1- Electronic Architecture Cost (System Design)
You or your design partner must decide which key electronic components will best meet the performance requirements of the device.
For the electronics architecture costs, we advise you to budget an average of US$5,000.
In the B2B projects we do at Titoma, Time To Market is often more critical than aesthetics, so our typical industrial design budget is US$5,000.
The NRE cost in embedded systems could be somewhere between US$500,000 to US$1 Million.
Here at TITOMA, we focus on embedded electronics, and our typical NRE fee for Mechanical Design ranges from US$10,000 to US$15,000.
This is directly proportional to the complexity of your device; the more complicated it is, the more lines of codes will require, and indeed, more debugging will have to be done.
At TITOMA, our average NRE fee for firmware development for embedded systems around stm32 is USD15,000.
On average, an electronic prototype can cost between US$100 to US$100,000.
It is a big range; the exact cost will vary not just depending on the complexity of the device but also on which kind of prototype you’re looking at developing.
We have to consider the NRE fee of setting up a production line for an embedded system or a consumer device.
Injection mold tooling can easily be the most expensive part of any electronic product development process.
It ranges from US$250,000 to US$1 million.
Depending on your device and its requirements, some tests could be but are not limited to
Getting a certification is usually very time-consuming.
From experience, we can tell you that you need to budget at least US$20,000 for certifications.
