Hardware Development

What is hardware development?

Hardware development is the design and development of devices intended to be manufactured. Certus Innovations understands that the process can be incredibly complex as hardware is typically updated as technological advances are made.


Together, we determine the purpose of the product. Once defined, we research every component needed to assess interoperability and start laying the groundwork for design.

Prototype 1 and firmware

After determining the major components, a prototype is built along with the firmware to make those components operate as needed.

Prototype 2 and mechanicals

After that, you need to design your electronics in conjunction with the mechanicals to ensure you have the proper casing around the electronics.

Improvements and Sustainment

We improve prototype 2 and sustain firmware and hardware updates to the product.

Final steps

Work with the customer as described in project development.
