Electronic Design and Manufacturing: Product Development & PCB Boards in Edmonton and Calgary

Product Development

Kettle 3D Model Prototype

Trinity’s engineers work with our customers to create new products. The ideas may be scratched on the back of the proverbial napkin or defined in a 100-page document. They meet with our customers to create a proposal that covers all areas of the product. This proposal includes drawings, packaging, cabling, printed circuit boards, software, and instruction manuals. The next step is to produce a prototype for customer evaluation. The first prototype may or may not be close to the production model, depending on the complexity of the product. In most cases, this will be followed by a pre-production prototype to iron out the wrinkles in the production version. Connect with us to discuss your project needs for PCB boards in Edmonton, Calgary and throughout Alberta.

Electronic Design

Sequencer 5

Trinity Electronics has successfully completed more than 700 projects over the last 35 years. Designs range from very simple (a single chip water level monitor) to very complex (systems for diagnosing hydroelectric power generating plants). We provide the right level of technology to solve each problem at the right price.

Trinity Electronics has also successfully created products for the retrofit markets. Suppose the original manufacturer goes out of business, drops the product line, or refuses to make modifications for a customer. In that case, Trinity Electronics can engineer a custom product that fits the customer’s application exactly or even provides enhanced functionality… often at a much better price. Please see the list of clients we have worked with in the past.

Printed Circuit Board Design

A printed circuit board or PCB is a board used to connect electronic components. Most of Trinity Electronics’ products are based on printed circuit boards. The boards range from simple, single-sided boards with a few passive components to multi-board, multi-layer packages. The boards’ components may be surface mount, through-hole, or frequently, a combination of both component types. The general purpose of PCB boards is to connect all the components that a particular device may need with the help of different materials. It’s the most efficient and complex way to provide functionality to a device.

“I highly recommend Trinity for any board design projects.”
– Clarence Rozak, Baker Atlas Canada.

Common Uses of Printed Circuit Boards

Do you know almost everyone uses devices that incorporate printed circuit boards without knowing it? The main applications for printed circuit boards are:

LEDs: They are preferred in both commercial and residential settings due to being energy efficient and helping to transfer heat away from the bulb. Since high temperature makes LEDs burn out faster, PCB boards made of aluminum eliminate the need for an extra heat sink.

Industrial equipment: The industrial sector uses printed circuit boards made of thermal-resistant durable metals that are often thicker than typical PCB boards. This material makes them durable and high-powered to handle harsh conditions.

Medical devices: PCB plays a huge role in devices that are being used for diagnostics, treatment, monitoring, and more.

Consumer electronics: Computers, smartphones, and many other consumer products that we use daily require PCBs.  These products would not exist without PCBs.  As most manufacturers are producing smaller smartphones, small PCBs with a high volume of connections will be in high demand in the future.

Safety equipment: Many aspects of security systems rely on PCBs. From smoke detectors and electronic door locks to security cameras, PCB boards play an essential role in many different types of security equipment. We have been engaged in numerous interesting projects for the past 35 years. To check the kind of projects we have been part of, check out the gallery before you get in touch with us regarding your projects.

Hazardous Location (Hazloc) Design

Trinity Electronics has designed hazardous location equipment for over 30 years. Our designs include explosion proof and intrinsically safe equipment for both Division 1 or Division 2 areas. Designs include communications equipment, gas well controls, cabinet heaters, pump controls, and industrial timers.

Microprocessor Software Development

Fuel Pump

The company has focused on the PIC series of microprocessor’s from Microchip but other processor families are used when the job calls for it. Hundreds of projects have left the company with thousands of lines of reusable code which speeds the development of new software. The PIC series has proven to be a wonderful choice due to its low power consumption, high speed, low cost, extended temperature range, on-board memory and single chip configuration.

Contract Manufacturing

PCB Stuffing

Although not a contract manufacturer by strict definition, the business model that Trinity Electronics seeks is to both design and manufacture products for our customers. Product volumes range from a single unit to 10,000 pieces per year. If it’s economical, products may be subcontracted to a contract manufacturer.

Trinity Electronics will still monitor the manufacturing to ensure that manufacturing quality is maintained.
