Our thanks go to Pablo Varjabedian of Borgtech Pty Ltd for his support and encouragement and for having the vision, as we do, that niche electronics and embedded software products like the Borgtech CPL2 Data Logger can, and should be, manufactured in Australia.

"We have been very fortunate to have Successful Endeavours design our latest Corrosion Protection Data Logger, the Borgtech CPL2. Their expertise in analog electronics design has delivered an amazing product that goes beyond our original expectation and was so good it won 2 National Innovation Awards in 2009. Coupled with their general electronics design ability including PCB design and layout, embedded software development skills and Windows based data visualisation software they were able to provide us with the whole package of development services we needed and we have an outstanding product that will ensure our success in the market.

We can’t recommend them highly enough and look forward to working with them again on our next development project."

Other Electronics and Embedded Software Product Awards

Here are some other award winning electronics and embedded software products that Successful Endeavours is proud to have been involved in the development of:

Safe Turning Indicator - The People's Choice and Winner of its heat in ABC's The New Inventors program in 2008. It was also a finalist in the 2008 Innovic Next Big Thing Awards.

The Safe Turn product is an excellent example of smart electronics design creating a low power consumption device that has enhanced ergonomic and visual performance at a reduced price point. This is a classic low cost electronics manufacture example.

"We would like to thank the team at Successful Endeavours for the professionalism they demonstrated in designing and prototyping an Integrated Circuit for our product.

From the initial consultation right through to the delivery of the final product, Ray Keefe of Successful Endeavours delivered on time, and was always responsive to our needs and requests for updates. We worked closely with Ray to perfect the circuit, which we at Safe Turn are extremely happy with.

We use the Integrated Circuit in our flagship product - the portable automatic bicycle turn signal.

We personally recommend Successful Endeavours. Job well done team, we look forward to using your services again for our next project."

Michael Orlowski
Safe Turn Pty Ltd


Mediseus - This device was a winner in the 2006 Innovic Next Big Thing Awards.

This is a low volume, high value add, locally Australian manufactured medical teaching device that accurately simulates the epidural insertion process so that interns and doctors can become skilled at the procedure before having to perform it on a real person. The haptics device is a standard product but the rest of the onboard electronics and embedded software are specifically designed to reduce manufacturing cost in low volumes while providing enhanced performance compared to the use of off the shelf modules. This is custom electronics design at its best.
