Built a great demo based on Arduino or other OSHW modules and want to make it into concrete and tangible hardware product? Seeed can help out! We can provide schematic design, component selection, PCB layout, mechanical design, packaging designs and other relevant services to contribute to hardware product design.
We offer a fast online prototyping service. If components all comes from Seeed OPL, you can order PCB assembly service directly online, and your prototype can be done in 7-10 days. For prototypes with non OPL components, you may reach to firstname.lastname@example.org with basic files(Gerber, BOM and PCB parameters) and we will get in touch with you with quote and estimated lead-time. An account manager will follow through till completion during the process.
OPL is a package of 500+ kinds of components which are commonly-used, quality reliable, DFM friendly and sufficient stock. Also, we share their eagle library to download. This library can greatly increase the development efficiency and accelerate the engineering/manufacturing speed. OPL is highly recommended and commonly used in open source community. including IC, resistor, capacitor, inductor, diode, transistor, crystal, oscillator, connector and fuse,etc. Learn more about OPL
DFM leads to enormous benefits including reduction of assemble costs, better quality, shorter lead time, among many others. We will output DFM review report to our customers for modification. Within our DFM review report, we focus on reviewing production files including Gerber, BOM, Mechanical Drawing, Test requirement and manufacturability etc.
Upon introducing a new product, we set up a standard process for introduction including performing DFM analysis to ensure product manufacturability, cross checking any production files(BOM, Gerber, test plan, sample), inputting manufacturing requirement, and establishing quality control plan. By the end of a trial production, we will provide you with trial manufacturing report and improvement suggestions.
Test plan development is a part of product development that are crucial to product quality. Base on product functionality, we develop testing plan including what items to test, how to perform these checks and testing specification. We stride to make efficient and automatic testing method; after debugging the test board and test code, we provide a test document.During trail production, our Test Engineer will continue monitoring and make necessary improvements to ensure the testing stability. About detailed related test information, please refer to our wiki link. Learn more about Testing Plan
