Our embedded hardware development services

Rapidsoft Systems offers a range of embedded hardware development services including:

  • Hardware design (Schematic capture to Proto build)
  • Hardware abstraction layer design for interoperability with kernels under various operating systems (Win CE,Embedded Linux, QNX, etc.)
  • Board design Device driver development
  • Middleware development
  • Network management interfaces and network utility development
  • Remote monitoring and diagnostics tool development
  • Protocol stack development and integration Proven experience in multiple platforms We create modern devices based on microprocessors, systems-on-chip (SoC), FPGA, DSP, and MCU.

Strong ARM Microcontrollers like PIC18F series, 8051, Renesas M16C and NXP ARM7

We have partnered with major PCB manufacturers assembly houses to offer high quality prototype PCBs. We start by developing schematic diagrams based on modern electronic components, and then develop printed circuit boards in accordance with IPC standards. We finally create and test the system-on-chip designs to meet your requirements.

Experienced resources and world-class infrastructure

Our offshore development centers in Mysore and Bangalore, India employ some of the best engineers in the industry with over 10 years of average experience. Our delivery model is such that the client gets to interact with our project managers at the onsite proximity centers. This makes the development process transparent and cost-effective. Our offshore development centers are well-equipped with all the latest industry-standard equipment and development applications that make the process faster.

Our solutions cater to the need of OEMs, system integrators, high-tech device manufacturers, and independent software vendors. Our teams have experience in working on embedded hardware projects for clients across several industry domains including industrial automation, control systems, wireless, consumer electronics, and multimedia among others.

Hardware Development (HW)

Design and development of various digital devices using programming logic and microcontrollers, Electronic Devices Development (Schematic Diagrams, Printed Circuit Boards, Soc-Based Devices, Proprietary Algorithms), e.g. signaling /warning/ monitoring devices (cars, houses, equipment, wireless modules, Network Servers, Network Cards, Medical Devices etc.), automated production systems, Security Systems, Wireless Systems, Biometric Identification Systems.

Schematic Diagrams

Designing digital and digital-analog schematic diagrams based on modern electronic components. Implementation of high-speed interfaces (Ethernet, USB, PCI), integration with wireless data transfer modules (WiFi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, RF-ID Interfaces, GSM/GPRS) and other hardware interfaces.

Printed Circuit Boards Layout and Design

Designing multilayer printed circuit boards of Class 5 and above, using BGA components, controlling impedance. All boards are designed in accordance with the IPC standards, adhere to design-for-test (DFT) and design-for-manufacture (DFM) requirements, analyze signal integrity (SI), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and thermal conditions throughout the entire design cycle.

SOC-Based Devices

The key area is design of digital devices based on low-power systems-on-chip. The GUI in such devices can be implemented both via a high-resolution LCD (TFT, STN, sensor panel) and remotely via a Web-interface. Portability/Mobility are ensured through effective energy saving modes.

Embedded Software for Digital Devices/Equipment

Software development for digital microprocessor-controlled systems/ solutions (MPU), system-on-chip (SoC), digital signal processors (DSP) and microcontrollers (MCU). Usage of embedded operating systems (Linux, eCos), schedulers and real-time OSes (custom RTOS). Software porting from 8-bit/16-bit controllers to 32-bit microprocessors. Implementation of digital signal processing algorithms for digital signal processors.

Complete Board Support Package (BSP)

Preparation of board support packages (BSP), including initial bootloaders (U-Boot, RedBoot), device drivers, protocol stacks, system interfaces (PCI/ISA, I2C/SPI/SSP, Ethernet, LCD STN/TFT, USB, WiFi), on-board diagnostic tests, file system images, scripts to build a distribution.

OS Linux Distributions for Target Platforms

OS Linux distributions for various microprocessor architectures (e.g. ARM, x86, PowerPC) and for industrial computers (CompactPCI, PC104/ PC104-plus). Distribution optimization for custom solutions: multimedia systems, data storage systems etc.
