Custom Embedded Software Development
Embedded software development incorporates software written to control machines or devices that are not typically thought of as computers. New end-user demands are driving the need for more intelligent and connected products, placing more importance on a complete inter-connected embedded system.
Prolucid’s deep expertise in embedded software development ensures that we can tackle the most complex applications. Our ability to rapidly prototype and utilize industry standard development modules helps to accelerate development, while targeting the right hardware for the application.
We start by taking the time to thoroughly understand your system’s hardware components and functionality. Our team of engineers will collaborate to ensure that your low-level hardware and data interface, including hardware controls, data processing, and networking, integrates seamlessly with the user interface and supports end-user adoption.
Prolucid designs, develops and deploys embedded software applications for
- Microcontrollers running bare-metal or an RTOS
- Embedded Linux
Accelerate Embedded Development with Prolucid E2C
For many applications custom designed embedded hardware is required due to various constraints. We work with our customers to ensure that the correct processor and architecture is selected to meet the application needs. Using our E2C Framework as the platform allows the team of engineers and programmers to start a project based on the already proven solution with the required set of interfaces, operating system support, drivers and application software. This cuts the time of developing, testing and debugging the product’s software and hardware, as well as its maintenance and further development.

National Instruments Embedded Platforms
Using NI embedded hardware and the NI LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture provides an off-the-shelf platform to solve demanding control and monitoring tasks. This NI platform-based approach allows for rapid development of embedded systems. Much of our embedded development is built on the following NI embedded platforms:
NI CompactRIO – CompactRIO combines an open embedded architecture with small size, extreme ruggedness, hot-swappable industrial I/O modules, and is powered by the NI LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture.
NI sbRIO – NI Single-Board RIO platform combines a real-time processor, reconfigurable FPGA, and analog and digital I/O on an embedded, single board programmed with NI LabVIEW.
NI FlexRIO – NI FlexRIO product family provides flexible, customizable I/O to form a high-performance, reconfigurable instrument powered by LabVIEW FPGA.
Xilinx Zynq System-on-Chip
Using the Xilinx Zynq System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture provides an off-the-shelf platform combining the flexibility and efficiency of an FPGA coupled with a powerful ARM microprocessor to solve complex analytics and data processing applications. This approach allows for rapid prototyping and development of embedded systems.
Prolucid is an expert with the Xilinx Zynq platform helping many of our customers build and realize their application on-top of it.
