Ready to turn your idea into a product? This is where it all begins.
In this stage, we work to translate a product idea into a technically and commercially feasible development project. Our proof-of-concept work minimizes technology risks and analyzes technology trade-offs to create the most appropriate solution architecture. This phase involves close, direct dialog between the client and our Systems and Lead Development Engineers.
Defining the requirements for your product.
We combine our wireless product knowledge with your product domain knowledge to define requirements for your product. Depending on your development needs, we may prepare comprehensive, detailed requirements for approval before development work starts, or we may recommend a more agile process to refine the concise, initial requirements in sync with the development so that aggressive time-to-market or performance requirements can be met.
Activities and deliverables during product definition may include:
- Kick-off Meetings
- Product Requirements Document or Product Requirements Summary
- Test Plan
- Project Plan
- Requirements Review Meeting
This is where your product takes shape and comes to life.
During the product development stage, we'll complete the design and create prototypes used to evaluate product features. Often, hardware and software aspects of your development will be developed with different, but synchronized approaches. For example, we may recommend a traditional alpha/beta development approach for the system hardware along with a multi-stage iterative process for software.
The following activities and deliverables are typical in this phase:
- Hardware Development
- Firmware/Software Development
- Design Reviews
- Sprint Version Releases
- Test Reports
- Software and Firmware File Releases
- Hardware Design File Releases
- Integration and Unit Testing
- Design Verification Testing
- Pre-Certification Testing
We guarantee a passing grade, where others fail 80% of the time.
During certification, we complete and support regulatory and certification testing including (for medical domains) providing supporting documentation for IEC 60601, ISO 13485 and FDA submittals.
Typical certifications include:
- FCC/IC/CE Testing
- Safety Testing (UL, MET and more)
- Environmental Testing (IP-xx, shock, vibration and more)
- Cellular PTCRB testing
- Cellular Network Acceptance Testing (Verizon, Sprint, Rogers and more)
Our goal is to quickly get your product into production so it can produce revenue.
We will efficiently transfer your new design to manufacturing and provide support for pre-production builds and testing. Often, this stage will integrate the deployment of manufacturing test equipment we may have developed in a parallel project. We work with all manufacturers, and have close partnership with several.
