As a system design company, DELTATEC often takes the product packaging in charge, either using standard parts or building a custom solution. When a project calls for this service, the technology is selected on the basis of technical requirements and cost objectives.
For embedded systems, mechanics play an important role in the respect of environmental requirements, typically thermal, EMC, vibration and humidity. Aesthetical aspects are outsourced to partners specialised in this field.
DELTATEC also regularly designs complex mechanical parts in the scope of its activity in the space market, such as enclosures for on-board computers and mechanical supports for on-board cameras. Thermal dissipation and compliance with vibration requirements are usually the main challenges for those designs.
A project with mechanics includes much more than the design of mechanical parts. A lot of simulations, sometimes very complex, have to be performed before designing. Prototype validation is also an important step of the process, through specific tests: EMC, vibration, thermal…
