We have a key expertise in developing Linux-managed devices such as those running Android and Yocto operating systems, for a wide range of use cases, from consumer electronics to industrial automation and beyond. We understand that reliability and performance are crucial factors in embedded systems, and we follow a rigorous testing and verification process to ensure that our solutions meet the highest standards.
We also provide ongoing maintenance and support services to ensure that our clients’ embedded systems remain fully functional and up-to-date. If you are interested in learning more about our specialized embedded system services, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
At Amarula Solutions, we have over a decade of experience in embedded systems development, with a particular focus on the Linux operating system. Linux forms the foundation of many embedded systems, and our team is actively involved in the development of Board Support Packages (BSP), device drivers, protocol stack porting, and user space application development.
We offer a wide range of BSP development services, including the development of customized Yocto or Buildroot BSPs, porting of services or required packages, adjustment of the Linux kernel or bootloader for the customer platform, and development of device drivers for various architectures such as ARM, x86, PowerPc, and SH processors.
Our expertise in ARM platform development has allowed us to collaborate with leading vendors such as Freescale (i.MX), Texas Instruments (OMAP), and Marvell (PXA) to create customized BSPs that meet our clients’ specific requirements.
Our development team has successfully delivered numerous projects involving BSP customization, and we take pride in our ability to create reliable and efficient solutions that meet the highest standards.
The development of device drivers is a critical aspect of BSP customization, and our software company has extensive expertise in this area. We have a proven track record of making multiple customizations and optimizations, as well as developing drivers from scratch.
Our team has worked on a wide range of subsystems, including the input subsystem (keyboard, touchscreen, etc.), block subsystem (disk, I/O, etc.), video subsystem, multiple subsystems, and IIO subsystem. We have a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of these subsystems, allowing us to develop drivers that meet the unique requirements of our clients.
In addition to our expertise in subsystem development, we have significant experience in kernel core customizations, such as Scheduler and Memory Management. Our team understands the importance of customizing these subsystems to optimize the performance of the entire system, resulting in a more reliable and efficient product.
Android has become a popular operating system for mobile devices due to its open nature and flexibility. As it is built on the Linux kernel, it takes advantage of Linux’s robust security, process and memory management, and support for drivers and protocol stacks. At the same time, it has its own complete mobile software stack designed to take full advantage of open-source projects and enable the use of a wide range of features exposed by modern mobile devices.
With more than a decade of experience, our team specializes in designing and customizing Android systems to meet the unique needs of our clients. We offer comprehensive support in both software and hardware design. Our expertise covers a wide range of areas, including customizing the Android system, integrating components within Android, supporting kernel and bootloader, industrialization and design, power management and networking, camera and multimedia, and board design.
We can provide complete support for low-level parts written in native C/C++, as well as support on JNI Java interfaces. Additionally, we can easily wrap any custom hardware component protocol in Android and extend the Android SDK as an SDK add-on to export a completely new interface.
We have extensive experience in integrating custom components into Android devices, such as card readers, custom LEDs, and secure elements used for payments, cryptographic operations, or tampering management. We are adept at adapting HW NFC products that are specific to the standard Android NFC stack together with the NXP and NCI implementation packages.
At our software company, we understand that each client has unique needs and requirements, which is why we provide customized solutions that are solid and effective.
The Android compatibility definition is a set of guidelines that defines how Android devices should behave to ensure consistency and compatibility across the ecosystem. This includes everything from the behavior of system services to the way apps interact with the system. Our software development team follows these guidelines with great attention to detail to ensure that the customizations we make to the system do not cause any compatibility issues.
To achieve this, we provide additional shared libraries that contain our custom API, which is clearly separated from the AOSP API. This ensures that our customization does not conflict with the existing Android framework and that the system remains easily manageable.
Quality control is a critical aspect of our development process. As part of this, we use the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS), which is a set of tests designed to ensure that Android devices meet the compatibility requirements. Our team has years of experience in developing Android projects that pass CTS testing and are fully compatible with the Android ecosystem.
By following these guidelines and using the CTS testing process, we ensure that the Android projects we deliver are of the highest quality, meet the compatibility requirements, and provide an excellent user experience.
We understand the critical importance of unit tests and integration tests in guaranteeing the stability and dependability of Android applications. That is why we employ state-of-the-art Android test frameworks to perform thorough testing of developer code. These test frameworks allow us to test code changes made to the operating system quickly and efficiently, thereby facilitating more effective development. We prioritize quality control and testing and ensure that our software meets the highest standards of performance and reliability.
