The Story Behind Our Logo

The Orthogone logo is inspired by the Freemish crate - also known as “the impossible box”. At first glance the box looks normal but it soon becomes obvious that something is not quite right - it can be drawn but it cannot be built.

We love this story because we see it as our job: identify what is wrong and, more importantly, find the best solution to fix it. Based on our domains of expertise and deep experience in communications and networking systems, we are able to identify discrepancies before they become problems. We then apply “out of the box” thinking to robust hardware and software solutions that get the job done right – while respecting schedule and budget.

What are embedded systems?

Embedded systems are what bring intelligent features to everyday items. As the name suggests, these systems are “embedded” or integral parts of other systems (car, plane, communication device, navigation system, medical equipment, household appliances, etc.). They fulfill a specific function in real time. For example in a car, turning on windshield wipers when raindrops are detected.

Embedded systems are:

  • Systems used to solve specific and limited functions and tasks,
  • Often associated with real-time constraints tasks,
  • Composed of a hardware and a software part,
  • "Embedded" because they are part of a complete system that is not necessarily a computer.

“Worldwide, there are very few companies that have the capability to help our engineers with embedded radio communications systems. We selected Orthogone for our project because we trust their expertise. Orthogone not only did excellent work for us, but they were also very flexible when it came to providing additional resources when required.”
