As a specialist electronics prototyping company we will iterate through several prototype developments before being ready for volume manufacturing and launch.
Once a client has achieved consensus on the optimum look and dimensions, we can agree the locations, space and form factors for the embedded electronics and electro-mechanical devices. We can then progress through engineering prototype and pre-production prototypes as required to suit client development programme.
Prior to this, we will often develop a proof-of-concept (POC) prototype for proving the fundamental concept at the lowest possible cost. For many custom circuit board designs, a POC prototype can be built on an electronic development kit such as an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, rather than expend unnecessary cost on designing and assembling a custom pcb.
Even after the functionality has been tested and confirmed, pre-production prototypes also allow you to optimise electronic prototype assembly procedures, work instructions and documentation.
This approach also allows you to gather information about realistic prototype electronic manufacturing times and costs.
Our experienced team can handle all these pre-production aspects for you. Our facilities in Ipswich UK include manual and automated prototype manufacture encompassing electrical and mechanical assembly, wiring harnesses, device programming and functional testing.
