Systematic Consulting Group offers unparalleled expertise to make sure your next embedded project is a success. We can take you from concept to finished product, or help you at any step during the process. Our large partner network guarantees you will receive the best technology and prices throughout the design process.
We start by determining the right approach for your organization at a hardware level. Based on client needs and use cases, this could be a system built entirely from off-the- shelf components, a full custom solution or a hybrid approach. Cost, project volumes, schedule impacts and maintainability are all considered during this phase.
Next we formulate a strategy to determine whether your system will need an OS or RTOS, or neither, and what type of Board Support Package (BSP) will be needed to interface the software to the hardware. From there we drill down to discuss pros and cons, including licensing and maintainability of the different approaches. We have experience bringing up Windows Embedded, Linux, Android and a variety of RTOSes, on custom and off-the-shelf hardware.
When it comes to writing software, we use a top-down approach to convert your software specifications to high-level, easily manageable modules that can be documented and designed to maximize their functionality and testability. We have extensive experience in both object-oriented and standard languages, as well as in creating code that can be easily ported to a number of hardware platforms and operating systems. During this phase we write drivers, backend software, middleware, and/or frontend software, depending on the product needs. We meticulously administer reviews and manage schedules during this stage to assure your code is completed on time, with as few bugs as possible.
Finally, we make sure your product exceeds expectations by designing test plans or fully automated test suites, as necessary. This will ensure that your device performs correctly at every level and, more importantly, that it does exactly what it was designed to do.
