Microcontrollers are everywhere. They sit inside most modern industrial applications and home appliances. A modern car has more than 30, and over 30 billion are sold each year. They cost just a few dollars or less, are the size of a fingernail, and can run for years on batteries.
The last 5 years, microcontrollers have gone from only being able to run a single predefined calculation (some still are) to being powerful enough to process images or run neural networks. And with new cheap and low-powered WiFi and cellular technologies, they are getting connected to the internet.
Nonetheless, until now, software development for microcontrollers has been stuck in the stone age. Updating software on a microcontroller is risky and hard, and a single bug anywhere in your code can break your entire device. Because of that, software on microcontrollers is kept at a minimum, and all code is written before shipping the device, never to be touched again.
With our platform, developers can easily implement functionality and applications while our platform ensures that the device keeps functioning no matter what. This is unleashing the creativity of software developers on microcontrollers and is letting them build groundbreaking products that touch the physical world.
Toit was founded in 2018 by the team of developers that previously built V8 for Chrome at Google. We work from our office in Aarhus, Denmark or remote, and we are backed by Creandum, one of Europe’s leading early-stage venture capital firms.
