First Resonance Overview

First Resonance accelerates speed and reliability in hardware development for companies manufacturing the next generation of hardware. Our team has experienced the pains that come with developing complex hardware systems at companies like SpaceX, and we’ve learned that it’s not the lack of innovation that is stalling companies. Rather, these companies simply do not have the tools they need to move fast and deliver reliable hardware. They’re often left to fend for themselves and have to build software tooling in-house. We remove these barriers by providing industry-specific software applications to accelerate hardware development.
