Full product development #1

CS Product Design

This enclosed data acquisition board was developed for a confidential client according to specified requirements. After successful prototype testing, board and firmware were fully qualified and productionised in time and in cost. The client is ordering the board in 10-50 lot quantities.






Full product development #2CS Product Development

This 19” rack based measurement system is developed for a confidential client against a functional requirement specification. The approach was de-risked by a commercial-off-the-shelf proof of concept demonstrator. The product development included system design, full firmware and embedded software development including a host system API. Three different custom PCB were developed and tested. The mechanical design and integration had been outsourced to one of RFEL’s trusted suppliers. The system was formally tested and fully qualified to international standards.
