EMBEDDED SYSTEMS

Embedded Systems are highly specialized hardware-driven real-time processing and control systems for various technical contexts.
This involves special sensors like IMUs or smart cameras, avionics/space on-board devices, automotive on-board ECUs & devices, control devices, smart textile devices, MEMs based devices, special purpose hi-perf multi-DSPs devices…


Microtecna owns the necessary expertise to design and develop the right solution for your application.
We are able to:

  • Perform analysis of your needs, choose the right technology and design the optimal system for you

  • Develop all the necessary electronics and core hardware

  • Develop or port BSPs, RTOSs, kernels and low-level active/passive real-time layers

  • Develop embedded applications, algorithms, advanced signal processing and control operations, interfacing with Matlab-generated or higher-level layers

  • Develop by using languages ranging from Assembly to C/C++ or ADA

  • Validate the full life-cycle (including the testing phase) depending on applicable certification or norms

  • Manage the industrialization processes and provide related support
