Recent advances in Linux and Android OS make them omnipresent today in embedded systems across domains. With Google’s blessings, Android has helped create next generation of connected devices re-defining the way users are bonding with these devices. Apart of the smart phone/tablet markets, Android is establishing itself on other segments with its variants such as Android Car, Android TV, Android Watch, IOT Things etc.
A leading supplier of embedded systems development services with multi-domain expertise, Embien offers high-quality Linux and Android porting services to customer hardware platforms. Working with OEM, Tier1 and Tier2 companies, we are being one of the early adaptors of new Android versions and latest kernels. Android OS is a mix of software stacks structured in a layered architecture - Application, Framework, Middleware, Services, libraries, HAL and kernel. Android is a middleware component runs on top of virtual machine, loosely coupled with HAL and kernel. This makes android porting easier for ODM’s to focus only on kernel and HAL for OS upgrade or OTA.
Embien support customers for porting android in their custom hardware, our Key differentiators are:
We have specifically enabled Android for products in domains such as semiconductors, consumer electronics, industrial automation, automotive, medical instrumentation, office automation, etc.
Embien has done Android BSP development/porting for various products successfully including both single and multi-core systems. Some of those industry leading processors families that we have worked in porting different versions of Android OS are
As part of kernel development/porting, our dedicated team takes care of basic activities irrespective of domain.
Our dedicated project team follow a methodology-based approach to undertake development efficiently from concept through on-going production.
Known for building highest quality device drivers, Embien has worked with various devices on top of Android ecosystem. As part of device driver development/integration for custom devices, we take care of basic things such as driver Initialization, adhering to android specification/contract, performance, power management & stability.
Some of the major class of devices we worked are
Supporting such custom devices needs changes in the Android HAL layers. Device drivers has to be developed at kernel level with in the appropriate segment like a character device, block or a network device or typically under one of subsystems such as input, framebuffer, v4l2 etc. On top of that, the vendor HAL/HW service module has to be constructed usually in native code adhering to android driver specification. This native code further communicate with Android framework via Binderized HAL interface defined with HIDL. Android framework acts as a mediator connecting user application to the HAL. We have extensive hands on experience in such complex architectures at challenging timelines for custom Android Device Driver Development.
Apart of these services, Embien also offer mobile app development services to design rich android apps.
