Biological and Environmental Sciences Directorate

Electronic and Embedded Systems

Analog and Digital Systems Group

The mission of the Electronic and Embedded Systems (EESG) group is to apply modern electronic methods to provide solutions to challenges that are important to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Department of Energy, other federal agencies, and private industry. Our mission is also to deliver quality products on time and within budget with a commitment to professionalism, fiscal responsibility, and customer satisfaction.

The EES Group engineering and technical support staff has an effective balance of hardware development, software development, system integration, and user interface skills. Our signal conditioning, data acquisition, embedded controller, and interface designs employ the most appropriate blend of custom-developed and commercial off-the-shelf technologies. In addition to providing electronic interfaces to equipment, we are skilled in providing user interfaces. We deliver systems that are based on a thorough understanding of the customer's requirements, and we provide the design, development, testing, and post-installation support necessary to ensure that our products fulfill those needs. Due to the results oriented nature of the EESG staff, our engineers and technologists are well integrated with external and internal fabrication shops. We accelerate science through excellence in engineering.
