  • Saving bandwidth with delta firmware updates

    In this post, we introduce the concept of delta (i.e. partial) firmware updates, explain why you may want to implement them in your projects and go through an example implementation from top to bottom.

  • Secure firmware updates with code signing

    In this post, we explain why firmware signing is important, how it works, and what algorithm should be used to implement it. We also detail a full implementation built with open source, cross platform libraries.

  • Device Firmware Update Cookbook

    In this post, I share the device firmware update architecture I would implement knowing everything I know now. I also highlight a few design patterns that are particularly useful. The example comes with a fully functional example of a multi-stage bootloader with DFU functionality.
