By working with our customers at the design level, Gowanda Electronics is able to help accelerate product development cycles AND enhance product design and performance. For application-specific products, Gowanda strives to provide a rapid design and development of custom components, to address customer needs for reliability, differentiation and faster time to market. Gowanda’s custom designs respond to the need for components which can do more than what is offered by off-the-shelf products. For standard product introductions, we continually bring new product offerings to the market which are aligned with the latest technological developments in the targeted sector.

New product introduction normally entails but is not limited to the following component development cycle:

  1. Identify Parameters/Specifications
  2. Initiate Design Phase
  3. Activate Development Phase
  4. Testing/Qualification
  5. Manufacturing Processes
  6. Compliance and Certification

Gowanda’s extensive engineering experience, technical competency and industry relationships give us the necessary foundation to navigate through your component development cycle quickly. Well-informed decisions on the most appropriate configuration, the best materials, the critical electrical requirements, and the ease of manufacturability are key elements considered int he design and development phases for a component’s application.

Analytical tools such as FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis) are often incorporated for critical-application products within Military/Aerospace, Space and Medical markets. When appropriate, Gowanda will create Qualification Test Plans, perform the actual environmental tests in our in-house test lab, and document the results via test reports, in a minimal amount of lead time. Compliance and certification become part of the process once a design is finalized and qualified to its application.

By including Gowanda’s engineering department as a “virtual” member of your development team, you can take advantage of our more than 50 years of design and manufacturing experience AND free up your own engineers to focus on other pressing issues.
