Our History

Inception and First Footprints…

The Founder & Mentor Mr. Ravi Narayanan, is a visionary and veteran entrepreneur with vast experience in the areas of Electronics, Aerospace and IT. He is a renowned consultant in the field of automation, controls and testing and has more than 100 installations designed by him to his credit. Microcon made a modest beginning in 1983 and was a pioneer in providing control and automation solutions to industry that bridged the gap between Electronics, Mechanical and Instrumentation that existed in those early days. It primarily operated as one-man show till 1988 and offered design, consultancy and manufacturing co-ordination services and executed over 100 projects in its first five years.

The main focus areas were Testing including solutions for ATE, test rigs, down to testability analysis; embedded systems development and Windows based software development.
