Custom Firmware Development
Firmware is a type of software that provides control, monitoring and data manipulation of engineered products and systems. A simple example of a product where it is used is a TV remote. It controls the buttons, the LEDs, and converts the button presses into a format the receiving device will understand. It is varied from quite primitive (like in a TV remote for example) to more sophisticated that is used in Linux Kernel devices (like BSPs).
Today, embedded firmware exists in everything from smartphones to internet of things devices. Reliable firmware is a basis for embedded solution of any size.
SaM Solutions has proven to be a reliable partner in custom firmware development for businesses of any size from startups to international corporations. Utilising modern tools in a way that makes development process cost-effective, fast and professional. By providing end-to-end services for new and legacy software our experts are able to fulfill any tasks our clients have.
It is hard to hire firmware developers due to this expertise's rarity, and costs that come with hiring programmers that have this specialisation. Our company implemented dozens of embedded firmware development projects with our partners by closely working with their R&D teams.
SaM Solutions provides its clients with a unique blend of firmware development services:
- Linux Kernel development (Creating and backporting device drivers (kernel modules), building BSP for custom hardware based on various CPUs, analysing and fixing errors in both PCB and software, kernel upstream interaction and contributions.)
- Middleware development (web servers and services, infrastructure libraries, integration of 3rd party firmware)
- Application development (STB applications, server monitoring solutions, virtualization solutions)
- Migration of legacy applications/firmware to new platforms
