Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping

By Greg Curry | Jan 15, 2020

Prototyping includes initial product testing, design optimization, and problem identification and resolution prior to volume production. Rapid prototyping can significantly shorten a new product’s time-to-market, but certain trade-off decisions must be made and production challenges anticipated.
Nuvation Engineering built Mr. Tipsy, an automated drink pouring machine that can make 22 different cocktails. Mr. Tipsy has access to 10 ingredients that are stored in a bar fridge, which uses stepper motors that dispense the prescribed amount for the given drink.

An emerging issue is the bandwidth gap between the major communication interfaces (PCIe, Ethernet, USB, etc.), and the external memory interfaces (typically DDR3/4). FPGAs are becoming more capable with the integration of higher-level functional blocks.
Simulating Embedded Devices
Simulations are widely used to study and come up with solutions to possible problems that could occur in certain systems. If a simulation accurately models an embedded device, it can effectively be used to masquerade in place of the embedded device itself.

Welcome to the Garage

Jul 15, 2018

It’s big, it’s loud, it’s messy. And that’s what we love about it. The Garage is a place where Nuvation's engineers hang out on their spare time to explore ideas, work on personal projects and get creative. From go-karts to beer dispensers, it’s where our team spends a lot of time.

Meet eRex

Jul 16, 2018

eRex is an electric vehicle that Nuvation Engineering started building for the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE. When we could not find a suitable battery management system (BMS) to use in the vehicle, we decided to make one ourselves.
