Linux and Android are having a bulk of market share when it comes to embedded devices. Android OS is an open source operating system developed and managed by Google. Though initially started as an OS for smart phones nowadays Android is finding huge applications in many other applications including Industrial HMIs, medical devices, automotive infotainment systems, PoS terminals etc. It is also gaining traction as Windows replacement in many such use cases.
The evolution of the OS is tightly controlled by Google, there by guaranteeing stability and portability. It is the most used OS in the mobile segment due to its advanced and flexible architecture. It supports all the necessary features for a modern computing system including advanced graphics, touch gestures, MEMS devices and sensors etc. Also Android supports multi-core systems with advanced power management features. The mobile applications run on top of a Virtual Machine enabling the app being run on any kind on hardware running Android.
Such a list of powerful features need a similar underlying hardware platform as well. The source code of the Android OS along with basic features typically stands at around 13GB. And after building the total space consumed is around 45G. On top of this, there are numerous customization to be done to enable the Android to run on the target hardware besides porting the Linux kernel to it. So a special set of skill is needed to develop Android for embedded systems. A deep understanding of the Android OS combined with experience differentiates any Android development services offering.
Embien is the right partner for your services requirements of any complexity. As One-stop shop, Embien has proven expertise in embedded Android development services including porting Linux and Android to different embedded single board computers and custom hardware. Our embedded engineers are working with various versions of these software's as they evolve over time and hence they have an in-depth understanding of the internals of the Linux and Android.
Our key strengths are that we work not towards achieving functionality but rather achieving performance. Our embedded Android development team is trained to meet the strict needs of lowest power consumption coupled with highest performance. Our ports have small footprints offering enhanced functionalities. And our extensive experience enables us to achieve the best out of Android and Linux systems, run them reliably with highest possible performance on targets.
While it is true that most of the silicon/board vendors provide Android OS support for their processors and targets, it is quiet far from what is actually needed to make it a product class software. The source will be sufficient to evaluate the system but never to deploy it in numbers out in field. Our Android Linux development Services team can help you bridge the differences and develop best Android products. To enable Android device commercialization, we have done numerous developments including Android boot optimization, battery optimization, developing custom Android widgets etc. Kindly check the following pages for details of our offerings for Android development on Linux systems:
