Android is an ideal software platform to create professional and feature-complete products with significantly reduced software development effort and improved overall time-to-market.
The Digi Application Development Kit for Android builds on the strong Android software foundation and its rich eco-system by providing a complete and easy-to-use Android application development solution that is designed to meet the specific needs of embedded developers.
About the App Kit
Ready to use right out of the box, the kit includes the Android development tools, Android platform, Digi software and API extensions, the Eclipse-based Digi ESP™ IDE, development board with ConnectCore® for i.MX module, 7” WVGA LCD panel with touch screen, and documentation.
The Digi software and API extensions also provide abstracted access to embedded peripherals and interfaces that are typically not available as part of the standard Android framework, including interfaces such as I2C and SPI. In addition, the Digi Application Development Kit for Android also implements fully transparent support for Ethernet and Wi-Fi network connectivity as well as seamless Digi Device Cloud support for Android applications.
The software support for the hardware capabilities of Digi’s ConnectCore for i.MX module family combined with the Digi extensions for Android enable customers to design Android based products without the typically complex and often difficult low-level system development effort.
Whether you want to evaluate Android as a software platform or have already decided to build an Android based product solution, the Digi Application Development Kit for Android provides a unique and true turnkey solution enabling you to immediately start your embedded Android software development.
As part of the solution, Digi offers complete expert hardware and software technical support, effectively eliminating the typically time-consuming and inefficient interaction with multiple vendors. Working with a single source reduces your design risk and keeps your projects on track.
Digi and its Embedded Development Partners also provide professional hardware and software services for any of your project specific custom design needs.
