The Company

Formed in 2013, we have a highly experienced team of software designers with a strong pedigree in developing embedded firmware for a variety of microprocessors and microcontrollers (ASIC and FPGA), complemented by backgrounds in various disciplines. Our projects span a wide spread of application domains and technologies, with a client-base across North America, Ireland and the UK.

A sample of projects successfully delivered by Emdalo Technologies:

  • IIoT firmware that combined a low-power Wi-Fi solution with a low-power ARM MCU. Integrated with partner's cloud services. Supports TCP/IP connection with TLS encryption in an ultra-low memory configuration.
  • Highly-reliable firmware components for an existing code framework, targeting various avionics applications.
  • Porting of low-level linear algebra libraries and testbenches to custom accelerator silicon.
  • A room occupancy detector using a patented high-efficiency low-power implementation of a HoG algorithm.
  • Process design and requirements engineering for an automotive product using AutoSPICE, UML & MISRA C.
  • Visualization tools for merged 2D/3D workspaces combining dense pointclouds, high-definition imagery and navigational metadata targeting marine applications.
  • Design and implementation of secure cloud strategies for a variety of internet-enabled devices.
  • Syllabi, content, programming examples, supplementary material, exam questions, etc. for courses in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

The Team

We are proud to have a highly-experienced world class embedded software team, with strong hardware/SoC background, and a proven track record in complex software solutions, ranging from deeply embedded systems through to large-scale Unix web services and Windows GUI applications.

Our team members are dedicated professionals, with hands-on experience of all aspects of software engineering, including project management, gained across several industries and many technologies. We have been responsible for full lifecycle software development and delivery, including design, development, production roll out, maintenance and customer-support.
