averaging a 1% increase per year (2001 census). Perth is part of the Northern Midlands Council. Federal Lyons MHR Dick Adams also has an office in the town.
It is the first major town out of Launceston on the route to Hobart, and also serves as a major junction for people bypassing Launceston on the route from Hobart to the north west of the state.
Like nearby Longford, Perth is a historic town with many buildings dating back to the early 1800s.
Perth is the capital and largest city of Western Australia. With a population of 1,650,000 (2009), Perth ranks fourth amongst the nation's cities, with a growth rate consistently above the national average.
Perth was founded on 12 June 1829 by Captain James Stirling as the political centre of the free settler Swan River Colony. It has continued to serve as the seat of Government for Western Australia to the present day. Its port, Fremantle is a city in its own right and slightly older than Perth.
The metropolitan area is located in the south west of the continent between the Indian Ocean and a low coastal escarpment known as the Darling Range. The central business district and suburbs of Perth are situated on the Swan River. Perth is ranked 4th on The Economist's 2008 list of the World's Most Livable Cities.
Perth became known worldwide as the "City of Lights" as city residents lit their houselights and streetlights as American astronaut John Glenn passed overhead while orbiting the earth on Friendship 7 in 1962. The city repeated its feat as Glenn passed overhead on the Space Shuttle in 1998
