Lepton maintains expertise in all aspects of software development, but specializes
in the early and middle portion of the software development
lifecycle. We devote particular attention to requirements analysis,
system architecture, project planning and system implementation. In
addition, Lepton maintains a particular strength in technically
challenging fields including optimization, reverse engineering and

Lepton's experience spans a range of skills from hardware design,
through firmware and driver development to system programming, tool kits
and applications. In each of our service areas Lepton can leverage
tools and experience that vary from the very high level to very low
level. Weather you are targeting visual basic, assembly language,
C++, Java, DCOM, Sockets, HTML, ASP, ActiveX or .NET Lepton maintains a
range of expertise that can get the job done.
Analysis & Design
- A key to success in any technology project is to fully
understand the motivation for the work, then insure that the project
satisfies that motivation. Lepton will help you clarify the
business incentives for undertaking your project, then turn these
incentives into concrete goals. These goals drive the technical
specification of the system. This process often includes getting
feedback from prospective users and organizing this feedback into
necessary features and system performance requirements.
- Planning, Design
- Once requirements are specified, Lepton can help you turn those
requirements into architecture, specifications, resource requirements
and a project implementation plan. The result of this plan
includes verification and testing criteria that make milestones
meaningful. Wherever possible, quantitative techniques such as COCOMO
II requirements analysis tools are used to generate project estimates.
- Rapid Application
- When technology products are developed in fields that defy effective
requirements analysis, it is most efficient to develop in an
exploratory fashion. When such systems amenable to short
design-implement-review cycles, Lepton can provide RAD project
development allowing rapid prototyping and user feedback cycles. In a
RAD cycles product prototypes evolve until an effective specification
can be made.
- At the core of the software development process lies the develop-debug-test
cycle. Lepton can provide seasoned coding development expertise in
languages ranging from various assembly languages through C++ &
Java to high level languages such as Visual Basic.
- Most modern code runs effectively because exponential improvements
in hardware speed compensate for native code inefficiencies. However,
when your business goals require that every cycle count you need an
optimization expert. In such fields as Computer Graphics, mobile
computing, scientific programming, encryption and multithreaded
business systems, optimization can make the difference between a
profitable system and a useless one. At Lepton, we have
experience analyzing systems, ironing out algorithmic inefficiencies
and when necessary coding critical sections in assembly language for
- Sometimes a developing or mature system fails unexpectedly. Failure
can occur completely or in part, deterministically or stochastically,
recoverably or catastrophically. At Lepton we have experience instrumenting
systems to track down and eliminate the sources of problems. Starting
with a review of operational systems documentations we can proceed
through software monitors all the way to in-circuit emulators and
hardware logic analyzers to determine the source and context of the
problems. When the problem seem intractable, Lepton can help.
- Reverse Engineering
- When legacy systems become obscure or competitive factors favor
clean room or full reverse engineering, Lepton has the skills to help.
As appropriate, Lepton can perform functional re-specification,
protocol decomposition, file format analysis and binary & byte
code decompilation. In the most extreme cases we can generate binary
execution traces, analysis, and patches.
