After the project for a new electronic product has been finalized, a complex job involving many different tasks begins in order to achieve the final product.
After the project for a new electronic product has been finalized, a complex job involving many different tasks begins in order to achieve the final product. Device hardware and software architecture, as well as mechanical design – optical design when displays are involved – is refined through several design reviews using state-of-the-art simulation and modeling tools. PCB layout simulations are created to establish signal integrity. Functional algorithms and logics are developed according to the model based design concept and tested by the latest test methods (unit test, black box test) to ensure the utmost reliability of the software as well as compliance with Automotive SPICE. Optical and aesthetic components are simulated using specific tools to ensure that required parameters – such as chromatic coordinates and luminous intensity – are met. The tooling required to manufacture mechanical parts is built after accurate mold flow, FEM and heat transfer analyses. Proto types undergo severe environmental and electromagnetic compatibility testing at the in-house lab to guarantee long-term reliability up to automotive industry standards. After passing these tests, the device flows into production, where stringent test methods (optical inspection, in-circuit test, 100% functional testing) are adopted with the aim to achieve a zero-defect rate on delivered products. In addition to product reliability, MTA offers the latest technologies coming up in the electronics industry at an ever-increasing pace. This is why top performance 16/32-bit CPUs and multi-core systems are at the core of our devices, and such software platforms as Autosar, Qnx and Linux are adopted for guaranteed portability, flexibility and scalability of applications
