    How long does it take sending the HW to another country ? Also I understand the price gets decided upon design. But then what happens regarding implementation cost ? And how do you deal with mass production from a price perspective mainly? Also if a frequent client, would you have special rates for him/her ?

    How long does it take sending the HW to another country ?
    - Depends what service you use: standard mail (cheapest), FEDEX (more expensive), UPS, DHL (expensive), ... Our packages are usually delivered between 1 day to 3 weeks (again, depends where you are sending it and what service you use).

    Also I understand the price gets decided upon design. But then what happens regarding implementation cost ? And how do you deal with mass production from a price perspective mainly? Also if a frequent client, would you have special rates for him/her ?
    - I am not sure what you mean. Could you provide more details about your question?

      Hi Robert,

      So let's assume we have discussed some requirements and accordingly the board design costs X$. Now each time I need to buy that board, the design cost is included or is the design cost only payed once while designing stage and I only pay afterwards for the board implementation/HW.
      So for example, the board cost X$; 0.4X$ for design and 0.6$ for the implementation.
      Now if a week later I needed 10 PCBs of that same designed board. Do I pay 0.6X * 10 or X$ * 10 ...?

      Note: I am sorry if the question seems primitive or there is already some rule for that .. I just haven't really gone through that before. I have only been using development boards/kits but never actually moved to the production step. And now I need, after the design-stage and testing, to have a mass production of that board. So that is why those details matter very much at this point.

      Thanks a lot Robert.

    Are you asking about FEDEVEL specifically or general? Pricing can be different between different companies, depends what you agree on e.g.
    - you can agree on design only (a company will design board based on your specification, you will get manufacturing documentation and you manage production by yourself)
    - or for example you can agree on design + manufacturing (in this case, you may pay some money for design or you agree to buy certain number of your custom made boards each year)

        - About manufacturing & selling boards: FEDEVEL doesn't manufacture nor sell boards. All our boards are manufactured through VOIPAC.
        - About board design: It is very difficult with our time. We are booked out 10 months ahead and can not take any new custom projects
