In its Rockville, Maryland office, SECO USA features a multidisciplinary design team of electrical, software, mechanical, and system engineers. Each project is led by a project manager experienced in guiding cross-functional design teams through the development of electronic products.

In delivering electronic circuitry and devices for a wide range of applications, SECO USA has developed the following core competencies:

  • Embedded product development for challenging environments
  • Battery operated device design
  • Low power and power efficient circuit design
  • Human-machine interface implementation – displays, touchscreens, buttons
  • Rugged and ergonomic device packaging
  • Wireless communications, including multiradio device design
  • Product qualification and certification testing
  • Operating system modification for security and remote management/updates 
  • Intrinsically safe circuit design for explosive environments

SECO's product design process takes a system engineering approach.

An intensive technical interchange meeting at project kickoff investigates product use cases, environments, and high level specifications, which are distilled into a set of implementable product requirements.

Price/performance trade-offs are made where necessary. Once the product requirements are settled, the product implementation process commences.

SECO has successfully designed, qualified, and delivered product across a wide range of challenging operational requirements – from government-mandated electromagnetic compliance to military spec ruggedness to industry specific regulations. Examples include:

  • FCC Part 15 (US), CE (European Union), IC (Canada), other regions
  • MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-464, MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1472 
  • Cellular: PTCRB, GFC, specific carriers
  • Explosive atmospheres: ATEX, IECEx, UL 
  • Medical: IEC 60601, EN 62304, IEC 62366, FDA regulations
  • Transportation: AREMA Part 11.5.1, ATCS specification 110
