Design & Engineering Services—the DFI Tech Difference Starts Here

dfi-manufacturing Our customer’s success begins with the right design and engineering team whether bringing a new product to market or re-launching an existing product with new features.   DFI Tech’s engineering team sits with and is integrated with our manufacturing team to ensure that products are designed for manufacturability, sustainability, and profitability.

Our design and engineering teams add value throughout the product lifecycle.

During conceptualization, not only do we capture the customer’s requirements, we also consider the product environment, functionality, compatibility, performance, stability and reliability and make sure that all of it is represented and laid out accordingly in the design.  Once created, the schematics are closely reviewed by our senior engineers and cross-referenced with our extensive common-parts database to ensure correctness and manufacturability.  Our goal is to provide great design with the most readily available components that can be obtained in large quantities and at the greatest cost savings.

During prototyping and the subsequent validation phases, we rigorously test the product sample to ensure that it meets the requirements set out during conceptualization.  This process includes but is not limited to signal integrity tests, extended functional and thermal tests, thermal shock, shock and vibration, compatibility, EMI, and ESD.  All of it is performed in-house, so feedback is immediate and any necessary design changes happen right away.  We understand that design engineering is critical to the overall success of your project.

Our value-added engineering services reduce unit cost for both manufacturing AND service/support, while accelerating time to market for your products.
