How Avench's Methodology Creates Successful Embedded Systems?

We come across some smart communicating devices almost everywhere in our daily lives. With the advent of IIoT, Embedded systems work behind the core driving of the application. By the year 2025, the Embedded systems industry will marches to $116.2M, and many companies are now focused on capitalizing on this.

Avench Systems has always been focused and devoted to Embedded Systems Development. Avench systems has outperformed itself and in a short span of 7 years, has earned the reputation of a leading Embedded Systems Development company. It is one of the fastest-growing Embedded System providers in the world and has a passionate take on development. As a global full-stack consulting company, Avench systems follows a strategic approach in planning developments and also the delivery model.

Follows Agile Methodology

Most of the Embedded system projects follow a standard and structured process. Avench systems follows a standard Agile method that enables at the component level across software and hardware builds. Right from the beginning of the engagement to post-delivery support, Avench’s approach removes redundancies and fastens the time to market. Besides highly improved quality and predictable costing, Avench’s vision to develop market-ready Embedded systems benefits from the participation of stakeholders. This adds more business value and assures utmost transparency of the process.

Here’s a quick run through the different milestones that make up the end-to-end Agile process

Idea Feasibility – Any product idea in mind is jotted down on paper wherein its feasibility with the number of parameters or metrics is evaluated. Starting with market analysis of the product, an extensive study of available solutions alongwith their SWOT analysis is performed. This enables a comprehensive understanding of opportunities that the product can benefit from.

The next part is feasibility of the idea that is done by considering stakeholder expectations, time-to-market deadline, regulatory compliance, the readiness of the available resources and as per the capital. Moreover, the technical feasibility helps in evaluating the idea as per the available technology across Linux, BSP & Middleware, Firmware systems, PCB, and others.

Engagement – Embedded Systems include tremendous participation from firmware, hardware, software stakeholders and solution locking is a vital step here. In the initial project development process, participants from multiple disciplines are involved while writing the statement-of-work. This includes the solution architecture diagram of approved solutions that is followed by not only digital circuit representation but also by other design specifications.

If there is any mismatch in the commitment it could complicate product development. The engagement phase details all components that are to be used, dependencies on the customer, and also the number of resources required.

Industrial Design- Through 3D modeling, industrial designing does a mock representation of the product. This leads to the enclosure prototyping and evaluation against design standards in the digital format. Avench uses enterprise-grade tools such as TinkerCAD, Meshlab, Fusion 360 & Autodesk, as the objective of that phase is to prepare a reference model for mass production.

Hardware Design – Hardware designing is the core of developing embedded systems. This is one of the most vital and longest part of the process. Avench’s USP lies in detailing of the schematic block diagram which is used as a reference for component selection for the circuit. They have mastered hardware designing with vast experience across a range of products. The Gerber generation and PCB Layout is performed by expert professionals. This helps in a smoother final assembly of the components and faultless PCB fabrication. Finally, the board bring-up testing is done.

Software Development – After post design, the hardware architecture of the product is moved to software designing. This step includes programming approach finalization, processor and peripherals selection, high-level architecture, application development, firmware development, system software development, code optimization, and testing. Software development is a key area, as most of the embedded systems find their application in IoT projects.

The software application development is divided into User Interface and Embedded systems development, following the high-level architecture which is locked in the scoping document. Along with firmware development, embedded systems drive the core business logic. Testing and deployment are performed using standard code optimization practices.

Follows an Optimization strategy

Optimization is a key phase that filters the inconsistencies in the desired application, regardless of hardware or software systems under development. Driving complex IoT networks for embedded systems comprising both software and hardware apps and optimizing them at every level is an imperative practice. It can be achieved only with the right set of tools. To accurately predict the behavior of systems under development, the developers at Avench are equipped with industry-grade tools. The main purpose of optimizing embedded systems is to reduce the size of the code as to build compact yet faster applications.

For example, to assure a leaner code while making the overall system perform faster an optimization tool, Somnium DRT is used. The standalone tools or various other toolchains are deployed to perform the optimization. Avench performs deep testing to decide upon whether open-source or commercial compilers should be used depending upon scale of the application. Enterprises must take note as the absence of milestone maps in the system optimization could put various developments to risk. A set target plan of Avench is one of the leading reasons why it has been able to achieve implementation success. Every optimization pass is provided with more time to go deeper into the system, to ensure the smallest of improvements in the system.

Developers must know when to stop because the scope of improvement is unlimited. This is vital because optimization without a strategy of execution could take weeks of working on a system that may not need any refinement.

A well-planned optimization assures time to progress and market, besides ensuring a high-performing system.

Flexible Engagement Models

Avench Systems have multiple models to choose from such as the Full-Time-Equivalent Model (FTE), Turnkey Model, Time & Material Model, and Offshore Development Model (ODC). An exclusive engagement model strategy is curated for every project, based upon the type of consultation, budget, and timelines agreed upon. This has helped the company to expand its reach to other markets and emerge as a reputed entity in the business, by scaling its list of services and taking up the complex requirements in the embedded systems consulting space.

Focus on Making Smaller and Faster Systems
As the fate of most Embedded Systems is tied to the scope of the IoT markets, most of the Embedded Systems projects at Avench are complex builds that comprise multiple software and hardware elements. Despite intricacy of the build, nothing has stopped Avench from making smaller and faster systems. Therefore, the constant focus on faster loading times within a compact size is the key differentiator here. Given vast experience in serving a breadth of sectors such as manufacturing, healthcare, and automobile, Avench looks forward to emerging opportunities.
