Design Reviews

One of the best ways to lower your design risk and cost is by getting an independent design review.

Whether you are doing the design yourself, or outsourcing it to a developer, getting a 3rd-party design review is always the smart thing to do. It's much easer and cheaper to catch design issues earlier, ideally before you pay for prototypes. 

We offer three types of design reviews including: schematic circuit diagram, PCB layout design, and 3D model. You can purchase these reviews separately or purchase bundle packs to save money.

We follow an in-depth checklist (see below) for all design reviews so you know you are getting a thorough review of your design. Design reviews take up to one week to complete.
