Linux Device Driver Development
Run your embedded software seamlessly on a wide range of hardware devices with our Linux driver development services. SaM Solutions has over two decades of hands-on experience building and customizing drivers for various types of I/O peripherals and character devices, including network appliances, consumer electronics, industrial equipment, self-service terminals, you name it.
Our experts develop Linux kernel driver software using proven industry technologies and ensure its reliable performance in embedded systems across a number of domains.
Linux Device Driver Development
Using top-of-the-line tools and technologies, our skilled specialists can write Linux device drivers for any hardware appliances from scratch or adapt drivers for an existing Linux environment. We cooperate with businesses of any size, from startups to large enterprises, offering them efficient solutions that fully meet their requirements.
Linux Device Driver Benchmarking
We analyze/test the developed Linux device driver code to measure its performance and make sure it operates as intended. This way, our clients get not just Linux drivers functioning as expected, but also drivers that are optimized to fully meet and exceed the necessary performance levels.
If you need to port your drivers to alternative platforms, our team will help you with this challenging task. Thanks to our extensive experience with a variety of platforms, our specialists know how to avoid issues related to code porting and make the process as quick as possible.
Linux Device Driver Updating
Device drivers directly impact the smooth operation of hardware components in your system. When you fix some hardware issues, you may need to update Linux files. By installing the latest versions, you ensure security, improve compatibility and potentially resolve other issues. This way, you can also add new features to your device. If you need to update the Linux code on your devices, we are ready to help you and ensure the mitigation of potential risks.
A device driver package includes software components needed for the correct functioning of the hardware part of the system. We will help you determine which components to supply within your Linux package to meet the needs of a particular device, or can change an existing package to offer improved functionality.
Should you have an issue with memory leaks, performance bottlenecks, or security of your product’s peripherals, our experts will be happy to step in and analyze your solution from hardware design to drivers, taking into account the current industry standards and applying our experience of many years.

How we work
- Before starting the development phase, we thoroughly explore the client’s needs and requirements to get a holistic vision of the future product and understand how to structure our code.
- Based on the collected requirements, our developers design the optimal code architecture.
- The development process is fully transparent for the client and is based on agile project management methodologies.
- Our QA specialists ensure the top quality of our embedded Linux code that lets our clients enjoy the stable operation of their hardware under any conditions.
It is important to know the exact version of the Linux kernel for which the code should be available. Depending on the kernel version, different API calls may be available. It means that what works on one kernel version might require additional effort to compile and run on another version.
Yes, we do. Depending on project needs, we can perform manual testing, develop an automated testing framework and everything in-between.
We build drivers for network appliances, consumer electronics (e-books, set-top boxes, GPS navigation systems, media boxes), smartphones and tablets, industrial equipment, experimental and scientific equipment, self-service terminals.
Generally, it’s enough to have:
- the documentation for the target platform on which the device is installed/soldered;
- the documentation for the device for which the code needs to be implemented;
- the hardware itself (in order to be able to verify the driver is working);
- BSP (exact version used to build either the kernel/complete firmware with the kernel/bootloader/user-space applications, e.g., exact Yocto version and dependencies if applicable);
- toolchain (exact version);
- additional tools (if required), e.g., hardware debuggers (SEGGER J-Link, AVR-ICE, etc.).
