PCB DESIGN & PROTOTYPING

While there are a lot of commercially available electronics prototyping platforms, such as Raspberry Pi’s and Arduinos, the best solution is a custom circuit board, optimised for power consumption, size and shape, that contains all your sensors, power management and processing in one board.

Think Engineer can select suitable electronic components for your prototype, create electronics schematics, multilayer Printed Circuit Board (PCB) designs, industry standard manufacturing files and produce an initial run of your custom PCB, whether you want 5 for in house testing of 500 for larger scale user trials, we can produce them for you any a variety of sizes shapes and colours!

Contact us to discuss a custom PCB for you project using the form on the right.

Or call us on 0118 327 2430 to talk it over

We don’t offer high volume production services, but we are happy to introduce you to our manufacturing partners or assist in handing over all required design files and test procedures to your manufacturers after we've created and tested the design.

HOW IT WORKS

Consultation

We will start by building a mutual understanding of your business / project and talk over some options before doing research.

At the end of this an initial proposal will be made.

Consultation is free!

System Design

We will carry out detailed research into the technologies which could be used, identify necessary subsystems and design all parts of the project and how they interact both with each other and existing systems.

A system design document will then be created.

Design Validation

We will endeaver to prove the concept and de-risk the system we have proposed with early stages of software design and hardware integration. The foundation for the rest of the development project is now in place.

Build It

Custom software, PCB design, creation and testing, data analysis and algorithm development, 3D design/ Printing, all as necessary depending on the scope of the project.

Integration and Testing

This is the interesting bit. Your idea comes to life, all our systems, hardware, software, etc come together and a working prototype is the result.

Rinse and Repeat

The process usually requires some in-project changes at this stage which will mean going over those last two steps again.

Project Finalisation

Now we hand over all technical know-how, data and designs to you. We can also assist on the technical side of handover, communicating with your technical departments, manufacturer or other 3rd party as required.
