How to Improve Time-to-Market with “MCOTS” Systems
Press Office, VersaLogic Corporation, 08/25/20
As you scan the VersaLogic product portfolio looking for a fit for an application, try a different perspective. Start with a board that’s close to your requirements and plan to have it modified. This is a great way to get a jump on your competition. Here are some of the advantages…
By using an existing off-the-shelf product to test and develop your application, you can save many months of delay. This type of immediate development allows projects to progress with very low risk and expense. The development hardware may not completely fit the bill for the application, but it will allow the additions and modification to be completely understood for the final product. Both hardware and software modifications are available.
Developing a custom product to support your application is a lengthy and expensive proposition. This is especially true with modern high-speed processors. Designing an embedded processor board has numerous challenges. The ultimate project killer is to invest 12+ months into a custom design, only to have it not function properly. The budget is spent and the project timeline is shot. It’s a big gamble.
Eliminating both the up-front time and cost is where MCOTS products come in. Using existing products and expert modification gives you a solution without the time and budget risk. VersaLogic offers MCOTs products in quantities as low as 100 pieces, with turnaround in 30-60 days.
