The common denominator of Genovation’s technologies is a modular hardware and software architecture that has been developed by its staff over many years. Our proprietary family of technologies is comprised of microprocessor, computer hardware and software modules, in tandem with communication, man-machine and network interfaces.

This technology “engine” enables Genovation to design and produce products for virtually any application using pre-tested micro controller code and circuit design. Product designs that typically take months of intensive development by other companies can be designed and produced by Genovation in weeks or less. These modules are the fundamental building blocks for all Genovation’s developed products, with new modules and capability being continually developed. We believe that this approach provides great flexibility and seamless integration of technologies and components allowing us to react rapidly and efficiently to your specific needs with field-tested design.

Production &
Quality Assurance

Read More »

Genovation has established a “virtual” manufacturing capability by forming close relationships with several firms that specialize in manufacturing operations. Thus, small orders will be produced in our own facility. Larger production runs may be produced, under our supervision, either locally or in our offshore plants. This arrangement allows us to optimize production, pricing and schedules to our customer’s needs regardless of the size of the production run.

We can also provide agency approvals, including FCC, CSA, TUV, CE and UL.

We also offer very low cost offshore production service to produce customer products using US manufacturing and QC management. Let us quote your product in our ISO 9002 Far East plant for low cost, high quality production of your product.

From Concept to Reality

Genovation can assist in the conversion of concepts and ideas into accurate specifications for purposes of quotation. Then based on the specifications, provide accurate and complete quotations including tooling and production. Genovation can provide production in any quantity at world-class competitive pricing including warranty and extended warranty provisions.
