Logical’s Design Process

The Logical Company utilizes the latest tools and technologies to make our design process efficient and effective. We follow ISO-9001:2008 standards to ensure control and continual improvement of our products and processes.

Planning

The planning stage is a critical component to the success of development projects. We perform an assessment of technical feasibility, identify design inputs and resources and provide our customers a design service estimate. We capture all the product requirements on a data sheet and provide for customer review and acceptance prior to development.

Design Process

Development

The development stage begins after customer acceptance of the data sheet and all requirements have been properly defined and agreed upon. Our engineers get to work designing a prototype which includes PCB hardware, FPGA design and any software or mechanical assemblies needed in the design. Our technical writers work closely with the engineers to create user manuals, reference guides and internal test instructions.

Verification, Validation and Release

Our designs go through a stringent verification and validation process to ensure a quality product to our customers. We develop internal diagnostics for each design and also utilize boundary-scan with JTAG software to identify manufacturing defects and perform functional testing on critical components. We validate our products either at our factory or in the customer’s application to ensure the prototype meets all the customer’s requirements.
