Your company might need custom electronics developed. These electronics might be a prototype for a new product or might be a one-time solution to a unique device such as a component in a factory or a remote controlled vehicle with a specific function. In the case of a robot, it is possible to plug and play single board computers, but sometimes a custom solution is way better. Find a company that can build a prototype circuit board and more.
For someone not familiar with the industry, it no longer takes a large and expensive lab to create a new motherboard. Specifically, the equipment needed to print a board with robotic precision is not entirely cheap, but it can be reused countless times and so these services are highly available and cost effective. Many new businesses have competitive electronics created using robots that are able to print circuit boards with a variety of devices attached.
A good example is a startup that wanted to create a single board computer that was competitive with the Raspberry Pi. They succeeded, and even included some technology that was a better deal for the money by using more generic parts. They created their product by outsourcing the manufacturing to a mid-scale circuit board building company, and the process even at a smaller scale is accurate enough to create a competitive single board computer.
Your project is in good hands. If your team can build the blueprint, our readers can look at the blueprint to see if it matches the technical specifications of our printing robots and even check the blueprints for accuracy. If it is not accurate because of an obscure quirk, then creating a prototype board is the fastest way to see what the errors are. The good news is that a single board can be created without buying an entirely new robot. Ours are very versatile.
Often it takes several prototypes to create an optimized product. At every stage, a product team learns something new about the technology or else get an ideas as to how to optimize the product by getting all the electronics and software to work together. There are a lot of variables, including how software operates to take advantage of available resources.
Tinkering has never been easier with a prototype circuit board that is close to or possibly the exact real thing. A quality robot can be programmed to work with almost any component that can be attached to a green board. There are small robots that take time to do a job, and big ones with greater speed and reach. You should reach for an electronics company that has the capacity to do many things.
