Begin your journey into the IoT,
with a proven process
Whether you’re after confirmation before mass-production, or wanting to test a business IoT solution,
our iterative methodology has helped businesses across all industries.
Discovery & Requirements
We’ll analyze your targeted cost per unit, environmental conditions & restraints, to define its SWaP (Size, Weight & Power), alongside other technical & physical requirements. With a clear scope of your device’s operational needs, we can efficiently plan proof-of-concept prototypes, further bolstering them via a robust tech stack architecture that is optimized to your business.
PCB Design & BOM
Once we’ve determined what we are going to build together, we need to look at how we are going to build it. From the very beginning of the iterative process, your bill of materials needs to be optimized for budget & business, while we use these parameters to efficiently design the internal hardware.
- Microchip / Atmel
- Freescale / NXP
- Silicon Labs
- Spansion / Fujitsu
For some products, industrial design is a cornerstone of their go-to-market strategy. Robust, workable prototypes are always our aim, with functionality being key - but aestheticism can sometimes be a significant part of the process. We’ll determine whether industrial design is a key part of your prototyping development, then incorporate it into your overall strategy if required.
The thing about hardware design - it’s hard, but not for us
Prototype Production & Delivery
Now that your vision has been clearly drawn into an IoT blueprint, we can begin iterative hardware production. From the very first version, we’ll extensively test every key parameter, then improve them for the next iteration. North American & European labs are used, with production that exceeds 1,000 units being reinforced by Canadian & Chinese assembly lines.
- ARM Cortex-M/Cortex-A
- Renesas RXv1/RXv2
- ColdFire v2
Firmware Development & Support
Alongside any IoT product, a comprehensive firmware strategy is as important as any hardware or market aspect. We’ll define, write, then test an optimal one for your prototype, outlining appropriate technologies & testing phases throughout all iterations. By involving firmware from the beginning of your IoT strategy, you ensure efficient scalability.
- C, C++
- Custom RTOS, Free RTOS
Beyond your iterative prototype, it’s likely that your product will require more than
just the hardware itself:
An advantage of choosing Reinvently to handle your hardware’s design & prototyping, is that we’ve also been an established App Design agency since 2010. Innovative IoT products are useless if they don’t launch with an equally solid app in correspondence, so if needed, we’ll help you design the perfect accompaniment to your hardware.
- Google Home
- Amazon Alexa
Data Analysis & Machine Learning
IoT devices can generate enormous amounts of data, but determining its usage is a lot more complicated. We can build a comprehensive cloud infrastructure for the transmission of your product’s data, including encryption & storage. By implementing machine & deep learning algorithms, your product strategy can capitalize from your product’s data.
AWS IoT Capabilities
The state of all your IoT devices can easily be managed & viewed via AWS’ IoT services. Being an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, we’re not ignorant of the vast business applications it enables. From trials through to millions of users, backend IoT solutions are ever present, allowing you to gain & use knowledge no matter where your device fleet is located. So, if you’re still building your IoT strategy, it’s worth checking out.
