Technology disciplines with the development of leading, industrial standard solutions, curriculum, training and support.
Our brands include:
We work with a wide-range of organisations. Mainly, we work with educational institutions, generally further education colleges and universities, but also with schools. We supply training providers - those delivering apprentice and technician training to their engineers and also with some of the World's most hi-tech organisations. Their engineers find our solutions are the perfect way to speed up the design process.
"I used Flowcode for the students in a module called "Embedded Systems Engineering" (MSc and MEng module). Some students have never used microcontrollers before and they
were able to use Flowcode easily for basic microcontroller based embedded system design on a ping pong game. The students moved on to use Flowcode for a project on Zigbee
based wireless network system for environment monitoring. The project was very successful."

Our team of highly skilled engineers have vast experience working at various levels of education and industrial engineering, with expertise including computer programming and software engineering, mechanical engineering, embedded electronic engineering, training and curriculum writing. We invest hundreds of thousands of pounds every year in research and development, to ensure that we are developing some of the world's most affordable, user-friendly, rugged and curriculum driven equipment for the most prestigious academic institutions.
We promise our customers that we will support them through the integration and implementation of our solutions into their teaching and training. We do this by offering bespoke training; on-site, or at our UK headquarters. Everything we supply comes with a minimum of 12 months warranty and our promise to support you continuously. Our own team of engineers even offer support through our forum and we have a wealth of well-written curriculum resources available for all of our solutions.
"We have been using Flowcode and E-blocks in most of the electronics courses all over Flanders for the past 8 years. It's a great tool to put your first steps in
embedded programming and it's also great to do the high level stuff like embedded webservers, Bluetooth and USB. The excellent and fast support of the Matrix team
gives teachers the necessary confidence to take their projects to the next level."
