In the current day scenario, where everything is going small and digital, popular brands are now producing more reliable small form factor design / light-weight and compact hardware design with an aim to make people’s lives easier. A small form factor design or small footprint design can also serve as a standard or category that can be used to ensure that there is a level of hardware compatibility between devices of similar types, even though they may come from different manufacturers. Small Form factor design or small footprint design refers to the overall design and functionality of an electronic hardware. With the ongoing trend towards compact and light-weight hardware design, there is need for small footprint design or compact product design with densely pack electronics so that they occupy minimum real estate while providing maximum functionality. Compact Product Design or small form factor design for a hardware predominantly depends on the size, application and footprint of the components that go into the hardware.
Small Form Factor Design and Compact Product Design
Mistral’s embedded hardware design and development team offers custom electronic design services and compact hardware design services for next-gen embedded electronics devices. Our expert team of engineers look at building small yet powerful and feature rich systems overcoming significant challenges in small form factor design and compact product design like signal integrity, thermal integrity, power management, battery management and memory optimization. Our team has the expertise and experience in designing energy efficient, compact, small footprint design with a variety of I/Os, sensors, interfaces and wide operating temperature range to meet the needs of medical, consumer and industrial customers. Form factor design indicates the shape and size specifications of any hardware. Light-weight Hardware Design and compact form factor design also address other specification such as the mechanical casing, power supply, and overall physical layout.
The size and shape of the components in these Small footprint Design or Light-weight Hardware Design are influenced by the connections and power specifications. The advent of feature-rich, multi-core SoCs with PoP technology and graphic accelerators have furthered this cause making it feasible for product designers to build small form factor design, light-weight hardware design and compact product design for the next generation of portable and wearable applications.
