Linux Consultants and Commercial Linux Providers

There are many third-party partners who provide Linux services, products, and expertise that can assist in delivering Linux-based applications on TI devices. To assist TI customers seeking additional development help with Linux-based applications, this page provides listings and details on different third-parties. TIs Linux partners are separated into two different categories:

: Commercial Linux Providers are companies whose primary business is to provide their own supported Linux distributions along with additional development tool options such as a graphical IDE. These companies also offer different services, such as driver development, but the availability of such services assumes that the customer has purchased the commercial distribution.

: Linux consultants offer a variety of services including training, driver development, root file system customization, and Linux application development that are not tied to a specific distribution. Customers who prefer the original TI Linux distributions as their starting point and need assistance in getting to production should consult this list.

Please note that this information is sourced by the Linux Providers and Linux Consultants and is updated frequently. No endorsements of any specific providers or consultants is given or implied by TI.

The table below lists commercial Linux product providers who support TI devices. Please visit the providers web site for up-to-date information on product features and pricing and which TI devices are supported.

The table below lists Linux consultants, along with their areas of expertise and any additional services they provide. The location is given to help customers locate consultants in a similar time zone or with specific language skills. It does not mean that a consultant only does business in that specific country. The table is ordered alphabetically.

mailto:My most common role is that of a platform engineer, bringing up new custom processor boards through porting bootloaders and Linux/Android to produce new BSPs. This usually includes writing drivers for specialized components on the board and porting protocol stacks and required user space packages.

My background in both low-level software and digital hardware design allows me to independently work with the prototype board, schematics and datasheets.

As much of my work is in creating systems from scratch, it frequently involves the simultaneous debugging of new hardware and new software using debuggers, logic analyzers and oscilloscopes.
