Semiconductors have been instrumental in revolutionizing the creation of new products on one hand, and on the other to ensure its benefits reach the masses. Today, semiconductors power every product from the common place to the complex.
Semiconductors have become sophisticated platforms that enable rapid product development that are catalyzing disruption. Semiconductor vendors must devise ways to obtain the expertise to manage complex software that changes much faster than the underlying silicon platforms.
RK Telesystem provides its customers the ability to integrate third-party solutions and perform extensive testing of the final product to ensure a zero-defect launch.
RK Telesystem has proven design methodologies in designing multi-layer analog/RF/high speed digital, mixed signal and high power PCBs boards to ensure first pass success.RK Telesystem’s hardware design capabilities and lab capacity have been built and refined over two decades and enriched with partnerships to provide spec-to-product engineering services to clients.
