Great, we would love to help out.

So the drivers are already written? If so, do you have pointers to
Or are these two new drivers that you need produced? If so, are they
variants of the above mentioned drivers and some changes would only need
to be made to them?

The NDA as you have attached does not allow us to create a Linux kernel
driver that would be released under the GPL. The NDA that we have at:
is the one that we have used in the past, as it allows us to properly
create a driver under the legally required license. Would you need us
to sign that? If so, you need to sign one of them as well (it's a
3-party NDA), and I can put you in contact with the correct lawyers at
the Linux Foundation to help out with this.
