ELECTRONIC PROTOTYPE

An electronic prototype is a combination of hardware and software design with custom printed circuit boards (PCB) that are assembled into a fully functional prototype.

FROM PROVING IT WORK TO FULLY CONNECTED

From start to finish, our electrical expertise can take a project from initial concept and specification all the way through production documentation. Electrical development can be can be done in parallel while housings are cast and other parts are machined.  To meet the project goals, our team can execute stand-alone product hardware or develop connected devices with software and digital user interface display.

EVALUATIONS, DESIGN AND TESTING

To begin, our in-house electrical engineers review specification requirements and evaluate sub components or subsystems. We develop a system architecture to identify the components needed and vet core technologies. Using off the shelf components, we’ll fabricate a bigboard prototype with handmade circuits. Once the prototype functionality of software has been validated and the hardware needs are defined, we’ll move into full circuit design, schematic capture, PCB layouts and finally, the prototype circuit board.

The final working prototype will deliver near production or pre-production functionality to test and fully understand the design before manufacturing begins. Throughout the process, components are validated with methods such as unit and regression testing.
