Prototype, Integration and Test

horizontal rule

The prototype, integration and test phase is where the previous engineering phases come together.   

The steps:

bulletPrinted circuit boards (PCBs) are fabricated, and assembled
bulletPreliminary hardware test using the lowest level of the firmware, commonly referred to as the hardware I/O layer
bulletHardware verification, Engineering Change Orders(ECOs), Documentation Updates 
bulletIntegration of higher layers of the firmware including  the 'toolkit' layer and 'application' layers
bulletRe-spin PCB layout and fabrication to incorporate ECOs
bulletTest PCBs - which may include preliminary agency (FCC, UL, etc.) testing where warranted

The deliverables:

bulletPrototype assembled PCBs
bulletUpdated Engineering documentation (PCB Artwork, Bill of Materials, Database, etc.)
bulletFirmware source
