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.
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.
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, and do you have a designated chip. If we don’t reach an agreement of your final demand, we can continue to discuss via email, skype, online meetings,s 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 reaches a 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 the data preparation and library creation process, the 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 needs 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 intent 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 processes “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.
