About Haddington Dynamics

Haddington Dynamics is an advanced research and development company applying the most advanced reconfigurable supercomputing technology to focus on low-cost, ultra precision motion control for robotics, 3D printing and automation. To cut costs while increasing functionality, modern manufacturing is becoming increasingly automated. This presents problems of keeping the cost of the automated equipment down while improving on its precision and flexibility. Making accurate, fast hardware is only half of the story. To get really precise, rapid feedback between vision and touch sensors is necessary. Furthermore, this feedback must be instantly applied to recomputing real-time motion control. This taxes conventional software architecture, its customization and its user interface.  Haddington Dynamics is uniquely qualified to address these challenges. Our expertise in programming FPGAs gives us supercomputer performance without supercomputer costs.

Currently robotic manufacturing gravitates toward two poles: high-cost, complex specialized systems; or low-cost, low-performance systems. Haddington Dynamics was created to empower a growing user/community base with robotic solutions that simultaneously break cost and performance barriers. The company accelerates adoption and collaboration by open-sourcing its core technology.

The Haddington Dynamics founding leadership team is made up of prominent, highly respected professionals with multifaceted expertise and influence.

The Dexter platform was developed by founder Kent Gilson, a renowned inventor, serial entrepreneur and global pioneer in FPGA-based reconfigurable computing.  Founder and President, Todd Enerson is a multifaceted business development and operations leader with a strong, sound scientific background, who has achieved success in high-level professional recruitment, sales, marketing and strategic partnerships.

With our experienced, successful leadership team in place, Haddington Dynamics is poised to continually expand the leading edge of robotics.
