Product Development

Every job is different. Sometimes clients need help with design of one specific part of a new product; sometimes they need a complete turnkey solution, with support from concept ideation to final release. 

MDD PROVIDES:

concept discovery / analysis support

proof of concept prototyping and testing

electronics hardware and software design

electromechanical design

manufacturing documentation

contract manufacturer support

product documentation creation (manuals, user guides, etc.)

DIALBRIGHT LIGHTBULB

DIALBRIGHT LIGHTBULB

Our Client had a cool idea for an adjustable LED light bulb with features that allowed the user to adjust brightness, beam direction, and even position in the fixture, potentially replacing a range of conventional light bulbs. MDD created a set of working prototypes that demonstrated all these features. They were beautiful, operational, and used the technology planned for the production design.

TEST FIXTURE

TEST FIXTURE

We love developing programming/test fixtures for electronics - we collaborated on this one with our friends at MakeDeck. This fixture performs a basic electrical integrity check, programs the target, and then checks its functions. IoT connection supports automatic test result logging as well as process updates.

CAD-based rapid manufacturing technologies have revolutionized the way these test fixtures are built and deployed. In this case, we designed and built some units for immediate use and then sent the design file set to our Client’s CM factories in Asia so they could make more as needed. Once the design is complete the individual fixtures are economical and easy to duplicate.
