Protostar: Off-the-Shelf and Customized
Vesta has a line of standard products and peripherals. These have been designed for compatibility – our computer boards make use of standard connections that are common across our product line. Our goal is to get you into production as quickly as possible in today’s competitive business environment.
Protostar is Vesta’s program and process that deals with the need for boards not in our standard line of products. It starts with a determination of your needs, and continues through an evaluation of the most cost-effective way Vesta can meet them. Although we have extensive experience with the design and manufacture of fully-custom boards for customers, we have also produced standard boards with a custom connector configuration to meet a customer’s specific requirements and desired results.
Our boards have been designed to make it easy to go from prototype to production. Because the trickiest board to bring up as a new design is usually a computer board, we have several that have been designed as plug-in mezzanine modules. This permits a system to be prototyped with an SBC and one or more peripheral boards, and the only custom board necessary for production is one that combines the I/O peripherals onto a single board that the SBC plugs into.
