BVM Design and Manufacturing Services

When a standard embedded design won’t suffice for what you need, you can always turn to BVM for help and use our custom design and manufacturing services.

All our custom designs are implemented against an ISO 9001-2015 quality management system. Important aspects to the design potential – such as power delivery, thermal management, vibration & shock and EMC (for the application of any necessary certifications) are all accounted for at the early stages of a products design.

Embedded Product Design Service for the OEM:
Concept, Design and Manufacture

Our embedded ‘Design to Order’ services are there to take your ideas from concept to initial designs and prototyping – culminating in manufacturable products.

Custom PCB Design
Custom PCB Design

At BVM we have an established history of design and manufacture of embedded computer boards. From the early days of VMEbus board design through to Compact PCI and PMC Module design. In today’s world, BVM frequently custom carrier designs for bespoke solutions – also including System On Module (SOM) applications using Computer on Modules (COM) such as COM Express (Type 6, 7 and 10) and Qseven.


We also produce custom power supply units, too – where & when the situation requires it.

Custom Chassis Design
Custom Chassis and Cooling Design

Not everything ‘off the shelf’ will be a fit for your specific application – which is fine, quite often one size doesn’t fit all. With our CAD design team using the very latest in 3D modelling software, BVM engineering will custom design solutions to provide for the exact heat dissipation needed – whilst also ensuring any ingress protection needs are looked after.


Typically, this takes the consideration of the housing & accommodation of the motherboard, TFT displays with integrated touch, peripheral cabling for data communication – and any other embedded supporting devices where needed to aid your application.

Custom Screen
Touch Screen Integration

More and more of the products we use in our everyday lives require a means of interaction via their display output. At BVM we have the ability to integrate the touch screen solution that’s befitting your application, so whether you need single point of touch or full ’10 point’ interactivity with on screen gesturing (‘flick, zoom, pinch’) – we’ll integrate the touch solution that provides functionality you need.


In addition, we also provide other display enhancement services, ensuring your product can always be seen and read within their surrounding environment lighting conditions.

“A successful product not only requires a competent functional design……
….it also needs to be designed for manufacture.”
Custom PC Design
These are just some of the areas where we apply our skills:

• Considerations needed for power requirements of a system
• Thermal management of systems
• Design for Manufacturability and Test
• Component selection for lifetime availability
• Obsolescence Planning


Not until your sign off of the Requirement Specification does the detailed design work begin – resulting in concepts, the follow on of initial designs – all resulting in the production of a “proof of concept” (PoC) – a working unit to verify your application software’s functionality, aesthetics (the all-round look & feel of your product) and, of course, budget.


We can follow the proof of concept by further producing pre-production/field trial prototypes to further verify the design for manufacturability and testability.

Our projects have included:-
• Advanced PCI Express peripherals and expansion bridges.
• High specification PCI Express splitter devices to allow multiple devices to be driven from standard embedded motherboards
• Baseboards for Computer-on-Module processor boards, such as COM Express and Qseven implementing customers I/O & display requirements onto the baseboard and allowing processing to be handled by a standard module.


Embedded Computer Design, System Integration
and Customisation Services For the OEM

Our Build to Order PC service is intended to allow our customers to concentrate on their own immediate business needs. We only select components from reliable sources with long life time availability to ensure your product stays in production for its required life cycle – and remains on budget. Our procurement and stock management team provide the advice and experience that you’ll need.

Pelicase PC
Custom Portable Peli Case PCs

Where expertise is needed in providing ‘system in a case’ PC solutions, look no further than BVM’s range of Pelicase PC systems. Where a demanding, tough environment calls for a system that’s highly ruggedised in its design whilst remaining light & portable, we’re sure we’ll have a solution that’s befitting your application.

Custom Mini-ITX Industrial PCs

BVM’s broad experience in producing customised Embedded PC Systems has been transferred to producing a new & diverse range of “Build to Order” Mini-ITX system PC’s. Solutions are available with a wide variety of options for required i/o and processors.

Custom Rack
CUSTOM Racks and Towers

BVM provide a suite of Rack Mount PC solutions, our systems are highly configurable around a wide & varied cross section of parameters so we can deliver the solution that’s right for your application, inclusive of performance level, product reliability and lifetime availability.

It’s Easy to Get Started.
At BVM, we pride ourselves in our ability to gather a clear understanding of our clients products needs, right from the start. We always begin by deriving a ‘requirement specification’ – which can be a written specification, a working prototype or ‘mock up’ provided by you – or even a just a ‘wish list’ around how you want your product to function in the environment it’s destined for.
Whatever the format, our engineering & commercial team will create a design specification agreed with & signed off by you. Because we’ve honed our skills over the years that BVM have existed, our manufacturing & technical support team know what makes a successful design (and just as importantly, what doesn’t) around the requirements of an embedded system.

Panel PC
If you cant find an off the shelf product that meets your specific requirements speak with our in house design team who can design a new product from start to finish.


Industrial Computers, Box PCs and Embedded Systems available with Intel i3 / i5 / i7 / Celeron and AMD Ryzen Embedded CPU’s, We have wide range of embedded PC systems suited to different environments.

These range from off the shelf systems available as fully configured systems with memory, storage and optimised embedded operating system or as a ‘bare bones’ system for user completion to bespoke custom designed systems. Here we are showing a range of off the shelf systems for use in different areas of industry.

Embedded Systems

Small Form Factor Industrial and Embedded Motherboards, Mini-ITX Motherboards, 3.5″ SBCs, NUC and Pico-ITX modules and more.

Industrial Grade Motherboards provide the backbone for Industrial PC Systems, they are revision controlled and are available for a longer time scale compared to commercial motherboard’s and typically operate over a wider temperature range than their commercial equivalents.

And Display Enhancement Services

Display Enhancement

As a leading UK systems integrator for embedded technologies, BVM provide a wide variety of TFT displays solutions.  Unlike other integrators, BVM are agnostic where specific display manufacturers are concerned – making use of direct and indirect relationships with an established supply chain built up over our 30 years + of existence that serves every need of our display design in processes.  Without bias, we only select and use TFT’s & peripherals befitting to the application - which means we can meet the demands of the most challenging of applications where the deployment of displays & associated technologies is concerned.

Factors such as physical profile, viewing angles, contrast and brightness constitute our considerations towards selecting the right choice of display for an industrial application. Viewing enhancement technologies such as TN, MVA or IPS also play their part in the narrowing down of our choice of solution.

We like to make life easier ….

Our Embedded Manufacturing services are intended to allow our customers to concentrate on their own immediate business needs, knowing that the design and configuration is taken care of by BVM.
