Product development services for performance-critical systems

Get to market faster with D3’s embedded systems development services. 

We support your team with our expertise in autonomous machines, sensors, imaging,
optics, edge computing, algorithms, robotics, and electrification.

Our design services include full-cycle embedded product development engagements, with the option for you to own the resulting IP. We work as part of your development team and follow our proven Define, Design, Deploy development methodology. We typically leverage one or more of our DesignCore® Platforms or Solutions as reference designs so you get faster design cycles and reduce your product development risk.

We also offer fixed-price development contracts, where you can buy or license our IP. We customize the DesignCore® product to meet your needs.


What makes us different?

  • Expertise in electronic system design for autonomous machines, sensors, imaging, optics, edge computing, algorithms, robotics, and electrification.
  • Proven technology embodied in our DesignCore® Platforms and Solutions.
  • A proven development process demonstrated to minimize your technical risk, schedule risk, and cost risk.

PROVEN STAGE-GATE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

1. Define

We Start by working with you to develop product requirements and identify technical, cost, and schedule risks.

EVT

YOU RECEIVE:
ENGINEERING VERIFICATION TEST UNIT

Rapid proof of concept based on our DesignCore® Platforms.

2. Design

Next we design hardware, firmware, and applications using a systems engineering process and our DesignCore® Solutions.

DVT

YOU RECEIVE:
DESIGN VERIFICATION TEST UNIT

Fit/form/function prototype that demonstrates all features using production components.

3. Deploy

Then we transfer the complete hardware and software design to you as well as support any production needs.

PVT

YOU RECEIVE:
PRODUCT VERIFICATION TEST UNIT

Flexible: may be built by D3 or client. D3 assists with validation and manufacturing optimization.

Hardware Design

From requirements to validation, we apply proven systems engineering and design-for-manufacture (DFM) expertise. Our embedded systems meet your design standards. Our deep knowledge of electronics, photonics, mechatronics, and optics assures a smooth transition from design to production. Our productization processes, including up-front BOM optimization, guarantee a manufactureable product that conforms to your supply chain.

Software Design

We develop algorithms, applications, and firmware optimized for your embedded products. Our software is rigorously unit-tested at each step prior to integration and verification. Once integrated, our regression testing validates that all requirements are met.
