Why work with AJProTech ?
We’re 100% focused on creating smart devices. All of our staff are experienced in the IoT space. We know what hurdles to expect when creating an AJProTech product and how to clear them..
We take your idea from concept to full scale production. Our diverse staff will help you with initial product design, 3D mockups, electrical and mechanical engineering, wireless or wired communication, device firmware, cloud software, apps and so much more.
Once a requirements document is approved by both parties, we guarantee that functionality for a flat price and stand behind our work with a one-year bug-fix warranty. You can look at our price and quickly calculate your ROI.

Our Case Studies
OUR ENGAGEMENT PROCESS
We learn about your unique goals and challenges. We apply our engineering expertise to plan your product journey.
- Schedule free engineering consultation
- Complete new Project questionnaire HERE
We prepare a detailed product specification, select proper technologies, and prepare product roadmap. Get answers to the most pressing questions - how it looks, how it works, how much it costs.
- Product requirements
- User script
- Dimensional estimates
- Product sketching
- 3D renders
- Component selection
- Product cost breakdown
- Project budget and schedule
Rapidly create Proof of Concept. These “Work like” prototypes showcase your product features while using off-the-shelf components and rapid prototyping techniques.
- Validate key components on off-the-shelf components
- Rapid prototyping (<5 units)
- Create Minimal Viable Product (MVP)
- Use first samples to begin user testing
Concept is proven - time to design your product! We create “Work Like, Look Like” samples that looks and functions very similar to production units. You may use this on trade shows, UL / FCC testing, and investor presentations.
- Industrial design
- Hardware development
- Mechanical Design
- Embedded Firmware
- Prototyping (<10 units)
- Engineering test reports
We cooperate with Contract Manufacturers to prepare product for Mass Production. It involves Design for Manufacturing, Tooling, Compliance testing. Work is done in two phases, DVT and PVT.
- Select Manufacturer (CM)
- Design for Manufacturing (DFM)
- Firmware / Software finalization
- Tooling for Mechanical parts
- Prototyping with CM (10-50 units)
- Compliance tests (FCC, UL, CE)
- Setup manufacturing process
- Prepare Functional tests
Frequently asked questions
We understand the importance of IP for innovative products.
Before sharing confidential information, we sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).
You, as a client, own the results of all work with us.
High volume, low cost products (e.g. Consumer Electronics) are typically manufactured in South East Asia - China, Taiwan, Vietnam.
Low volume, high cost products (e.g. Medical devices, Industrial equipment) may be made in the USA.
We can evaluate production cost so you make educated decision. We can make introductions to manufacturers we worked previously but it is your decision which factory you choose.
First, when a Chinese manufacturer develops a product for you, often at low cost, they own the IP. If you ever need to move production to another factory or expand your manufacturing, it often requires creating all design files from scratch.We make your product manufacturer-agnostic - you can work with any Contract manufacturer of your choice.
Second, when working with a Product Design studio, like AJProTech, you own the IP and design files. We teach you to strategically distribute manufacturing of parts on different factories to ensure your product can not be copied by either of those.
Third, most manufacturers are great at making products cost-effective. However, most factories also benefit from re-using the same technologies they are familiar with. In many cases, that makes the product less innovative. Often, manufacturers use components that are best for their profit margins.
AJProTech covers entire product development - from Idea to Mass Manufacturing. Hardware design is our core strength.
We design Electronics - PCBs, Embedded Firmware.
We create Industrial and Mechanical designs from plastic and metal.
We develop Mobile apps that connect to your smart products
We do Design for Manufacturing optimization with Contract Manufacturers
And we communicate with Factories to ensure your product is ready for production
Unlike software development, where new releases can be done every week, cost of change in Hardware is often measured in months. Proper design process is essential for a successful product. Our products are designed in sprints: MVP, EVT, DVT, PVT.
Most products can be prototyped in 10-16 weeks.
Typical time to get a product ready for mass production is 10-12 months.
Each project is unique in its complexity and design needs - there is no one-size-fits all. To get a proper estimate, we encourage you to schedule a free 30-minute consultation with our team. We may give you an estimate of design cost and development timeframe right on the call.
Absolutely! We have a fully equipped prototyping lab with PCBA assembly equipment, 3D printers and machining tools. We quickly produce, test, and iterate prototypes.
When silicon molding, laser cutting, or CNC bending are required, we work with local partners to get parts done and delivered to our lab for final assembly
