Product Development Engineering

Product Development Engineering

With over 150 engineers, Computime’s product development and engineering team combines technical expertise, best practice development methods, and a thorough understanding of our own quality requirements and production methods with a dash of ingenuity for a total package.

Every product we manufacture is subject to a rigorous product development process to ensure we reach production as quickly as possible and that the products represent something that we can proud of, perform reliably, and represent our quality commitment. We strive to employ state-of-the-art technology, quality and manufacturing-led product design to optimize quality and performance whilst providing best in class cost performance. Our modular design process ensures we are attempting to maximize component reuse, and frees up our engineers to focus on the interfaces and novel sections of the design knowing that the more routine modules have been thoroughly tested and scrutinized.

A trusted partner

Over the past 40 years, Computime has established itself as a trusted technology solutions and manufacturing partner. We’ve been focused on providing sophisticated embedded systems since our foundation and have been recognized as a leader in RF solutions for over 20 years. With more than 10 years of experience in networked RF solutions, we were one of the earliest entrants into the IoT market. More recently, we have extended our offering in the Internet of Things (IoT), particularly in the home automation markets.

Offering custom IP, sophisticated R&D, and creative engineering solutions, we work with our customers to understand the pain points their customers experience to develop new technologies that address these problems and, in doing so, add value to products. Our portfolio includes products from battery-free RF sensors to state-of-the-art body-worn police cameras including wirelessly controlled thermostats, e-Health monitors, and efficient mobile payment solutions to name a few.

Case Study: Solving Contradictory Product Requirements

A smart plug is one of the key devices of a smart home. On the one hand, it needs to sustain power requirements and on the other hand, it needs to have small foot print to meet space and aesthetic need. As a result, heat dissipation issues need to be dealt with to come up with a desirable solution. Close cooperation between our mechanical design engineers and power & heat management team resulted in the world smallest smart plug for a 16A / 220V European application.

Case Study: A Smart Solution Driven by Application Need

What is the worst part of installing underfloor heating? Balancing the fluid circuits so that every room can be evenly heated is a tedious task. Our application expert and design engineers created a unique product solution for automatic balancing, solving hours of installation time.

An industry first. Happy installer, happy home owner.
