May 24, 2016: Every aspect of developing connected products is getting faster and faster, thanks not only to services like DevicePilot but also to hardware services which allow the physical product itself to be rapidly prototyped. This month we put the spotlight on Circuit Hub, which helps companies to quickly iterate their physical product to reach volumes of 1-10k.
CircuitHub provides a turn-key web-site where a company can upload the heart of their new product - the printed-circuit board - along with its Bill of Materials, receive an instant quote, and then get it made at the push of a button. Turnaround times can be as short as 10 days.
As CEO Andrew Seddon says "I started CircuitHub because as an engineer I was frustrated by the divide between the people who wanted to get stuff manufactured, the engineers, and the people who can actually manufacture things, the factory. " Today CircuitHub specializes in full-turnkey manufacturing, abstracting the entire circuit board production process from logistics to factory operations into an easy to use, web interface, providing instant quotes from 1 to 10,000 units as well as fast turnaround times and better costs. "The vast majority of the products we make for our customers today are connected products " says Andrew, "so the Internet of Things is a phenomenon which is helping to drive our business, and in turn we believe we are helping to drive the Internet of Things".
"CircuitHub is a great example of the kind of service which makes you wonder why it wasn't always done that way" says DevicePilot CEO Pilgrim Beart.. "The sooner you get physical product into the hands of early users, the sooner you de-risk your technology and proposition, and then you're ready to scale-up - which is where services like DevicePilot truly come into their own".
