PCB Design


Nuvation architects and develops digital and mixed-signal printed circuit boards (PCBs). We have an impressive track record for first-time-right PCBs, including high-speed, high-density, analog, and RF and wireless designs.

We have been involved is a wide variety of design projects for industries like Defense and Aerospace, Medical Devices, Energy and Power, and Broadcast Video.

Our services include PCB layout and prototyping, pre-production design verification, regulatory certification, test fixture development, and transition to offshore manufacturing.


  • High speed, multi-layer digital PCB designs (e.g.: Fibre channel FC8, FDR InfiniBand, PCI Express Gen 3, HDMI, SATA, XAUI)
  • High frequency RF PCB designs
  • High-speed parallel (e.g. DDR memory interfaces, proprietary FPGA and DSB buses)
  • High-density/high-pincount designs, involving advanced PCB technology (E.g. microvias, via-in-pad, ultra-fine pitch BGAs)
  • Low level analog PCB designs
  • Memory interfaces (e.g.: DDR2, DDR3, DDR4)
  • Mixed-signal boards requiring noise/power isolation
  • Signal Integrity – pre and post-layout analysis and verification
  • Impedance-controlled, transducer-interfacing, and sensitive signal designs
  • RoHS/WEEE compliant Lead (Pb)-Free designs
  • DFM for high-yield, low-cost production
  • DFT (ICT coverage, JTAG test vector development)
  • DFx for volume production (including BIST and test fixtures)
  • EOL and cost-reduction redesigns
  • Quick-turn projects
