Technical / Engineering Services & Consulting

With the current economical conditions worldwide, an increasing number of companies are turning to outside help for developing products - hardware, software, electronics, manufacturing, management, and research. There is more independent talent available now as well because a lot of highly skilled people are out of work. The companies on this page and on the pages in the colored links below can do just about anything you might need. Please consider RF Cafe advertisers first.

Due to the very large number of listings in the Technical Services page, they have been broken into the following major categories.

|Circuit & System Design Services | Expert Witness | Forensics | IC Design | Training | Installation, Test & Repair | Product Development | Everything Else |

My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject. Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks due to so many companies asking to be removed because of some issue with Google Statistics. Your best bet is to use a search engine to find company websites directly. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my Advertising information page.
