Case studies

Safety Critical Medical Device

This case study considers the development of a hand held diagnostic device used by patients, several times a day, to determine their required dose of medication. The product was to be manufactured in high volumes and was cost sensitive resulting in requirements that the software to be developed had to run on a low specification microprocessor with minimal memory footprint; with a limited user interface; and with a constrained power budget.


Advanced Automotive Electronics Architectures

Bitwise was contracted by one of the UK’s largest Automotive OEMs to investigate next generation IP/Ethernet backbone automotive control systems, specifically in the ‘Service Orientated’ or ‘Micro Service’ Architecture area.


Safety Critical Defence Project

Bitwise was contracted by a prime contractor to specify, design, implement and test software for a family of safety critical military devices to be delivered to the prime’s Client. The software included both real-time embedded software and manufacturing support software. Bitwise was responsible for the creation of the software safety case and the collection and management of all the associated evidence that demonstrated correct process had been followed.


Dutch Financial & Payment System

A leading payment solution provider in the Netherlands approached Bitwise to evaluate, specify, design and implement a software solution for payment terminal platforms with the intention that Bitwise would then provide long term support to maintain and onwardly develop the implementations over a number of years.


Provisioning System

Bitwise was approached by a Client to specify, design and implement a software solution which performed provisioning of in-field devices over a satellite communications network. The system also generated billing data based on device configuration and utilisation; and provided integration with 3rd party provisioning and billing systems for resellers and partners.
