From our heritage in wireless communications and the fastest-moving consumer electronics, we stay at the forefront of innovation.
From colors and materials to finishes, textures and technologies, our design team monitors the pulse of trends here and abroad, inspiring our work and empowering clients with insights to inform their programs.
Wherever our clients' consumers interact with products, including around the globe, you’ll find PDT's research team observing them in context, gaining deep understanding of their needs and opportunities in the marketplace.
Technology has never moved as quickly as it has over the last several years. Our teams stay in touch with the latest developments from suppliers around the world to learn firsthand what new offerings are available how best to integrate them into our engineering solutions.
PDT’s designers then translate our research into inspired solutions that build your brand and drive increased market share.
At PDT, engineers work hand in hand with designers to ensure our clients' solutions are translated seamlessly to production. Manufacturability is never an afterthought - it's designed in from the start.
Approximately 80% of the products PDT brings to life feature a power button. Our electrical engineers create PCB layouts and component architecture at the earliest stage of each project, and incorporate power management, component integration, and effective component placement into the design process to optimize form factor and usability.
An engaging user interface is increasingly the heart of consumers' experience with your product, and a great user experience is critical to your bottom line. PDT's UX and software teams develop intuitive, organized graphics and information architecture for any device with a screen.
PDT's in-house prototype shop is staffed by highly technical craftspeople who fabricate precision models for testing, evaluation, and marketing purposes.
We know the rigor today's products are expected to endure. Our quality assurance team is equipped to test products for myriad challenges, including drop, immersion, life cycle, temperature and ingress.
Our global sourcing professionals work with a trusted network of pre-qualified suppliers for tooling, testing, and high-volume manufacturing, taking the stress and uncertainty out of overseas production.
Our local 167,000 SF manufacturing facility is
