What is AllSpice.io, and why was it made? Our founding story

One of our founders, Kyle, was working at a 3D printing company two years ago when he first noticed the lack of tools for hardware developers. He was building the electrical and software engineering teams. As the company grew bigger, he looked for tools to help manage the development process and allow his teams to collaborate.

Reviewing component changes and chip shortages

Over the last 6 months, the global semiconductor shortage has been consistently making news for the wave of resulting disruption across the hardware world. From automotive to consumer electronics, virtually every hardware industry has had to scramble to find component replacements ranging from sophisticated ICs to simple microcontrollers.

Adopting a SW like HW development process.

8 benefits of adopting software processes for hardware

Because software and hardware are so closely connected, they are starting to cross-pollinate across teams. Hardware engineers are cherry picking what can improve their current processes. Although these principles cannot be simply copied and pasted from SW to HW development, much can be borrowed and adapted. We broke down how to do so in 8 ways.

Hardware team alignment

How hardware leads can align their team to corporate goals

A simple miscommunication or lost update can cause a domino effect that spreads across huge portions of an organization and its stakeholders within multiple teams. Its impact can throw business goals off the rails; stalling new projects, delaying other customer orders, and frustrating employees. Alignment is far more than a buzzword – taking these steps to keep everyone on the same page is well worth the effort.

Onshoring, offshoring, and friendshoring.

Why engineers choose to onshore, offshore, and friendshore

Engineers have been hit hard by the weakened supply chain, like many other roles and industries. So what now? Offshoring, onshoring, and friendshoring all have their benefits. Here are some reasons why certain engineering groups are choosing to source their CMs differently.

Digital design review.

Digital design reviews are moving beyond the conference room

Hardware engineers are all too familiar with what in-person design reviews look like. As engineering evolves, however, they are being replaced by asynchronous collaboration on a platform. Here’s why many in-person meetings are being replaced by digital design reviews.
