Case: Medical grade firmware module architecture
Philips – Beauty Product Development IPL, Skincare
Create medical grade firmware for hand-held consumer IPL device.
We participated in requirements engineering and created the module architecture (both software and electronics) for a family of IPL devices. We fully designed, documented and verified the final firmware conform the envisioned architecture.
The agile (iterative and incremental) approach has enabled the customer to quickly get an impression of how the device was going to work. Having a functional device at an early stage also made usability tests possible, which subsequent feedback was used to enhance the device functionality even further.
