ELECTRONIC PARTNERS LIMITED – FAQ Sheet

Q. Is Electronic Partners the best company to develop my product?
A. We offer competitive and specialist hardware design in Altium; embedded software design; and management of associated tasks. We do small volume manufacture and provide support for manufacture in China. Other tasks can be outsourced through our network or managed by you. Why not talk to us about your idea? We give a one hour free consultation to discuss your requirements.

Q. I have a new product idea that I want to protect. How much should I tell you?
A. Once both parties have signed a non-disclosure agreement, you should feel free to tell us everything you can about your idea.  With our mutual interests protected, the more you can tell us the better we can help translate your idea into a truly state-of-the-art product.

Q. I need to know the expenses upfront. How much is it going to cost?
A. We understand why costs are important to you and appreciate it’s essential to keep you appraised as to costs every step of the way.  Equally we understand that competitive products using new technologies have an inherent risk of changing and evolving during development. Finessing a product to your needs, finding unique solutions and ironing out bugs take time and materials.  After a free consultation to evaluate your project, we will provide you with an estimate.  However if you prefer a more precise costing, you will need to order a research report from us so we can set pricing around the unknown contingencies.
Q. I need the product for marketing by a certain date. Will it be ready?
A. The short answer is yes.  The long answer is that there are a number of factors to be considered and variations to specifications, along with compliance requirements can move delivery times substantially.

  • Our quote / estimate will detail how much time is estimated to complete the project milestones.  We will discuss compliance requirements with you in detail, but it is important to note that after a project is finished by us, it may need to be submitted to the Standards Testing Laboratories.  In our experience, testing takes anywhere between one and six months, and can incur significant costs.
  • Our estimated timeframe for development is based on the project start date, so this will change if your project is delayed.  We will of course confirm our revised timeframe prior to commencement and do everything in our power to meet your deadlines.
