Planning the Build of Your Custom Computer, Appliance, or Device
You can take advantage of our pre-production engineering and project development support when planning the build of your custom computer, instrument or appliance. The service gathers information on component performance, failure rates and alternative solutions before you commit to a final system build.
With decades of experience, ConRes has already well-established relationships with most component vendors. We leverage these relationships to obtain additional technical support for you. Component vendors may also provide samples, allowing ConRes to offer you special pricing on developmental systems.
Working closely with ConRes during the early development phase leverages the OEM and Embedded Computing Group’s engineering knowledge and experience. This establishes a good working relationship which results in a solid business foundation upon which the rest of the value-added services are built.
The ConRes OEM team works closely with you to plan the build of your custom computer-based product. This process includes planning for:
Product hardware including:
- System size, slot requirements, housing/mounting issues
