Industrial and Rugged Designs

Industrial and rugged designs for consumer, industrial, defense and aerospace applications that meet key product considerations like styling and appearance, ruggedization, environmental and safety standards.


Mistral’s is an embedded product design company offering development of custom industrial and rugged designs and enclosures keeping in mind aesthetics, durability, ruggedization, EMI/EMC protection, safety compliance and product cost. Mistral has the latest, state-of-the-art 3D CAD systems for industrial designs and ruggedization, as well as a variety of equipment and tools for mechanical analysis and testing. Our team of experienced engineers with their knowledge and capability in these design tools ensure delivery of rugged designs optimized for functionality and manufacturability.

For the consumer market, we offer industrial and rugged designs that are FCC/CE compliant and meet key product considerations like styling and appearance, EMI/EMC protection, thermal cooling for internal components, ruggedization for drop shock and environmental stress, safety compliance and ease of assembly.

For aerospace and defense customers, our industrial and rugged designs cater to standard hardware architectures which include VPX, OpenVPX, VXS, VME and other VITA and PICMG standards and custom, non-standard hardware. Thermal management is one of the key requirements for ruggedization, specifically for aerospace and defense applications that require high processing power. Our rugged system design for defense applications incorporate the latest air, conduction and AFT techniques to help optimize performance, conform to ATR standards like ½ ATR, ¾ ATR, 1 ATR and support a variety of thermal management methods.
