Design &
Proof of Concept

We have been designing products for two decades and our hardware and software designs are deployed in millions of homes. Our designs include multiple Set-Top Boxes (STBs), medical devices, smart electric vehicle chargers, IoT telemetry for product logistics and usage, environmental monitors, ultra-small form factor Bluetooth devices and a wide range of other consumer and industrial applications.

About Design & PoC

We can help to develop your product ready for manufacture at scale including software, hardware and full product development, from design to launch. Not only can we design your volume product, but we can also develop the proof of concept (PoC), also known as proof of value (PoV), an important step in developing any product. It’s especially important when developing connected devices and systems because of the increased complexity and added elements such as security and data privacy.

A robust, structured PoC phase means you can test the technical and operational feasibility of your approach, validate the design of your new connected product and test the assumptions in your research and strategy.

Included in PoC & Design

We’ve delivered designs that have deployed in volumes from a handful of units for specialist equipment to many millions of units of consumer electronics.
