Product Design

Hardware

We can design equipment that ranges from monitoring circuits running for several years from a small battery, to circuits controlling several kilowatts.

Working down to component level allows us to design and manufacture equipment to our client’s exact specifications. We can combine different circuit topologies to meet our clients design requirements.

Our experience with mechanical and practical aspects of hardware design also enables us to offer a design process which takes into consideration all aspects of a project, considering the ‘bigger picture’.

Many companies offer to connect standard modules together to try and achieve a control function. However, without a detailed knowledge of how the modules work at component level, a suitable design is usually not produced, and informative support cannot be offered.

This is not the case at Jubilee Electronics. We pride ourselves on the support that we provide our clients, and the close contact and consultation that we maintain with our customers through all stages of the design process.

Compliance

Compliance and standards accreditation is becoming an increasingly vital part of the electronic design and development process.

As part of Jubilee Electronics ‘turn-key’ bespoke design and manufacturing service, we closely work with our customers and UKAS accredited test labs to define, test and certify their projects and products to the relevant national and international standards.

Please see below how we can take your project through all the required stages of the compliance and accreditation process.

Compliance Process

Project Review and Compliance Appraisal

Pre-Compliance Testing

Testing and Accreditation

Compliance Process

With our on-site testing facilities, close ties with accredited test laboratories, and application of comprehensive testing methods, we work to ensure your product complies with the applicable standards through the full project development cycle.

At the early stages of a project, we work with you to scope and define the applicable standards. We then undertake the design and development work in careful consideration of these standards and applicable test criteria.

All designs are tested in-house prior to any external lab testing to ensure full functionality. We also have available a suite of test equipment that we can provide for in-house pre-compliance testing (vibration test rigs, temperature controlled test ovens, spectrum analysers, RF measurement instruments, ESD equipment, thermal imaging equipment etc.).

With pre-compliance testing complete, we work with accredited laboratories to have your product undergo an applicable suite of tests (EMC, environmental, safety etc.). Once successfully completed, the project Technical File can be compiled, and the Declaration of Conformity can be issued for the CE (or applicable) Mark.

Compliance and Accreditation Process

  • Identify the applicable Standards and Directives.
  • Ascertain the applicable design requirements and parameters for conformity.
  • Identify and undertake appropriate route of design, test and manufacture to ensure conformity.
  • Pre-compliance testing, assessment and analysis of the product’s functionality.
  • Lab compliance testing and accreditation (using applicable UKAS accredited test lab/s).
  • Compile the Technical Documentation

Project Review and Compliance Appraisal

We work with you to scope and define the applicable standards and test criteria for your project.

We provide support and experience to guide our client’s through compliance and regulatory requirements including:

  • CE Marking
  • FCC Compliance
  • EMC
  • RoHS Compliance (all design and manufacturing work undertaken at Jubilee is RoHS compliant).
  • RISs
  • Medical Electrical Equipment and Systems (EN 60601).
  • ATEX

We first determine a products main function, market, industry and sales region.

We then review, scope and define compliance and regulatory requirements.

This allows us to define a list of standards to ensure EMC, Safety and Environmental compliance, from which an applicable suite of tests and documentation/certification requirements can be established.

Trying to modify or re-design your product at a late stage in development to meet newly discovered test and compliance criteria, is always a costly and time consuming approach that we strongly advise against.

It is vital to establish and define compliance and goals and requirements from the outset to ensure a project stays on schedule and on budget!

Why budget for defining applicable standards and compliance requirements?

  • If you want to sell your product anywhere, you can guarantee there will be applicable standards and compliance requirements that you must meet!
  • Determining the relevant standards and compliance/regulatory requirements for your project ensures you can plan ahead for the testing and compliance criteria requirements for your intended market.
  • Defining these standards and criteria at the start of a project also allows a more efficient design and development process, as key compliance design criteria have already been ascertained.
  • The Technical File for your project, a vital component for proving compliance, can also be established from the very start of your project.

Pre-Compliance Testing

Pre-compliance testing is an integral part of the design and development process. It can be used to focus and find solutions on areas identified as potential causes for concern.

Testing at UKAS accredited laboratories is expensive. If a product fails, the additional time and expense required to find and resolve the issue, and then re-test the equipment, can put immense strain on a project.

It is important to take pre-emptive measures to avoid failing final testing. Incorporating pre-compliance tests through a projects full development cycle, greatly reduces the chance of your equipment failing at the final (and very expensive) hurdle.

We provide a range of pre-compliance testing services, and have a suite of in-house equipment that can be used to test your product (including automated vibration test rig, temperature controlled test oven, thermal imaging capture, ESD equipment, spectrum analysers and other RF instrumentation).

We also work closely with EMC laboratories to devise suitable pre-compliance test days for products (usually 1-2 days testing), where a suite of RF emissions, RF immunity, voltage transients, ESD etc. tests can be undertaken.

Pre-compliance testing also allows selective testing beyond the parameters and methods as defined by Standards, to efficiently test the equipment in extended operating conditions.

Why incorporate Pre-Compliance Testing into your project?

  • Allows for early identification of errors and issues, and thus speeds up project lifecycle.
  • Testing can be undertaken to compliance standards, from the early stages of a project.
  • Design changes can be incorporated based on real test data and feedback.
  • It reduces the risk of failing final testing and certification.
  • Reduces high costs and time project resources for re-design work and re-testing
  • Creates an agile project cycle where testing and feedback is fully integrated into development

Testing and Accreditation

With pre-compliance testing complete, all known hardware issues resolved, software at release (or advanced BETA level), and product design ‘locked in’ (including enclosure design and mechanics all finalised), it is time to commence final testing!

