Have more than just a question?


Our team has a vast embedded firmware and hardware knowledge base to help you develop innovative connected solutions. We use this expertise to solve problems at every stage of development. Whether your project requires a complex Linux solution or a realtime microcontroller, Arcturus has the expertise you need. Our staff can work with your team directly to extend their resources or independently develop solutions based on consultation and requirements.


Arcturus consultation services can be used to help identify solutions, investigate issues or provide expertise in an advisory capacity. Often this is the first phase of engagement, offering a low-risk approach to obtain insight from our experts. Our areas of expertise include embedded Linux, RTOS, communications, signaling, security and hardware development.


Our expertise in developing trust chain systems for IoT means that you can get access to the same industry standard security architectures to protect your product. Our portfolio of embedded security provides TLS cryptography and PKI authentication that scales from Linux down to RTOS systems on microcontrollers, offering the same trusted algorithms end-to-end. On top of this connection we can provide added security through payload authenticity, integrity and compatibility validation. Arcturus hardware security can offer tamper protection, TrustZone or authentication IC support to protect runtime code exploit. If embedded security is important to you, Arcturus services can deliver it.


Our internal hardware design team has been developing embedded hardware products since 2001 and is trusted by leading semiconductor manufacturers to create reference design solutions for their devices. Our expertise ranges from simple microcontrollers, to complex multicore, 64-bit designs, high-speed signals, and hardened systems with error correcting memories. Our boards and modules provide a unique blend of peripherals, making it possible to rapidly prototype technology demonstrators and proof-of-concepts. We have an in-house board bring up team to validate custom hardware designs including DDR timing and a BSP team that can provide an OS distribution tailored to your needs.


We helped pioneer embedded Linux with our early work on the 68K CPU family and our team is active in the kernel community today. We can provide custom kernel, driver and applications for embedded Linux and RTOS systems or port application packages. We’ve spent the time to develop the filesystem partitioning architectures required to support redundant firmware operation and developed the facilities for self-tests. Our team can leverage a sophisticated portfolio of field-proven interconnection software to support system-level deployment and in-field management including workflow operation using IOS® or Android®. If your embedded product needs to run for years without physical intervention, we can help.
