Bootstrapping Hardware Development

Matthew De Remer  (Chief Engineer & Founder, Bayard Design LLC)

Location: Biomed Room 2

Date: Thursday, September 17

Time: 9:30am - 10:15am

Track: Track D: Cementing the Bond Between Design and Manufacturing

Vault Recording: TBD

Innovations in the areas of mechanical, electrical and software prototyping have drastically lowered costs and therefore the barrier to entry for entrepreneurs to develop high performance prototypes. This presentation will examine methods, methodologies, and processes to bootstrap hardware development with lower costs and shorter lead times. We will answer the who, what, where, when, why and how of this new landscape. If you are questioning how to prototype various components, what should the goals be for that prototyping or finally the development process that yields the least risk and shortest timeline then this presentation will be informative for you.

Topics include:

  • An examination of the latest prototyping methods
  • Goals for prototyping various iterations
  • How to construct a development process that yields the least risk and shortest timeline
