Teledyne Micralyne aims to establish a clear understanding of your needs as early as possible in engagements. Early on, we evaluate our mutual fit and define our approach to lead you to viable, volume manufacturing. We then explore your technical requirements and specifications, as well as business parameters and fulfillment timelines. We also explore and understand any risks ahead including regulatory, technical or market, so we are on the same page with clients.

To help you anticipate these discussions, here are the main elements of Teledyne Micralyne’s engagement requirements checklist.
