Are you looking for a solution that speeds up a program's run, and do you care about a small memory footprint? Low-level programming engineering can be your way to achieve that!

This is how our low-level engineers will help you

Low-level programming has been our thing since 2011. Our services aim to provide you with high-quality support whether you need a helping hand with smartNICs, or DPDK, P4, or FPGA development.

DPDK development

Our DPDK-related services include: developing DPDK Poll Mode Drivers for various hardware platforms, integration of DPDK drivers with different applications, fixing issues and extending the interfaces according to modern PMD driver requirements. You can also rely on us to develop tests to demonstrate precisely how switching to DPDK will improve your solution's performance.

Services for smartNICs users

For companies that want to implement smartNICs into their solutions or products, we offer implementation of a particular network function using P4 (if the smartNIC supports it) and adaptation of the existing software to control the given smartNIC at runtime.

Services for smartNIC manufacturers

For smartNICs manufacturers, we provide services like developing firmware, dedicated drivers (DPDK PMD or kernel module), and QA-building automated test environments for performance and functional tests.

P4 development

Our P4-related services include verifying which P4 architecture model will support the client's target, preparing P4 implementation, and designing the dataplane processing pipeline.
We support creating P4 code compilation, conducting functional tests of dataplanes, and adapting the existing control/management software to control the given P4 target at runtime.

FPGA development

Our FPGA team helps you with IP Cores integration and development (VHDL) or HW simulation. You can expect support with conducting smoke tests executed directly on hardware, and API level tests of hardware designs. We also build for you complete, system-level, dynamic acceptance tests alongside a virtual environment reflecting the end user's use cases.
Want more? We can build full CI/CD pipelines and verify the hardware design in continuous mode with full visibility for developers, QA, and managers (domain, software, and hardware knowledge on board).
