Device Firmware Update Best Practices
Implementing OTA (Over The Air) firmware updates is one of the most critical yet complicated processes of building hardware. And unfortunately, many organizations don’t invest the same amount of resources in device firmware updates as they do in software.
In this recorded webinar, Memfault Founder & CEO François Baldassari walks through the best practices he has learned over the years for device firmware updates. He also presents a device firmware update architecture that will help you avoid spending hours and hours debugging firmware update issues.
- How to package your images
- How to make sure you don’t brick the device
- How to share your information between your bootloader and application
- How you can deploy controlled OTA firmware updates to specific device groups (in-house, beta users, etc.)
