Embedded Software Development

Need to use IoT capabilities for your hardware product? Having experts with over 25 years of experience in embedded software development, Leobit can help you find a powerful and effective solution.

Embedded Software Development for IoT Products and Wearables

IoT has changed the way consumers perceive software products and shaped new requirements for the manufacturers of controllers, home appliances, wearables, and other devices. Modern hardware cannot exist without embedded software that ensures its operation and supports the necessary IoT functionality. Consumers now expect Bluetooth, BLE, Wi-Fi, and other wireless capabilities both from industrial equipment and the most basic home appliances. Smart devices have won the market and found their place in modern homes. This leaves tech companies with no choice but to adapt their product expanding their IoT capabilities.

Thus, any hardware producer needs a reliable software development partner with sufficient expertise in IoT embedded systems, Linux, C/C++, and various software development tools. Leobit delivers outsourcing services for embedded solutions to assist such manufacturers in the production of innovative smart devices and equipment.

IoT embedded systems: Industry overview

Today, IoT covers almost all domains, from automotive giants to healthcare providers and home automation. Although there are no customer size limitations, outsourcing of embedded software development is usually requested by small and medium enterprises or startups. They often decide to entrust their embedded systems to a third-party software development team to cut expenditures and increase the efficiency of the product. This way, outsourcing IoT solutions allows them to benefit from the expertise of a dedicated tech team without the need to hire internal staff.

Embedded software / IoT solutions offer a number of valuable benefits: 

  • Dedicated tasks. Embedded solutions perform one clear task. From the very beginning, a software development team creates functionality to support the primary goal of the hardware. This ensures seamless integration of a physical device with embedded software required for high-quality hardware and controllers.
  • Software and physical stability. Since the number of operations performed by embedded software is limited, it doesn’t require continuous updates or hardware changes. Embedded systems are also less prone to any errors or crashes.
  • Work in demanding conditions. Embedded software is the only right solution for those who plan to manufacture an IoT device that will operate in harsh conditions. The development of such critical software must include an R&D stage when all the functionality is adapted to withstand the future working environment.
  • Improved system hardware. Embedded software is not only about performing the basic functions of controllers, but also about improving hardware to make it more effective, convenient, and durable. The focus on a single task allows you to adapt the hardware reducing the system load and improving its speed and performance.
  • Cost-effectiveness. Hardware specification requirements become much simpler due to the use of embedded software. Among others, such devices don’t require frequent updates, take less space, and save energy. And the growing demand for ‘smart’ products means your end-customers will consider the embedded component as an important differentiator and will be more likely to choose your product over your competitors.
  • Customization. In case you need to slightly modify hardware, a software development team can easily adapt the existing embedded software to meet your new needs. They can also assist with R&D validation to define whether the offered changes are necessary.

The listed benefits of wireless embedded software prove its effectiveness for advanced hardware solutions, controllers, and smart devices. At Leobit, we can develop an optimum critical software based on the characteristics of the hardware you already have or are going to manufacture. Leobit’s team also provides a range of other software development and R&D services to maintain, support, or integrate embedded software.

Leobit’s Embedded Software Development Service 

Critical software development is a complex process consisting of numerous R&D stages and procedures. Large enterprises, SMEs, and startups may have absolutely different goals and needs depending on their domain and budget. Based on this, Leobit offers a broad range of services that cover the entire process of embedded software development, implementation, and integration. Leobit’s team has gathered leading IoT experts that power their R&D skills with advanced software development tools to provide the top-notch software development experience.

Leobit’s team is ready to become your backup during the following embedded software development stages:

Maintenance/Support

Once an embedded system is developed, it requires constant professional support and maintenance. For a hardware manufacturer, it may be difficult to master a Linux or RTOS system and the underlying embedded technology, including C/C++, to ensure flawless operation of its products. Leobit’s team is ready to handle these tasks for Linux-based embedded solutions or any other type of embedded software. 

Software Improvement

It may happen that your current embedded software needs some considerable improvements or doesn’t allow you to draw the maximum benefit from your hardware. Leobit continuously conducts rigorous checks of the critical software it develops and can start managing your existing project to rehabilitate it. After the bug fixing stage, you can continue with software maintenance or rely on considerable Leobit’s expertise to develop new advanced functionality.

Minimum viable product

In case you have come up with an idea that requires some validation, Leobit can provide you with R&D services. The company will research your business needs to offer a Linux based or other suitable solution which will be further developed into a minimum viable product. You will get a chance to test how end consumers respond to your hardware and detect what elements need improvement.

Prototype

After the MVP is developed, embedded system hardware needs to go through the prototype creation stage. At this point, Leobit provides QA and development services to eliminate any flaws that could have appeared during the software development process. A prototype is necessary to evaluate the future operation of the product, no matter whether you produce industrial controllers, wearable devices, or home appliances.

Golden sample

When the IoT embedded software is perfected, Leobit assists the manufacturer with the software development related tasks during the production of a golden sample. Industrial and automotive embedded software is a very demanding field with numerous standards and limitations, so it’s crucial to rely on the experienced software development provider.
