Welcome to Allen Design
Digital Design from Conception to Production

I am an engineering consultant specializing in the design of embedded hardware and embedded software. Developing successful products for the arcade, toy, and consumer industries has given me the skills to minimize manufacturing costs, power consumption, and physical size, while maximizing performance and reliability.

Hardware And Software Together

As both a hardware engineer and a software engineer, I bring extraordinary skills and efficiency to your project. I can provide unbiased advice on tradeoffs between hardware and software. My ability to write test routines, and then monitor behavior using an oscilloscope or other equipment is invaluable when troubleshooting communication problems, system hangups, or other issues which normally require two individuals with complimentary skills.

Better - Cheaper - Faster!

Whether you intend to sell millions of units of your product, or build only a few for your own internal use, I can make the tradeoffs necessary to minimize your development costs and maximize your profits. My experience with all phases of product development, including initial conception, prototype construction, debug, and support of manufacturing, ensures that I can do it better, cheaper, and faster!

Why Use A Consultant?

By using a consultant to meet your engineering needs, you maximize flexibility while you minimize overhead, capital expenditures, and long-term commitments. I bring the specific skills and tools needed to complete your task quickly, competently, and professionally. My modern lab is immediately available for your project. Should your needs or plans change, our relationship can easily change too. When the design is completed, and successfully released to manufacturing, we can call the job "Done!" You are not burdened with continuing commitments to an employee, an office, or a piece of equipment.

Over 20 years of experience in the development and design of video games, consumer electronics, and computers & peripherals.
