SynaptiCAD Services is part of SynaptiCAD, a company founded in 1992 to provide high quality, low cost electronic design automation (EDA) software. SynaptiCAD has since grown to provide a large array of products in the EDA space. We've also expanded our services business to areas that are outside of EDA while leveraging our tools and products to benefit other engineering disciplines. We can handle projects in aerospace, mechanical, electrical, computer, and systems engineering. We also have specialty areas of expertise like turbomachinery, blockchain software, and time & event simulation.

Simple and straightforward:

  1. Give us a call or send us an email for an initial conversation.
  2. We'll get an NDA drafted and signed between all parties.
  3. Further conversation and exchange of documents detailing needs.
  4. Written proposal from us describing the work we'll do, timeline, and cost.
  5. We do the work and provide updates on progress.
  6. Finish work and provide demonstrations and deliverables.
  7. Standby to answer questions and provide followup. We don't go away, and we usually do this for free. For larger requests, we'll go back to step 3.

The 3 week prototype:

We offer our customers the "3 week prototype". Give us your problem as best you can and we'll provide a prototype in 3 weeks or less at no obligation. If you like what you see, we'll sign a contract and finish the work.
