Techsol’s Production Services: Manufacturing

By: Medallion System  09-12-2011

Techsol offers a variety of manufacturing options, which can be tailored to meet your needs.

If we are doing your manufacturing then we also provide production support, such as locating/sourcing alternate parts when a component becomes obsolete or becomes unavailable due to supply shortages, for free!

In-house Manufacturing Services

Techsol has a state-of-the-art, precision, low-volume, SMT production line.
Featuring camera vision and laser-alignment technologies, it can place fine-pitch BGAs as well as tiny passive devices.
This line is intended to speed prototype development for custom designs, as well as supporting pilot runs or other low-volume production.

NAFTA Manufacturing Services

Techsol has also established relationships with other Contract Manufacturers (CMs) with higher-volume SMT production lines.
Ever since the introduction of NAFTA, products can be moved between Canada, the USA, and Mexico without duties.
The Mexican shops offer lower labour costs without language or time zone challenges.
This option is intended for mid-volume runs for items with higher labour content.

Overseas Manufacturing Services

Techsol has also established relationships with off-shore production houses.
Time zones, languages, law, and shipping add to the cost of production.
This option is intended for high-volume products with higher labour content.
We rarely excercise this option because we design for low-labour production.
However, this option makes sense for portable computers, such as a laptop, where the labour content is quite high.

Techsol Services: Custom Design

In a typical development process, after we nail down the requirements, we generate specs, and then build a big, 2-layer board with all the peripherals, and power it with a Medallion CPU module. A custom design is a single board that includes the circuitry of a Medallion CPU module plus the custom I/O and power-supply circuits. After we have proven the peripheral technology, we will condense the design to a single-board solution.

Techsol Services: Semi-Custom Design

This isn't a path that we force you to take, but rather it is only a suggested method for going from prototype to production with the smallest incremental cash outlay. It can be ordered with the chosen Medallion CPU Module mounted and tested as a complete unit, to further streamline your final assembly. There are various approaches which can be utilized to ease the cost of migration from concept to volume production.
