Advancing the art of engineering

Our artistic interpretation of IP product functionality and application surpasses the foundations of engineering to create highly intuitive solutions. For years, we’ve been creating big picture solutions by uniquely Advancing the Art of Engineering™, our proven process that realizes your IP vision with efficient, leading-edge, modern executions.

Boilerplate engineering firms rarely think beyond “how does this work,” which is why our boutique is different. Although advanced engineering concepts are the basis for all that we design and build, we think beyond function and consider useability to create intuitive solutions – which means your product will do more than just work – it will exceed all expectations.

Welcome to the Advanced Art of Engineering that is Summit Scientific. Let’s build something together.

Our Work

Quantum Number Generator

The entropy engine employs quantum mechanics to generate an inexhaustible supply of pure random numbers at high speed. 

Surgical Device

This surgical procedure device uses an autocalibrated A/D converter to monitor thermocouple temperatures asynchronously during the delivery of treatment energy to tissue.

Catheter EvaluationPlatform

The system was used for the development of a precision guided catheter.

Cardiopulmonary Sensor

This sensor was based on Ultra Wideband (UWB) radar and displayed real time cardiopulmonary data.

Li-ion Charge / Debug Fixture

This fixture served as a development/charge docking station for Li-ion based SmartCard.

MIDI Interface

The interface provided a Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) link between an accordion and up to 16 MIDI devices.
