In today’s market, the power electronics segment enjoys intensive growth due to modern trends in environment protection, electrification of various industries, and the economy in the usage of oil and gas. So, there is a surge in demand for services in developing custom power electronics products and there are dozens of companies that provide such services.

How to choose the right company that can develop high-quality power electronics for your needs? You should be careful while making your choice because building power electronics requires meeting safety standards and strict certification requirements.

Here are 3 points that you should keep in focus to find the right power electronics company:

  1. Your power electronics product should comply with certification requirements that your target market uses. You should research what safety and regulatory standards are compulsory in the countries where you plan to sell your product. So, it is important to find a company that has strong expertise in dealing with regulatory standards for power electronics.
  2. In the process of development and after it, a power electronics device should go through a series of rigorous tests. The company that will develop your product should have all the necessary lab testing equipment like oscilloscopes, passive and current probes, power analyzers, and power supplies. By the way, the test equipment should have the right voltage range that depends on what power electronics product you develop.
  3. Simulation and modeling should be taken into account when we talk about designing a complex power electronics product. Simulation allows for representing how an electronic circuit or the entire system would perform functions in certain working conditions. Simulation software can simulate these conditions and the functionality of the system. It means that the company that you will choose should have not only necessary tools and testing equipment, but also simulation software as well.

Now we can see that the right choice of power electronics design company is a half of success in building your product.
