How to with Electronics Product Development?

Do you have an electronics product idea but not sure if its technically possible to develop it?
 
Are you wondering how much will it cost to develop it and the price per unit?
 
Are you confused about how the different parts of your product interconnect with each other?
 
These are the most common questions every HW Entrepreneur, maker or inventor has when thinking about developing a new electronic product.
 
At Developpa, we love taking raw ideas from passionate people and transforming them into actual tangible working machines.
 
However, before diving into full design and development, there are a few points that must be defined. These are:
 
Technical Feasibility – Software Architecture – Enclosure Pre-design – Timing
 
Without defining these points first, and just taking it “as it goes” you run into the almost guarantee chances of falling into overspending and long development time extensions.
 
At Developpa, we have as very first requirement for every project, to create a document where all the previously mentioned points are researched and analysed before proceeding any further. We call this work product Developpa Hardware Idea Validation and is our star electronics design services

Device Description

This is a brief pseudo technical description of your device which is useful when textually presenting the idea.  

Hardware Block Diagram

This "map" allows you to graphically visualize all different components from the electronic board and how they interface with each other.

Main Electronic Components

The choice of MCU, specialized chips ,power supply and electro-mechanical components will be the main cost drivers of the device and will determine its performance.  

Software/Firmware Flowchart

Visualize how the software will work and take decisions according to its inputs and outputs.  

MPLAB I/O config

Main SW/FW Components

This includes processes such as WiFi connectivity, DSP, MQTT, SD Card, ADC, etc.

Enclosure Pre-design

We can provide an early design of the enclosure if needed.

Electronic Components Bill of Materials

Approximate costs of electronic components for 1000 units.
