Delivering a Robust Firmware Management Solution
Coderus created a Windows 7 desktop application to support Frontier Silicon’s project managers with firmware checks and updates.
Our task was to develop a desktop application that would automatically go through a sequence of wireless devices, such as speakers, update the firmware and then check it for errors. At the end of the process, Frontier Silicon would have full visibility of the total number of updated devices, be able to narrow this down to individual devices and monitor any errors on them.
The Coderus application rose to Frontier Silicon’s challenge, delivering a robust Windows solution that updates the firmware in a timely, logical and robust manner. Here’s how it works: the user first sets the configuration and firmware that they wish to update. On discovering the Minuet Modules (the speakers) via their broadcast Wi-Fi network, the Coderus application checks its firmware version. Any necessary firmware updates are subsequently performed.
Once complete, the app checks the success of the update and monitors errors. Once all modules have been reviewed, the app generates a success vs. failure report. This makes it very easy for Frontier Silicon’s project managers to keep their products up-to-date and to take early remedial action as and when required.
