Custom Design

Blue Chip excels in custom design – because we retain design and manufacture in house we’re flexible enough to accommodate a small adaptation or bottom up design project.  We have the in-house resource to accommodate any requirements -  this may mean sitting you down with our CAD engineer to bring your solution to life on-screen. It might mean compiling a custom BIOS for your application or reviewing your host board schematics. What it doesn’t necessarily mean is ramping up extra costs – Blue Chip Technology regard many of our customisation services as integral to our product offering and are happy to provide free of charge. 

With a long established track record in this area, we can work efficiently to make a tailored solution an affordable option. We specialise in high mix, high value, low to mid volume manufacture which means we can work with a 100 unit or 10,000 unit project and give it our full care and attention.
