Edge Scientific is a electrical design firm that helps startups and established businesses worldwide build custom electronics and mobile applications. We have a track record of turning great ideas into profitable and effective products, and we favor candid communication over intimidating techno-speak.
Headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado, our team looks forward to talking with you about your project, and how we can help bring the right product to reality, while saving you time and money.
In my 35+ year career, Edge Scientific are the consultants that stand out; they always supplied our requirements in a timely, efficient and technically saavy manner, even with constantly changing targets.
— Ed Schroeder, Engineering Manager, VorTek Instruments
Highly skilled professionals in Electrical design and embedded logic programming.
— Craig Metzner, VP Engineering, Veeco
Edge Scientific served as a primary and key contributor to our Medical Device development project. Customized PCBA, wiring harness and proper embedded code were key to the program. Edge Scientific executed on every aspect while we managed the technical risk register through a highly flexible development cycle.

High Voltage 3kV Supply
Another cost reduction. High voltage supplies from Emco were designed into a static plate design. However, these were long lead and had a bit of a markup. This board was designed to be a drop-in replacement for an existing module, bringing the cost of components down from 0 to , along with using all off-the-shelf parts.
Cost reduction - Dual 300V Supply
In order to cost reduce an existing design (designing out some Ultravolt module supplies), Edge prototyped this board which derived two +/-300V supplies capable of driving an Apex PA94. This took the cost from about 800 USD total for two Ultravolt AA supplies to about 60 USD in parts for this supply.
Multi-Channel TEC Controller
One of our clients wanted us to drive their multi-channel TEC platform. This card drives 20 TEC channels bidirectionally at up to 12V and 5A, keeping 0.1°C temperature accuracy.
Cell Counting Electronics Development
Beckman Coulter chose Edge Scientific to get a jump on their next particle counting system. The electronics design allowed their electrical team to get out in front of the software development, drastically shortening the development timeline.
Flow Cytometer Amplifier
One of our clients had us design a high voltage amplifier to driver their first-generation flow cytometer. This allowed their core team to focus on software and FPGA development, while we were able to supply from one of our core competencies.
Veeco Slider Electronics
Veeco's unparalleled hard drive read head grinding machine got a major upgrade, allowing them to read 138 built-in wafer resistances to 0.1% accuracy across temperature in less than 10ms. This also increased system reliability by swapping high pin-count cables with one flex-circuit based board.
Agile Mobile Supply
A power supply was needed that could operate a PC from multiple power sources. This supply had 5 adjustable outputs that could supply 5-24V at 10A, and could be powered from up to 4 batteries, an AC input, or a vehicle supply from 12-24V DC. Battery capacity was kept track of by on-board coulomb counters.
Vision board / Embedded PC Breakout
A custom PCB was needed to break out some IO connections for an Advantech embedded PC, as well as provide a touch panel interface and backlighting for a computer vision system.
