13coders is a micro-enterprise...but a highly connected one. We can call on a network of experienced developers, designers, and testers, and bring their expertise to bear on your project. We have three decades of experience helping development teams to work more effectively.
Founder and Chief Geek, Mike Ritchie, has over 30 years experience in software development, the majority of that in C and C++. He’s worked in industry sectors across pharmaceuticals, logistics, embedded medical devices, telecoms, manufacturing and finance.
He’s been involved in engineering management, team building and coaching as well as hands-on development. You can read his profile on LinkedIn.
We focus exclusively on languages, platforms and technical domains where were can add the most value. Our focus areas are:
Bare metal or RTOS development on any microcontroller with an ARM Cortex-M core, especially the STM32 family.
Embedded GNU/Linux for ARM Cortex-A cores, with experience of the Yocto build system for creating embedded Linux distributions.
General-purpose C++ development work for GNU/Linux on AMD64 or other architectures, including cross-platform C++ libraries for mobile development.
We use a blend of proprietary tooling as well as open source compilers and toolchains. We make extensive use of Segger tools for verification, profiling, instrumentation/test and debug/diagnostics on the target device.
In addition, we have the usual array of professional-level hardware verification tools - oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, multimeters. Please look at our development services for a more complete view of how we blend test-driven development and continuous integration, as well as test and instrumentation on the target device.
We can design and build hardware test harnesses to help de-risk delivery, and to remove impediments to development in the early and middle stages of a product development.
We’re accustomed to getting professional PCB manufacture, we have established relationships with UK-based suppliers for parts and PCB manufacture, and we know our way around a circuit schematic.
You can reach us via email or phone, and we're always happy to meet in person to talk through any ideas or requirements you have:
