Firmware development is not necessarily limited to correcting issues that were identified after a particular product was released. In fact, the functional advantages of firmware development keep advancing and expanding parallelly to technologies like IoT and M2M Computing. Today, every software and embedded systems company needs a stellar team of firmware developers like ours at Flatworld.
Besides the basic development and programming, we cover end-to-end firmware solutions right from improving the performance of hardware functions to integrating additional functionality, and much more. If you're looking to gain an edge over conventional software development services, join hands with Flatworld's team of experts with proficiency in cutting-edge tools and the most advanced services.
Our Firmware Development Services
Although it's hard to limit firmware development to a confined range of services, Flatworld covers an assortment of specialized embedded firmware development services including -
Custom Firmware Solutions
Also known as the ‘aftermarket firmware', custom firmware is an upgraded version of the previously available firmware on various embedded systems. Our developers hold expertise in providing custom firmware solutions to give new features or unlock new functions on the hardware of devices.
Embedded Firmware Development and Programming Services
This is the broadest bracket under which our embedded systems engineers come together with experts in various technical fields for end-to-end firmware development, programming, and support.
Firmware Testing Services
Besides the three-level testing that is a part of every firmware development process of ours, we also conduct specialized testing of firmware for malfunctions, issues, or straightforward investigation of machine states after execution. These include microprogram level testing, system-level testing, middleware testing, and more.
Firmware Development and Integration
Flexibility in working with all levels of firmware (high, low, and subsystems), integration compatibility with an expansive range of microprocessor and ES brands, diversity in upgrading functional features; we check all the must-haves of firmware development services.
System Architecture and Partitioning
Mapping, segregating, and separating a system-level architecture into its different hardware, firmware, and software components require the utmost precision and experience. That's exactly what our team brings to the table.
RTOS and Hardware Abstraction
Another service that exemplifies the commendable skill, technique, and proficiency of our experts with hardware and the entire firmware architecture, abstraction involves hiding the complexity of specific layers of a subsystem. We work with VxWorks, Embedded Linux, QNX, WinCE, and more such operating systems in the RTOS abstraction layer.
Update and Diagnostics on Firmware
We have a range of modern tools that allow us to conduct various diagnostics on firmware. This helps us identify complex issues and resolve them, while also updating the firmware for better performance.
BSP Layer Programming
BSP layer is software in embedded systems that runs and executes the program as a sequence of parallel super steps. Several intricate details like barrier synchronization, phase ordering, among others should be considered while programming, and that's where our ES specialists step in and steal the show.
Firmware Validation and Debugging
One of the most important elements of firmware development project management is validation and debugging. Considering the client's specifications, international quality standards, and performance criteria, our experts conduct the validation and debugging process to ensure all purposes are fulfilled without any issues.
Our Firmware Development Process
Being a trusted firmware development service providing company, we develop unique solutions as per the client's requirements. However, to reach any deliverable, we operate under the broader framework of the following stages -
01. Collection and Discussion of Client's Requirements
As the most preliminary stage of our firmware development lifecycle, at Flatworld we make sure that all expectations and requirements are communicated properly, solutions are proposed, variables are discussed, and a rough plan is worked out
02. Developing a Firmware Design Document
Taking into account every detailed requirement of our client's hardware and carefully analyzing constraints like power management, complexity, timing, security, and resource optimization, our expert team of firmware and hardware engineers develops a firmware design document. While the foremost job here is distinguishing architecture from design, other important tasks include outlining device drivers, subsystems, and the interface between them, among others
03. Time-based Solutions Implementation
This is the step that varies the most among different clients, as per the services that we offer for that project. From developing an SRAM/FRAM SPI interface to configuring kernels; whatever be the solutions, our implementation always works around time-based requirements in the architecture
04. Three-level Testing
As per the requirement of the firmware and hardware, several stages are involved in testing. However, our mandatory three-level testing protocol involves verifications through system tests, integration tests, and unit tests
05. Change and Modification Planning
Most testing results indicate areas that can be worked on to further enhance performance or modify certain other aspects. Before making any changes, we conduct thorough planning and then the final deliverable is developed
