As of 5/16/13:

--  We, Pocobor (pocobor.com), specialize in embedded systems and can definitely support you and your client in developing a product/platform with bluetooth capabilities. This falls perfectly into the sweet spot of what we do: we build custom electronics and write custom firmware. And we've done a handful of bluetooth projects (both using drop-in modules like the WT32 and down to the bluetooth chipset).

--  (from Elliot Sather) MindTribe in San Francisco has considerable Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE experience. I am not sure if you saw that stylus and ruler Adobe announced recently but they worked on those; I believe they use BLE. Steve Myers would be the one to talk to there.

--They may not be the cheapest option, but Cambridge Consultants in the UK (http://www.cambridgeconsultants.com/core-skills/radio-rf-systems) have a depth of experience in this area, having been involved with BT development for well over a decade.

Notes: Hello,


I received your email regarding EE firms, and I wanted to pass along some information about 219 Design for your list.


219 Design LLC, is a mechatronics design firm started in 2004 by several Stanford MS graduates. At 219 Design we specialize in the interaction between mechanical, electronic, and software systems. We have worked on a variety of projects in areas such as custom circuit design, PCB layout, embedded software development, RF communication, custom communication protocols, solar-powered systems, mechanical design, and GUI development. As graduates of Stanford's ME 218 Smart Product Design sequence, we also have experience with optical encoders and with driving stepper and DC motors.


We've been the principal design team for two generations of the Road Spot Lighting System (http://www.spotdevices.com), which is a solar powered, radio-frequency activated crosswalk lighting system. We performed the entire circuit design, including component selection, PCB layout, BOM development, and ordering and testing prototype runs. We also developed the microcontroller firmware and a GUI for system configuration and data collection. We helped lead the products into production, and there are now dozens of systems installed throughout the country.


Our clients include companies such as Synaptics Inc, Volkswagen Electronics Research Laboratory, BMW Technology Office, Los Gatos Research Inc, Spot Devices Inc, Validity Sensors Inc, and Water Security Corporation Inc. We'd be happy to provide references from some of our satisfied clients upon request.



Some of our specific capabilities include:


Microcontroller-based system development with both the Microchip PIC and the Atmel AVR families. We have streamlined development systems in place for both architectures, including C compilers and in-circuit debugging capabilities.

Custom circuit design.


1 to 4-layer PCB layout. We use Altium Designer for schematic capture and PCB layout.

GUI development in both Visual C++ and Java.

On-site electronic and mechanical prototyping abilities (milling machine, lathe, surface-mount capabilities, etc.)

Company-wide documentation and version control systems.

3D CAD models and dimensioned drawings with SolidWorks.
