After the IoT hardware for your IoT device is developed, Thinxtream can provide Microprocessor & Microcontroller based IoT firmware design, development and testing for your IoT devices. Leveraging our advanced IoT embedded systems expertise, Thinxtream can deliver board support package, network connectivity, device drivers and power management to enable your Connected Products and Smart Services vision.
We provide the board support package as part of the IoT firmware. The board support package comprises board bring-up and validation of the IoT hardware prototype to ensure that all board components are working, peripherals are connected correctly and the board is up and running.
After the board support package is complete, we enable network connectivity for the IoT device as part of the IoT firmware. Based on your requirements, the IoT device can communicate to the external world via a mobile app using Bluetooth or BLE, or a Wi-Fi router in the network or directly to the Internet using 4G/LTE, LoRaWAN, etc.
In addition to the board support package and network connectivity, we develop device drivers as part of the IoT firmware. Device drivers are used to drive the peripherals, including sensors and actuators.
Along with the other IoT firmware, we also implement power management utilities for your IoT devices, which are crucial to reduce power usage and enhance battery life.
IoT firmware is at the heart of your smart, connected devices and connected products. Embedded firmware enables smart operations, edge intelligence, drivers for various hardware interfaces, device to cloud connectivity and device security. Read our IoT and Firmware White Paper to understand more about the role of firmware in IoT devices.
Is your IoT firmware solution meeting your device goals?
Connect with us today to build smart, secure, edge intelligent, low powered firmware for your connected devices.
Once the IoT hardware and IoT firmware are complete, Thinxtream can also design, develop and test IoT embedded applications for your IoT devices. Leveraging our advanced IoT embedded systems expertise, we can implement edge intelligence, device to app connectivity, device to cloud connectivity, device security, social IoT and custom embedded applications to realize your Connected Products and Smart Services vision.
Based on your requirements, we can equip your IoT devices or field gateways with the right software to make them edge-intelligent.
To interface your IoT devices with mobile apps for device interaction, IoT firmware updates or connecting to the cloud, we can design and implement Device to App IoT solutions based on your requirements.
To connect your IoT devices to the cloud, we can design and implement Device to Cloud IoT solutions based on your requirements.
To ensure security, we can implement the secure provisioning of your IoT devices, secure connectivity and data transmission between your IoT devices and the app/cloud, and secure data protection in the cloud during processing and storage.
We can enhance your IoT devices with social IoT, whereby different IoT enabled devices can collaborate and offer/requests services on behalf of their owners by discovering other objects/services offered by other IoT devices in the network.
We can also implement custom IoT firmware applications for a variety of devices like computer peripherals, IoT gateways, etc. using Android™ and Linux®.
An Electronic Tools Company leveraged Thinxtream’s firmware expertise for their first Smart, Connected Product. Using the Espressif ESP8266 Wi-Fi Microcontroller with full TCP/IP stack, we successfully implemented IoT firmware on a small footprint device with low power consumption. The firmware enabled features included secure device to cloud connectivity over WiFi®, updating remote device status, and OTA device firmware upgrade. Read the Case Study.
Is your IoT device connected to the cloud and apps?
Connect with us today to integrate your IoT devices your cloud and apps.
Thinxtream can design, develop and test IoT field gateways. We can also enable the connectivity of your legacy devices to your IoT solution and offer Connected Products and Smart Services to your current customers.
To manage legacy devices, or heterogeneous devices with disparate interfaces, or devices with light specifications, we can implement custom built field gateway solutions or PC-based software field gateway solutions. IoT field gateways can aggregate, filter and transform data prior to sending it to the cloud. They can be edge intelligent, increasing local decision making and reducing communication bandwidth costs.
We can incorporate legacy devices into your IoT solution in multiple ways based on the technical specifications of the devices, whether they have Internet connectivity, and your IoT solution requirements – with add-on daughter boards to your legacy device, or custom external hardware, or IoT field gateways.
