FAQ

Where does the work begin? Do you sign an NDA first?

 

First, we sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and clarify the details of the project. Then we draft a business proposal. Once the agreement is signed, our engineers get to work and you can watch your idea come to life!

 

What is the completion time?

 

The duration of a project is highly dependent on its unique characteristics, complexity, size, component selection and logistical considerations. For example, a project audit may take 1 to 2 months to complete, whereas the development of AI-driven software typically takes longer. We consistently set achievable deadlines during the specification phase and adhere to the schedule throughout all project phases.
 

What will I receive upon project completion?

 

Once the project reaches its conclusion, you will obtain a fully operational device, prototype, or software along with comprehensive technical documentation, source codes, and PCB design files in a CAD format. Detailed instructions on product usage will be provided to you. Additionally, we offer training sessions as needed.

 

How are intellectual property rights handled?

 

Throughout our collaboration, we ensure clear agreements are in place to address ownership and protection of intellectual property. Our standard practice includes signing NDAs to safeguard sensitive information and outlining ownership rights in project contracts. In addition, we will only mention your project on our website and other platforms with your permission.
