Syncopated Systems provides deep knowledge of electronic computing device technology through contracted consulting, research, and development services—saving clients considerable time and money.
Online Publishing and Advertising
Syncopated Systems has advertised online since 1985 and today helps individuals, businesses, and other organizations leverage this experience to manage their online presence by:
Web sites should be easy to use and accessible to the widest possible audience.
Unfortunately, many Web pages include markup errors that limit their usability, and some—with too many errors—prevent access completely by crashing browsers.
Too many Web developers appear to be unaware of the industry’s legal requirements (for privacy, reasonable accomodation, intellectual property, etc.), standards, good/best practices, governing body, or free online quality-measurement tools such as the W3C Markup Validation Service and Lighthouse.
For twenty-first century online communication, Syncopated Systems advocates the following:
Whether you want your site to have the flexibility provided by an online content management system such as Wordpress, the high performance of a custom implementation, or a hybrid balancing both, Syncopated Systems provides expert guidance and site development services with better value than those with less experience.

Syncopated Systems can help you get the most value from your office equipment.
The Internet and the World-Wide Web are built on Unix and Linux.
Microsoft Windows is useful for many things, but is inherently less capable and secure, and demonstrably much more expensive to maintain.
A 2016 report from IBM noted that the costs of supporting Windows-based computers were about three times higher than similar Apple computers, which run Unix; IBM again reported in 2019 that costs of supporting computers running Windows may be up to about 22 times higher than Apple’s Unix-based computers. A much earlier study from another source found that Unix-based computers were about 10 times cheaper to maintain than Windows-based computers, which Syncopated Systems confirms through experience.
Apple is not the only source of Unix-based computers, and we can expect similar cost savings with computers running Linux, which is a free software alternative (using open source code) that was created to be “Unix-like”.
In 2019, IBM invested heavily in Linux by acquiring the second-largest (after Intel) contributor to its code base, Red Hat.
Today, free software is easily available to perform most business tasks better than Microsoft products (and now services) while eliminating purchase costs and reducing recurring costs by about 90%.

With cellular telephone service so widely available, it’s now hard to imagine most businesses needing wired telephones.
The emergence of digital audio technologies has allowed telephony networks to maximize profit per line by converting them from parts of switched circuits to carriers of switched data packets.
This technology is essentially the same as (and is in some cases replaced by) voice over internet protocol (VoIP).
Of the many VoIP telephone systems available today, only one appears to be a true private branch exchange (PBX), which keeps local conversations on the local network rather than connecting two local extensions only through an internet data connection, which is sometimes unreliable and always non-private. For small offices, Syncopated Systems proudly recommends the ring-u Hello Hub.
Syncopated Systems can reverse-engineer electronic computing devices as necessary to support product development and intellectual property protection via expert witnesses.
Syncopated Systems can gather requirements and create project and product specifications, product architectural designs, and development plans.
Syncopated Systems excels at developing products with the right level of integration for each client—balancing their unique requirements for reliability, portability, costs, and schedule (time to market or deployment)—with experience at scales including:
Syncopated Systems can provide formal and informal design verification and validation services including plans and reports of test coverage and outcomes.
Syncopated Systems excels at designing for regulatory compliance (RoHS, UL, FCC, etc.) and supervising certification testing such as for 47 CFR Part 15.
User Interface Design
Syncopated Systems can develop effective user interfaces—also called human-computer interaces or human-machine interaces—including design, implementation, testing, and optimization.
Application Software Development
Syncopated Systems can design analog and digital circuits for fixed or mobile applications, including data and signal processing, power supplies and power regulation subsystems (with or without batteries and/or chargers), and digital logic, including discrete and field-programmable logic (PLD, FPGA using Verilog, VHDL).
Printed Circuit Board Design
Syncopated Systems has extensive experience designing printed circuit boards and excels at designing for manufacturability (DFM) and regulatory compliance (RoHS, UL, FCC, etc.).
Syncopated Systems can provide small-scale electronic circuit and cable assembly services in-house, and can evaluate, qualify, and manage outsourced manufacturing through suitable contract manufacturers.
To find out how you can get the most value from your computer technology budget—however small or large—contact Syncopated Systems today for your own free, private, no-obligation consultation.
