Greetings from CEPD:
CEPD offers a wide range of consulting services
targeted at providing cost effective design options for our clients. This year we have been very active in
the world of data acquisition, reliability analysis, fluid measurement,
automated battery control and much more.
From system concept through design implementation, including
hardware, mechanical and software design, PCB layout, assembly and turn-key
production, our staff draws on years of diverse product experience to
provide creative, and timely solutions for your product needs.
This newsletter is your source of news about the products and
services we provide.
Our new PicoUSB board is now
ready to ship. The PicoUSB development board allows you to program the
following 44-pin PLCC Altera programmable logic devices:
Pico USB board can also be used as a JTAG device programmer. Click on PicoUSB for more information.
Our C3 FPGA/PCI Development Board has been redesigned to interface
with our digital radio kit. This board provides a platform for fast and
easy prototyping and design verification. It can be accessed either through
the PCI bus or powered stand alone and accessed through an RS232 port. The
C3 FPGA/PCI comes with an onboard configuration PROM to retain the FPGA
settings, an RS232 level shifter, voltage monitor, oscillator, buttons, and
LEDs. Click on C3 FPGA/PCI for more
Our new Spartan
3 FPGA/PCI Development Board has been redesigned to interface with our
new digital radio kit. This board provides a platform for fast and easy
prototyping and design verification. It can be accessed either through the
PCI bus or powered stand alone and accessed through an RS232 port. The
Spartan 3 FPGA/PCI comes with an onboard configuration PROM to retain the
FPGA settings, an RS232 level shifter, voltage monitor, oscillator,
buttons, and LEDs. Click on Spartan 3 FPGA/PCI for more information.
We have two versions of our Digital
Radio Kit ready to ship! Each kit consists of a PCI board, an FPGA
board and a high speed analog board bundled together. Click on Spartan 3 DRK and C3 DRK for more information.

This year, our company has been
very active in several engineering fields:
Radiated Emissions Measurements
Wireless Data Acquisition
Battery Charging for Various Chemistries
Stress Analysis and Simulation
Digital TV Set Top Box
Portable Voice Transceiver
A couple of engineers completed the
Embedded Systems Certification at CU.
to our community:
Our staff has a wide variety of
activities and interests they pursue after work. The following are just a
few examples of how they have helped our community in the past:
Federation of Families for
Children’s Mental Health – Colorado Chapter
Dan Collins volunteered his time
to help the Denver chapter of FFCMH reconfigure and network their computer
system. This work will help the staff and directly impact children
with mental health needs at the Tennyson Center. Current and future
projects will help children and families by giving them access to computers
to help in scholastic teachings including math and science.
This year our company team “Spider
Riders” joined the multiple sclerosis fight once again by riding
for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society from Broomfield to Fort
Collins and back, in two days, for a total of 150 miles. This marked the
seventh year in a row that our team participated in this event. The
National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from the MS
ride to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to
provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today.
We raised over $4000 in a period
of two months and recruited four new team members. Go Spider Riders!
Promoting Math, Science and Engineering
Ismael Mendoza is very active
promoting science and engineering in our community. He volunteers at the
National Science Bowl, an academic event among teams of high school and
middle school students who compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve
technical problems in all branches of science and math. He also contributes
his time to SHPE, which is a national organization of professional
engineers who serve as role models in the Hispanic community, and in his spare time tutors students in the Denver
Boulder Valley Science Fair
March of this year, CEPD
participated in the Boulder Valley School District Science Fair. The fair
was held at CU where two of our engineers set out to talk to students about
their work and selected two young women who demonstrated creativity and
engineering acumen. The two young women, who received a $200 savings bond,
are Shannon Tsai, whose project was about creating an RC resonant circuit
with DNA and Rachael Pennington for her work on a homemade RFID tag reader.
This marked the second year CEPD participates in the science fair.
One of our engineers is doing more than just helping our local
community. He helps people around the world by supporting and working with
Kiva, a person-to-person micro-lending website that empowers individuals to
lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world. Refer to www.kiva.org
for more information on this great way to help someone achieve his or her
In May of this year we held a
barbeque to celebrate Kirill Belyayev’s graduation from CU with a
B.S in E.E. and we all wore brand new Hawaiian shirts with the company
logo! Congratulations Kirill!!
Our staff has experience in a diverse set of industries and has the
design skills and tools to address most any electronics design challenge.
