Porticos Contribution

Compact and Rugged Device

Porticos was engaged early, when the product was still vaguely defined.  We worked with SmallHD to develop the architecture that would protect an unproven display module, and result in a truly compact and rugged device.  Then Porticos performed all of the detailed design and prototype fabrication.  Once this product was launched, Porticos continued to support it by designing fixtures to improve assembly and testing.  Years later, Porticos continues to provide support for this and other SmallHD products.
