Embedded Software Development Services

"Embedded software" is a set of code instructions for non-PC devices – either as part of a microcontroller or as part of another application that sits on top of the chip – to control specific functions of the embedded system / device. Unlike software applications which can be installed on a variety of computers and different operating systems, embedded solutions have fixed hardware requirements and capabilities and are created exclusively for the particular device that it runs on, with processing and memory restrictions tied directly to that device’s specifications.

From PCB design, Drivers, Board Support Packages to replatforming, Linux development, connectivity, and IoT.

OUR EMBEDDED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

FIRMWARE AND EMBEDDED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

We can help with bare metal code, bootloaders, OS kernel programming to get your hardware working according to the specified requirements. We provide deep expertise in working with different hardware and CPU architectures including ARM, X86, PowerPC, AVR, PIC

DRIVERS AND BOARD SUPPORT PACKAGES DEVELOPMENT

Our team can create a Board Support Package / OS Kernel package for your hardware to communicate with Embedded Linux, Android, Buildroot - based operating system or RTOS. We are also very experienced in driver development and optimization for connecting your hardware with peripheral modules and external devices.

REPLATFORMING

Our experienced team has accomplished multiple migrations between different platforms. Legacy technologies and unsuccessful products require a lot of investment and can make your product too complicated to maintain and improve. Our main services would include Migration to Linux, Android, iOS, helping with containerization and moving your solution to Yocto platform.

FIRMWARE AND EMBEDDED SOFTWARE TESTING

Software testing is a rigorous process that can be time consuming and requires certain technical skills and knowledge. Our team can help with manual and automated testing in both on-target or on-host modes. In both scenarios we use the most advanced testing techniques, tools, and frameworks like Vector Software, KlocWork, Parasoft DTP, Hitex to name a few.

DEVELOPMENT OF AN EMBEDDED SYSTEM FOR A LARGER SOFTWARE PROJECT

Thanks to our large, global teams of 800+ people, we are not just experienced firmware development professionals, but our company has an extensive background in “traditional” backend and frontend technologies, mobile apps, cloud services, as well as IoT. We can integrate your embedded system into existing enterprise IT landscape using APIs, or by building a mobile, desktop, web, or cloud application as a complete end-to-end development project.

APIs AND INTEGRATIONS

Experienced not only with Embedded Software, but also with traditional web and cloud-based apps, mobile, desktop, as well as IoT solutions. We can handle the end-to-end delivery and problem solving, and define the best scenario for your solution.

EMBEDDED UI DEVELOPMENT

We can help build a high-performing, scalable, and robust Graphical User Interface utilizing the most modern GUI technologies, including Linux-based frameworks like Qt, TotalCross, LVGL, uGFX, uGFX, GUIslice, GuiLite, or platform-independent Tcl/Tk, ReactJS Widgets, and web applications in AngularJS.

AUDIT, PERFORMANCE TUNING AND PROBLEM SOLVING

Should you have an issue with leaking memory, performance, or security of your product, our experts would gladly take the case and analyze your solution from hardware design, platform and low level code to the APIs and integrations.

HARDWARE DESIGN AND PROTOTYPING

Our team can help you at any stage of your project's development process. From reference board selection, breadboard prototyping, board bring up and PoC. We can create a testing infrastructure, help you pick the right Reference Board or Evaluation Kit with all the needed peripherals and connected infrastructure, build a prototype, create a board support package for the needed Operating System (OS), and create or customize drivers and apps.
