About Kilhamaig Design

Kilhamaig Design is just me.  I have been designing electronics professionally since I was 17, that's a long time ago.  I have worked in Medical, Automotive and general product design.  I will design almost anything that is not intended to kill or maim!  From analogue, RF, digital, software to PCB layout I can start with a blank piece of paper, write a specification and create the product.  I have close contacts with local contract manufacturing and industrial design.
