Electronic and electromechanical assemblies will need to be designed by specialists to ensure that they operate as required and satisfy all of the necessary safety criteria. Manufacturers will sometimes turn to electronic specialists in order to complete these steps on their behalf.
After a full briefing on the proposed functionality and layout of the design, the manufacturer will develop technical diagrams using the necessary software. These can then be passed to an electronics manufacturer for production; however, some electronics design companies also offer development and prototyping services to iron out any potential issues and to ensure that the assembly operates as required. Prototyping involves the production of a small batch of products for testing purposes; modifications and changes can then be made accordingly where necessary.
The design of electronic and electromechanical assemblies is often a specialist process.
The designer will discuss the proposed functionality and layout of the design, before developing technical diagrams using the necessary software.
These can then be passed to electronics manufacturers for production, or the designer can produce prototypes for testing purposes.
Once testing is complete, modifications can be made where necessary.
