Leverage our years of expertise in kernel porting, customizations, and debugging, including support for multicore platforms. We also have extensive expertise with bootloader modifications, custom and new bootloader development, and fail-safe boot as well as expertise in writing device drivers for Audio, USB, networking, peripherals, System-on-Chip, and custom FPGA hardware.
We can help with custom board bring-up for a variety of architectures including ARM, Power, x86, and more. Our board bringup services range from setting up and booting the board from NAND, SD card, eMMC, etc. — to setting up the kernel and optimizing for various devices and peripherals.
Boot Time Optimization
From analyzing your system and making recommendations to implementing a solution, we offer professional services to help you with all aspects of reducing the system boot time of your product. Our boot time optimization solutions typically utilize open source technologies; for those requiring extremely fast boot times, we also employ a commercial solution.

OS Migration to Open Source
Migration of applications to a new OS and hardware can be gut-wrenching, especially if you do not have the skills, experience, support, or services necessary to make the jump.
Timesys’ consulting services can help you think through the issues when migrating to embedded Linux and the options you have within the embedded Linux world. With Timesys, you can understand the pros and cons of a Roll Your Own (RYO) approach, an Open with Services approach, or a Commercial Linux approach. From there, Timesys can help you implement the migration — with confidence.
OS Migration from Windows Embedded to Open Source
If you’re a developer whose embedded application is currently based on a legacy Windows Embedded OS, are you prepared for when support for Windows CE 6.0 ends in 2017 and for Windows CE 7 in 2020? To be safe, you need to port or rewrite your applications for a new embedded OS now. Timesys’ expertise with Linux and Windows CE, along with our four-phase process, ensures a smooth migration. Timesys’ process includes: Analysis, Gap Identification and Sizing, Port and Optimize, and Deploy, and Support. With Timesys, your migration to open source can eliminate per-device royalties, enable new functionality, and prevent vendor-lock-in.
