Terminology

If you work in the industry, terms such as "Apps", "Embedded" and "Firmware" are all part of the lingo but for some industry terms can sound like technobabble. A person's face looking quite unhappy How about some fundamentals should you need them? or on the following items to learn more.

      A single CPU Bare-Metal Programming is a process where the electronic system is designed from the ground up starting only with the CPU (Central Processing Unit) which is at the heart of every computer system. Rather than using "off-the-shelf" computers systems, these bare-metal systems are designed with only the minimum required components for the application. This 'bare-metal' system needs low level programming using the specific protocols of each electronic chip interfacing with the CPU.

      An embedded system Embedded Systems are special purpose computer systems (sometimes called a microcontroller) as opposed to a general purpose PC or Smartphone. Embedded Systems perform very application specific functions for an electronic device. Embedded Systems can be off-the-shelf systems or bespoke bare-metal electronic systems.

      bit code firmware Firmware describes the code package downloaded to run on the embedded system.

      A computer and smartphone running software apps Apps are computer programs that run on general purpose computers such as a desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet to perform useful tasks for their users. Apps can be programmed to interface with embedded systems for control and data transfer.

    • A person with question marks floating above their head

      A computer sat in a cloud The cloud is an industry term used to describe services that run on a remote computer connected to the Internet. Cloud Services can be used to connect apps and embedded systems across the world.

    • A person with question marks floating above their head

      A computer sat in a cloud The Internet of Things is an industry term used to describe everyday objects embedded with electronics enabling them to connect to the Internet. Connecting to Cloud Services running on the Internet allow these every day objects to exchange data and be controlled by apps.

    • A person with question marks floating above their head

      A software app containing zeros and ones Software development describes the iterative process of collaborating, designing, programming, testing and deploying code to the desired target(s) so that it achieves user goals.

Services


bitcreations help you make your ideas a reality by designing and prototyping software products to run on embedded electronic systems, mobile, tablet and desktop PC devices.

What makes bitcreations different?

Where many companies specialise in programming either embedded systems or apps for mobile or PC platforms, bitcreations specialises in both. or on any of the following attributes to learn more of bitcreations' services.
