Embedded Software Development - smart and efficient code
Hardware + Software working together to perform an action.
Embedded software development is the practice of writing smart and efficient code to control a system within a larger mechanical, electronic or electrical system. Take the example of a washing machine - you have all the hardware parts eg the drum, motor and power supply but you need the software to talk to these parts to make them work together to perfom the differing tasks needed for different types of washing cycles.
The software and operating system requirements of an embedded system are different from traditional computer based systems, it is written specifically for the particular hardware that it runs on and usually has processing and memory constraints because of the device’s limited computing capabilities. The development is usually more complicated because you are not using a normal computer and requires a specialist embedded software developer.
Our embedded software projects have included working with:
- Siemens PLC's
- 96Boards (Dragon Board)
- Casio IT-9000 handheld printer terminals
- 3D Scanners
We have completed embedded software development projects for the following industries:
- Personel Tracking
