Advanced Electronic Designs is an electronics engineering product design and development firm located in Bozeman, Montana. AED thrives on solving intricate design challenges and developing innovative solutions for a diverse clientele.


With a focus on efficiency and effectiveness, AED leverages past designs to accelerate the development process and reduce risk. Our nimble and responsive engineering team coupled with in-house prototype manufacturing and project management capabilities significantly shortens development timelines. Our product portfolio ranges from low-cost, high-volume applications to designs that push the limits of technology using the largest Virtex Ultrascale+ FPGAs.


AED’s approach to engineering can lead to new products and features not initially imagined, turning single products into multi-market opportunities. Client engagements range from small technical assistance to full turn-key product development. We have supported customers in a wide range of industries, including audio, video and broadcast, automotive, defense, aerospace, scientific, medical, communications, test and measurement, mechatronics, and robotics.


Project Definition & Scope

Whether you want a new product developed or you have an existing engineering design challenge, tell us your goals and we’ll help you reach them.


AED thrives on taking concepts through market product design and development, beginning with building a transparent communication practice with our clients. We ask the right questions, listen intently, and pool our combined team experience to define your project and provide innovative solutions.


Over the last 29 years, our team has honed their ability to streamline product development through a research and cost analysis approach that leads to the most successful and cost-effective path possible.


As we discover new potential product features along the way, we quickly determine if their value toward reaching your business goals is worth the cost of their development. All of our recommendations come backed with data, experience, and a consistent, transparent dialogue with our clients.

Electronics Hardware Development

With over 300 hardware design projects in our portfolio, our expertise in requirements capture, system architecture, circuitry design, CAD design services, coding, PCB testing, electronic design, mechanical design and prototype manufacturing, ensures that we have the experience and wherewithal to develop the hardware your project needs to succeed. We focus on ensuring your project requirements line up with the budget, while creating innovative hardware designed for optimal performance and durability.


Our engineering team expertise spans numerous industries such as audio, video, and broadcast, automotive and transport, defense and aerospace, scientific and medical, communications and network, test and measurement, mechatronics and robotics, and IoT.


When it comes to designing circuitry, AED is fluent in numerous types of sensor and hardware technologies, including high bandwidth interfaces, high speed serial digital, memory interfaces, advanced bus interfaces, and high speed and low noise analog.  With a focus on efficiency and effectiveness, AED leverages past designs to accelerate the development process while reducing risk.

Firmware/FPGA Design

AED’s in-house firmware experts have a combined 167 years of experience developing firmware that supports our hardware designs. All of our embedded programmers are electrical/computer engineers, and their intimate understanding of the hardware results in more efficient and functional code. We are a Xilinx Certified Alliance Partner and have experience with designs that push the limits of technology using the largest Virtex Ultrascale+ FPGAs.


AED specializes in performance optimization – identifying strategic paths, reducing bugs, and improving existing designs. Whether we are building a custom FPGA design from the board up, or deconstructing existing schematics to offer recommendations for improvement, AED has the knowledge to complete your project quickly and accurately.


We perform rigorous testing and verification of our embedded system designs. Issues are identified early and resolved before the product goes to market. Oftentimes we will improve the design, mapping more effectual paths or finding innovative ways to reduce power or memory consumption.

Rapid Prototyping & Small-Volume Manufacturing

On a low-volume basis, AED will happily manufacture your product. If you contract the work elsewhere, we will work with the manufacturer to help reduce costs and streamline production. We design, therefore we know your product inside out and will help you reach your goals in the most efficient manner.


AED also offers rapid prototyping services.. Our onsite manufacturing facility allows us to have your product built, tested, and in-hand quickly.

Custom Software Development

Whether you require full-cycle development or recovery of a project, AED has the experience and resources to see your project through to completion, regardless of complexity…and we build software that looks as good as it functions. Our expertise includes custom web, desktop, server, and mobile apps, enterprise cloud software design, database design and development, and API development.


Our seamless team of software developers, graphic designers, engineers, project managers, and requirement analysts all work as one to ensure we adhere to your timeline and budget. And you’ll never have to guess about project status. Our unique documentation process gives you access to real time project progress and changes. By projects end, you’ll have a complete guide to your new software and ongoing system support, should your requirements change.

Testing & Support

To ensure your product performs reliably and manufacturing defects are kept to a minimum, we design with quality and testability top of mind. Our testers focus on attention to detail and quality assurance.


When it comes to test planning and execution, we know how pivotal the testing phase affects the final success of a product. Nothing leaves our facility without being thoroughly inspected and vetted.


As our team develops test plans and documentation, you’re kept in the loop throughout the entire process. We will even build custom test fixtures to verify the manufacturing process.


Our work doesn’t end when we deliver your product. Whether you need help transitioning staff to new technology or require post-implementation support, AED is always just a call away.
