Prototyping

Prototyping

To effectively manage resources and minimize costs when creating a new product, modifying an existing one, or testing an idea, the right step is prototyping. Depending on the stage of the project, the testing can be with a board for making an experimental model of an electrical circuit, a functional printed circuit board and a printed circuit board in finished form. For your convenience, we offer several types of prototyping plan options. If none of them meets your needs, contact us to make you an individual offer.

Plan Start

For the START plan, we create a conceptual model or prototype that provides a basis for researching the idea of ​​a product or modernization. For the hardware we use ready-made components, modules and development tools. For firmware and / or software we use free open source software and services.

Where it is suitable

  • for early phase
  • testing an idea.
PlanStart

What does it include

Consultation

  • Check the idea
  • A brief overview of design and manufacturing capabilities
  • List of components and materials
  • Rough cost estimate
  • Project sketch

Development

  • Mounted modules and components on an experimental PCB
  • Basic firmware with free libraries and services
  • Instructions for testing and use

Goal

Study of the possibilities of the idea, the methods and the technical challenges before its realization.

This plan is right for you if:

  • You want to test your idea or concept at a low cost
  • You need to define the basic components and materials
  • You need to check the technical challenges before the project is completed
The price for the transport of the prototypes and the documentation to them is not included in the prototyping plan and is paid separately.
 Plan Standard / Standard +
The “STANDARD” and “STANDARD +” plans are aimed at companies that have already tested their idea or concept with a prototype.

Where it is suitable

This plan is suitable for companies that offer software products related to hardware, but have no experience with hardware development or companies developing hardware, but in areas other than those for the specific project.

What does it include

Consultation

  • Check the idea
  • Overview of design and production options
  • Cost Estimation
Development
  • Schematic diagram
  • Material List (BOM)
  • PCB Design (Placement and Routing)
  • 3D PCB design
  • Firmware (for “STANDARD +” plan only)

Production

  • PCB production
  • PCB Assembly
  • Hardware testing
  • Operating Instructions

Goal

Creating hardware according to customer needs Development and testing of basic firmware functions Creating a functional prototype that works sustainably and can be used for demonstrations or subsequent development of the idea.

This plan is right for you if:

  • You want to get a working prototype one step before the final version
  • You need to save money by using a commercially available box
  • You need to draw the attention of investors or like-minded people to the idea or product
The price for the transport of the prototypes and the documentation to them is not included in the prototyping plan and is paid separately.

The value of the plan covers only the cost of labor and materials. You receive exclusive rights to manufacture your product, but we retain intellectual property rights until the license is paid in full. The value of the license depends on the chosen plan and is paid as a fixed annual fee and a percentage of the revenue you generate once you start selling the product.
To keep the intellectual property you have to pay the residual price. It is paid in case of further realization or start of sales. The lease can be terminated at any time, but you lose your intellectual property rights.
The plan may be terminated at any time. You will be refunded only a proportional part of the advance payment for the current month and you will receive everything developed so far in accordance with the specific terms of the contract.
This does not usually happen. Of course, there are always exceptions. In these cases, we take the risk.
