The Need

Ferguson Beauregard excels in the system design, software development and deployment of plunger lift technology.  With minimal hardware staff, Ferguson Beauregard needs a quality engineering design partner to round out its product development team.

Our Role

Neoventus supported Ferguson Beauregard in several efforts, most recently with the design of a configurable USB IO module for use in their iSyte system. This module, based on  STMicroelectronics latest family of 32-bit ARM  microcontrollers, implements a wide variety of IO types and interfaces to the iSyte controller over USB.  In addition, each input point is reconfigurable via software allowing for easy module reuse as new applications or sensor / actuator types are required.  Neoventus provided all hardware and firmware design, followed by testing with Microsoft Windows® USB (HID) driver to assure the expected functionality.  Neoventus structures contracts to the needs of each client – in this case we worked to transition the design to Ferguson Beauregard’s contract manufacturer for prototyping and production following design.  As in nearly every case, full functionality was achieved on the first pass hardware.
