Android, Linux and Real-time Development for Embedded Systems
On-demand Web Seminar
Many developers have selected Linux for embedded applications, taking advantage of its open source distribution and the very large range of middleware and drivers that are available. This session considers how and when Linux is appropriate, identifies some of the challenges encountered with its deployment and approaches to overcome them.
Many developers have selected Linux for embedded applications, taking advantage of its open source distribution and the very large range of middleware and drivers that are available. This session considers how and when Linux is appropriate, identifies some of the challenges encountered with its deployment and approaches to overcome them. Android is an open source platform built by Google that includes an operating system, middleware and applications for the development of devices employing cellular communications. This session takes a look at the design of Android, how it works and how it may be deployed to accelerate the development of a connected device. Along with guidelines to getting started with Android, the Android SDK, its available tools and resources will be reviewed and consideration given to applications for Android beyond conventional mobile handsets such as medical devices, consumer electronics and military/aerospace systems. A brief review of how Android or Linux can co-exist with an RTOS in multi-core designs will also be conducted.
What You Will Learn
- What the Android platform is and how it works
- How Android facilitates the implementation of cellular communication for non-handset applications
- What tools and services are available to help deploy Android
- How Android co-exists with an RTOS in multi-core designs
