Let ChippSoft start you out with a product strategy, building components and libraries that are reusable. We have helped clients reuse firmware across similar product lines - making the next device move to market faster as the project family progresses and grows. It takes time to build a solid firmware base. With a reusable firmware platform, it's a fraction of that time to market. Deliver new products and extend your product family without having to reinvent the wheel.


Wireless

Wireless technologies continue to change and evolve rapidly. Picking the right protocols from the base selection can be confusing. There are also regulatory requirements that must be followed to get your product certified. ChippSoft has delivered cellular, wifi, LoRa, Bluetooth, Zigbee, RFID and NFC (Near Field Communication). Using our patterns creates more choices for you.We will help guide you to find the right protocol for your devices. There are many tradeoffs and more than certain your wireless solution will change and evolve as you grow your product line. ChippSoft has delivered wireless solutions for low scale and large scale environments,even thousands in large scale IoT projects.

Hardware

Every IoT project has hardware. Hardware design can be complex and error prone. Unlike firmware the device is finalized when completed and difficult to update. There are ways that make the process less stressful. ChippSoft has many partners with already proven boards that may meet your needs. Need something that is not off the shelf? ChippSoft can build boards from the chip level for your unique project. We work with many Arduino and Nordic partners to get you a board that you can use proven hardware and leverage the advancement others have made. We can also provide custom boards. ChippSoft also has a process to keep your project organized. We can walk you through our process that brings organization and documentation to this time consuming process.
