Embedded Design Services

Embedded Product Design to Order

BVM’s Embedded Design Services are there to take your ideas from concept to initial designs and prototyping – and turn them into manufacturable products.

Our OEM Embedded Product Design services are adaptable and flexible so they can be applied to a variety of every day industrial application purposes – even harsh environments or specialist use – where operation and maximum up-time in diverse temperature and environmental extremes are unavoidable. Our designs can be made to be shock resistant, dust and waterproof (IP certified) – and optimised for 24/7 running for both hardware and operating system software.

Embedded Product Design is a specialised area that requires trained expertise and the right supporting tools. In addition, there’s also the need for practical knowledge and experience around industrial design, mechanical design, thermal engineering along regulatory certification requirements. For our customers, BVM appreciate that it’s often difficult to obtain all these elements & skills within their respective teams  – and with rapid changes in technology and an ever- shrinking requirement for time to market, this makes the investment in tools, people and infrastructure expensive . That’s where the services of a reliable partner such as BVM can become an immense advantage for our customers.

BVM offers a wide range of Embedded Design Services that are intended towards transforming an idea into a complete product. This includes the determining of system architecture, hardware design, software (operating system) design, mechanical design, prototyping, design validation and pilot production.

With expertise in designing for product life cycle, BVM brings in a wealth of experience in designing products that cut across various domains such as Industrial Automation, IoT and many more.

Through skilled personnel, latest tools, sophisticated lab and trusted eco-system partners, we cater where legacy platforms need to be provided. Our dedicated team, a blend of experience and innovation, has the expertise to handle projects ranging from small form factor designs to multi-system designs.

From Concept, To Design for Manufacture

BVM Products are Designed for Manufacture. Our design team always keeps this important feature in mind throughout the design duration, right from initial concept – and well before any level of product sign off is completed. During the design processes, the design will be refined and honed along the way to make it suitable for repeatable production.

Our designs will always consider:-

  • Set up and tooling costs
  • Volume production costs
  • Maintenance costs
  • Environmental effects
Rail PC - Custom Design

BVM’s Design for Manufacture processes will always allow every commercial (and technical) consideration to be identified within design phase, the most cost-effective place to catch & address everything.
