GB Electronics (UK) Ltd (GBE) is a dedicated electronics design company that provides electronic product and prototype design, firmware development, final product assembly, programming and testing. GBE’s key electronics design competencies are in embedded systems and firmware designs, project management and sub-contracted manufacturing services.
Formed in March 1988, GBE has built extensive industry knowledge, skills and experience from a range of sectors including In-Vehicle Telematics, Healthcare, Medical and Industrial Electronics. Since early 2014 GBE has built on their portfolio to include embedded design of products using Atmel® 32-bit SMART™ ARM® Cortex® microcontrollers; including SAM 4S, SAM L and SAM D devices.
GBE’s cross-industry experience uniquely positions us to design-in compliance, efficiency and functional features that add value, reduce time to market and improve the quality of every project we undertake. GBE work closely with you, the client, to understand your business requirements and your customers’ needs; greatly increasing product acceptance and uptake.
From December 2017 we are excited to welcome Wildtrax Electronics to the GBE group of companies. This strategic acquisition enables GBE to further optimise our whole-product solution: multidisciplinary product design, through to full product manufacturing, programming and testing. We can now include small volume, fast-turnaround surface mount assembly (SMA) prototypes along with full contract electronic manufacturing (CEM) services for through-hole and SMA. Combining our client-focused, product-orientated engineering support business model with the benefits of an efficient and cost-effective SMA line, all managed from one company, is an extremely powerful commercial offering for our existing and potential new customers.
All electronic products have to comply with a myriad of national, international and industry specific regulations. GBE design electronic products for some of the more heavily regulated industries including medical and automotive devices and offer a full design for regulatory compliance service including advice and testing at all stages of the design project. GBE also offer a cost effective pre-compliance advice and testing service which dramatically reduces time to market of any new or re-designed products.
All design and manufacturing projects undertaken are carried out within GBE’s Quality Management System (QMS) which conforms to ISO 9001:2008. GBE provide a full technical file, which includes an essential Declaration of Conformity (DoC) for all of the electronic products we design and manufacture.
