Auriga dedicated development team deliver accumulated experience for excellent tailored firmware development:

OS Kernel Internals Development: Windows, Linux, Unix, RTOS

Auriga engineers always demonstrate a keen insight into kernel-related technologies, allowing Auriga to offer highly customizable solutions tailored to meet unique clients’ needs. We were pioneers in providing training on the Linux kernel. The course has received recognition from companies such as IBM, Mindtree Consulting, Symantec Corp.

Drivers Development Services

The development of stable, reliable, and maintainable device drivers requires specialized knowledge, experience, and tools. Auriga has acquired considerable expertise backed by 20+ years of working on a large number of projects involving development, maintenance, and testing of a variety of device drivers such as graphical subsystems, networking, sound, human interface devices. The experience gained by Auriga enables custom drivers development for consumer electronics, storage devices, and smart equipment in a process-oriented, predictable manner.

BSP Development Services

Auriga deals with tailored BSP projects on a regular basis. A board may be equipped with both standard and unique hardware components, so a BSP is a customization of an OS that provides software applications with methods to properly use the board components.

Why Auriga?

Team of professionals

Our engineering centers have excellent access to a pool of talented developers skilled in BSP and firmware development / BSP and device driver development. With the help of Auriga’s Training Center, we encourage our employees to deepen their knowledge and experience, providing advanced courses on kernel-level development. Thus, even the smallest of our teams efficiently deal with complex challenges and deliver high-quality firmware.

Open-source communities collaboration

Our experts are experienced in collaboration with Linux and Linaro communities. We know how to seamlessly integrate new drivers, patches into Linux distribution kit. We enjoy taking part in conferences on behalf of the client, act as speakers at industry forums.

Transparent communication

We believe in professional communications significance. Our engineers always do their best discussing requirements and implementation ideas, figuring out the kernel driver development, OS porting and BSP development, discussing the right compromise between time-to-market and feature set.

Open minded for new challenges

We accept the challenge in firmware development of new products and technologies that have no analogues worldwide. We use the accumulated experience and knowledge to help the client make an industry technological breakthrough. Auriga team was one of the first who started working with the world known virtual simulation environment, new operating systems (Tizen, Linux 5) and drivers for new connectivity protocols development.

Industry standards contribution

We work with clients in regulated industries like medicine, telecom, etc. If they develop industry standards, we help get their innovations aligned into industry standards.
