Embeddetech will launch a Kickstarter campaign on June 20 for its Virtuoso software. Virtuoso is a powerful virtual device framework intended for custom electronics designers. With it, you can virtualize embedded systems. This means that firmware application developers can drag-and-drop commonly used components (e.g., LEDs, touch screens, and keypads) or develop new components from scratch and then start developing applications. With Virtuoso, a fully functional replica of the hardware accelerates firmware development while the hardware is developed in parallel.
In early 2017, Embeddetech plans to bring photo-realistic, real-time, 3-D virtualization to embedded software development using Unreal Engine, which is a powerful game engine developed by Epic Games. Embeddetech has developed a second framework which adapts Unreal Engine to Microsoft’s .NET Framework, allowing business applications to leverage the power of the modern 3-D game development workflow.
