Electronic product design and development services provide a practical and affordable way to achieve business goals by utilizing proven strategies that support your company’s vision. Whether you are looking to introduce wireless or IoT capabilities into an existing product, implement new electronic product designs, create circuit board schematics, implement a PCB design and layout, or a host of other electronic design implementations, VPI provides full-service electronic engineering and manufacturing capabilities for your project needs.
As a custom electronic design and development company, VPI Technology provides a multi-faceted approach to your electronic design and manufacturing needs. Our engineering and electronic design experts will work with you to model and create an electronic or wireless product design that fits your specifications.
Electronic Prototyping Services
A simple yet working prototype can be very beneficial for those looking to show their product concept to potential investors, stakeholders, or business partners in physical form rather than a drawing or written idea. Our electronic product development process produces parts that are carefully selected to enable high-quality yet economical and readily available components for a smooth manufacturing process. With 3D printing, our experience with injection molding, and using state-of-the-art methods, we can design elements to be efficiently produced. Prototype design elements include the following:
- Initial design implementation
- Evaluation of prototype for
- Interface with users and other systems
- Overall feasibility

Electronic Product Design and Development Service Considerations
What should you consider doing before jumping in and starting work on a prototype for a new product?
Systems engineering tasks that must be conducted to ensure successful product design and development outcomes include designing the system’s architecture, developing a high-level system design, and fleshing out a detailed product requirements document. These activities enable thought processes about the product that may have been overlooked or not considered. Making high-level design decisions at the outset of the electronic product development process is vital.
Below are the approach steps VPI takes for successful electronic product design and development:
Electronic System Architecture
System Architecture development tasks involve high-level design exercises to create the big picture of how the product will function and be used. Examples of electronic system architecture include defining inputs and outputs, user interaction, use cases, major system components, objectives (form factor, fit, function, target bill of materials cost, power consumption, etc.), creating a system context diagram, external interfaces, and other high-level requirements.
While System Design may seem similar to System Architecture, it covers different objectives, including capturing high-level designs in a system specification document. These high-level designs include electrical design, mechanical design, software/application design, firmware design, and design for manufacturability requirements.
The electrical design process involves researching and selecting major system components, including processors and logic components, power and control systems, interfaces between devices and humans, and communications for wired and wireless connectivity.
Mechanical design maps out how the product components come together and interact spatially and structurally with an efficient cost perspective.
Industrial design is often part of the System Design portion of a project where the look and feel are designed and interact with environments and people using the device.
Software or application high-level designs are mapped out, defining how users will act with the system.
Firmware design or embedded system design provides input on what electrical components are used and what embedded system protocols will be used.
Design for Manufacturability
Lastly, design for manufacturability evaluates how the product can be engineered so that it can be manufactured in mass quantities with readily available parts.
