The RAVE Advantage

Founded in 1988, RAVE® is a computer hardware manufacturer. We integrate world-class computer system solutions, offering Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom-engineered options tailored to client requirements. We support both the Defense and Commercial industries and other organizations that want computer solutions that meet their specific requirements, with performance optimized for their specific applications.

Our seasoned Product Development team operates in our onsite engineering lab where masterful computer technology solutions are configured in new, innovative ways. Our product engineers have a laser focus on innovation, creating unique systems that are consistently smaller, lighter, faster and optimized for high performance. As a technology partner to critical component OEMs including NVIDIA, Intel and various HMD manufacturers, we preview new technologies prior to their commercial launch. This provides us with key advantages in problem-solving, compatibility testing and optimization.

Each of our systems is thoroughly tested for reliability and hardware/software compatibilities to ensure the highest level of quality.

We welcome organizations to leverage our technical expertise, strategic partnerships, and program experience.

Our Facilities

RAVE is located in Sterling Heights, Michigan, with a 36,000 square foot facility designed to accommodate workflows and flexibilities as needed.  We are ITAR- and ISO 9001-2015 Design-certified with state-of-the-art ESD technologies.

Our Technology Integration Center is fully equipped with power buses and network switches at each workstation, enabling each technician and engineer to operate independently. Its flooring is permanently coated with electrostatic discharge material to prevent damage to systems and components. Each workstation and burn-in rack is also static dissipative and fully grounded to protect against possible static electricity damage.

Each workstation features a dedicated Keyboard-Video-Mouse switch so that all computers on the technician’s rack can be controlled with a single console, which improves manufacturing efficiency while reducing power consumption.

Our 30,000 square foot Corporate Warehousing and Distribution Facility includes three truck wells, allowing for repetitive stocking of inventory and the flexibility of capturing larger projects.

Awards and Certification

RAVE Computer is proud to be recognized as a leader and innovator in the computer industry. We’ve earned the honor of being named Michigan Technology Company of the Year and Partner of the Year nine times over the last decade, including multiple times with Intel Corporation and NVIDIA.

Why Choose RAVE?

Our Design Approach

In terms of our design approach, we initially listen to our client’s requirements, points of pain and ideas including budget, performance, environment and lifecycle considerations. We then function as a technology consultant, helping identify different alternatives and technology choices. We are vendor-neutral. We then provide a quote including BOM and availabilities. This intelligent flexibility is something that our customers simply cannot find with other major manufacturers.
