Software Design

Nuvation provides a full range of embedded software services from simple bare metal solutions to sophisticated distributed systems. We offer embedded software development as a standalone service, or integrated with our custom hardware design and FPGA design services.

Our software development methodologies have been perfected over 20 years and 1000+ electronic design projects. We are well-versed in modern software technologies, tool sets, and best practices such as agile methodology, continuous integration, comprehensive testing, and strict branching workflow. Our embedded software services include:

  • Design documentation – specifying the work to be done before implementation, during which we engage in:
  • Prototyping as needed to test feasibility
  • Researching off-the-shelf tools and technologies to reduce project costs and accelerate schedules
  • Design implementation – primary coding, code re-use, vendor code library integration, peer reviews
  • Design validation – unit testing, system testing, integration

New Product Introduction

Nuvation Engineering’s approach to New Product Introduction (NPI) differs from traditional electronic product development by beginning the NPI process much earlier in the project. Using an approach we refer to as “Integrated Design to Manufacturing,” New Product Introduction phases are run concurrently with traditionally earlier engineering phases, reducing the overall project schedule by as much as 30%.


New Product Introduction Services

  • Incorporating specific manufacturing requirements into the design process
  • Establishing and optimizing an end-to-end supply chain to facilitate manufacturing
  • Back-end design stages e.g. compliance certifications, packaging design
  • Manufacturing engineering to prepare the design for volume production
  • Defining fabrication/assembly/configuration, test, and quality systems
  • Production pilot, ramp, and management of entire production process

  • Smart power management (e.g. ultra-low-power states)
  • Video security and data capture
  • Wired or wireless networking enablement and integration


IoT Gateway Design

  • Embedded software development of sensor data collection solutions
  • Latency management to deliver near real-time performance
  • Data flow management for large data sets
  • PCB design and I/O integration (e.g. Ethernet, USB)
  • Power management
  • Cloud connectivity (e.g. cellular, Ethernet, Wi-Fi)


Sensor Networking

  • Communications firmware development and cross-platform integration
