a brief on ..Design & Test

All design takes place in-house, due to the modular nature of many clients requirements this can also involve working closely with their engineering department.

After a specification is agreed a development/project managing Engineer will be appointed to take responsibility for all aspects of the design process.

PCB design is undertaken directly by the development engineer and prototyping is done in RFPA's own facility where automated expose, etch, and roller tining is available.

Small series production staff will work with the development engineer on component choices, sourcing, and kit'ing as well as required production technologies and techniques to be used.

After production units are passed back to the managing Engineer for initial testing and calibration procedures, before finally being passed to the customer for acceptance.
