PARPRO: A One-Stop Shop for Design in Manufacturing
Darren Wetherhold, Principle Engineer
Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and traditional manufacturers rely heavily on their original design manufacturers (ODMs) to not only provide a viable design solution but also substantially lower the production costs. However, it tends to be a difficult endeavor for a sizeable number of modern ODMs where their capabilities are weighed down with challenges involving design to market, faster execution of concept to design and production, and hardware complexities. In the pursuit of mitigating these limitations, ODMs fail to contain the production costs and end up overspending the production budget.
This is where PARPRO comes to the rescue of OEM suppliers with its all-in-one design and manufacturing solutions. Established as a prominent ODM supplier, the company offers its customers a one-stop shop for all their engagements associated with design, development, and production rendering more flexible and better quality solution and resulting in a lower total cost of ownership over traditional OEM suppliers. Darren Wetherhold, Principle Engineer of PARPRO, says, “Our customers come to us for end-to-end solutions. We offer an array of solutions that provides customers with an option to select the right one for their business.”
As a vertically integrated company, PARPRO offers a complete menu of manufacturing and design services to their clients.
“Apart from extending our expertise on the technical side we also guide our clients on the monetary side helping them in managing the design and manufacturing expenses of the product,” adds Wetherhold. PARPRO specializes in the areas of developing the concepts and the intricacies of production processes while providing support to the entire life cycle of the product. The company also specializes in PCB layout services, design for test manufacturability (DFM)/Assembly (DFA) besides design analysis.
In addition to PCB layouts, PARPRO’s design portfolio includes chassis designs, add-in cards and fully custom embedded platforms with specializations in embedded systems development using multi-core processing solutions, high capacity I/O, with a diverse set of processing technologies like Ethernet, SAS and PCIe. The company performs the custom integration of low-to-high end x86 and ARM processors integrated with NPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs while also designs Custom monolithic board design BIOS, OS, firmware, and driver support and customization. Wetherhold states, “If our customers seem unsure with their design margins, our engineers give their utmost attention in ensuring the reduction of the total cost while guiding the project from start till end.”
