Mobile applications, along with machine learning and artificial intelligence, might be stealing the headlines from software development, but quality products are still dependent on PC-based software for design and testing. Custom desktop applications allow design teams to both configure and test products, as well as validate assembly and product performance on the production line. In addition, complex mechatronic products like modern vending machines typically rely on PC-based software to provide a rich and flexible interface for the customer, as well as providing machine status and stock level reporting remotely over the Internet.
Interfacing with the outside world
Simplexity’s team of experienced software engineers understands how smart products interface with the outside world, with the requisite knowledge of operating systems and challenging network environments. Software must often communicate with other instruments, such as machine vision and specialized measurement devices. Data modeling and efficient algorithms also contribute to creating smart, effective products.
We are well-versed in a variety of languages, technologies, and protocols to develop software applications for configuration and testing of products during development, production, and in the field. Whether it’s development in standard languages, such as C++, C#, or Python, or using advanced software tools such as MATLAB/Simulink and LabVIEW, our software engineers deliver quality results. We have also designed full user interface and machine control systems for products with dedicated PC control, including 21 CFR Part 11 compliance for medical device data processing required by FDA standards. Equipped with this portfolio, our team has the experience to choose the right software technology for both new product development and updates to legacy products.
“Simplexity has a highly motivated, technically resourceful staff. For a complete project or for augmentation of an existing program, they are a go-to team in a crunch.”
