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 systems, connected automation, and embedded vision.

Our design services include full-cycle embedded product development engagements, where you 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 as reference designs. In this way 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 systems, connected automation, and embedded vision.

Proven technology embodied in our DesignCore™ Platforms and Reference Designs.

A proven development process demonstrated to minimize your technical risk, schedule risk, and cost risk.


  • Define

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

    You Receive Engineering Verification Test Unit

    Rapid proof of concept based on our DesignCore™ Platforms.

  • Design

    Next we design hardware, firmware, and applications using a systems engineering process and our DesignCore™ Reference Designs.

    You Receive Design Verification Test Unit

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

  • Deploy

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

    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.

Along with this proven design process, D3 Engineering has the specialized design skills you need to get to market faster with new products. Explore our product areas (below) or contact us today.
