Bramson Welch helps you turn ideas into successful products. We offer a range of consulting services related to advanced embedded electronics engineering, from hardware and software design, firmware and device driver development, to business planning, research and organizational development for both “start up” and established companies. Our winning designs, implementation experience and smart planning methods will help you realize your product creation goals. Our goal is to work with you to come up with better designs and more informed engineering to make you look good.
Embedded systems power a tremendous number of things in our economy and in our every day lives. Some of these are close enough to standard desktop computers that many consumers recognize them as such – set top boxes for example. However many more are either small or large but most people just don’t see them. Some may be in an everyday object such as a wristwatch, a pedometer, or TV Remote control. Others may be hidden in the wall, underneath the hood of the car, inside our clothing.
Bramson Welch is interested in expanding the role and reach of these embedded systems. If you have a product idea – consumer, industrial, commercial, whatever – and you think or suspect that it needs or could benefit (or be made more inexpensively) with some type of microcontroller – come talk to us.
The beginning of any project is the most critical. Before committing large quantities of time and money in a new product idea, it is useful to first assess the feasibility of the product. We can provide market demand analysis as well as estimated build cost to price point risk analysis.
Design for Manufacturing
We believe a good design takes into account the complexities of manufacturing. Choosing the right components and subsystems involves balancing the need for quick time to market and parts that have long-term availability. The build cost must also meet market-pricing requirements. This process results in a product design that is highly manufacturable.
We know that solid product manufacturing requires good functional testing. Bramson Welch & Assoc. can create custom test software and test fixtures to ensure your product is properly tested on the assembly line. This way errors can be caught at the factory and increase your product yield.
Find the Right Factory
The rise of contract manufacturing has greatly helped new product development. Companies can more quickly develop and innovate without the burden of needing their own factory. Finding the right manufacturer is critical to product success. We can connect you with quality contract manufacturers in the United States and overseas.
Research and Development
We realize that some projects require an initial R&D phase to determine if the technology required for a product is possible. By investigating new technologies and new designs we can help you develop your IP and prototypes for proof-of-concept demonstrations.
