What We’ve Done For Others
- For a medical device major, HCL designed and developed a cutting edge product (a drug delivery system for Class III medical devices) and achieved a 30% reduction in time to market by adopting ISO13485 compliant development activities and regulatory support.
- HCL was involved in the product design and development of an intelligent grid connected solar inverter, which supports up to 5.4KW of power. HCL increased the wattage of the hardware-based board by 50% (from 1.8KW to 5.4KW) without increasing the size of the board, and also completely redesigned the mechanical enclosure so that peak efficiency increased to around 96.5%.
