Embedded Software Development

At Ascenten, we provide next-generation embedded software development and engineering services to our customers that satisfy their specific business requirements. Ascenten has a rich expertise in developing firmware and embedded applications for a wide range of products including embedded C programming. We use our DSP expertise and IPs to develop fast embedded middleware, rich applications and interactive GUI. Our embedded expertise covers embedded c programming, application development and optimization of a wide array of popular RTOS platforms and proprietary micro-kernels, processor dependent real time assembly coding as well as real time multi-threaded applications.

Embedded Software Development

Success Story
  • Implemented DLMS stack and metering objects in an existing code while replacing a bulky communications standard albiet retaining its functionalities and security features.
  • Ascenten was engaged in emergency by a customer to deliver quickly as the sales deadlines were very close.
  • Ascenten successfully delivered working and tested code for an ultra low power micro controller which included porting the DLMS objects for smart meter reading and GSM for wireless communication
  • Engagement: Onsite & Offsite, 24 weeks
