Linux Driver Development Services

ShuraCore develops Linux kernel drivers for various processor architectures (x86, ARM, RISC-V, PowerPC, SPARC, etc.). We have practical experience in modifying and configuring the Linux kernel, creating device drivers, integrating peripherals, configuring a device tree, developing a FrameBuffer, etc. We specialize in programming Linux kernel drivers for modern devices and systems used in industries: the Internet of Things, Industrial Automation and Robotics, Electronic Design Automation. ShuraCore provides services in the following areas of Linux kernel systems programming:

The high expertise accumulated by ShuraCore engineers in the development of system software for various architectures allows the Linux kernel to be adapted to any hardware and for multiple platforms. 

ShuraCore has the experience and knowledge of kernel subsystems needed to support base platforms and develop drivers for peripheral devices: clock frequency, parallel bus communication, power management, NAND, audio, networking, graphics, input and output devices, communication with industrial sensors, RTC, and more. At the stages of the development of system software for Linux, the ShuraCore team, together with the customer, analyzes the input requirements, develops a detailed cooperation plan, taking into account the chosen final solution.

Linux Software Development Services

Our company provides a full range of Linux software development services. ShuraCore engineers are ready to solve the most non-trivial and innovative problems within the industry: the Internet of Things, industrial automation and robotics, automation of the design of electronic devices. Our services include a selection of Linux distributions (Buildroot, Yocto Project, ROS, PetaLinux, and OpenWrt) for your hardware platform, creating a working environment configuration, preparing a Docker image of the future platform, creating a bootloader configuration (U-Boot, Barebox), setting up a Device Tree and writing a custom application for solving your business problems.

We will support the software developed by us with functional testing, integration testing, TDD, and Unit testing. The entire life cycle of Linux software and Linux image assembly is immediately put under the control of CI/CD. ShuraCore specialists do the job efficiently and on time. Our goal is a high-quality solution to your business problems. ShuraCore uses the following technologies to develop software for Linux:

Firmware Development Services

ShuraCore specializes in developing and implementing embedded software (bare-metal/RTOS) for microcontrollers, processors, and DSP. Our developments are used in various fields and industries. As a rule, our clients choose services to develop embedded software for microcontrollers. It is possible to reduce the final hardware platform’s cost when the device has not advanced software functionality when developing for Embedded Linux. Often, when developing firmware, the problem of reduced power consumption is solved.

Baremetal or RTOS-based embedded software helps manage electronic devices, increases the efficiency of solving a business problem, reduces the number of personnel or time involved, and systemizes interaction between complex systems components. Thanks to the presence of control based on microcontrollers, it becomes possible to work with complex processes, analyze the state of equipment, and form a history of events. ShuraCore uses the following technologies to develop embedded software:

Asymmetric Multiprocessor Processing (AMP)

ShuraCore is increasingly using asymmetric multiprocessing to solve customer business problems. Asymmetric multiprocessing is required to run multiple operating systems on a multi-core chip. As a rule, Linux is launched on one core to solve data transfer problems, support various protocols, display the user interface, and RTOS is established on the other core to solve real-time problems. Within this technology framework, a wide range of tasks for industrial automation and robotics are being solved. ShuraCore possesses the necessary competencies for solving asymmetric multiprocessing tasks. ShuraCore specialists use the following technologies:

Developing and Porting Middleware

ShuraCore provides Middleware development and porting services to its clients. In the context of distributed applications, middleware is software that performs functions beyond those supplied by the operating system to allow the various components of a distributed approach to exchange and manage data. Middleware supports and simplifies complex distributed applications. It includes web servers, application servers, messaging, and similar tools that support applications’ development and delivery. Middleware is an integral part of modern information technologies based on XML, SOAP, web services, and service-oriented architecture.

Middleware often enables interoperability between applications that run on different operating systems by providing services to exchange data based on standards. At the stages of development or porting of Middleware, the ShuraCore team, together with the customer, analyzes the input requirements, develops a detailed cooperation plan, taking into account the selected final solution.

BSP Development Services

ShuraCore provides BSP (Board Support Package) development services for its clients. A BSP is often a software module, a set of software modules, or a set of device drivers embedded in an operating system or bare-metal firmware. With the help of BSP, support for all equipment and features of a specific hardware platform is implemented. Linux BSP users and developers usually talk about HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer); BSP is more common among users of real-time operating systems. You can think of BSP as an operating system-specific HAL.

BSP implements a standard set of functions for the operating system, making the work with the hardware platform invisible to the rest of the OS or application software. ShuraCore specialists develop BSP of any complexity, observing all the functionality and business solution’s quality requirements. At the same time, we consider the client’s wishes, the budget, and other essential factors.

Windows Driver Development Services

ShuraCore company develops drivers for Windows OS. We have practical experience in modifying and developing drivers for Windows OS for various hardware. Creating Windows drivers is a highly non-trivial task in embedded software and low-level software development. ShuraCore specialists have the necessary knowledge and qualifications to build driver software for Windows. We use the following technologies and tools for driver development:

Drivers and BSP Development for Android

ShuraCore develops drivers and BSP for Android, running on various processor architectures. We have practical experience in modifying and configuring the Android kernel. We specialize in Android programming drivers for modern devices and systems used in industries: the Internet of Things, Industrial Automation and Robotics, Electronic Design Automation. A BSP is often a software module, a collection of software modules, or a group of device drivers built into the Android operating system. With the help of BSP, support for all equipment and features of a specific hardware platform is implemented.

We offer a powerful combination of deep technical expertise, proven low-risk processes, and a proven track record in various business areas to make your business idea a reality.