We strongly advise clients to ensure that they are ‘release ready’ before commencing with final EMC, Safety and/or Environmental testing, as any changes to a design (even if the equipment has successfully been through a full suite of tests) could result in the equipment having to be re-tested.

We work with a range of UKAS accredited test laboratories to determine a full suite of tests to certify your product complies with relevant standard and regulatory requirements.

We always attend testing where possible, as we find keeping a ‘hands on’ approach at this stage of testing ensures things keep on track and on schedule.

Once testing is successfully complete, the laboratories will provide test reports and certification.

All compliance documentation and certification is then compiled into a Technical File to display the product properly complies with the required standards and regulatory requirements.

A Declaration of Conformity is then raised, from which the CE (or applicable) Mark can be issued, and your product can be placed on the market.

The Technical File will typically include:

  • Technical description and drawings, circuit diagrams, design calculations and photos.
  • Report/List of applicable standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Bill of materials (BOM).
  • Specification and, where applicable, Declarations of Conformity for the critical components and materials used (e.g. for RoHS compliance).
  • Test reports and/or assessments.
  • Instructions and packaging information/documentation.
  • Copy of the Declaration of Conformity.
  • Must be held for a period of up to 10 years after the manufacture of the last unit.

Technical Analysis

We work with you to define and establish a clear set of product features and functions.

We then work with you to establish the key market differentiators for your product.

We then narrow down the functionality and differentiators of your project, determining key deliverables vs ‘value added’ functions and features.

This leads to us establishing a technical specification for your project, where we determine the core technologies, components and hardware required to successfully design and develop your product.

This specification also includes a review of the hardware and software design approach, and consideration of other key factors requiring careful consideration (power consumption, size & weight, mechanical construction, environmental tolerance, safety, immunity & EMC compliance requirements etc.)

We utilise our 40+ years of electronic engineering and product development expertise to determine and devise a suitable technical specification and key deliverables for your new project.

Feasibility Report Includes

  • Determine key product requirements and establish ‘value added’ features.
  • Determine core technology, component and hardware requirements.
  • Research and evaluate competitor products (where necessary).
  • Plan for design scalability and ‘future proofing’/risk mitigation of component selection and design approach.
  • Review and evaluate hardware and software design approaches.
  • Review and advise on general product and mechanical design requirements.
  • Identify compliance requirements and applicable standards.

Design + Development Timeline Estimate

Electronic design is complicated, multifaceted and time consuming.

Projects typically require hardware, software, product and mechanical design resources all collaborating successfully to develop an initial idea into to a commercially viable product.

Breaking a project down into work phases and hard (required by statutory standards)/soft design requirements help greatly to devise a project timeline and establish key milestones.

We also review compliance and standards requirements, and use these together with project milestones to determine key risk areas of your development cycle, as overlooking any potential design risk/challenge can lead to significant bottlenecks in a projects development (particularly at latter compliance testing stages).

This work gives you a ‘roadmap’ that can be followed to ensure your project is both on time, on budget, and to also ensure that no work has been overlooked or neglected at any key point in the products development.

We utilise our 40+ years of electronic engineering and product development expertise to help devise a suitable project timeline and key milestones for your new project.

Feasibility Report Includes

  • Determine key project milestones.
  • Establish design and development project phases.
  • Devise ‘Gateway’ design review stages.
  • Determine proposed project timeline.
  • Determine independent project phases and time estimates.
  • Analyse and target key risks in project development timeline.
  • Review compliance/testing requirements and determine time estimates.

Design + Development Cost Estimate

Electronic product development can be expensive and fraught with risk if not undertaken in a systematic manner.

A Feasibility Study can help you prepare and plan your budget to bring a project successfully through to completion.

Utilising the Design and Development timelines established as part of the feasibility report, we use this data, in combination with associated estimate hardware, component and prototyping costs, to establish budget estimates for all phases of the projects design and development (including the final compliance and testing stages, if required for CE marking for example).

This helps you to plan ahead where a higher budget needs to be allocated, or if necessary where compromises/reduction in scope of features may be required to meet a pre-determined project budget, while still delivering a successful product.

Establishing indicative project costs can also be used as a valuable tool if looking to secure additional funding for your project, reassuring investors that important first steps have already been undertaken to establish design and development cost estimates.

Feasibility Report Includes

  • Budget estimate overview in accordance with project plan.
  • Electronics Hardware Software Design and Development cost estimates.
  • Prototype manufacturing cost estimates.
  • Resource (components, hardware, prototyping tools) cost estimates.
  • Compliance cost estimates.
  • Testing and Certification (UKAS where applicable) cost estimates.

Manufacturing Cost Estimate

We have always had manufacturing facilities in-house, and we have great experience (40+ years) in avoiding designing over complicated products that are overly complex to assemble, have overcomplicated component count/BOM requirements, or are non-efficient to test and QA validate.

Using data gained from the Technical Specification and Design and Development cost and time analysis feasibility stages, we can determine estimate production unit costs.

We also use our 40+ tears of manufacturing experience and expertise, and close long lasting ties with component and parts suppliers, to further help determine and refine our production cost estimates.

Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) costs that may also be applicable at the manufacturing stage of a project are also determined at this stage of a Feasibility Study.

With our combined design and manufacturing expertise, we can both provide a production unit cost estimate, and a project plan from the outset to reduce and mitigate unnecessary design choices that may later cause an increase in final unit cost.

Feasibility Report Includes

  • Production Unit cost estimate (Inc. quantity discount estimates).
  • NRE tooling and manufacturing setup cost.
  • Test routine requirements and process analysis.
  • QA validation requirements and process analysis.
  • Packaging cost estimates (Inc. NRE setup costs).
  • Scope for cost reduction (alternative components, parts, hardware etc.)
