Everything should be made as simple
as possible, but no simpler.

About Us

Tycho Logo We opened our doors in 1983 as Tycho Engineering. Among our first designs was an embedded application using the Zilog Z8 microcontroller, including hardware design, firmware development and PCB layout using a light table and decals. The device measured simultaneous teller activity and reported the daily statistics on hardcopy to the bank manager. Certainly a humble beginning, but an important one.

Tel-O-Matic PCB Since then we've been involved in many exciting and diverse projects from testing superconducting accelerator magnets for high-energy physics, to call processing software for low-earth orbit satellites, to ultrasound & MRI medical imaging. We value our customer relations and strive hard to bring high-quality designs to the marketplace. For more details please visit our projects page.

Think Green Logo

Playing our role in energy conservation and business environmental ethics, Omniware has been operating entirely from solar electric power since early 2003. The thinking green icon is a link to Omniware's solar electric plant daily and monthly power production.

Elliott LaBarge


Elliott began working for Omniware in 2014 after receiving his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California, San Diego. Starting with schematic capture and PCB layout, he quickly worked his way up to designing and programming complex FPGA systems. He also works for a reputable small satellite communications company called Vulcan Wireless doing similar FPGA work.




Isaac LaBarge


Isaac has contributed to several of Omniware's projects since 2015. His economics undergraduate studies earned him a bachelor's degree from UCSB in 2010. Through an acute career change he received a master's degree in electrical engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2020 with a thesis focused on machine learning and computer vision. He currently works for Tek84 Inc, an Omniware customer, as an electronic and software design engineer with proficiency in image acquisition and image processing.
