What we do

If you want to develop add-on or peripheral products with custom components that extend the capabilities of Macintosh, our team at Integra Sources is at your service. The macOS kernel is based on a modified Unix kernel. It replaces the traditional Unix driver architecture with I/O Kit, an object-oriented driver development framework. In our macOS device driver development, we use I/O Kit to create in-kernel or application-level drivers for hardware devices.

What's included?

Our macOS driver development services include peripheral integration including kernel-level driver development, virtual driver development, and implementation of daemons and other low-level system services for macOS.





We've helped more than 40 companies and individuals build solutions used by millions of people

Our driver programming experience includes:

  • User space USB Drivers
  • Kernel space PCI/PCIe devices
  • Drivers for audio devices
  • Drivers for web cameras
  • Drivers for video recording devices
  • Drivers for wireless devices

Do I need to certify my driver?

Yes, you do. You need to get a certificate in your developer console and sign the driver.

Could you develop a Mac OS X driver based on my current Linux driver?

Yes, we provide custom Mac OS X device driver development and can create mac OS X drivers based on other operating systems, including Linux and Windows.

I’m planning to develop new hardware. Can you help me with porting my existing macOS driver?

Certainly. We can perform macOS or Mac OS X driver development from scratch or port your existing driver for the new hardware.
