In all but the most simple of devices, a microcontroller is used to cheaply and flexibly perform the tasks required. The downside is that sometimes the time involved with writing the corresponding firmware can end up being the single biggest cost of the project, and is therefore not necesssarily the best solution. In the likely scenario that your product does need or use a microcontroller, then Rapid Electronics can facilitate the development of the firmware and any other PC software or App required.
Rapid can either write the software in-house, or if it's more specialised then we have number of affiliates that we collaborate with to get you the best and fastest result.
