At The Hendey Group, we can help bring your product designs to life through our comprehensive product design and development services. In addition to drawing, industrial design, manufacturing engineering, and rapid prototyping, our design and engineering team offers complete hardware and software development services.
Our Hardware & Software Product Development Capabilities
We provide complete project management solutions, including assisting in hardware and software development. Our team has design and development experience with the following markets:
- Renewable energy
- Consumer goods
- Oil and gas
- Sporting goods
- Traction applications
By working with us, you can streamline your development process and maintain your production schedule.
Understanding the Hardware Development Process
Our hardware development process encapsulates every stage from the initial idea to product testing and certification. The stages of the hardware development process can include:
- Technical prototype development
- Engineering prototype development
- Engineering verification testing
- Manufacturing and design testing
- Process verification
- Mass production
Understanding the Software Development and Testing Process
Software development helps you create a product that is innovative, flexible, and intuitive to better serve your customers’ needs. The stages of software development include:
- Debugging and Revisions
Depending on the nature and complexity of the software, it may run through each stage multiple times.
Software development services can also continue after the initial product release to create patches, revisions, and new versions. Every software release should increase productivity, flexibility, or cost-efficiency or answer a consumer need. Working with an experienced software development service provider ensures that your next project doesn’t duplicate other software efforts and stays on the cutting edge of programming development and security.
Hardware Development vs. Software Development
Both software development and hardware development involve multiple design and testing stages. However, the two processes are very different.
Hardware development relies on standardized parts and currently available technology to create finished products. New hardware designs also need to be tested in a variety of circumstances before release to ensure a failure-proof end product.
Software, on the other hand, can develop and change throughout the process. It runs through thousands of test cases while hardware may be put through fewer— but equally stringent—tests. Additionally, problems can be fixed post-release with patches and new versions.
Circuit Board Layout and Testing | PCB Design
Circuit board layout and testing services allow you to design and configure your printed circuit board (PCB) to best fit your product’s needs. Even small variations in component placement and organization can drive significant improvements in performance, efficiency, or space reduction.
Our expert design and engineering team uses Eagle and Altium software to optimize and bring your circuit board layouts to life. They allow us to view a visual representation of the product concept, allowing us greater insight into how to make the best use of all available space for a more powerful and efficient design.
