Embedded systems are, by their very nature, a complex interaction of software and hardware. As such, no single tool or software application can always cover the very diverse needs of a development team during the complex, and often long, design and development process. To support our customers in such a case, we work closely with a variety of partners to ensure that the data our tools do provide can be utilized to provide the insights embedded developers need.
Whether it is a programming language and its compiler, or an operating system and its ecosystem, iSYSTEM's close cooperation benefits the embedded development community as a whole.
