Electric Vehicle charging case study - post design for London Olympics 

"Everything worked perfectly, as it has through all the bulk testing done at every site.”

Geoff Chapman, Director at ChargePoint


BikeHud case study – Arm-based microcontroller


“ByteSnap understood our vision - our original specification was for a limited, single purpose device, but now, thanks to ByteSnap, the product we are taking to market is wholly different to what we started out with.  ByteSnap took the time to understand our vision for Bike HUD, building flexibility into the design let us reach new markets, create accessory products easily and reduce time-to-market."

Dave Vout, MD of BikeSystems


ByteSnap Design has completed a number of design projects for the automotive and rail sectors, including a Head-Up Display for motorcycle helmets, HGV tracking and information systems, bus ticketing machines incorporating telemetry and RFID and bus information systems.

ByteSnap Design electronics engineers help clients to benefit from the latest software and hardware development techniques and tools when introducing new products to market or updating existing devices. Having worked with both established companies and start-ups including Ticketer, Vix and Bike Systems, we have successfully guided our clients through their automotive electronics requirements and the product development lifecycle.

As the use of electric vehicles increases, ByteSnap’s experience in developing new electronics and software for GE charging posts to meet LOCOG’s requirements for the Summer 2012 Olympic Games puts them at the forefront of electronics design in this field. The team redesigned the existing posts, adding control and metering software and hardware – significantly enhancing the post’s capabilities.

Our experience encompasses embedded systems for the automotive aftermarket sector, including telemetry, telematics, nativagtion and tracking. For the rail sector, we can provide low power radio solutions to cover remote monitoring and data logging.


Ability to handle complex automotive design challenges

Automotive designs have a number of challenges. Wide temperature range, dirty power sources, a requirement for very low standby power, good EMI noise immunity. ByteSnap has a long track record in successfully meeting these challenges on a wide variety of vehicles from motorbikes through to HGVs.
