By expertly managing risk, cost, time and quality, we ensure maximum return on their investment.
Independent & scalable
We are completely independent of any manufacturer, technology or design house. This ensures commercial alignment with our clients’ best interests. We are also committed to protecting their IP.
Our teams can scale to meet even the most aggressive time-to-market and product cost objectives. As a result, our clients can confidently schedule launch and forecast revenue, while our rigorous processes and regulatory expertise ensure quality is never compromised.
Design for excellence
As world leaders in product development, creating breakthrough technology is simply what we do, and design for excellence (DFX) is baked into that process.
We focus on risk reduction during every stage of development, ensuring we always reach the right technology choices for our clients.
From the outset of each project, we live and breathe design for manufacture (DFM), test (DFT), cost (DFC) and disassembly (DFD) to minimise environmental impact.
New product introduction
We have a robust and proven process for audit and selection of manufacturing partners, including aggressive cost-reduction and should-cost analysis.
We can provide full outsource supply chain development, or offer a helping hand to solve a specific manufacturing problem.
Transfer to manufacture
We also perform manufacturing line and process design, test development and validation for rapid production ramp up, having recently taken a project from pencil sketch to 20,000 units in just 5 months.
We also offer on-going support for optimisation of our clients’ manufacturing processes.
During more than six decades of world-class product development, we’ve created whole production lines for high volume consumer products, custom manufacturing equipment and complete outsourced supply chains.
Our product realisation capabilities are globally dispersed between our Centre of Excellence in Seattle, our Cambridge, UK headquarters, our Singapore and Tokyo offices and our dedicated NPI centre in Hong Kong.
Consequently, we have extensive experience working with manufacturing partners worldwide – including Europe, the Americas and Asia – in volumes from 10s to 10s of millions.

Tech, tools & facilities
Our flexible, responsive, and agile manufacturing facilities are ideally suited to electronic and electromechanical product builds, enabling us to rapidly build short product runs to an extremely high quality. We can build our own PCBAs using industrial representative equipment and ensure manufacturability during design. Having our own EPD facility is also extremely helpful in development, driving out DfX activities in eCAD and feeding test results back into the design process from an early stage.
Computer-aided design & engineering
Using the latest CAD and CAE systems, we design 3D parts for single tests pieces through to complete production assemblies with thousands of individual components. In addition to maintaining the most up-to-date software, we invest in developing proprietary tools and processes. Meanwhile, data management and version control systems allow us to work anywhere securely and efficiently.
Anechoic test chamber
Our custom anechoic radio and antenna test chamber is a highly sophisticated 5m cube. Inside, we carry out automated three-dimensional measurement and visualization of wireless device behavior and test body-worn technology using body phantoms or real live test subjects. This helps us to understand and optimize real-word RF performance of products such as smart implants (including implanted telemetry), connected drug delivery devices and wearables.
Our electronic and mechanical prototyping workshops allow us to produce technically credible prototypes that bring ideas to life and offer a powerful demonstration of their value. All while maintaining extremely high standards of quality that conform to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and ISO 14001 regulations. Using the latest CNC and milling machines, lathes, welding gear and wire harness and cable assembly tools, we are able to produce parts very quickly and assemble full-scale working prototypes for testing and consumer trials.
