Testing and Long Term Support

Contact Us Contact Us

Linaro is tirelessly working to improve the quality of operating system kernels such as Linux and Zephyr by providing the software tools and processes to allow continuous build, functional testing and regression detection.

We specialise in rapid deployment of automated testing and have created (and maintain) projects such as LAVA (Linaro’s Automated Validation Architecture) and LKFT (Linaro’s Kernel Functional Test) to help maintain the quality of the kernel.

In addition to our expertise in Linux testing, we are known for our strong track record in kernel engineering. Linaro has been ranked in the top ten contributors to each release of the Linux kernel, both in terms of companies and employees for many years now.

All of this expertise is available to you through Linaro Developer Services.
