Here a comparison between some possible alternatives for your projects

Boundary conditions:
1
Normal project, neither too complex nor too simple.
2
All the involved people (HW & SW technicians) have the know how, specific experience and enough time and tools to work properly.
3
Exclude any application SW problem.
Understand detail of all things

This is always critical, it does not matter which solution will be chosen
