Linux Kernel

Igalia has years of experience on developing, maintaining and porting Linux device drivers for different types of hardware working together with upstream community.

The Linux kernel plays a  critical role in the performance and reliability of many consumer  electronics and industrial solutions that have become a fundamental part  of modern life. Ensuring the kernel you ship meets the requirements of  your underlying hardware platform is key to your product's success.

Igalia has a team of engineers specialized in the Linux kernel who offer consultancy in the following areas:

  • Developing new Linux-based solutions.
  • Integrating and customising existing solutions.
  • Writing, porting and maintaining drivers either upstream or in your private repositories.
  • Providing technical advice and identifying best practices.
  • Assisting with the upstreaming process.
