Embedded Software Expertise at your fingertips
Leading-Edge Firmware & Software Development

Your Agile Software Development Team

At Ignys we have a wide range of projects and customers who are at different stages of their product development lifecycles. This requires different development styles to be applied.

For example, a project that requires embedded hardware and software design will have both waterfall development and agile methodologies applied.

Helping you achieve your end goal, one sprint at a time

Hardware development covers project stages such as defining, designing, developing and releasing. 

Meanwhile, once the hardware has passed the bring-up stage, our embedded software experts can plan an Agile software development methodology to define sprints and outcomes, where we work with you to achieve your overall goal.

Careful design

Robust requirements are key for firmware and software development.

For instance you need careful modular design, version control and rigorous test regimes in order confirm the functionality of each function, module and the overall system.

More than code

Software engineering is more than just writing code.

Firstly it begins with:

  • Determining the structure of the code,
  • As well as its abstraction from the underlying hardware,
  • Including module testing and integration.

FAQs

Why is software architecture important?

When software is properly architected you can separately test and update discrete modules, add additional functionality when it is needed and switch to a different platform quickly and easily. You can also change parts (such as transceivers or display screens) without system wide impact.

Carefully architected code is much lower risk, effort, and cost.

Why are software libraries useful?

Many devices come with pre-written code, software libraries, to speed up and de-risk development.  What’s more we find software libraries to be of variable quality from our many years of collective experience in software development. 

Software libraries are often created as a demonstration tool for use within tight use cases, rather than as a fully functional and robust library. 

As a result, we find that each provided library must be treated with caution and be fully tested before using. 

Carefully architected code is much lower risk, effort, and cost.

Why do software libraries need to be treated with caution?

Issues can occur if software libraries aren’t checked. This is due to the fact that many libraries are incomplete. In other words they come with their own issues which must be dealt with to avoid the final product carrying those issues through.

What is version control, and why should I use it?

All software development is kept within version control. This means we know exactly what module and code are within each software release.

In addition, new features can be implemented and tested before full integration within the main code.

What options do I have for intellectual property protection?

Intellectual property protection is an important part of protecting your commercial interests – it prevents copycat products, generates additional revenue streams, and can boosting your brand profile.

Coming in a range of forms, intellectual property protection can take the form of copyright, design right, trademarks, registered designs, patents, and more.

What programming languages does Ignys use?

C Language
Used for micro-controller-based projects. This is ideal for products of low to medium complexity, powered from batteries with a limited number of communications interfaces.

C++ Language
Object oriented code often within a Linux or Android environment. For larger systems C++ can give a productivity boost.

C# Language
Graphical User Interfaces. This Microsoft language is suited for PC based applications.

Python Language
Scripting language used for automated testing. Python usually requires an operating system.

What are the key coding best practices?

Firmware and software coding must be designed and delivered efficiently and effectively. In other words, the key to reliable product software or firmware, is a structured design approach integrated with robust test processes.

This is essential to delivering a reliable product, and therefore maintain your reputation.
