FPrin has a comprehensive suite of equipment, services and staff that allow us to provide our Clients with world-class Systems Engineering focused on medical device development ranging from initial prototyping to pilot production builds.


In our 2400 square foot facility in Santa Clara, CA we provide:

  • Ideation, Proof-of-Concept and Technology Evaluation
  • Basic design analysis: scoping models & foundational empirical analysis
  • User-Centered Design
  • First Principles-based modeling services ranging from simple, sub-system-focused scoping models to full, FEA-based digital twins.
  • Complete, system-level, prototyping services
  • Design & Engineering Verification Testing
  • Clinical Builds
  • DFM/A Services that are “built-in” to the design from the beginning of the design process
  • Virtual scale-up, Monte Carlo modeling services to assure a seamless ramp into Manufacturing.
  • Seamless transfer to manufacturing with proven NPI partnerships

Model Based Design Services:

At FPrin we have extensive Model-Based Design services.  We apply sophisticated FEA tools for CFD, thermal, and solid-mechanics.   Our modeling capabilities range from simple scoping models to evaluate component and sub-systems up to full “digital twin”, system-level models that are predictive of device performance and provide value as a tool to guide the design team to robust design decisions.  We also specialize in Monte Carlo simulations that allow our clients to gain a deeper understanding of the variability that their systems will encounter as they ramp-up in manufacturing. 

Together, these capabilities provide a level of understanding to our clients that makes the difference between quirky systems that work some of the time, and systems that robustly and consistently work.  This is the difference between devices that WILL WORK when scaled to manufacturing versus ones that CAN WORK.
