Design & Development

A seamless transition from product design and development to manufacturing.

STI set up a Research and Development (R&D) department in 2011 to work with both new and existing customers much earlier in the development cycle for electronics products. 

STI’s R&D team will support you either by initiating a project at the concept stage or through the lifecycle as required, offering the customer a full range of industrial design, hardware, software and mechanical engineering capabilities in collaboration.  

The R&D team also ensures quality and compliance engineering management, supporting you with accreditations and verifications testing to achieve the necessary market approvals.

An electronics solutions partner anywhere along your product development lifecycle.

You want a partner you can trust. STI is focussed on understanding your needs, helping you with engineering challenges and figuring out complex product and manufacturing requirements.

We work in partnership with our customers on the full range of architecture layout and technology choices. 

Our development process integrates everything we do – including production and test engineering input to design, manufacturing and supply chain involvement from the start — to ensure that we deliver the production ready solution you need.

R&D capabilities include:

  • Schematic design
  • PCB Layout
  • System Engineering
  • Industrial and Mechanical Design and Development
  • Hardware and technology development
  • Firmware creation and development
  • Environmental testing, design verification and tooling development
  • Application/System Solutions Design and Development

We have existing platforms in IoT, DC-DC, Camera and Solar solutions to support faster product development times.
