Right Hemisphere Pty Limited

Electronic Design Services

Right Hemisphere is a technical consultancy company specialising in applying electronics and computers to solving our clients' problems. In some cases, our clients are involved in high-tech themselves, and require a specific service such as design of a particular device. In other cases, we are presented with a problem of a general nature and are required to devise and implement the optimum solution.

Our services range from the provision of advice through to the design and implementation of whole systems. This spectrum of activities includes analysis, research, design, specification, prototyping, software writing and documentation. We are happy to provide any combination of services that might be required to complement the client's own skills.

Our ability to provide such a comprehensive service derives from the extensive and diverse experience of our staff, who have been intimately involved with the conceptual design and implementation of real-world products for many years. This experience has earned us both theoretical and practical knowledge in most areas of electronics and computing. For example, fields in which we have had direct, in-depth experience include:

  • Microprocessor-based products (hardware and software)
  • Industrial controllers
  • Specialised interfaces
  • Instrumentation
  • Digital audio storage/reproduction
  • Security systems
  • Microprocessor software/firmware
  • Software development for IBM PCs
  • Data communications equipment
  • Video special effects
  • Telecommunications
  • Digital signal processing


We can specify, design and implement a wide range of electronic products or systems. The starting point for an electronic design may be a detailed specification, or merely a description of what the client wants it to do. In the latter case, we work with the client to develop a specification for approval before commencement of design.

Design projects might involve these steps:

  • Understanding the precise requirements.
  • Studying the market to see what already exists. This is achieved with the help of international on-line data-bases to which we have computer access. Available data-bases include patents, trademarks, technical journals, business journals etc.
  • Producing one or more conceptual designs for discussion.
  • Designing, prototyping and testing the product.
  • Production engineering (if the product is to be mass produced).
  • Documentation (service manual, user manual etc.) We have extensive experience with technical writing and desktop-publishing and can provide attractive, accurate and "user friendly" manuals.

We provide a firm quotation for cost and delivery time and of course we guarantee that the resulting device will perform to specification.

Most stages of the design are carried out in-house, so that close control of the project is maintained. Where specialist services are required from outside, for example circuit board artwork or manufacture, we draw upon a network of tried and trusted contractors to perform the task.

We provide one or more working prototypes, along with artworks and comprehensive documentation such as bill of materials, testing procedures, and operation instructions.

If the project involves a device which is to be manufactured in quantity, we can also provide production engineering services, and if required, we can subcontract and supervise manufacture.

As well as designing new products or systems, we have extensive experience in adapting or modifying other equipment to fulfill special needs. For example, it may be that by enabling two pieces of equipment from different manufacturers to communicate with each other, a production process could be streamlined. In such cases, we can design a custom interface which "speaks" to each machine in its own language.


We have broad experience in microcomputer software of all types. We specialise in real-time and low-level control and interfacing software, including embedded controllers. We have also developed PC software (DOS and Windows).

Friendly user-interface software, usually written in assembler, C or Visual Basic, ensures that the user is isolated from the complexities of the low-level software systems.

Many projects involve elements of both hardware and software (or firmware), and our ability to handle both eliminates the risk of costly misunderstandings which frequently occur when the two tasks are handled by separate organisations.
