We have the capabilities to build custom solutions or integrate with existing systems that are compatible with the following SoC vendors and their associated platforms:
• Creation of GStreamer plugins to make use of API’s provided by SoC vendors to get access to hardware accelerators, including encoders, decoders, DSPs, GPUs, FPGA, etc.
• GStreamer development in case of media applications and design of modular solutions to capture, encode and stream video
• Pipeline tuning to improve processor usage, framerate, latency, amongst others
• Design and implementation of media servers supporting snapshots, recording, streaming, metadata and other media features for both embedded and general processors
Development Environment, Integration & Upgrades
• Setup of the development environment (SDK) and integration of applications
• BSP (board support package) upgrade
• Firmware upgrade applications
Embedded Application Development
• Proof of concepts in multiple evaluation boards
• Hardware bring up of custom board designs
• Development of Android and iOS Applications
• Development of Graphic User Interfaces (GUI)
• Computer Vision and AI training and inference
• Development and optimization of Linux drivers: V4L2 drivers for camera sensors, MIPI CSI bridges, MIPI DSI displays, audio codecs, wifi chips, Ethernet PHY chips, GPIO/i2c expanders, etc.
• Support for remote control of the embedded system through smart devices including tablets, phones, and PCs
• CUDA algorithms
• ROS / ROS2 development
Linux Driver & Application Optimization

Flexible Engineering Service Models
The RidgeRun engineering team directly supports customers from all industries with our embedded Linux solutions. We work in a collaborative manner to keep you engaged in all steps in the delivery of tasks we are assigned. We provide flexible service models so you can choose how to work with our engineering team:
Before choosing the appropriate service model, RidgeRun will set up an initial consultation to discuss your needs. At that time, we’ll determine the best model for obtaining engineering services moving forward.
Working with RidgeRun: Initial Consultation
Hourly Engineering Contracts
For single project efforts, RidgeRun offers Professional Support Hours at $110/h. With this model, our engineers work on your project as an extension of your engineering team. You provide the requirements, you control the task list, and you set the priorities; all of which you can change at any time.
*Note that our minimum initial support hour requirements begin at 36 hours for new customers
Dedicated Engineering Services Team
For long-term multi-project efforts or long-term support, RidgeRun offers dedicated engineering services. With this model, RidgeRun works with you to staff full-time embedded engineers who are dedicated to your business, and you are responsible for overall project management.
Are you a board designer or SoC producer who desires a Linux SDK, GStreamer and support services for your hardware? RidgeRun has flexible working arrangements with several partners using a collaborative model. Contact us to discuss this option with our business management team.
