PIEP to Custom Board Design
Here is a scenario. Let's say you use PIEP to prototype your product/solution; but, for whatever reason (form factor, price, quantity) you do not plan to ship your product with PIEP. E3 can take your prototype and develop a single board for your production runs (and the single boards will function using the same components & code you used for the prototype).
Here are the high-level phases of our custom design process.
Port to PIEP - Evalutation Kits
Do you produce electronic components? What hardware solution do you use to demonstrate your product(s) to customers and potential customers? Is it processor independent? How powerful would it be to be able to ship evaluation kits, highlighting your product, with multiple processors?
PIEP (especially PIEP Mini) might be your answer. E3 can port your product(s) to PIEP. To do that, we will put your product(s) (depending on size) on a PIEP peripheral board and marry that board with one or more PIEP Mini processors. You will then have very small but powerful evaluation kits that you can give or sell to your customers. Beyond that, we (E3) may be able to offer your product(s) on one of our peripherals to our customers. The Port to PIEP process involves many of the same phases listed above.
