Development Sequence

 

1. System Requirements Analysis

* Design tasks, goals, specifications

–  This provided by our customers

* Functional and non-functional requirement

–  Include system performance, cost, power consumption, volume, weight and other factors

 

2. Architecture Design

A good architecture is the key to the success of the design. In this step, it is often necessary to do following things:

  • Select the main chip:

— ARM Cortex A, R or M,  or PowerPc or ColdFire

  • Determine the RTOS:

— Linux, uClinux, Vxworks, freeRTOS, WinCE

  • Select Display:

TFT Panel, Sunlight Readable TFT, LCD Glass Panels, Graphic LCD,  OLED Display, Touch Panels, Embedded LCD display or Custom made display by Orient Display

  • Programming language:

— c/c++, python, Java

  • Development tools:

u-boot, busybox, QT, Ubuntu, stm32CubeIde, visual studio, android studio, keil uVision, RT-Tread studio

 

3. Hardware and Software Co-design

In order to shorten the product development cycle:

Hardware:  We usually begin project from evaluation board such as orient display AIY-A002M, AIY-A003M and AIY-A005M. later will Customized board to fit project, discard parts which don’t need.

Software Development Sequence:

  • We usually choose u-boot as Bootloader, it 1)init cpu to known state 2)init memory 3)init interrupt 4)init clock 5)load kernel to running address
  • Configure Kernel:

1) configure kernel system: *memory management, *file systems, *device driver, *network stack, *I/O Systems

2) write I/O device driver *char device driver, *block device driver, *net device driver

  • Select Applications:

*Select a user library *Build user application *Configure Initialization process *Build root FS

 

4. System Integration

Integrate the system’s software, hardware and execution devices together, debug, find and improve the errors in the unit design process.

 

5. System Test

Test the designed system to see if it meets the functional requirements given in the specification. The biggest feature of the embedded system development model is the comprehensive development of software and hardware.

 

In Conclusion

Orient Display has an amazing team of talented experts with the experience and capabilities to create an embedded display module from concept through to production.
