Micro Designs last major consulting job was early 2008 when I finished:
DLA2/4/6 based on Hacs' ESS line.
Goals of Micro Designs:
Developing and promoting simple & inexpensive distributive processing for:
Wireless Decora lcd touchscreen
Wireless energy monitoring and control outlets/power strips
Link modules from/to:IR/X10/RS232/Zigbee/IP/switches/relays/etc.
LED strip/flood/spot lighting
Motorized window covering controls
Remote controls for security
My hope for Hacs, over the years, is that I could find investors and/or partners to fully fund Hacs to be self-sufficient.
So many ideas/products in the pipeline. But that has not happened yet.
Just since March 2010 Micro Designs has started to get request for bids.
First since January 2007. So the economy seems to be getting better.
So Hacs is not dead.
Micro Designs is still seeking design, development or manufacturing opportunities.
Hacs is still looking for investors and/or partners.
