5 Fundamental Rules of Outsourcing Embedded Software Project

Embedded software is becoming omnipresent across multiple industries as the driving technology behind consumer applications. Almost every modern device comes with an embedded software system. One of the main reasons for increased adoption of embedded software is its use by electronics companies for increased functionality, improved quality, and reusability. However, the ever growing product complexity and rapid development of digital technologies are increasing the cost of embedded software development.

What can you gain from Outsourcing Engineering Services?

Many of the world’s most competitive firms turn to outsourcing engineering services to meet their needs. This is true for companies with no in-house engineering as well as companies with extensive in-house expertise. With the right provider, outsourced engineering teams can develop complete products and transition them to production, or they can develop only critical subsystems. In both cases, outsourcing a project to an engineering services firm can free management resources and bring products to market faster. In short, contract engineering services provide surge capacity and flexibility that companies require when they are developing complex systems under aggressive schedules.

Syneron Candela – Leading medical aesthetic laser devices company

Syneron Candela – Leading medical aesthetic laser devices company

About the client

Syneron Candela is a leading global aesthetic device company with a comprehensive product portfolio and a global distribution footprint.

The Challenge

The company had identified the production process as a critical path in the manufacturing chain. Challenges discovered during production caused significant failure rates on one of the most critical components, the company was looking for a solution to improve the yield.

The Solution

EFIRMDesign offered a full turn-key solution which included firmware support to the automatic test platform/ testbed and developed the process per companies SOW while working as an external team member to  Candela’s engineering group.

The Result

  • Successful completion and integration of the tester to the manufacturing process
  • Shorten manufacturing time and improved yield
  • Completing the task in short timelines and significantly under budget
  • Successful completion of the project by  EFirmdesign leads to additional cooperation between the companies

Medical laser company

Medical laser company

About the client

A global leader in the field of minimally-invasive clinical solutions for the Surgical, Ophthalmology and Aesthetic markets, and is a world-renowned expert in developing and commercializing innovative energy-based technologies, including Laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio-Frequency (RF).

The Challenge

The company was challenged with an end of life of customized Power supply and was looking for a fast solution in the development of a new 4.5kW medical grade High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS) /Charger to address its manufacturing needs.

The Solution

EFIRMDesign developed hardware, software and mechanical layout of the HVPS per customers SOW. The HVPS was developed to comply with strict requirements of the international medical standards, customized communication protocol between device and the unit and strict dimensional limitations.

The Result

  • Successful development and integration of the HVPS within predefined timelines and budget.
  • Testing of the HVPS to comply with IEC60601 and other medical standards
  • Design and implementation of manufacturing test procedures, test fixtures required to ensure HVPS reliability and quality
  • Transfer of the HVPS to turn key production at the manufacturer’s facility
  • Successful completion of the project by EFirmdesign leads to additional cooperation between the companies.
