This is probably not the best forum, but I am looking for an E.E. to be partners with to develop a device that interfaces with an iPhone. (I already have the hardware spec from the Apple program)
Additionally I will likely need a person to design the physical characteristics of the device.
Anyone have any suggestions? This is most likely simple enough that any grad student could do it.
I will caution to to avoid freelance sites for EE projects
The consensus for your question on Chip Hacker was to approach a local university, which is a good idea in some cases. I've done the same ... sometimes it works, sometimes not. As mentioned in answers there, I had major problems getting a device through certifications (We were making some USB gizmos).
If its really this basic, you may want to just shop around for some smaller EE firms and get some ball park quotes. You know your IP is going to be respected if you stay in your country, you get a guarantee of certification and govt approval .. and you have a much lower risk of a grad student flaking out on you :)
