Distant Focus Corporation specializes in designing and fabricating prototype systems. We typically supply prototype devices in quantities of 1000 or less but can help you connect with the appropriate contract manufacturer for the transition to larger production quantities. Our staff offers decades of combined experience in optical, mechanical, electronic, and imaging system design.
Our team is able to design complex, custom optical systems for your scientific or industrial needs.
Distant Focus has mechanical engineering expertise in opto-mechanics, ultra-precise positioning systems, and electronic enclosures.
Our team can design custom electronics for your project, from simple USB interfaces to complex multiple FPGA systems and everything in between.
Distant Focus has experience in both hardware level software development as well as application and GUI development.
As a general rule we engineer projects from a systems-level point of view allowing us to "close the loop" on the design process much faster with fewer problems. Please contact us if you have a specific project in mind.
For general prototyping and first-time custom work we'll provide a rough order-of-magnitude estimate of our time and the material cost. The job is then billed strictly for time worked and materials purchased. We only supply fixed quotes after making the first prototype. Our rates are competitive and we offer government rates that have been audited by the DCAA. In addition to the fabricated device, we provide you with a complete parts list, CAD drawings of all of the mechanical parts, computer-generated schematics and net-lists for the electronics as well as the computer-generated PCB layout files. As a general rule, any design that we do based on your proprietary information is owned by you and any design element that we use or modify from our "toolbox" remains the property of Distant Focus.
