How It Works

Below is a step by step guide for an electronic product design and development.

  1. Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is signed between us and the client.
  2. The client provides us with the product concept or idea. Face to face meeting may be required at this step to discuss the product concept, budget, manufacturing, packaging, agency compliance and many more . At this point a design project is created.
  3. DigiZap divides the project into milestones. Each milestone has its own lead time, priority and cost. The cost of each milestone is FIXED and depends on the complexity and the materials required to accomplish the milestone. At this step, a project Quote is created and sent to the client.
  4. DigiZap appoints a single design manager to handle the project and to stay with the client throughout the design and production stages.
  5. The design and development stage start at this step. Upon completion of each milestone, a functional prototype (if applicable) is built and sent to the client for approval.
  6. After completing all the project milestones, two full functional product prototypes are built, one will be sent to the client for evaluation and the second will stay with us.
  7. The product prototype is evaluated by the client and us for functionality, appearance, build-cost and possible enhancements.
  8. Any necessary changes or enhancements are made at this step.
  9. Once the prototype passes all necessary tests and approved by the client, the final project documentation starts at this step. The documentation includes, PCB schematics, PCB layout, Gerber files, mechanical drawings, bill of material, assembly instructions, test procedures ...
  10. Depending on the product nature and market, an agency compliance (CE, UL, FCC, FDA..) may be required.
  11. Product is released to production.

Case Studies

Kurt J. Lesker Company (PA ,USA) contracted DigiZap Solutions to develop and design a compact Control & Monitor system for their new family of  Thin Film Deposition Systems.

Kurt J. Lesker, a premier manufacturer of thin film deposition systems and vacuum products, contracted DigiZap Solutions to Develop, Design and Produce a compact, low cost and easy to integrate Control/Monitor system for their new line of products and to upgrade the existing products. The project was very complex and required strong experience in hardware design, embedded control, RF noise, temperature control and high power supplies. DigiZap engineers divided the project into multiple stages, each stage has its own priority, lead-time and budget. After multiple face to face meeting with KJLC engineers and many hours on the phone, DigiZap engineers started the design stage and three months later, a complete prototype was shipped to KJLC engineers. After few months of intensive testing and quality control by KJLC engineers, the design was released to production. KJLC contracted DigiZap again to fully produce and test the system different components and boards. Hundred of boards are already shipped to KJLC.

The Control System include:

  • TCP/IP ModBus interface
  • 8 Isolated Thermpcouples Temperature control
  • 8 Isolated 16-bit Analog To Digital channels
  • 8 Isolated 16-bit Digital To Analog channels
  • 24 Isolated Discrete outputs with current limit and short circuit protection
  • 20 Isolated Discrete inputs
  • 8 Isolated Liquid Flow monitors
  • 2 Isolated Load current monitors
  • 4 Isolated Crystal drivers.
  • DC and AC Main Power monitor and protection

Contour Light, LLC (CA, USA),  contracted DigiZap Solutions to develop and design their new non-invasive body contouring devices

ContourLight-pic1

Contour Light, a premier manufacturer of non-invasive red light body contouring devices, contracted DigiZap to develop and design a new family of red light body contouring devices which include a red light pads and a controller case. DigiZap takes the project from start to finish and design the controller and pads hardware, embedded GUI, and firmware. The touch screen user interface is achieved using DigiZap 5.7" VGA TFT display with touch screen module powered by SegeNT (embedded GUI engine). The project was accomplished in 8 weeks and contour light was able to take their idea to market in less than 12 weeks. The production is divided between Contour Light and DigiZap, pads and other accessories are made by Contour Light while the controller boards and touch screen are made by DigiZap.

"I feel very fortunate to have found DigiZap. Using this company to design our device has saved us countless hours and dollars in development time and pre-production costs. Their advanced touch screen technology is both economical and compact, allowing us to build a smaller footprint unit while keeping cost of goods in control.  The ideas they have offered were extremely insightful and improved our existing design in many respects.  I plan to use DigiZap for my next product and would recommend them to any company seeking a design/engineering firm... except my competition!"

Incisive, Inc (CA, USA),  turns to DigiZap Embedded GUI Solutions for their new dental laser devices

Incisive, a premier manufacturer of medical laser devices, uses DigiZap Embedded GUI Controller board for their new dental laser diode with 5.7" VGA Color Touch surface. DigiZap provides Incisive engineers with all the assistance they need to add the user interface to their devices. They were able to put the new product in the market in a very short time and hundreds are already sold to customers all over the world.

"It was a pleasure to work with DigiZap when upgrading the user interface on a medical laser. Using SegeNT and a simple interface board allowed us to replace a pushbutton and LED control panel with a high quality VGA touchscreen, without changing other hardware in the instrument. The development went quickly, DigiZap support was excellent. Production cost of this solution was lowest of all other options evaluated, while users have commented that the new interface appears very expensive"
