A few "in generals"

  • If you envision your board, what does it look like? A handheld device? Network appliance? Industrial control board? Geppetto excels at these kinds of things.
  • Please know Geppetto does wearable systems -- and, in fact, is helping pioneer these. But ingestible systems? We’re not there yet.
  • Satellites and drone controllers? Yes. Rocket controls? No.
  • Medical systems? Of course. Implantables? Not at this time.
  • In general, though, please know we are constantly pushing the boundaries... after all, Geppetto’s motto is: Dream... Design... Deliver...!
