As a hardware developer, I keep a number of tools and gadgets handy: a USB to UART converter, an O-scope, a multi-meter, an SWD/JTAG programmer, and then some. It’s quite a pain to keep track of all these devices and to maintain all of the software needed to use them.
Which is why we built Stratify Toolbox. It’s coming soon, and it’s looking to replace most (if not all) of that tool-related overhead.
Stratify Toolbox is designed to accelerate nearly every step involved in getting your project to market, from choosing sensors to testing your final product!
Component Selection. With the Toolbox you can quickly connect sensors to the serial bus and write evaluation firmware using a high level API. For the most common sensors, you can just install an existing application and see exactly how the sensor works.
Board Bringup. Once you get your PCB assembled and it passes the smoke test, you can use the Toolbox to probe the serial buses and sensors to make sure they are all responding before you even try to develop firmware.
Firmware Development. The Toolbox has a master SWD port and runs a GBD server, either over a Wi-Fi socket or through the USB virtual comm port. Combined with a built-in USB to UART converter, this functionality should provide everything you need to develop and debug.
Development Testing. Once you have some firmware running, you need to put the hardware through the gauntlet. The Toolbox can act as a stand-alone test monitor, measuring signals, probing buses, and monitoring debug messages for hours on end. The data can be accessed on an SD Card, over USB, or remotely using Wi-Fi.
Manufacturing Support. Finally, when you are ready to go to production, you can send the Toolbox to the factory. Maintain complete control over your intellectual property and get detailed programming and test reports in the cloud.
Stratify Toolbox is powered by Stratify OS, an application-based MCU operating system that takes full advantage of ARM Cortex M hardware features. Applications are built independently of the kernel and run in memory-protected space with their own stack pointer. The Toolbox includes core features for managing applications, files, and Wi-Fi networks. Furthermore, the SDK allows anyone to build and share additional tools.
With our easy-to-use SDK, you will find yourself building and installing new applications in no time at all. As we demonstrate in our Setup & Configuration Guide, just a few simple steps will have you up and running on Windows 10 or MacOS in less than ten minutes. (Please drop us a line if you want a Linux guide!)
