Android Porting and Migration Services

Since the introduction of the open-source Android platform for mobile phones by Google, there has been a significant interest in the OEM community to migrate and customize Android for other embedded platforms. At Embien, we offer specialized Android porting and migration services that facilitate the applications developed for a different platform to be deployed on Android.

Being one of the early adaptors of Android and design house partners for leading silicon vendors, we are uniquely poised to bring up the OS quickly in the end product. Also, with its deep insight in C, C++, Java and Java Native Interface (JNI) technologies, Embien can quickly adopt your existing code base to Android. Based on the specific requirement/architectural suitability, we have integrated the legacy application either as a System Service via AIDL, as a HAL component, as a daemon or as a completely re-written app.
