Product Development Services Tailored to Your Performance-Critical Embedded Applications
Accelerate your time to market with D3.
We are a 100% U.S.-based company that develops end-to-end solutions integrating sensors, connectivity, embedded processing, and AI to deliver advanced perception for performance-critical applications. Since 1999, we have leveraged our cross-market experience to creatively solve complex embedded design problems on over 500 customer projects.
Our design services include full-cycle embedded product development engagements, with the option for you to 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 so you get faster design cycles and reduce your product development risk.
We also offer development contracts where you can buy or license our IP. We customize DesignCore® Platforms to meet your needs.
What is the D3 Advantage?
- Unique expertise in end-to-end sensing and embedded performance-critical system design.
- Proven product development process demonstrated to minimize your technical, schedule, and cost risk.
- Strong industry partnerships providing access to innovative technology and expert support, allowing our team to succeed in difficult, specialized projects.
- 100% U.S.-based design, prototyping, and manufacturing allowing us to handle sensitive projects and secure supply chains (we also offer off-shore capabilities through partners if desired).
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 manufacturable product that conforms to your supply chain.
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.
PROVEN STAGE-GATE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
We Start by working with you to develop product requirements and identify technical, cost, and schedule risks.
ENGINEERING VERIFICATION TEST UNIT
Rapid proof of concept based on our DesignCore® Platforms.
Next we design hardware, firmware, and applications using a systems engineering process and our DesignCore® Platforms.
DESIGN VERIFICATION TEST UNIT
Fit/form/function prototype that demonstrates all features using production components.
Then we transfer the complete hardware and software design to you as well as support any production needs.
PRODUCT VERIFICATION TEST UNIT
Flexible: may be built by D3 or client. D3 assists with validation and manufacturing optimization.
