Development Platforms

Easy-to-use, scalable Software Development Platforms, Evaluation Modules and Reference Designs that help product developers leverage the capabilities of leading processors and SoCs.


Development platforms, reference designs and Evaluation Modules help product developers leverage the capabilities of leading processors and SoCs. Because of their scalable and modular architecture, these development platforms and evaluation modules provide design engineers with a flexible platform for building their embedded product.

Mistral range of easy-to-use, scalable and award winning embedded development platforms, product reference design and evaluation kits help product developers prototype and test their software and applications well before their product hardware is ready. Mistral has designed and developed several development platforms and reference designs to help customers address system level application challenges liked mixed signal designs, software drivers and Board Support Packages. Most of these development platforms and reference designs come with all the standard Application Programming Interfaces for Android, Yocto Linux and/or Debian. Due to this, developers can build highly differentiated feature-rich wireless and multimedia devices for the market, not only at comparatively low cost but also at considerably reduced time-to-market.

We also help silicon companies bring out software development platforms (SDPs) and evaluation kits for their upcoming SOCs. Over the years, Mistral’s has designed and developed Reference Designs and Software Development Platforms for TI and other silicon vendors. These TI reference designs have been adopted by leading product developers and have also won several awards and accolades over the years. This includes the TMDXEVM8148 which was shortlisted for the prestigious UBM ACE Awards 2012 in the “Development kit, Reference design and SBCs” category. Another of Mistral’s development platforms, the CraneBoard, a low-cost, open-source hardware development platform, was voted among the ‘EDN Hot 100 products’ of 2011.

Our growing list of software development platforms, Evaluation Modules and Kits are based on silicon from leading semiconductor companies like Texas Instruments, Renesas, NXP, Qualcomm, Analog Devices etc. on various ARM®, digital signal processors (DSPs) and multi-core processors.
