Firmware is the program code that runs on every electronic device. Firmware is often more complex than software running on a computer as it interacts with the specific electronics within the device.
At EEA, we have vast experience with firmware development on a range of various electronic devices. Currently there are tens of thousands of electronic devices around the world utilising firmware developed here at EEA.
Read on to see how we develop quality Firmware for successful commercial products
When developing firmware, it's important to understand that it differs for every device.
The most critical phase of firmware design is first understanding device requirements. Once requirements are known, drivers need to be developed to allow interaction between sensors and electronic subsystems within the device.
Another aspect to be considered is future firmware upgradability.
Use of specialised tools and detailed knowledge of both electronics and software is required to effectively develop firmware.
EEA has all the resources at its disposal to be able to quickly develop reliable firmware that extracts the most out of your products.
Just like our proven electronics designs, we also have produced working Firmware code for these systems.
Leveraging these existing assets can help fast track projects through prototype phase.
If we have not worked with your sub-system before, EEA can develop drivers and firmware from ground up.
In our experience, development of custom programming jigs speeds up the development process, whilst also making it safer.
We develop these jigs as part of the electronics process and then use them for firmware development and continuous integration.
If a firmware update is not thoroughly tested before being released, it can cripple devices in the field and create potential warranty claims.
The use of Continuous Integration for firmware is essential for successful firmware updates to devices in the field.
Our processes ensure every firmware update is thoroughly tested before being pushed out.
EEA has vast experience developing various types of firmware. These being:
- Bare Metal firmware
- State Machine based firmware
- Scheduler based firmware
- Real Time Operating System's (RTOS)
- Embedded Linux on Device
If you have a new or pre-existing firmware project you need help with, please don’t hesitate to contact us
We would be very happy to provide advice, design and development services as you need
More About EEA
Element Engineering Australia was founded in 2010 by Ayrton Sue primarily as a Mechanical Engineering Consultancy specializing in advanced structural analysis.
Today, EEA has Mechanical, Electronic and Software Engineering teams and services
Product Design is Our Speciality
EEA's specialty has become development of products from ground up, with our clients.
With boiler-making background we can undertake design through manufacture of mechanical structures. And with our electronic and software skills, we can build IoT Systems.
With the introduction of specialized electronics engineering and software development teams, EEA can develop mechanical products that are monitored and actuated by smart electronic and software systems.
EEA aim's to build smart mechanical systems to bring the products we work on to the forefront of their domains.
