Embedded Systems Development

With our state-of-the-art development lab and experienced cross-functional team of experts, we stand ready to assist customers with hardware-related or embedded system projects – including devices designed to be connected, as in the Internet of Things.

We specialize in system design, firmware, and driver development. Our combined strength in embedded software development and hardware design and development makes us an ideal partner for product development and embedded or real-time software R&D. Our engineering team can cover the entire product lifecycle, from concept and prototyping to R&D, testing, production and support. There are times when we work closely with in-house hardware teams; or, in some cases, we may assume that function completely.

Digital Signal Processors (DSPs)

The First Line team has implemented numerous DSP solutions for industrial, consumer and communication applications. We have built embedded systems using DSP devices from a broad range of manufacturers, including Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, Freescale, ARM, Cortex-M, and others.

Our DSP services include development of algorithms, multimedia codecs, frameworks and middleware for image processing, video analytics, multimedia streaming, and various biotelemetry applications. Client projects have also required our expertise in electro-magnetic signal processing, GSM Wi-Fi, and the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) algorithms. The result is reliable connectivity and internal stability.

Power Management

Designing a high-performing embedded system requires efficiency in managing complex interactions between hardware and software. To achieve effective power management, the First Line team closely integrates the hardware and software development processes once they have a deep understanding of the target device’s functionality and each use case scenario.

When a device has the potential for connecting with many types of devices and using battery power for extended periods of time, First Line utilizes the industry standard – Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 – to achieve power efficiency.

First Line team members utilize systemic thinking and cross-functional skills to meet both the functional and power requirements of embedded system development projects.

We welcome the opportunity to explore how the First Line team’s knowledge and expertise can be instrumental in achieving the business goals of your embedded system development project. Contact us today.
