Design embedded systems for the next generation

D3 Engineering develops embedded systems for cutting-edge, performance-critical products. We help the industry’s most innovative manufacturers incorporate our advanced vision, sensor and control technologies into their next-generation designs.

Typically, we are integrated with our customers’ product development teams. We define and design embedded systems, and produce real-time prototypes that migrate to pilot production and ultimately reach full-scale production. Our engineers get the best of two worlds—the opportunity to engage in state-of-the-art, large-company projects, while working in a small-company atmosphere. You can expect hands-on design experience, a high level of responsibility, and routine exposure to leading-edge technology.

A privately funded engineering firm in Rochester, NY, we are growing rapidly and are always on the lookout for talented, energetic people in electronic product development, hardware design, and software design. We specialize in embedded product development with DSP, ARM, and FPGA processors. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience using DSP and FPGA architectures to develop digital systems for video processing, power, and motion control. Expertise with real time Linux is a plus.
