Sterling Medical Devices aided in the creation of an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the generation of defibrillator software and firmware development. First, Sterling developed a State Machine Analysis command line tool to be integrated into the IDE. Sterling also assisted in key decisions regarding the design architecture. The IDE includes file editing, creation, and deletion. Additionally, Sterling integrated a Compiler, text to visual drawing converter for the Client’s proprietary algorithm, Debugger, and Simulator functionality to the IDE.
