Robust software systems always do exactly—and only—what they are designed to do. That means zero side channel vulnerabilities (Meltdown, Spectre). Zero privilege escalation attacks (Stuxnet, automotive Hacks, USB exfiltration). Zero critical safety failures. Such systems are achievable when they are comprehensible.
There is a tremendous amount at stake when procuring software platforms. Functionality, performance, compliance, sustainment, reuse, license restrictions, and transitive OEM license costs must all be considered, making it tremendously difficult to determine whether a platform can meet your project goals or not. From CPU architecture, to firmware, I/O services, standard APIs, and certification evidence, layers of complexity abound. Far too often, embedded projects agree to contracts before realizing that not all design and legal challenges have been effectively resolved.
It is critical to us that we understand your specific goals, target environments, and unique design challenges. We promise to be transparent—to be forthcoming about technical gaps and to only provide recommendations that have been thoroughly verified. We have zero interest in creating added challenges for our customers through dishonest and/or haphazard business practices and will work tirelessly to deliver unparalleled lifetime value at fair and competitive cost.
