Tempo accelerates Blur’s medical device prototyping
SAN FRANCISCO, December 14, 2022 —
Tempo Automation Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: TMPO) (“Tempo Automation” or “Tempo”) announced today that Blur Product Development (“Blur”), a leading medical device design and development partner, has elected to leverage Tempo’s Accelerated Electronics Manufacturing Platform to speed up product development timelines for its clients.
Recognizing that delays can result in significant costs to their clients as a result of extra work and delayed or lost revenues, the team at Blur has opted to rely on Tempo’s first-time-right printed circuit board assemblies (“PCBAs”). The Tempo platform supports Blur’s acceleration efforts through prototyping and into production, ultimately bringing clients’ projects to market more quickly.
Blur recently ran the same 50-board project through both Tempo and another PCBA vendor that promised quick turn times. While both manufacturers were able to deliver boards quickly, Tempo’s quality stood out.
“With the other vendor, who was lower priced, we had almost 50% fallout on 50 circuit boards,” said Jeff Rosino, Partner at Blur. “We had 0% fallout when running the same order through Tempo.”
With exceptionally high acceptance rates and fast shipments, it is an easy decision to continue to partner with Tempo. “Tempo’s quality paired with speed blows us away,” said Rosino.
Additionally, Blur looks for flexibility in its partners, which comes down to the ability to make changes quickly. “We value Tempo’s ability to adapt purchase orders to meet changing needs, especially given current component availability constraints,” said Rosino.
Joy Weiss, CEO of Tempo Automation, said “Tempo has focused its manufacturing platform to serve the unique needs of early stage electronic product development. Like Blur, our goal is to help get our customers’ products to market as quickly as possible.”
