Electronic Design Engineering & Production

About Us

Integrated Controls, Inc. has been designing, developing and manufacturing a diverse range of electronic products for over 30 years at the same location in the heart of San Francisco's media gulch.

We have a great deal of practical experience and a network of resources to bring to your project. Complete documentation is provided and your proprietary intellectual property is respected.

Founded by Dennis Saputelli and incorporated in 1985, we offer extensive expertise and practical experience in bringing our customers ideas into reality.

We can help manage your project from the initial design phases, through prototyping and up to full production runs, utilizing a broad base of suppliers and fabricators, both on-shore and off-shore.

Quick turn-arounds and impossible schedules are a pretty much normal around here.

We have experience in many areas including product designs meeting regulatory agency compliance standards. We have completed many projects with approvals from: FAA, FDA, UL, CE and FCC.

We have been designing and building products since the beginnings of Silicon Valley, both for our own brands and as contractors for many others in the entertainment and visual arts fields.

Typical workflow scenario:

Customer delivers either a raw idea or rough circuits and sketches, we take it from there, design the board and hand back finished prototypes. Often the customer does the firmware (if any) or we can help with that too.

We take pride in having a track record with a very high rate of first-time success – a working Rev A is the goal!
