FIRMWARE CASE STUDY
An Electronic Tools Company leveraged Thinxtream’s firmware expertise for their first Smart, Connected Product. Using the Espressif ESP8266 Wi-Fi Microcontroller with full TCP/IP stack, we successfully implemented IoT firmware on a small footprint device with low power consumption. The firmware enabled features included secure device to cloud connectivity over WiFi®, updating remote device status, and OTA device firmware upgrade. Read the Case Study.
