FPGA Design and Programming
An FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) consists of a silicon chip that integrates memory, logic gates, and other processing elements. They are extremely popular for their speed, flexibility, and space savings in applications such as video processing, network interfaces, and digital communications.
FPGAs process data in parallel at hardware speeds, compared to a microprocessor that processes data serially using software. This gives FPGAs the ability to do things that a microprocessor cannot do, such as Software Defined Radio and other very high-speed operations.
FPGAs have revolutionized digital circuit design and embedded systems circuit design with programmable architecture, high density, and high speed. What used to take an entire circuit board can be put on a single chip, even in low volume production.
IP (Intellectual Property) is available for a wide variety of functions that can be put on the FPGAs, including microprocessors, filters, phase-locked loops, and hundreds of other functions, saving a lot of time in development. Voler Systems has the knowledge and experience to use these capabilities to their fullest.
FPGAs are used in a wide range of applications and industries, including:
- Video imaging
- Military technologies, including missile guidance systems
- Automotive computing
- Aerospace applications
- Search engine algorithms
- Networking and datacenter management
- Signal processing
- Medical devices
- High-speed memory interfaces
- Digital communications systems

Accelerated our product development
By choosing Voler for our FPGA design needs we were able to accelerate our product development significantly.
Not only was the board layout perfect, but the FPGA code has not needed a single revision. I highly recommend
Voler to anyone needing quality electronics design.

Medical Rehabilitation Device product design, software
I was very pleased with the fixture your group developed for the VPULSE System. your quote was accurate, and you delivered it to the schedule. The tester performs well at our off-shore factory. I was particularly pleased with the additional efforts of Stuart on a Saturday in which he complicated work in time for me to catch a plane to our factory that evening. the work he did at the last minute worked was the sort of effort I look for in our partners. I plan to use your design services on an on-going basis.
Howard Edelman, General Manager
Non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system
"We used Voler to help us design and develop a next generation non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system. They had all of the expertise and resources to deliver everything we needed. They even spend countless hours working with us in the design FMEA."
Medical Device Product Design
Voler is "well suited for medical device design and development. Very detail oriented and efficient. Very collaborative staff."
Software Programming – Great Engineering Team
"They helped us with product design and specs. Their team was extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. They answered our questions thoroughly and in a timely manner."
Review for Medical Device Design Engineering
"We used Voler for their full service R&D consulting services. Their consulting services ranges from initial concept and design all the way to the production end. We also use them for test systems including sensors and measurement electronics. Their team knows the regulatory process and procedures and delivers high quality products in a timely manner and on budget. We have been very pleased with their consulting services and have even recommended them to a neighboring company."
Strengths: Customer Service, Identifying Risk, Best Design Approach
"Voler is really good at identifying risks and finding the best way to do a project."
A great way to start the day
No better way to start the day than by receiving a thank you from a client! "I want to thank you for your work on this project. Voler’s approach from quoting the project to completing the work was a rewarding experience, particularly the way risk is built into the proposed budget. I have let others within the company know that I was extremely satisfied with my interaction with Voler in case they have similar projects in the future."
Key Engineering Resources for Instrument Development
"Voler Systems were able to provide key engineering resources that we needed quickly for our instrument development. They are easy to work with and are genuinely concerned with our success. They have positively contributed to our engineering efforts and have been a valuable partner in helping me achieve my goals as an engineering professional."
Scott Helgesen, Director of Engineering, Roche Sequencing Solutions
Happy with their effectiveness and professionalism
"I appreciate the great work that Voler has been performing. Voler’s team has assisted us with many problems, fixed code from an outside consultant, added features that were required by the company and aided in the training of company employees on the current code. We have been very happy with their effectiveness and professionalism."
Great custom solutions!
We reached out to Voler as a design partner to customize a client prototype. Extremely professional and thorough in his schematic design with great programming knowledge. Customer service was great as he kept us informed throughout and updated at each stage of the development. Great product quality, accurate quotes, within the budget that yielded a high-end prototype. Will continue to use going forward.
