Q: Why do I need to hire an expert to develop a driver? It’s just software.

A: Driver development is tricky business. Once you get “under the covers” of an operating system you find a whole new world of race conditions, complicated hardware/software interactions, memory management problems, and system reliability issues. We at Hill Driver Solutions understand the issues and have the expertise to ensure a reliable driver solution that will meet your needs – the first time.

Q: How can a driver improve the performance of my system?

A: It doesn’t matter how well your hardware performs, your customers will never realize the benefits if your driver software is not performing to its maximum capability. There are many aspects of system performance that are unwittingly affected by poor usage of the kernel API and system resources. These include: poor choices of synchronization objects, inefficient usage of memory resources, and poor interrupt handling techniques. Our extensive knowledge of the kernel API (knowing how things really work) and our history of shipping high performing drivers ensures that drivers developed by Hill Driver Solutions will provide a true performance advantage.
