Wearable Device Design, Development & Manufacturing

Phideas wearable design, development and manufacturing services covers the full product development lifecycle from concept to production and support through component selection, schematics, costing, simulation, mockup design, prototyping, validation, production and support. Our product development lifecycle is compliant with CTA and CCC standards to ensure regulatory, quality and commercial requirements.

System integration in the architecture, minimum costs for software and electronics and maximum flexibility combined with a smooth development process are critical elements. Our electronics design experience essentially covers small, compact, light weight and high performance wearables such as smartwatches or smartbands for real-time applications.

Our Approach

From day one we ensure a full understanding of the products’ purpose and operating environment. We produce an early design concept and top level architecture to frame the development work through a total system engineering approach. To identify potential issues early and give confidence in both architecture and performance we use modelling and simulation.

Optimum Technology Selection

Phideas continuously evaluates the latest mobile and wearable technologies and keeps abreast of advances in design methodologies and tools. For each project we evaluate the leading edge technologies alongside the more standardised proven components and processes. We make sure the most adequate technology choices are made to support the product function, performance, reliability and cost requirements. Our expert knowledge in electronics design delivers exceptional results in demanding applications often with highly restrictive space and power requirements.
