Electronics Expert

From Analogue to Digital

Electronics comprises the study of physics, engineering, and technology. It optimizes the emission, flow, and control of electrons to make something happen, such as turning on a light, sending an email, or controlling equipment as critical as a ventilator. These systems are truly multidisciplinary.
Electronics are everywhere: from simple home appliances to complex systems that enable our connected world. Most every aspect of our lives are touched by electronics. When things go wrong, the impact can be enormous.
Retaining an electronics expert with the right education and experience is crucial to your case. Discovery Engineering leads forensic electronics investigations. Competencies include appliances, medical equipment, computer systems, security and alarm systems, automotive electrical systems, lighting controls, and radio communications electronics.
