Product Assessment

Our assessment services seek to align your strategic vision with a clear technology design path to achieve your product goals effectively and efficiently. The assessment phase outcomes and deliverables we provide include effective communication at both the engineering and executive level. This allows your company’s marketing and business goals to align with the engineering effort early and throughout the development project.

PCB & Hardware Design

We have been doing advanced Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design since 2002 – That vast experience at the initial PCB layout and hardware design stage can reduce industry compliance testing issues later on. Custom PCB and hardware design are our core competency at DE Design Works, whether for rugged industrial environments, medical embedded products, or reliable military applications to keep our service members safe – our experience saves your project time and NRE.

Software & Firmware Design

Embedded software and firmware development have been a core competency of DE Design Works for over 20 years. DE has developed a deep understanding of product intricacies and needs across multiple market segments. This expanse of project experiences in collaboration with your product team, helps you achieve your project goals efficiently. We specialize in developing embedded applications, firmware, middleware, device drivers, and human-machine interfaces (HMIs), as well as building complex embedded software solutions for commercial-grade IoT systems.


We offer turn-key product prototyping at multiple stages in the product development process. We are skilled at producing POC prototypes, form-fit-function prototypes, and pilot-run prototypes. When it comes to PCBA prototypes, DE accelerates your time to market by building prototype circuit board assemblies in-house. Our skilled technicians’ hand-build prototypes in days instead of weeks, so we can cut valuable time out of the schedule instead of waiting for PCB assembly houses.


At key points in the development process, our test engineers can test for conditions that will save you time and money during your design verification and certification processes. With our knowledge and experience in systems and PCB design for products that meet medical, military, and industrial standards, we help de-risk your product launch. Supporting your engineering efforts with our in-house testing capabilities can help shorten your product development timeline.

Transfer to Production

DE Design Works is a Napkin Sketch to Production services partner for several of our customers. We can recommend qualified contract manufacturers from our network of CM experiences. Then manage the design for manufacturing (DFM) and pilot run phase while finalizing production testing plans. As the architects of the electronics system, DE is also in the best position to create test fixtures for QA at your chosen contract manufacturer. Additionally, DE can provide a turn-key solution for low-volume, complex box-build projects.
