Starting point for Mandalon
The challenges within prototyping are many and often very interesting. Experiences from very different fields of expertise comes in handy, especially when it comes to RF compatibility, thermal aspects, adhesion, dimensions and choice of materials to mention some.
During the prototype phase, the focus is getting the chip to talk to the world for the first time. Aspects like producibility and reliability are normally set aside. However, further down the path, those aspects grow in importance. Nevertheless, early planning for those aspects may be a good time investment when it comes to production.
