Every project has a unique set of requirements. Many considerations, such as power consumption and environmental tolerances, influence how a system must be built. One solution to meet varied requirements is full custom design. Custom design provides freedom to accommodate even the most particular demands, but also results in higher costs, added production time and greater potential for error. On the other end of the spectrum, standardized production allows for fast and repeatable manufacturing, but limits the ability to meet varied requirements. At EM Research, we’ve developed a platform production model that bridges the gap and offers the flexibility of customization, and the efficiency of standardization, maximizing performance and minimizing cost. Our platform model is one way we deliver greater value. The THOR series synthesizer is one example of a versatile platform that customers have come to depend on across a variety of applications and frequency bands.
Here’s how a more efficient platform manufacturing process can save customers time and money while enhancing quality.
