Embedded Systems

Zone 24×7 has surpassed all of my expectations in regard to their insight, knowledge, and support of a project that has had its share of turns in the road. I am impressed with the dedication, versatility and commitment that their team has demonstrated. They act more like dedicated employees than consultants.

Client challenges

  • 1

    Lack of a single team with diverse skills required to develop a complete hardware product impact cost and time to market.

  • 2

    Inflexible product teams struggle to adapt with today’s fluid and somewhat chaotic nature of high tech product development.

  • 3

    Insufficient post deployment support and maintenance upon project completion.

  • 4

    Sustaining simultaneous programs to support existing products while introducing new products through a program of innovation.

How we help our clients

  1. Requirements Development

    • Requirements range from ‘merely an idea’ to ‘step by step implementation instructions’.We help clients to prioritize and expand them further.
  2. Hardware Design

    • We offer extensive expertise in Microcontroller and Mixed Signal SOCs and Embedded Microprocessor based SOCs. We also specialize in battery technologies (Li-ion, Li-po, BMS designs for robotic and automobile applications) and motor technologies (DC, 3 phase BLDC, Motor control system designs for industrial, robotic and automobile applications).
      We produce future proof product designs to cater to emerging needs and also extend hardware re-design services for existing products with obsolete parts.
  3. Firmware Design and Development

    • We claim extensive expertise over 15+ years in firmware design for payment industry. Our expertise extends to Hardware + Firmware level payment security, Hardware communication protocols (CAN, I2C, UART, SPI).
      We also offer automobile grade firmware development services (MISRA compliant), diagnostic firmware (Factory testing hardware) and firmware optimization for performance, space, power consumption with strict adherence to best engineering practices.
  4. SDK / Application Design and Development

    • We offer SDKs and application design, development for Windows, Linux & Android platforms, Linux driver development and porting services, OS porting, customizing services for embedded systems.
  5. Payments Industry Expertise

    • For more than 15 years, we have partnered with leading payment terminal manufacturers in providing consultation and engineering service in secure payment device standard ( PCI ) and PCI certification process support.
      We have provided secure hardware designs with secure processor, secure memory, secure touch-screen / pin pad based designs and tamper detection.
      In terms of secure firmware, we have provided secure boot-loaders and firmware, Linux kernel security, key management & crypto operations.We have worked on payment kernel integration with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, JCB, Amex, UnionPay etc. We have developed emulators and assured compatibility against devices from diverse manufacturers & environments.
  6. Technology Proof of Concepts (PoCs)

    • We help our clients develop PoCs under constrained budgets, timeframes and offer component selection and evaluation service(component engineering).
  7. Schematic / PCB Layout

    • Our CAD engineers support schematic design and laying out PCBs with extensive expertise in layout design for RF circuits, EMC EMI compliance, multi-layer PCBs (4, 6, 8, .. layers) and achieve fast PCB manufacturing through partnerships in China and Taiwan.
  8. Rapid Prototyping

    • Dimensions of the PCBs and their placement within an enclosure are decisive factors in enclosure design. Our CAD engineers help our customers to take care of both these aspects. We have in-house 3D prototyping facilities and also work with partners in Sri-Lanka, China and Taiwan for fast enclosure manufacturing
  9. Legacy Support

    • We support legacy products with field updates, bug fixes and customized features.
  10. OEM Partnerships with Leading Manufacturers

    • Deliver market ready products with the support of our OEM partners in China and Taiwan

How our clients benefit

  • We are a team which routinely and proudly walk the extra mile for our client. Our average customer lifetime is 5 years while our longest standing customers have been on board since 2007.
  • As a result, many of our clients entrust us with their multi year strategic product roadmaps. Due to this close collaboration and intimate product knowledge our teams typically end up working with our clients even after mergers and acquisitions.
  • Availability of a broad skill set across Software, Hardware and Firmware under one roof. This results in efficient execution of projects.
  • We are more than willing to work with our clients to support urgent and sudden needs of their customers.
