  • Steve Sutherland started working in the electronics industry, initially working for Cambridge Instruments on a range of scanning electron microscopes.

  • After several years working for companies & consultancies in the Cambridge area, in 2006 he decided to set up business on his own as a one-man-band, designing electronics and writing software.

  • In 2012, Sutherland Design was formed as a limited company, and has continued since that date to assist companies, from small start-ups to large global organisations, with electronic design and software.

  • We can provide a flexible approach, producing prototype systems and proof-of-concept designs rapidly, working with customers to find the appropriate balance of hardware, firmware & software to address their particular application.

  • Based in the UK, but with experience of working for clients around the world, we can provide a solution tailored to your needs, providing the optimum benefit in terms of total cost and development time.

  • We appreciate that different customers have different requirements and to accommodate this we can work on or off customer sites, depending on location. We can provide either a fixed price quote, or work on an hourly or daily fee rate. Please contact us to discuss how we can best help you
