What is embedded firmware development?
Firmware is a specific type of software running on a chip installed in a hardware device, which is called an embedded system. Embedded firmware development is the creation of such specific software programs for a particular device.
What tools do you use to develop firmware?
There is a wide range of tools we can use to develop firmware. Generally, we need an assembler, an emulator, a debugger, and a compiler. For each project, we select the most appropriate options depending on requirements, goals, and other conditions.
What is your usual approach to firmware development?
We adhere to the customer-oriented approach while developing embedded projects. This means that our team supports continuous communication with the client during the entire development process to keep the client’s requirements in check and make adjustments when needed.
What programming languages do you use for firmware development?
What is the difference between firmware and embedded software?
Firmware is a mediator between hardware and software in an embedded system. It is programmed on a memory chip and performs low-level tasks. Embedded software is more sophisticated and is responsible for high-level functions and requires an operating system.
