EQware is more than just a collection of talented software engineers. We have proven ourselves to be high-quality system engineers and product developers. Our skills represent our team's combined experiences and education.
EQware is ready with the skills to help you bring your product to market quickly and with full assurance of quality. Put us to work for you!
Extensive Product Experience — Engage with EQware and find someone who understands how to create a product. We can easily interface with your marketing, sales, production, service, and engineering teams. We can help you make the key decisions critical to a smooth, well directed, development and deployment of your product. And we can work at any level to reduce your development cycle.
Software Languages, Tools, and Technologies — The engineering world has blossomed with new and exciting technologies to make your product the best it can be. EQware works with all of the top software languages and IDEs to bring your embedded product to market efficiently and effectively.
Operating Systems — From the bootloaders, to the kernel, and the rest of your operating system, EQware has been there. If your product needs an operating system, EQware has a wealth of experience and can bring operating systems—even custom ones—to new platforms. Our engineers have created, ported, and extended numerous device drivers for many popular embedded OSs and nearly every category of device. We are ready to assist you in all of your product's operating system needs.
Multimedia — Portable multimedia devices continue to emerge in the market place. EQware has the experience to harness the performance and low power capabilities you will need to create a winning product. Whether you need special hardware, OS, device driver, or codec support, EQware can help.
Communication Protocols — Many of our past projects have involved getting one piece of hardware to talk to another. We have implemented existing protocols and designed new ones, for both wired and wireless environments. We support connectivity for every environment: from modules on the same board to wireless devices on networks with thousands of nodes. We can connect your mobile app to your embedded device.
Critical Product Features — Most, if not all, embedded products have special functional needs required to differentiate your product from others. Just getting hardware to work is one thing; getting the most out of it is something else. We are proven experts, with the patience and know-how to make your hardware perform to its full potential. Battery life of your product can be critical; often your product must be able to have a shelf life of many months. This takes extra care in hardware and software design to make sure “off” is “off to the greatest extent possible.” Shorter development cycles are critical to success, but most often this means reduced quality assurance. Luckily, it is now possible to upgrade your products firmware given web-awareness. EQware understands the hardware and software needs and has proven experience in helping define and implement these abilities for your products.
Software Build Systems — A major part of creating the software of a product is reproducibility—you must be able to repeat the build of your software or there will be quality issues. We have extensive experience at using many different build systems, for example poky and yocto. These and other build systems can make sure your bootloaders, kernels, run-times, applications, installers, updaters—will be the same today, and tomorrow.
Quality Assurance — EQ stands for Embedded Quality, and it's no idle boast. We have extensive experience at producing quality embedded products. We can provide your product with whatever level of QA you need, from basic module-level test up through full regression suites based on custom test systems, production testing and tools, or anything in between.
Test Tools — Product development has many needs for special tools—for marketing/sales force “what-if” tools, for developers themselves, for quality assurance personnel, and finally for production and servicing technicians. EQware understands all these needs and can support whatever tools you need.
Board Designs — EQware can design the electronic sub-assemblies to meet your product's physical and marketing specifications, and we can aid you in creating those specs. We have done all phases of development, from prototype implementation through hardware validation and hand-off of the finished design to manufacturing. We pride ourselves on our Hardware Development Support.
