Data Patterns, with its objective insights and the capability to address challenges in the embedded landscape, is the partner of choice, bringing cutting-edge professional expertise and sharper business sensibility to the table. We work for a range of services and solutions to address various embedded strategies across multiple domains; to add value to the final, finished products based on the following three key differentiators:

End-to-end system offerings:
Data Patterns possesses end-to-end embedded system capability that ranges from simple low powered embedded platforms to complex wide band signal processing embedded hardware, firmware and product development, and a combination when desired. With over three decades of industry expertise, we provide consulting services on systems: spanning concepts, requirements, realization and delivery.

Diverse domain expertise and technology leadership:
Our diverse expertise across various industries such as aerospace, automotive, tests & measurements automation, and communication, provides us with strong knowledge and experience to leverage and apply; for optimal resource utilization and value creation. We are able to leverage wide industry expertise, to reduce the development cycle, and, for leapfrogging results in terms of time to market, for the right engineering to be in place.

Embedded product lifecycle support:
Data Patterns offers an array of services in critical software product domains across the product life cycle. With our maverick approach, we deliver value and innovation that can help achieve engineering cost reduction, product cost optimization and longevity.

The devices driver developments addresses the end devices such as,
  • MIL-STD-1553B drivers
  • ARINC-429, ARINC-717, ARINC-708, ARINC-818 drivers
  • High Speed bus interconnects – Serial Rapid IO (SRIO), PCIe
  • Ethernet Drivers, Network Stack
  • Graphics drivers
  • USB Mass Storage, Keyboard and Mouse drivers
  • Standard I/Os - Digital I/O, Analog I/O, RS-232 / 422 / 485 / UART, SPI, I2C, I2S, CAN, Bluetooth, Zigbee, GPIB, LXI

Data Patterns, with its wide expertise in the embedded software development, can offer its services in developing applications in the following platforms

  • Linux
  • RT Linux, Xenomai
  • VxWorks
  • QNX
  • LynxOS
  • Embedded platform
  • Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / 7

We develop embedded software using Embedded C, C++, GCC, Visual Studio VC++, QT, Embedded QT, Eclipse, Assembly, ADA and other languages, to fit the following platforms and then some, when bespoke deliveries are required:

  • RISC / CISC / Network Processors, Microcontrollers and DSP
  • x86, x64, AMD64 and ARM processors
  • Freescale Power Arch - 74xx, 86xx, QorIQ, PowerQUICC processors
  • SHARC, Blackfin DSPs
  • TMS320 C2000, C6000, OMAP, DaVinci DSPs
  • AVR, AVR32, ATMega, 8051, MSP430, HCS12

Data Patterns adopts, a near precise, process driven Software Development life cycle, aimed at developing flawless safety critical and mission applications. We carry out the verification and validation of functionality and performance at unit level, and integrated system level, in line with the requirements from client. The firmware development includes requirement analysis, software architectural design, and a detailed software design, test plan creation, coding and testing phases, as a standard practice. At every stage of the development the client’s review and approval will be obtained in addition to the in-house design review board. This provides stringent gates, enhancing understanding and cultivating a progressive synergy in our relationship with you, with the intent to eliminate all rework.

In the final analysis, a product can only be as good as the people who produce it. To this end, we deploy personnel experienced in a plethora of software tools. A sampling of tools that we use in the design and simulation are as below:

  • GCC Compiler
  • GNU tool chains for x86, PowerPC, ARM, AVR, AVR32
  • Visual DSP for Analog devices DSPs
  • Code Composer Studio for TI DSPs
  • Keil for 8051 controllers
  • CASE tools for DO-178B developments – DOORS, Logiscope, Testchecker
  • GNU Eclipse IDE for ARM and PowerPC processors
  • Windriver Workbench for VxWorks
  • Static Code Analyzer
  • CPP Rule Checker

Whatever the nature of the application, we ensure through design analysis, that the systems meet performance and timing requirements specified. We use an In-house software tool called DP-Chrono, a cross-platform in-house IDE tool covering compiling, debugging and profiling, to capture and benchmark time and performance, and to configure Acceptance Test Procedures (ATP). We also architect and design for scalability where required using our domain and application architecture expertise.

If you are in search of a vendor who can accelerate the progression of your program, and provide you with the most optimum result, along with a rapid return on your investment, look no further.
