What our customers say
Linaro Developer Services provide deep Arm technical knowledge as well as strong relationships within various upstream communities. Their engagement in the latest Arm technologies allows for quick and solid deliverables, helping to de-risk a program. They have helped enable an Arm-based Windows laptop to support Linux, developed a variety of Docker containers for Arm-based servers, and also enabled firmware secure boot capabilities on an NXP-based system. If you need help with Arm firmware or software development, Linaro brings that professional edge.
At Square, we face the challenge of maintaining our Terminal and Register hardware products, which are based on short-support-cycle mobile technology, in an industry that requires long lifespans and up-to-date security patching. After the Qualcomm SD615 processor (2014) powering our devices went end-of-life in 2018, Square chose to engage with the Arm Linux specialists at Linaro for upstream-based extended life. Having seen their previous work on the DragonBoard 410c, we were confident that upstreaming was the right path and Linaro was the right partner to deliver a new Linux kernel paired with an up-to-date Android release.
The team dispatched from Linaro Developer Services was highly experienced in how to accomplish this without compromising on productization-level stability, battery life, or performance. As a result of this collaboration, Square is able to continue providing regular OS and kernel upgrades to our Terminal and Register customers for 5-10 more years. In particular, Linaro's expertise and assistance in bringing SoCs and boards into mainline ensures upstream support doesn't decay over time & provides a platform for the community to continue contributing to and benefiting from the work, reducing long term software burden.
Linaro Developer Services’ Hands on Training is a very effective way to accelerate the onboarding of new engineers. In particular, the Yocto training took a complex system and broke it down into understandable concepts and very practical steps that enable our engineers to get started with Yocto. This was accomplished in large part due to the quality of the trainers provided.
