Elecrow is specialized in open hardware industry for several years. We’re experienced in Arduino and Raspberry Pi related module design. Elecrow has developed different kinds of functional modules, such as microcontroller, shield, communication, sensor. Some customers have ideas to build a new hardware, but they didn’t know much about hardware fabrication. So Elecrow launched ODM service( Arduino&Raspberry Pi related projects) to meet that unique requirement.

1. Requirement Confirmation
Here is how Elecrow ODM service works:
At the very first beginning, Elecrow engineers need to know your specific requirement. What’s the size of your PCB, what function do you want, do you have designated chip. If we don’t reach an agreement of your final demand, we can continue to discuss on email, skype, online meeting and so on.
After we confirm your requirement, we will evaluate the project, measure the design period and calculate the cost. The quotation will include two part, design labor cost and sample manufacturing cost. What’s important, if your following batch order amount reach to certain value, we can refund the design cost.
3. Schematic Diagram
A poor schematic only creates confusion. While a well-drawn schematic makes functions clear. After data preparation and library creation process, Elecrow engineer will complete the schematic carefully on the basis of the function, chips, peripheral circuit, chip package, pin and the interaction between them.
4. PCB Layout
Our PCB layout specialist need to spend much time with you to consult all aspects of the circuit, system design, mechanical and environmental requirements, bare board manufacturing requirements plus assembly and test requirements. We will consider it all to make sure that the design intend is delivered accurately.
5. PCB Manufacturing
Elecrow is famous for PCB manufacturing service. So, the following step would be very easy. We will go through these process “bare PCB manufacturing
→ components sourcing→ PCB assembly
” It takes one week to produce the samples.
After we complete the samples, we will test the boards. If there is programmable IC in the boards, we upload the programming to test if the board goes well. If something goes wrong, Elecrow will carry out performance analysis, error checking and troubleshooting.
Elecrow deliver worldwide. Regularly, the samples will be shipped with Shenzhen DHL.
