CDI becomes an extension of your engineering team and our process helps get your company’s products to market fast.


For over four decades, CDI has focused on engineering innovative products and solutions that enhance success for our clients within their target markets. With the leadership of CEO Jim Reardon, CDI has earned a reputation known for engineering excellence. We work with world-class clients including Boeing, Panasonic and GE in their design, manufacturing and lifecycle support.

At CDI we take a “timely team approach” to every project, and this is because we believe that making swift decisions as a team is fundamental in creating a culture driven by excellence. Because of the confidence in our talent and our focused commitment to transparency with clients, CDI offers fixed-price contracts, which is a rare and powerful offering in the engineering services world.

We pride ourselves in being able to bring our services “full circle,” meaning we provide lifecycle support for the products we design and manufacture, and have long-term support commitments that span 30+ years. When you become a client at CDI, you will encounter the most talented and creative problem solvers who are genuinely excited to help you at all stages of the product lifecycle. That’s the CDI difference.

CDI – A Brand of One Stop Systems

With a recent acquisition in 2018, One Stop Systems (OSS) is now an owner of the brand Concept Development, Inc. (CDI). “Together, these two innovative companies bring a focus to specialized high-performance computing, with highly complementary technologies and skill sets. CDI has a broad experience designing and delivering high-performance systems for the aerospace and in-flight entertainment markets, which complements OSS’ capabilities in designing and manufacturing specialized high-performance computing products for rugged airborne environments, media, and entertainment. Together, they have more capable resources for bringing high-performance computing to the in-flight entertainment market and others, while offering a greater value proposition to our combined customer base,” said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO.


About One Stop Systems (OSS)

One Stop Systems (OSS)  is the leader in specialized high-performance computers for vertical markets requiring the fastest processing and storage on the planet. These technology-hungry applications include AI (artificial intelligence), deep learning, seismic exploration, financial modeling, media, and entertainment, security and defense. While many of these applications can run on a single HPC server, the highest end applications require a rack-scale deployment of HPC servers.

OSS maintains a first mover market move with many board-level solutions in the world’s fastest emerging interconnect technologies such as PCI Express (PCIe), NVLink, Infiniband and next generation Ethernet, OSS is the largest provider of PCIe adapters and expansion components world-wide. OSS utilizes these high speed adapters and board level solutions to produce ground breaking, large scale, modular compute accelerators, flash storage arrays and specialty servers that push the traditional system limits beyond the household server OEM. We also partner with other leaders in HPC technologies such as Intel CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs, Xilinx FPGAs and HGST NVMe solid-state flash products to provide our customers with a true “One Stop” HPC system.
