Bold Circuits LLC was founded in 2015 to provide full service electronic design to the commercial, military, and research markets. Bold Circuits is happy to provide a complete end to end solution or fill in the gaps on your design team. Whether you need a full design from concept through production or simply a design review or quick turn board layout, we can provide that support.
One way that Bold Circuits is different from other design companies is our focus on hardware design for proof of concept and quick turn demos with follow on work to form, fit, function as needed. By quickly demonstrating a solution in real, physical hardware, our customers are able to provide early feedback and drive the design towards their desired solution.
