The Whistle Communications’ InterJet product line was built on a PC platform with MacOS compatibility. It contained a CPU board, four additional PC board slots, front panel display with an elastomeric keypad. The base chassis was fabricated sheet metal. The front and rear panels as well as the feet and light pipes were injection molded plastic. NETBased provided industrial design, mechanical design and drove the enclosure all the way through manufacturing.
What we provided for this project:
- Design concept architecture
- Industrial design
- Mechanical design for both sheet metal and injection molded plastic parts
- Turned out all sheet metal, plastic and the elastomeric keypad
Whistle Communications was acquired by IBM shortly after the product was introduced.
