For those who have never picked up a guitar and dreamed of being the next Tom Petty, iZotope designs award-winning audio products and technologies for musicians, music producers and audio post engineers around the world. In a nutshell, they develop the software that makes the music you listen to sound awesome.
As a talented musician himself, iZotope CEO, Mark Ethier saw a need for a professional recording system where technology didn’t get in the way of a creative moment. iZotope set out to develop a simple recording system that could be used by anyone from professional musicians and garage bands to aspiring solo artists. Spire Studio was born.
Dr. Randall W. Porter, a neurosurgeon in Phoenix, AZ, created Medical Memory after his father was diagnosed with cancer. His father lived in Chicago and Dr. Porter experienced the challenges and frustrations of having to rely on family members to accurately recite complex information about his father’s condition and treatment. The experience had a profound effect on Dr. Porter’s approach to patient communication in his own practice and ultimately would change patient engagement across health care.
When a leading decentralized exchange platform was looking to create a premium cryptocurrency hardware wallet that would provide unmatched security protection and ease of use, they turned to security architect expert, Josh Datko of Cryptotronix and Cardinal Peak.

Medical imaging provides valuable information to doctors and surgeons. These benefits are also important to veterinary professionals who have animals as their patients. Your dog may have an obstruction in his stomach, or a prize racehorse may be pregnant.
X-rays, ultrasounds, MRI, and CT scans are critical non-intrusive diagnostic tools. E.I. Medical came to us for a strong software team with extensive experience in video and a requirement for both low latency and high resolution. We developed embedded software including video processing for a portable ultrasound imaging device.
When LucidSound needed support on a high-quality surround sound gaming headset for Xbox One, they turned to Cardinal Peak. Because we have deep audio experience on our team, we hit the ground running and provided embedded engineering development and hardware consulting, along with quality assurance every step of the way – a Cardinal Peak practice. We were able to design a driver to communicate with Microsoft’s wireless module and implement a driver for the audio codec chip, all while working with GIP (gaming interface protocol).
The Cardinal Peak Way
Many engineering firms deliver product designs, but Cardinal Peak brings fully tested, market-ready products to life.
Outsourced Engineering Done Right
We’ve partnered with clients to deliver successful products to market hundreds of times. Unlike many firms, we don’t bid on a project and then scramble to find a team. With more than 100 veteran engineers on staff, we’re ready when you are with a connected, in-place, end-to-end team. And with Cardinal Peak, you won’t have to worry about middle-of-the-night calls with an offshore team. We’re based in Lafayette, Colorado, just outside of Denver/Boulder, so we’re working when you’re working.
