Timestar Developments is a UK-based company specialising in the rapid design and development of customer-specific, bespoke hardware and software solutions.

The company has a track record of over 30 years and an impressive customer list including major UK and multinational organisations.  Nevertheless, we frequently undertake small design and development contracts.

We will work from a wide range of levels of specification, including very loosely defined requirements, where a pre-design input can be provided, assisting in the requirements definition process.

Contractual arrangements are usually fixed price but can also be arranged on a daily or hourly rate basis.

Current and past clients include well known national and multinational companies, such as TRW, Advantica, BAE SYSTEMS, Kidde and Alcatel, Universities and research organisations such as the former DERA (now Qinetiq)  and many very much smaller organisations.

Much of our work has been, and continues to be, repeat business from satisfied customers.

Current and past projects include, under software and firmware development, both the creation of bespoke applications and the enhancement and modification of existing software, in application areas as diverse as communications, industrial monitoring and control, marine surveying, life sciences, and fire protection system operation and supervision.


Under hardware development, they include the design and development of custom hardware (standalone desktop units for research and demonstration purposes), special purpose PCI cards, and specialised communications systems and industrial monitoring and control systems.


Several projects are turnkey solutions embracing both hardware and software developments, together with the associated project management activity.


Details are available on specific examples of projects, with durations ranging from days to years, classified into four sections,


  ·  hardware and embedded system projects

  ·  firmware development projects

  ·  software development projects

  ·  combined projects involving both hardware and software

The company is now in its 33rd year of business over which time it has continued to develop. The business was originally founded as a one man consultancy in April 1986 by its now Managing Director, under the name Ken Wood Consultancy. Success led to expansion, and as a result, in November 1990, having moved premises, the business became a limited company, Timestar Developments Limited. Over the last 32 years we have built up an impressive track record of successful projects, and continue to build on an extensive list of satisfied customers.
