Cloud platform enables integrated developers to quickly monitor, debug, and update connected devices at scale
San Francisco, California, April 29, 2021 – Memory fault, the provider of the first cloud-based platform for monitoring, updating and debugging connected devices, today launched a free self-service portal providing embedded developers with instant access to Memfault on Android OS devices or ARM microcontroller devices running on bare metal or real-time operating systems (RTOS).
â€œMemfault has instantly brought value to our team,â€ said Armen Nazarian, Founder and CEO of Audigo, developer of ultra-portable, easy-to-use content creation products for modern creators. â€œMemfault gave our start-up many of the same capabilities we had at Tesla with tools that would have taken us years to develop internally. With Memfault, we’ve gone from zero transparency on device health to getting detailed incident reports on all of our products. Memfault’s integration was seamless, and the ability to quickly diagnose issues remotely, and then send fixes instantly, made the platform an easy choice.
Memfault’s cloud-based device observability platform reduces engineering and support overhead by bringing the speed and agility of software development processes to device development. Customers like Logitech, Verkada, Whoop, and Airthings use Memfault to deploy OTA updates, automatically capture and debug issues remotely, and continuously monitor fleets of connected devices at scale.
â€œWhile it isn’t complicated enough to find and fix tough firmware bugs and push for OTA updates, onboard engineers have so far been burdened with passive, expensive, and debugging processes. ineffective, â€said Chris Coleman, CTO at Memfault. â€œOur self-service solution puts these capabilities within the reach of embedded developers; just click on it and get started. Now development teams can deliver high-quality devices, get them to market faster, and manage connected devices with continuous updates and debugging without impacting the end user.
Using the Memfault self-service portal, embedded developers can simply visit https://memfault.com/register/, and quickly sign up for a trial account without providing a credit card. Since all Memfault SDKs are available free of charge from GitHub, developers can immediately begin integration and development testing on their Android or microcontroller-based devices.
Memfault was founded by the creators of Interrupt, the popular community and blog for Embedded Software Engineers. Drawing on years of experience at Pebble, Oculus and Fitbit, Memfault created a new infrastructure to give device developers access to the same tools that software developers have used for years.
With the Memfault self-service portal, users benefit from free access to the entire Memfault platform, without any limitation:
- Device monitoring: Memfault offers real-time reports on device registrations and unexpected inactivity notifications. Teams can view device and fleet health data, such as battery life, connectivity status, and memory usage, or track release adoption and issues. from a single console using Memfault dashboards.
- Remote debugging: By aggregating issues between software versions and hardware revisions, Memfault can determine which devices are affected and which stack they are running. Teams can inspect backtraces, variables, and registers when they encounter an error.
- OTA Updates: Teams can provide updates to specific devices at specific times. By controlling the timing of OTA updates, teams can schedule updates when users are least impacted. Devices can also be divided into cohorts for targeted updates, and deployments can be done in stages to mitigate fleet-wide issues from new, updated versions.
