System Architecture & Conceptual Product Development
The development of high-level system architecture is a vital first step in a product’s design process. The vision of the new product’s functionality, features, and competitive advantages are captured in this effort. The path for the development of the product is defined and the product’s conceptual design is validated during this process. Integration of multiple electronic components and integration with other systems or users is also defined. System architecture design can outline the integration of numerous technological characteristics into a highly complex product that performs to its design specifications. Depending on the characteristics and complexities of the design, the system architecture and conceptual product development process can be straightforward or more involved.
Check out our product design and development and electronic product development pages for more information on our system architecture and conceptual product development capabilities, or give us a call at 801-495-2310 for further details. VPI provides advanced product design, electronic system architecture, and product development services based on your design specifications.
Custom vs Prebuilt Conceptual Trade Studies
Certain electronic applications can benefit from studies that are designed to develop a specific trade matrix. If there are questions concerning the benefits and tradeoffs regarding custom versus pre-existing off-the-shelf computing modules (for example, Raspberry Pi), VPI can develop protocols to determine what is best for your application. VPI’s system architecture and conceptual product development studies can help isolate the following advantages:
- Lower costs
- Unique features
- Quality improvement
- Quality competitor advantages
The Conceptual Product Development Process
When we initially meet with you regarding your system architecture development process, our engineers will discuss your project goals. Once the engineers have established a good grasp of the project objectives, in the second meeting they will proceed with their research and present their findings. Including conflict areas and overall recommendations. Third and fourth meetings could also take place depending on the objectives and difficulty of the project.
System Architecture & Electronic Component Vendors
One of the biggest factors in system architecture and conceptual product development is cost savings. When you team with VPI, our engineers will work with you to help negotiate pricing with electronic component vendors. Establishing fair pricing on a part built into the early product design can save you money in the long run. Once final components are selected, the pre-negotiated pricing on those components can lower the bill of material costs.
System Architecture & System Development
Based on the combined experience of developing processor and controller-based systems for military, government, industrial, and commercial clients, our engineers have extensive experience with numerous types of microprocessors, microcontrollers, and wireless modules or chips and have the capability to develop products based on many other controllers and processors. VPI works with a broad line of processors, some of which include:
- Nordic Semiconductors
- Texas Instruments
- Freescale Semiconductors
- NXP Semiconductors
