Shrinking timelines, demanding costs and increasing number of features packed into a product; all these have ensured that middleware integration and middleware development have become a key component in the design and development of any embedded system today. Middleware is the software layer that lies between the operating system and system software, and the user applications. The main function of middleware is to help make application development simpler. This is achieved by offering common programming abstractions, delivering fundamental operating systems and hardware, and masking low-level programming details.
What is Middleware integration?
Middleware is any software that provides support to applications beyond what is offered by the operating system. Any software that connects the client application to the kernel can be termed as the middleware. Middleware development and middleware integration are critical part to any product. It allows connection between different end systems, performs data transformation, and application of business logic. In complex, embedded systems like telecom, aerospace and defense industries, Middleware development and middleware integration help plan, design, develop, and manage safe, secure, reliable, and compliant mission-critical platforms.
Middleware Integration Services
Mistral offers a range of Middleware development and middleware integration services that address various product development sub-tasks like power management, media framework, protocol etc. on Android, Embedded Linux, VxWorks, RTEMS and other RTOS platforms. Our middleware development and middleware Integration services cover device power management, audio and video codecs integration, media framework customization, test framework development, protocol development, algorithm development and integration, touch screen/display integration and wireless integration. They help in reducing the complexities in product development and enhance the product performance. Our middleware integration services also include integration of third party applications like voice recognition, text-to-speech, gesture tracking among others.
In addition to middleware development and middleware integration, Mistral also offers a range of middleware integration solutions from RTI, aimed at fast real-time distribution of data. Once such platform is the RTI Data Distribution Service (RTI-DDS) . The RTI-DDS is a middleware for integrating real-time systems. Based on a server less software bus, it allows real-time applications to communicate with each other with enterprise and legacy applications.
