Hardware Development Services
Dedicated in-house hardware specialists
Hardware development presents a significant risk to your project. Get it wrong and you could be looking at extended software development times, an underperforming end-product or, worst case, a device that isn’t fit for purpose. This is especially important in heavily regulated and quality-critical industries such as medtech, automotive, and aerospace.
The greater the disconnect between a hardware team and a software team or key stakeholders and users, the more likely you will experience issues. There’s a similar risk in choosing your hardware too early.
Bluefruit’s in-house hardware team allows us to close feedback loops and tightly integrate hardware and embedded software.
- Faster development times
- Not wasting time or money on poorly chosen components
- Software that’s written to work with hardware, not despite it (and vice-versa)
