The firmware on any modern device, including devices on various platforms, allows you to modify literally every element to your own taste. And although ordinary users usually use ready-made versions, the firmware can be created independently in the case of a highly specialized task. This will require a number of special tools, people, experience, and time. The most important thing will be the quality of the developed firmware, rather than the time spent on its development.
So to begin with, let’s answer the question: what does it mean “firmware”? Firmware – is the embedded software that ensures the operation of the device. Gadgets are divided into two main parts – software (SW) and hardware (HW). The HW-part is all the physical devices and device parts that were used during the assembly. Still, without unique software, it simply will not be able to work.
Firmware is software components that are necessary in order to link together the elements of the hardware part. It is thanks to the software that a signal is sent to hardware units that perform certain computational tasks. After processing the command and executing it using the hardware, the user receives the final result.
Firmware development is carried out using various programming languages and using various protocols. The choice depends on what kind of device or equipment is being developed, what components will be used in it, and what functions the equipment will perform.
To develop firmware, existing software prototypes can also be taken as a basis. For example, it can be a Linux operating system for creating a distribution kit or an Android OS for creating a “shell” or adapting a software product to components of the hardware.
All requirements for the OS or firmware are determined by the technical task. The preferred methods for implementing tasks are also prescribed in the terms of reference and other documents for the development of a software product.
