Root File System Development
File systems have always played a crucial role in the performance of embedded systems, but even more so today as devices are getting smaller and more powerful processors are being developed.
Whether you’re looking for file system development from scratch or looking to optimize your current file system to improve performance, we at iFour have got you covered.
We have expertise in working with popular file systems such as JFFS, JFFS2, ROMFS, CRAMFS, YAFFS, custom FFS, RAMFS, FAT32, TFAT, EXT2, EXT3, etc.
Boot time optimization
We provide boot time optimization services for applications that have such special requirements. To do so, we recompile the bootloader or kernel, or even rebuild the entire root file system.
Testing and optimization
Last but not the least, our services also include BSP testing and optimization services. We provide services such as test automation, test outsourcing, and test process consultancy in various types of testing such as functional testing, regression testing, and performance testing.
We adopt a hybrid testing approach to get the best of manual testing and automated testing. Using these methods, our in-house team of QA Engineers quickly identifies the underlying to resolve them in a quick and effective way.
Apart from the testing services, iFour also helps you in optimizing your driver performance on different platforms. This is bound to improve your benchmark performance scores and overall performance of the system.

Frequently Asked Questions
In embedded systems, Board support package(BSP) is a layer of software or code that contains hardware specific drivers and routines which allows a real-time operating system to work under a particular hardware system. In other words, it’s a program built for computer hardware to make it compatible with the operating system of a computer.
A Board Support Package (BSP) is a layer of software used to run an operating system to work under a particular hardware system. A Linux based BSP is something that’s been programmed on Linux. To make Linux work on an embedded platform, you need to adapt the Linux kernel to the target CPU.
A system on a chip (SoC) is a single integrated chip (IC) that combines many essential elements of a computer system into a single chip. They always consist of a CPU and could also include system memory, peripheral controllers, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized neural network circuitry, radio modems, etc.
A Board Support Package (BSP) acts as a standardized interface between hardware and the operating system (OS) or Kernal. Thus, we can say that BSP doesn’t include Kernal. Rather, it works with it as a bridge to the hardware.
