About Us

What do we do?

We provide Expert Witness and Forensics Services to investigate equipment failures. We determine root causes, prepare reports and if needed testify. We have worked to provide insights into lightning damage, equipment fires, electrical equipment failures, reliability issues and feasibility of repair.

We can help you source hard to find substitute parts and in some cases redesign your PCBs to change to more available components. Let us know what components you are having trouble with and we will propose how to address the problems.

The products we have developed range from the firmware in a PIC16C54 processor used to run a microstrobe product used in building alarm systems to the development of a multi processor Sign Controller for use in outdoor auto racing. We are comfortable with prototype development and setting up full production of your new products. We have done projects for medical equipment, industrial equipment, motorcycle aftermarket equipment, automotive aftermarket equipment, and snowmobile aftermarket equipment.

We develop and deliver custom and packaged training programs in a wide variety of fields. We have experience in industrial, consumer, and medical equipment and bring a broad field of expertise to bear on our clients needs.


Nelson Research has full lab facilities allowing for the development and debug of electronic products. The lab is equipped with oscilloscopes, meters, soldering stations, emulators, device programmers, a 3D Printer and computer systems. We now use KiCad for most schematics and PCB layout. This free open source package is available under Windows and Linux and gives our clients a free way to work with schematics and PCB designs. We also provide schematic capture with DX Designer and PCB layout with PADS and other systems on request. We provide Spice simulation using LTSpice. We now provide mechanical design and fabrication work to allow us to provide any part of your project from concept, to prototypes, through initial shipment of finished products. We can provide mechanical drafting services as well as analysis. Contact us for your specific needs.
