A Guide for Developing Electronic Product Designs

The designing of electronic products is a mature and stable process that requires extensive experience and careful completion of several steps. It just starts with an idea about a product. It is a difficult process to develop an idea but the real task is converting that idea into reality and even in a better way.  

If you have an idea, electronic product design services will design customised electronic product based on your idea and according to your expectations. The task assigned to an electronic product design company is to complete and deliver a product that is ready for manufacturing. The idea can be regarding a product that can be a digital or analogue electronic, automation devices, multisensory IoT network system, power management system and many others. 

The product is developed by following a complete cycle. To make the product ready for manufacturing, several steps need to be followed carefully. From the selection of components to printed circuit board assembly and testing of the final product, the whole process requires extensive care and relevant experience.  

Let’s have a look at what kind of solutions electronic product design services must have to offer you. 

1- Power Electronic Design 

You must check before selecting a design service if they can convert the idea of your power electronics into reality. These types of ideas require deep knowledge of product design due to the variations in types of products.  

The design may require developing a product that needs to manage, process, store or convert electric power. To understand why these type of ideas are complex to be converted into products you must check that the design service will have to design and develop both hardware and firmware to control multiple components and activities.  

The hardware and firmware will be required to develop battery management systems, power converters, charging stations, power supplies, motor controllers and many other power electronic systems. Another thing is the careful selection of semiconductors and power storage to develop an efficient device according to the power, voltage and frequency range requirements.  

2- Hardware Design 

It must be understood that the final product is always hardware so the electronic product design service must be able to develop embedded systems for multiple levels of complexity and performance.  

Along with the hardware development, the nature of the project may also require the integration of multiple peripheral sensors that control multiple devices. Also, based on the ARM cores from Cortex-M to Cortex-A, various microcontrollers and microprocessors. The process of embedded hardware design requires a strong emphasis on debugging as well as documentation.  

3- Printed Circuit Board Design and Layout 

Hardware is a combination of multiple components or devices. For the appropriate working of all devices or components, a precise electric circuit board design is required. A detailed study of datasheets and technical documentation is required before starting the development of the printed circuit board. 

The schematic design of the printed circuit board is prepared with professional CAD software and multiple development tools. The design service must be able to design both high-speed digital interface boards and analogue designs. The digital interface includes USB, HDMI, DDR1/2/3, SATA, while the analogue interface is RF transceivers.  

4- FPGA Design Services 

This electronic product design service is required for clients that are asking for the development of a reliable and high-performance embedded system with full programmability enabled. Based on the project requirement, either a full Field-programable Gate Array (FPGA) can be designed or just certain IP cores can be developed and integrated. 

A brilliant electronic product design service should be equipped with extensive knowledge of Hardware Description Language (HDL) and FPGA development tools.
