Product Development Services

Data Patterns offers the broadest and most comprehensive range of standard products, providing solutions from COTS modules to multi rack system integration. We offer products for use in multiple domains including Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) and Rugged Military Electronics (RME). We are a pioneering Indian company, and leaders in the development of advanced functionalities, world class thermal and environmental protection, often with Built-in Test and life cycle maintenance strategies.

Our design philosophy revolves around:
  • Re-usability – Quick product development
  • Scalability – Seamless enhancement
  • Adaptability – Various Platforms
  • Interoperability – Co-existence
  • Testability – Test coverage and diagnostics
  • Maintainability – Long term support and protection against obsolescence

Our domain exposure includes Embedded systems, Wireless communications, Signal processing, Communication Systems, Control Systems, Navigation and Radar processing. We are experts in these domains, and have extensive experience from conceptualization and architecture, to bit stream generation, for the desired end use. To support our design and delivery, we are exceptionally competent in Mathematical Modeling, Data analysis, Feasibility checks, System development, System Performance analysis and rapid prototyping.

When required, for realizing hardware design, high reliability processes to eliminate error progression are followed in Data Patterns. Events such as Power Analysis, Thermal Analysis, Structural Analysis, FMECA (Failure Mode Effect and Criticality Analysis) and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures), acts as gates to design reliability into the product. We also build customized test setups to verify and ensure performance against specifications.

Data Patterns has the advantage of having tried and tested in-house COTS and custom boards. In a great number of cases, the deployed modules have already been tested as a productionized block. The setup is modular and allows selection of boards for specific requirements with next to nil wasted and redundant functions. We build using commercial and rugged building blocks, already available in our portfolio, as well as new designs whenever required.

Data Patterns’ ability to not only design the product but to also manufacture the first prototypes, test the product, provide first article inspection services, and undertake production runs, all within the same establishment, offers a significant advantage of single point communication, and consequently, flawless synergy.

As a sampling of end-use applications, we have products that have been qualified for operating temperatures of -40°. c to +85°. centigrade and storage temperature of -55°. c to +125°. Centigrade. We are able to offer products that operate in Relative Humidity levels upto 100% RH. Products that withstand vibration of 12Grms and shock up to 100G have been designed and tested. Electro-static discharge (ESD) levels of 20KV can be offered. Designs of products operating from 18000 meters altitude to underwater depths of 2000 meters have been carried out successfully.

Our portfolio of products can be categorized as follows, and reflects our readiness to develop bespoke products in these, and, related areas and configurations (For details, visit our Products Menu):

Data Patterns design and development processes have been validated by international customers. Good product realization practices such as release of BOMs at 3 stages, preliminary, interim and final, aid smooth timely sourcing of components, and therefore, quick turnarounds. Early kick-off for procuring long-lead time components is ensured by advance selection and sourcing of critical components by our supply chain experts, avoiding delays downstream, to the extent feasible. An extensive component data base with a stringent specification approval process for new components ensures the right use of the optimum parts. Preliminary BOM preparation and approval for demand planning in ERP, allows for lead time required to procure critical components. Our designers have also developed an in-house tool for calculating cumulative derating, loading and signal integrity, to ensure the right components are used for the desired optimum performance.

A Project Management Office (PMO) ensures development of a charter, initiation, planning, risk evaluation and mitigation, resource monitoring, status reporting. Dedicated professionals band together in virtual teams for each project. Effective use of DRB (Design Review Board) CMO (Configuration Management Office), FAB (Failure Analysis Board) and SAB (Salvage Analysis Board) ensures learning is looped back into the system, continuously enhancing our expertise and ability to support the desired performance objective, including extended use. DRB reviews the product for in-depth functional, performance, reliability, safety, testability, standardization, and manufacturability. It provides cross-functional assessment and recommendations. CMO is a single point version control and traceability entity that ensures extensive documentation, which is archived for ease of retrieval, and allows for the maintenance of the system, even with change of support personnel. FAB and SAB captures, and grows, our knowledge base to preempt and prevent failures.
