Start a New Project with ACDi

We know there are a lot of moving parts when starting out a new electronic design or manufacturing project. And, we also know that you might need some idea on program costs in order to finalize your program budget BEFORE all the data is finalized. AND, we know that sometimes you need some help with defining all of the specifications for your program. We’re here to help.

Below is a guideline of the information needed in order for ACDi to provide a complete and accurate quote for your project. Of course the more information you can provide the more accurate a quote we can give. However, don’t hesitate to contact us if you only have some of the data listed as we can work together to provide a budgetary proposal. Contact us to speak with ACDi’s technical team for suggestions on some of those undefined parameters to ensure manufacturing and design best practices.
