How an In-House Prototyping Solution Improves Rapid Prototyping and Product Development

The case for in-house: How owning your own solution improves rapid prototyping and product development

History has proven that as technology evolves and becomes more refined, it also becomes more compact, powerful and accessible. For example, the ENIAC Computer – considered the first computer – weighed in at 30 tons and filled a 1,500-square-foot room. Its 40 cabinets stood at a towering nine feet and contained 8,000 vacuum tubes, 10,000 capacitors, 6,000 switches and 1,500 relays. Obviously, this ground-breaking behemoth is a far cry from the hand-held supercomputers we carry in our pockets each day.

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Prototypes Early

Innovation is a never ending source of potential breakthroughs for manufacturers. There are so many benefits that come along with turning a good idea into a successful invention that it’s no wonder many manufacturers are constantly designing their new products from scratch to benefit themselves within their particular field. But many manufacturers aren’t aware of how to optimize this process so that they waste the least amount of money and get the most benefit. For example, a large number of manufacturers don’t invest much time or money in creating prototypes.

[Infographic]5 Types of PCB Failures to Keep Your Eye On While Prototyping

Problems with PCBs can happen after many years of use, or PCBs can have malfunctions mistakenly built into the board during manufacturing. Most PCBs problems are repairable thanks to their physical nature.
