Summary & Conclusion
The design process for developing a product involves several key steps, starting with understanding market needs and translating them into product requirements. These requirements are then further translated into engineering specifications, which guide the system architecture design, schematic capture, layout, and validation and verification testing. The goal is to create a product that meets the market demands while considering factors such as performance, compliance, connectivity, power, RF, signal integrity, and thermal considerations.
Designing a system based on market requirements and product specifications is crucial for system design engineers to make informed decisions regarding scope, schedule, and cost trade-offs. By following a systematic approach and ensuring the alignment of market needs with product features, engineers can develop successful products that meet customer expectations.
