LCR Embedded Systems’ position as the go-to supplier for the most unique design and manufacturing challenges has given us an unparalleled ability to perform analysis and optimization well beyond that offered by our competitors. Thanks to this experience, our customers can enjoy the advantages of field-proven, standards-based form factors no matter how demanding their particular requirements may be.

Having lived on the cutting edge of design and manufacture for so long has also given us a profound level of insight into the overall landscape of design and applications — what kinds of solutions work best for which applications today, and how those solutions are likely to evolve tomorrow. The graduate-level research experience of our technical staff further enhances this insight, resulting in a variety of research and development activities on topics of pressing concern to our customers, including those listed below.

If you have any questions about our research-related activities, we’ll be happy to discuss them with you. Please contact us at [email protected].

Waste Energy Harvesting: Shock/Vibration and Thermal Energy

RDRuggedThe environments in which our equipment must operate can be both uniformly harsh and wildly varying, as in the case of a submarine’s bulkhead-mounted embedded system which must continue to operate whether the vessel is cruising uneventfully or being subjected to violent and highly discontinuous impulses like depth charges or mines. As the pioneers who brought the performance benefits of AdvancedTCA to harsh environments through rugged design, LCR Embedded Systems has created several novel shock isolation systems, and continues to research new ways to allow critical systems to operate safely and securely despite the most unexpected challenges, and even to make use of the unwanted mechanical energy created by shock and vibration.even for putting waste heat to constructive use.
