Embedded Software Development
Timely and cost-effective embedded software development is critical to the success of many projects. The quality of the embedded software in your product, whether it is for entertainment purposes or for keeping people safe in a transport system, can have a major impact on both the time to market and the resultant sales and publicity. That is why at ASE we have expertise in both project management and embedded systems’ engineering, that we bring together to focus on projects, enabling us to repeatedly meet demanding timescales and requirements.
Our main expertise is in embedded systems, especially embedded software development, delivered as either fully bespoke or customized software solutions. We operate in a wide range of market sectors, as diverse as safety critical railway systems and digital TV set top boxes, allowing us to bring experience from one sector’s solutions to others that may face similar challenges but in different circumstances and products. A major benefit in engaging ASE to handle your embedded software development is that we always focus on the reliability and longevity of our software, providing both peace of mind and long-term savings for our clients.
Your needs, and those of your clients, drive the way we work with you to develop your specification. Our extensive experience means that we can work with you to produce specifications that really do describe what you want your system to do. If you already have a detailed implementation specification, we can review it with you, discuss it in technical detail with you and sort out those little details that can so easily cause issues later. If your specification is an idea or a view of what you want as an end-result, we can create technical specifications for systems that will deliver the functionality that you need; and we can communicate in English, as well as tech-speak!
You will find that we can really add value to your project if you involve us at this stage.
Unusually for the software development sector, you will receive a whole year’s guarantee for the software that we develop for you to an agreed specification. We can offer this without hesitation because we build our software to last. Yes, we are proud of our quality, but it also means that many of our clients come to us again and again when they are creating new products.
You will receive ongoing development and in-field support. This can include updating firmware to cope with new hardware or operating systems, or new feature requirements. An area in which we frequently offer assistance is type testing; creating test rigs for evaluation clients’ equipment during or after testing and providing consultancy during the test process.
If your embedded software development project is not going quite to plan, we will arrange for one of our most skilled engineers to help you find the most optimal solutions. This is an area in which we really excel; time and time again, we have rescued struggling projects, whether that means finding solutions to challenging problems with firmware or unravelling the complexities of old, undocumented code. Quite simply, we have people who are exceptionally good at fixing software.
