Let us develop your:

Embedded systems; Real-time control; DSP; Sensors;

Algorithms; Image Processing; Calibration and Applications of Inverse Theory.

Parallel Rules Inc. works with you to develop your next generation of products.

Most of the products available today were not available 5 years ago. In this rapidly changing marketplace companies must innovate to survive. Parallel Rules increases the depth and breadth of skills you can call upon to develop your next generation of products.

We apply our cross disciplinary skills of management, engineering, computing, physics, mathematics and design to develop your next generation product.

After analysis of your requirements, we assemble a team involving your company and our consultants to work in parallel to rapidly bring your product from concept, through R&D to market.

Our goal is to use our skills and knowledge to develop the best products for you and your customers.

Parallel Rules Inc. will expand your development capabilities.

In this age of down-sized, re-engineered, virtual companies, Parallel Rules is the partner in success that you need.

Parallel Rules Inc. calls upon a variety of skills, but specializes in projects that require a mix of hardware and software, sensors and algorithms, embedded systems and real-time control, calibration and test, taking ideas from concept to reality.


Our clients have ranged from individual inventors and small companies to large organizations.
