So what does Instigate Design do for a living? We are a software services company that works on projects with our customers in a variety of capacities. We often start working with software companies – many of which are EDA companies themselves – in a Quality Assurance capacity. We are provided access to the customer’s internal software builds, and we work on the testing of that software, a job that is often underestimated and never really completely finished at every software company around the world. This type of engagement works well for the customer, and for Instigate, because it fits a need for the customer, typically a strong need, can be ramped up quickly, and can be done remotely. After some time where the customer becomes more familiar with Instigate, and it has a positive track record, other areas are often explored such as actual development of the software that up to that point is/was being tested by Instigate.
This is just one sample of the type of engagements we partake in with our customers. Some are very different from this. Our expertise ranges from SW design and Verification to Distributed Computing and programming of massive parallel reconfigurable devices, development of DSP/Multimedia algorithms, cluster computing, embedded SW and OS development. A customer may have a great idea for a mobile app, but not have expertise or resource to get it built. In this case we call on our partner company, Instigate Mobile, to do the full development of the product, from spec to software delivery and deployment.
In the upcoming weeks and months, I’d like to introduce some of our internally developed products and solutions, project work that Instigate has done for its customers, as well as share some ideas about what we have found successful with our clients as a supporting cast member to their company from an “off-shore” location.
