Hardware Prototyping
Manufacturers & Services

A lot of people and design teams have the ability to conceive of new products, but do not have the physical facilities to fabricate working prototypes. Fortunately, there are plenty of companies out there who are more than ready and capable of doing the physical work for you. They can provide printed circuit boards (PCB), printed circuit assemblies (PCA), custom chassis, entire racks of equipment, or just about anything you can conceive of (and pay for). Material specification can include plastic, metal, fabric, paper, wood, or maybe some exotic material that you have come up with.



My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject. Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks. Your best bet is to use a search engine to find company websites directly. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my Advertising information page.
