Custom Firmware Development Services
Our embedded engineering department offers a wealth of experience in custom firmware and software development for a variety of platforms and device types. Whether it’s a part of a complex IoT solution, an innovative wearable, an experimental board with a unique hardware design, a custom-built controller, or an industrial sensor with secure connectivity, our firmware team has got you covered.
We build embedded software for nearly all mainstream commercial platforms, MCUs, CPUs and SOCs manufactured by companies like Nvidia, Qualcomm, Marvell, Intel, AMD, Texas Instruments, NXP, and many others.
Leverage our expertise in end-to-end firmware development to dramatically shorten your time-to-market and release stable, high-performance, and secure devices for consumer and specialty markets.
CUSTOM FIRMWARE DEVELOPMENT
We develop custom firmware and turn custom boards and device prototypes into production-quality devices running any OS and supporting the entire array of planned features. Whenever new hardware components are added to subsequent revisions, we update the firmware accordingly.
BOARD SUPPORT PACKAGE (BSP)
We support all popular CPUs/SoCs and build BSPs that meet the most non-standard clients’ requirements in terms of BSP package size, boot time, wake up time, performance or connectivity. All our BSP are thoroughly tested at many levels to ensure ultimate stability and responsiveness.
DEVICE DRIVER DEVELOPMENT
We are instrumental in developing system drivers for various hardware components of your products: sensors, actuators, servos, audio devices, keys and keyboards, network controllers, imaging and alternative input devices, to name just a few.
We’ll help connect your device firmware to a mobile app, user-facing web apps or backend systems via secure, reliable, and fast middleware components working in the cloud or a client-designated environment: web servers, microservices, infrastructure libraries, or third-party components.
APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT (STB APPLICATIONS, SERVER MONITORING SOLUTIONS, VIRTUALIZATION SOLUTIONS)
We build feature-packed applications for the web, mobile devices, kiosks and STBs that enable users to effectively control devices and instantly exchange data with various hardware components for device control, monitoring or visualization purposes.
We will help add full support of various wired and wireless communication types (Bluetooth/BLE, WiFi, 3G/LTE, LoRA based platform, Zigbee, SigFox, LTE-M, NB-IoT, and EC-GSM-IoT) to your devices and implement timely connection handover, error correction, and signal amplification when and where necessary.
Let our embedded system architects and lead developers analyze your product specs and requirements to come up with a list of issues, a solid remediation plan, and a balanced, cost-effective feature implementation plan aligned with your timeline and budget.
Get professional conclusions regarding the quality of your embedded code, fulness of feature implementation, data security, and various other aspects covered by our comprehensive audit practices. Use it to make informed decisions regarding your current embedded service provider and further development plans.
Firmware and embedded systems run at the very heart of electronic devices, which is why their stable and error-free operation is incredibly important. Our QA and testing services will help you test your embedded code from various angles and make mission-critical enhancements before letting your embedded device go live.
MIGRATION OF LEGACY FIRMWARE TO NEW HARDWARE PLATFORMST
We will help port your existing firmware, including the loader piece and low-level algorithms, to a new hardware platform while fully preserving its functionality and preparing it for future updates (including OTA), thus reducing migration costs and duration.
Let our team take a deep dive into your high-level product specifications, your code, conduct thorough testing and performance profiling, identify performance bottlenecks and suggest optimization scenarios that will produce the maximum effect for the least investment possible.
No systems exist in full isolation — and embedded systems are no exception. Take advantage of our deep understanding of various embedded operating systems (including real-time operating systems and high-level operating systems), chipsets, protocols, and data exchange methods to reliably bridge gaps between devices and IoT systems.
Our team offers years of expertise implementing complex, adaptive power management scenarios for battery life extension and power consumption optimization. Our power management solutions help boost the duration of autonomous work while maintaining performance and other key parameters in line with target specifications.

How we work
- Before starting the development phase, we thoroughly explore the client’s needs and requirements to get a holistic vision of the future product and understand how to structure our code.
- Based on the collected requirements, our developers design the optimal code architecture.
- The development process is fully transparent for the client and is based on agile project management methodologies.
- Our QA specialists ensure the top quality of our embedded Linux code that lets our clients enjoy the stable operation of their hardware under any conditions.
Models of Cooperation
Yes, our team can help you upgrade your firmware.
Every client has a unique case, so we implement a customer-oriented approach towards development. Our team keeps in touch with the client throughout the entire development to track the process and keep it transparent.
No. It’s important to have the hardware at hand for stability and smooth performance out of the box.
Most frequently, C and C++ are implemented. Based on the characteristics of the platform and tasks, other languages can be used as well.
There is no specific set of tools used for every firmware project. The exact scope of instruments is chosen based on the individual characteristics of the project.
