About Us

Incorporated in 1993, Noetic Design, Inc., located in Portland Oregon, provides product development and contract engineering services.

Contract Engineering

We specialize in developing software, firmware, and hardware solutions for the consumer and hobby electronics, robotics, and data storage industries.  We have done both small prototyping jobs as well as multi-year full life-cycle engineering.

Product Development

We shipped our first products for the education, research, and hobbyist robotics industries in 2004. ¬†These products — the WheelWatcher optical encoders, Unicoder magnetic encoders, and WheelCommander motion controller — were sold under the Nubotics brand name from 2004 to 2016; see nubotics.com for historic details.
