Specialized software that runs on embedded platforms. Pasadena Coherent can develop new firmware from scratch, or extend existing firmware to do new things.

Firmware can be developed in C, C++, Arduino, or whatever toolchain your MCU requires.
Device drivers will generally be written in C. Complex control programs will generally be written in C++. If you specifically prefer one or the other, or require a different language (Parallax Spin, etc), this can be accommodated.
Coding in C++ will be done in the SOLID style, or as close as possible without exhausting your MCU's speed and RAM limitations.
Configuration read from and stored to EEPROM, MicroSD, or whatever persistent storage your platform offers.
Text- and graphics-based special effects for your character or graphic display.
Physics simulation and other tricks to make light-generating displays really pop.
Motion control for robotics.
Robot / 3D Printer Firmware
8-bit and 32-bit architectures, especially Smoothie. Other firmwares (RepRapFirmware, Repetier, Marlin, etc) can also be modified. If existing firmware is inadequate for your purposes, completely new firmware can be written from scratch.
Kinematics for new drive types.
Heuristic calibration systems for non-linear drive types.
Z-probe calibration systems.
Anything else you might like, as long as the MCU has enough clock cycles and RAM to support it.
Small Device Firmware
8-bit (Arduino) and 32-bit (Arduino/Teensy++, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, etc) architectures.
Clocks that are also lamps.
Any other sort of desktop gadget.
Drones (flying and ground-based).
GPIO, I2C, SPI, CAN, UART, or anything else your MCU supports.
Custom protocols, e.g. WS2812 (NeoPixel) one-wire control.
