How firmware can change the world.

What is firmware anyway?

Firmware creates the magical moments in life that we often take for granted. It’s the bridge between software (like an app) and hardware (like a device). Firmware tells your smartphone to light up when you pick it up. Firmware tells your dishwasher how long it needs to wash your dishes. Firmware tells your car dashboard to tell you when your tires need more air. These magical everyday experiences are made when electrical hardware and firmware come together in unison. And this is what we strive for.

Intercreate’s Manifesto

Intercreate was formed by people united by the joy of product development. We believe that the best creations come from an egalitarian environment that fosters collaboration and open communication. At Intercreate we empower ourselves, our clients, and our partners to succeed because we love what we do - making magic.

What people have said about us.

Intercreate provided gold standard services and expertise on a project with an aggressive deadline and numerous technical challenges. If you are searching for a team of world class engineers that will jump into your project with passion and the utmost professionalism, then I highly recommend working with the team.

Case story: Roche Compute Module

For over 125 years, Roche has been focused on finding new medicines and diagnostics to evolve the practice of medicine and ultimately help patients live longer, better lives. That’s why we were excited when the Roche team came to us with a vision: to create a compute module that supports multiple test and experimenting environments. The module would be common for all future unique test setups, saving Roche time and money for future test designs. In speeding up development times, Roche could innovate faster and cheaper for years to come.

The challenge: Could we produce a common PCBA that would cover all unforeseen future test cases and firmware support?

In short, yes! Because close collaboration is so important to how we work, we first set up a Slack channel and established weekly meetings with the Roche team. We also set up a project in Pivotal Tracker, a system we use to track features, progress, and bugs.Next, we worked with Amanda S., an electrical engineer at Roche, to put together a comprehensive product requirements document (PRD). We established that we would be delivering one compute module PCBA with firmware, and one backplane PCBA for testing. We talked about what success for this project should look like: successful testing of the compute module and firmware.
