Embedded software is a specific type of software which is built into hardware systems. Any piece of technology that has circuit boards and computer chips will likely have embedded software within it, from digital clocks and cell phones to household appliances, automobiles, medical equipment, and smart TVs. These systems provide many of the advanced functions that are common in these modern devices.
Ascent have been working on embedded systems since the company was first founded. We now have considerable experience in the implementation of automotive ECU (Engine Control Unit) software tools and a variety of associated monitoring and diagnostic tools. We are perfectly positioned to add value to such software thanks to our complex, high-quality development techniques, experience, and our thorough testing processes.
