Cygnus has shipped IoT products with some of the best-known names in the industry. We've worked with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and Thread, and we can help your company choose the best solution for your product. We've worked with all of the major IoT Cloud platforms, which allows us to quickly integrate your product to the cloud. We've also designed industrial IoT systems (IIOT) for both on-premise and remote use cases. If you're looking for help with new standards like OCF, dotdot, IoTivity or IFTTT, we can guide you.
With a background in providing reference software and BSPs to semiconductor companies, our developers have deep expertise in embedded systems and firmware for hardware devices. Our embedded skills include C/C++, Python, DSP, I2C, SPI, USB, GPIO, UART, OTA, IPC, multi-threading, memory and performance optimzation, and network analysis. We've worked with ARM, x86, MIPS and all popular SoCs. We've shipped many products using Embedded Linux, but we're also comfortable with any RTOS or even a microcontroller without an OS.
We have a long history of pioneering work in digital media. Our team delivered DVD playback on the original Xbox for Microsoft, the first Blu-ray player for Samsung, and the first Netlix streaming app on a CE device. We introduced OTT video streaming channels more than 10 years ago. We've worked with MP3, MPEG2, H.264, HLS, HLVC, MPEG-DASH and all popular audio and video codecs, adaptive streaming, and DRM.
Cygnus has helped large manufacturers architect and design complete IoT systems, from edge devices to gateways to IoT cloud platforms. We offer design services for system architecture, hardware architecture and design (including PCB schematics and layout), and application user interface.
At Cygnus, we're passionate about the way we develop software. We've honed our process of building incremental slices of end-to-end functionality over more than 10 years of Agile and SCRUM projects. Our best practices include CI / CD, TDD and XP, and we have trained large and small companies in all of these areas.
Building quality software is difficult work and it requires an entire team that understands the development process, including Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Stakeholders. We offer coaching services for all of these roles, as well as Backlog Grooming, Roadmap and Strategy Planning, Project Estimation and Team Building. Cygnus can quickly bring software development discipline to your product team and help your company reach their full potential.
Our focus is on delivering value beyond our customer's expectations. We offer several engagement
models to accomodate our customer's needs. Many of our customer engagements last for several years
and span multiple projects.
Whether you need a full software development team, or individuals to complement your internal team, Cygnus can help you deliver your successful project on time and within budget.
