With Red Bend’s new Fuse update product, even the smallest
resource-constrained electronic devices can receive firmware updates
Adopted by more than 80 leading device manufacturers, mobile operators, semiconductor vendors and automotive OEMs worldwide, Red Bend’s vRapid Mobile provides the easiest, fastest and most reliable way to deliver new features, applications and operating system updates to remote devices. As more and more resource-constrained devices become wirelessly connected, Fuse has been added to the vRapid Mobile product suite to specifically manage software across the “Internet of Small Things” such as automotive electronic control units (ECUs), embedded modules and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices used in utilities, manufacturing and logistics. These environments are characterized by limited bandwidth to distribute updates, insufficient flash resources to integrate a regular firmware update installer and not enough RAM to store the software update package. Consequently, such devices either could not be remotely updated, or the process to perform updates was time consuming, error prone and expensive.
