Proven Tools for IoT Innovators
It was our hands-on wireless development experience that led us to start creating our own wireless modules in 2014. Today, our modules power millions of low energy wireless devices.
Based our experience launching and scaling clients’ IoT products, our team of engineers created a set of tools to power our rapid development and secure device updating. We offer them as value-added software for our certified connectivity customers. Specifically, we offer our:
Together, these provide our customers with critical components to accelerate development and scale for success.
Our Jumpstart Tools were developed through our engineering team’s experience helping clients setup, develop and deploy connected products.
Beginning with the initial out-of-box experience setup for a Rigado Evaluation Kit, and extending through the building of production mobile apps using the included libraries, our tools help teams accelerate development from start to finish.
This also includes our Secure Bootloader firmware, which connects and enables the DeviceOps Platform outlined below.
Secure Over-the-Air Bootloader
RigDFU allows you to keep your product up to date, securely. It allows for end-to-end encryption during the update process, whether over BLE or from a UART. Program your module via a UART in the factory, and then let your customers update over BLE through your app.
BLE Library for iOS and Android
The Rigablue library simplifies your interaction with Bluetooth Smart devices on iOS and Android. Easy deep device discovery, robust connection maintenance, and simple firmware updates with support for RigDFU encrypted images.
iBeacon & UART Bridge
Our BMDware for Rigado Modules provides iBeacon and transparent UART Bridge over BLE functionality, right out of the box. Both features are fully configurable overBLE or UART. We also support Bluetooth’s Direct Test Mode (DTM) with no setup required.
Our latest toolset for connected product teams is the DeviceOps Platform for secure updating.
Based on our work with companies deploying thousands… then tens of thousands… and then millions of devices in the field, we saw first-hand the challenges those teams faced in keeping connected products updated with their latest firmware and configuration.
To address those challenges, we created the DeviceOps Platform as a set of tools to power customers’ large-scale device update and management solutions.
Compressed Differential Updater
We have developed a firmware update compression capability that reduces the time and risk of device updating. By comparing the new firmware to the existing – and then managing the transfer of just the new code – we can dramatically reduce the size of the update.
Mobile Updater Tools
These libraries for iOS and Android make it easy for companies to include secure updating capability in their native apps. By leveraging the Secure Bootloader already loaded on the Rigado module, these libraries allow for a plug-and-play OTA firmware updating capability.
Cloud-based Management Tools
Companies with thousands – or millions – of connected devices in the field face unique challenges in managing configuration and firmware updates. We have developed a set of cloud-based services for clients to leverage as the backbone of their secure OTA updating.
