Embedded Software

From Linux drivers to real-time operating systems, the integration, testing, and verification of embedded software is often the most challenging and time consuming element of the product development process. krtkl’s intimate relationship with embedded hardware means potential mismatches between desired functionality and implementation are eliminated before they arise.

We know what it takes to integrate an embedded system from end to end. Below are just some of the ways we can help your project succeed.

  • real-time systems (RTOS)
  • fault-tolerant systems
  • data acquisition systems
  • network programming
  • digital signal processing
  • ARM Cortex architecture
  • FPGA (VHDL, Verilog)
  • asymmetric processing
  • Embedded Linux, ROS
  • iOS applications
  • motor, actuator control
  • power management
  • sensor fusion
  • A/V encoding/decoding
  • graphical user interfaces

FPGA IP

Field-programmable gate arrays – or FPGAs – represent the ultimate marriage of hardware and software. Software-reconfigurable hardware opens up applications and levels of performance otherwise only available by way of custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) or complex arrangements of heterogenous silicon.

FPGA intellectual property (IP) cores are used for everything from accelerating video codecs to implementing hardware-based modular redundancies. As evidenced by our FPGA-based hardware platforms, krtkl develops FPGA IP cores of all shapes and sizes and ensures their compatibility and operation with higher-level, software-based systems.

Whether you’re developing a new system or porting a legacy code base, we will make sure the process goes smoothly and results in outputs that are reliable and maintainable – even if you don’t have an FPGA engineer on staff.

  • requirements definition
  • system integration
  • production planning
  • project management
  • system modeling
  • statics and dynamics
  • reliability analysis
  • optimization
  • electrical and mechanical
  • software engineering
  • control engineering
  • safety and security
