PCB Design | Electrical Engineering

Our business was built around design and implementation of high speed digital interfaces, and has since evolved into a full spectrum design firm.


Arira’s Hybrid Memory Cube Controller

Our core strength is electrical engineering centered around hardware design and development.  We provide schematic design, management and review of PCB Layout, as well as final lab verification of hardware.  We have developed an infrastructure which enables team members to design and develop hardware efficiently (minimal schedule), acceptably (it can be built), and effectively (it works).

Arira is called on to work around a wide range of processors and electronic interfaces.  We work closely with our partners and stay in tune with the most current technology, allowing us to apply state of the art solutions for our clients, often under extremely compressed time frames.

We maintain an onsite lab here in San Jose where we often work side by side with our clients bringing up their products.

We understand our business is to serve clients.  We are experienced enough to know how to set realistic expectations and to find ways to deliver on our commitments. Our experience in delivering on our promises is what sets us apart from our competitors.

  • About Us

    Arira was founded in 2003 by three experienced design engineers who wanted to build a company focused on designing and building electronic systems within extremely tight schedules, giving clients access to both knowledge of design as well as connecting them to a first rate project management team. Drawing on skill sets from the Networking, Telecom, Storage Networks and Handheld Devices markets, Arira has grown into a highly regarded electronic design services firm. Our focus continues to be on system design services, prototyping, and project management.
