How This Fits Into IoT 
  • Often times first iterations of IoT devices are based upon off the shelf prototyping equipment. While obviously there is nothing wrong with this, as IoT matures, there has been an increased need for practitioners to further understand what it means to execute on high scalability dreams.
  • Building for quantities at scale may necessitate volume hardware costs in order to make the business model work. Of course when you’re building hardware as opposed to software you get into serious questions relating to reliability, scalability, and supportability.

What Attendees Do 
  • We will walk you through a series of mini presentations to understand critical aspects of hardware product development so you can build an actionable plan as you walk out the door.

Learning Objectives 
  • This series is for those who are business or software focused, those who perhaps have not had as much exposure to electronic design for manufacturing, and of course those who are in electronic design for manufacturing but would like to review fundamentals to up their game.
  • Our objective through this course is to put you in a position to develop customized hardware that is scalable and reliable by creating an action plan for success.

What We Cover:
  • Business 101
  • Staffing and Equipment
  • Requirements Development and Technical Specification
  • Component Management
  • Assembly and Test
  • Inventory and Logistics
  • Packaging, Support, and Repair
In addition to the presentation, there will be a series of questions and checklists which include fill in the blanks to help you apply this directly to what you are building.  By the time you complete these 6 to 8 sections, you walk out with an actionable hardware development plan.

What Attendees Bring 
  • Bring Yourselves - we are going to provide workbooks as well as a special high-tech charging pad notebook to help you in the note taking process.

Knowledge Required 
  • Basic project management understanding. This is targeted toward product managers and software developers with limited yet aspirational hardware experience. Even if you have not prototyped something hardware related before, you are absolutely welcome. Check out our reading material links below, that should be enough to get you geared up to attend.

Pre-Class Setup
If you would like to read these prior to the class this would give you a wonderful background that will make you even more well prepared for the course.



Even if you have not created your first prototype, these articles will help you plan.

What Attendees Receive 
The first 25 attendees to sign up on Sched and to check in at the designated workshop space (see session description) will receive an 8.5x11” Wireless Charging Portfolio with integrated 5000mAh built in power bank for powering the wireless charging pad. Internal pop up USB port for non-wireless charging. Includes replaceable 64 ivory sheet lined notebook; organization panel (card holder, phone/tablet stand, elastic storage); pen loop; interior LED indicator. Output: 5V, 5W, 1A; USB to micro USB included. See included image
