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.
Twenty-first century products are normally network-aware, more often than not employing some form of wireless communications. EQware has been deeply involved in wireless solutions for many years, from early paging protocols to the latest BLE developments. Many customers now require that iOS and Android devices work seamlessly with their products, using various wireless technologies and cloud support. EQware has the skill set to handle all of your networking and wireless needs.
Network Stacks — EQware has experience at every layer of the network stack. From low-level NIC interfaces to IEEE 802 specifications, we have you covered. EQware engineers spent several years developing a proprietary one-way communications protocol based on the layered OSI model. This gave us a unique perspective on the popular TCP/IP and Bluetooth protocols which followed. Timely sensor sampling and reduced power conservation can lead to unique solutions such as custom 2.4 GHz protocols.
WiFi & WiFi Direct — Do you have a device that needs WiFi support? Are you blocked by a critical networking bug? We can analyze the system, and push the WiFi communications to their limits. For example, a WiFi module in your product might require better firmware, or perhaps a driver patch from the public domain needs to be ported and tested. WiFi Direct can be a good solution for passing moderately sized pieces of data peer-to-peer. Our developers understand how to leverage various network stacks, and arrive at reliable, simple solutions. EQware has also worked on a popular open-source router, specifically in filtering packets.
Bluetooth & BLE — Bluetooth and BLE are becoming ever more popular. EQware has strong skills in designing entirely new Bluetooth/BLE features from the ground up on various platforms, and we're ready to assist with debugging and testing to get your product streamlined and stable. We know BLE in great detail, and we have developed BLE firmware for various vendors and SDKs, and BLE applications for several computer and cell phone operating systems. EQware can also support your audio streaming needs over Bluetooth EDR.
Packet Radio — Sometimes you need a more creative approach for your wireless project. EQware can design and implement custom radio protocols that get your devices talking to each other seamlessly. Our designs are tailored to your priorities and hardware, and we provide extensive documentation so that you have all your bases covered. We've worked on custom ICs for packet demodulation and time-accurate framing, as well as on soft radios for extreme timing and location accuracy.
Zigbee — The Zigbee specification opens up new possibilities for low-power mesh networks. EQware can help you harness its features, bringing down your product costs without sacrificing quality. We've prototyped and studied these mesh systems on occasion, albeit without ever actually finding a customer who wanted to go this way.
