The purpose of design validation testing is to analyze if all set requirements are met. Typically, there are three types of Design validation tests in a hardware development project:
1. RD testing typically made by project engineers using Haltian labs and equipment,
2. Lab testing in dedicated labs e.g. to measure WiFi power levels or EMC characteristics prior to official Market Access tests, and
3. Field testing to see how the device performs in actual use location, environment, and operated by (not always so friendly) users.
Different performance characteristics like power consumption/battery life, antenna gain and transmission power, EMC/EMI, chemical and mechanical durability and robustness, wearing of moving parts, etc. are typically tested both separately but also as an entire device or system. Design validation testing including lab capacity allocation, detailed test planning, and results evaluation are parts of the basic product development process but are also available as separate services.
Test coverage depends on the requirements of the product, but also on the requirements of the market area, the selected technologies, and the applicable directives and general standards. Our partners have a comprehensive range of testing equipment. This, together with the certification body’s partners, guarantees Haltian’s customers good product testing coverage.
Haltian’s agile way of working in the product development phase ensures that products enter the market with high quality and on time. Extensive experience in product development and methods ensures that projects go smoothly through the development stages.
