Feasibility Check is indeed the best tool for product design companies to eliminate money and time wastage on product ideas which may not be practical to implement with current technologies. It also finds out risks involved and get prepared to knock down the risk when it arises during product engineering execution. This tool is available at very attractive price from Teq Diligent. Feasibility check at Teq Diligent covers providing multiple architectures of product idea, defining detailed technical requirements, selection of major components, power budgeting, top level BOM costing, estimating product form factor, product engineering project planning, finding out risk items and mitigation plans, product engineering budgeting and so on. At the end of feasibility check, a detailed feasibility report shall be created and submitted to customer which has lot of insightful information about product idea.
Schematic design at Teq Diligent is not simple schematic entry in EDA tools. It also involves component selection, Bill of Material (BOM) generation and optimization to meet certain BOM cost targets, checking electronic design rules, provide PCB layout guidelines by adding appropriate notes / special properties in schematic diagrams, doing component placement analysis. Teq Diligent also employs schematic review methods like symbol verification, net connection verifications and other peer & expert reviews to improve schematic design quality. These schematic level reviews play a major role to eliminate errors in boards early in product design phases. Teq Diligent can work with various Schematic design EDA tools like Cadence ORCAD capture, Altium Designer, Mentor Graphic DxDesigner, Zuken Cadstar etc.
PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design is the most critical phase of custom hardware design. At Teq Diligent, PCB layout design involves footprint creation, footprint QA, placement of components, constraint management, pre-routing simulations, routing, post-routing simulations, design data QA, DFM, Gerber release. Teq Diligent has worked on various complicated PCB design projects - Multilayer (up to 10 layers) board design, Impedance controlled circuit board design, high component density PCB, Blind-buried / MicroVia / HDI board design. Teq Diligent provides various PCB level simulation services like thermal simulations, Signal Integrity (SI) analysis, EMI-EMC simulations. These simulations help to predict the board behaviour during real scenarios and take preventive or cautionary measures to improve performance of boards and eliminate some of the design iterations. Teq Diligent can handle projects using various E-CAD tools - Cadence's Allegro PCB Design Tool, Altium's Altium Designer, Mentor Graphic's Xpedition, Zuken's Cadstar etc.
Product performance and reliability can be achieved by appropriate test and validation. In different processes and standards (ISO, CMMI, DO254), it is emphasized to have independent test and validation to bring-out the most from Test & Validation. Product Design companies can leverage on this idea by off loading test & validation activities to Teq Diligent. Teq Diligent brings different perspectives to test and validate your products to check its performance and reliability in various conditions. Teq Diligent performs various tests like board bring-up tests, functional tests, integration tests, EMI-EMC pre-scan tests to check performance of hardware. Teq Diligent employs hardware validation tests like Thermal profiling, MTBF tests, (Environmental Stress Screening) ESS tests to check the reliability of the hardware. As part of Test & Validation services, Teq Diligent supports customers to carry out certifications and fix bugs of all possible tests to certify as per various standards like FCC, CE, UL, IC, RoHS and REACH.
