The APC Engineering Department is a fully capable outfit that can handle all aspects of your display program’s needs. Though mainly comprised of Optical, Mechanical, Electrical, and System Engineering functions, APC also performs in-house software/firmware development, DO-254 documentation and reliability analyses, PCB layout, configuration management, and Test Engineering. No matter what your display design requirements might be, APC has the ability to provide a turn-key solution.
Throughout the development cycle, APC engineers will remain in close contact with our customer’s counterparts to ensure that the product designed meets the end user’s requirements and is delivered on time. Whether APC mechanical engineers supply partner engineers with CAD models to mitigate any integration issues early in the design or APC optical engineers provide customers design alternatives for a desired white point, our goal is to mitigate project risk and to deliver a product to the customer with no surprises. Program Managers at APC are always available as our customer’s primary point of contact. They track project and material status and interface directly with customers and APC engineers to track any necessary changes. At APC, our experience has demonstrated that good communication with the customer is paramount to project success and APC strives to stay focused to that goal.tracked to assure that components operate as intended the first time delivered.

Optical engineers evaluate and ensure adherence to customer requirements for viewing angles, contrast ratios, reflectance, chromaticity, luminance and light mitigation. Optical Engineers have the tools to take the guess work out of the design and can work with customers to tailor the optical performance.
Mechanical Engineers are responsible for creating electronic packages that are compliant to the customer design specification, easy to build and test, and to be as low cost as possible. A completed design requires the evaluation of many factors during the design process including MIL-STD 810 / DO-160 environmental requirements, internal assembly process and tooling considerations, and customer integration factors in the next higher order assembly. Mechanical Engineers are accustomed to sharing CAD files with customers to work out mutually beneficial designs.
Systems Engineering activities focus on the definition, management, and verification of the Customer’s requirements throughout all phases of the development life cycle. During this process, the Systems Engineer will ensure the product development is on track to meet these requirements, requirements are formally verified, and any compliance criteria has been satisfied.
By following a structured development process, Electrical Engineering transforms performance requirements into a robust design solution using proven design practices. Electrical Engineers create circuitry and firmware that drives the LCD from customer video inputs, provides backlighting for the LCD, provides control and detailed status of the display and, if required, provides LCD heating, touch-screen
