FAQ

How long does it take to develop software for embedded systems?

 

The time needed for development varies based on the number and complexity of steps involved. Here's an overview of the typical stages in our embedded system development process:
 
  1. Initiation: the first step includes signing NDAs, gathering and clarifying requirements, and estimating the scope of work.
  2. Planning: we analyse requirements, create a timeline, identify risks, plan communication strategies, and assemble the project team.
  3. Development: this phase progresses through defined milestones, encompassing firmware development, prototype creation, and rigorous quality assurance testing. 
  4. Validation: releasing the firmware, preparing technical documentation, and conducting a final review of deliverables.
  5. Release: we bring the project to fruition through the practical implementation of designs, the integration of components, and the deployment of the system to fulfil its intended purpose.
  6. Support and maintenance: we provide ongoing support for the firmware, making improvements to functionality, and updating software development kits (SDKs) or libraries as needed.
 

How much does it cost to develop embedded software?

 

There is no fixed price for our embedded software development services. The cost depends on the amount of work and the time involved. For “turnkey” engineering, the cost depends on the following factors:

  • whether the requirements are fully formed or need to be prepared with our help; 
  • whether the design is ready or needs to be developed by us; 
  • the platforms that need to be supported; 
  • code design (including documentation); 
  • testing and other project documentation. 

In the "team as a service" contract, the cost depends on the time spent on the creation of your embedded system.

 

Where does the work begin? Do you sign an NDA first?

 

First, we sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and clarify the details of the project. Then we draft a business proposal. Once the agreement is signed, our engineers get to work and you can watch your idea come to life!

 

Do you offer quality assurance services for embedded software projects?

 

Quality assurance for embedded software projects is an integral part of our development process. We ensure thorough testing and verification procedures to uphold the highest standards of performance and reliability in our deliverables. Our QA services include functional testing, integration testing, performance testing, and usability testing.

 

How are intellectual property rights handled?

 

Throughout our collaboration, we ensure clear agreements are in place to address ownership and protection of intellectual property. Our standard practice includes signing NDAs to safeguard sensitive information and outlining ownership rights in project contracts. In addition, we will only mention your project on our website and other platforms with your permission.

 

Will you provide documentation for my solution?

 

The documentation on our clients’ projects can be divided into the following groups:
1. Requirements + architecture.
2. Technical description of features.
3. Comments in our code.
4. User documentation.


We do the architecture documentation together with our client. As for the technical documentation, its scope is determined separately, depending on the application complexity and the need for tech support by a third-party team. Timing and cost increase accordingly.
