Posted by Charbax – March 7, 2013

Here's the third session by Karim Yaghmour on Embedded Android at Linaro Connect 2013. Also watch session 1 and session 2.

ARM Chromebooks at Linaro Connect 2013

Posted by Charbax – March 6, 2013

Riku Voipio of Linaro, Andrew Wafaa of ARM, Olof Johannson of Google, Sonny Rao of Google and Marcin Juszkiewicz of Linaro talk about hacking and using the full performance of the ARM Powered Samsung Chromebook to run Ubuntu, Debian, Open Suse on this ARM Powered laptop, talking about how much the Mali-T604 is being used in this ARM Powered Chrome OS, which feature improvements the ARM Powered Chromebook may get to possibly improve battery life, and a bit about the possibility of running Chromium OS or Chrome OS on older/cheaper ARM Powered laptops such as ARM Cortex-A9 and previous.

Karim Yaghmour Presents Embedded Android #2 – Working with the AOSP

Posted by Charbax – March 6, 2013

Presented by Karim Yaghmour, CEO of Opersys Inc.

While Android has been created for mobile devices -- phones first and now tablets -- it can, nonetheless, be used as the basis of any touch-screen system, whether it be mobile or not. Essentially, Android is a custom-built embedded Linux distribution with a very elaborate and rich set of user-space abstractions, APIs, services and virtual machine. This four-part workshop is aimed at embedded developers wanting to build touch-based embedded systems using Android. It will cover Android from the ground up, enabling developers to get a firm hold on the components that make up Android and how they need to be adapted to an embedded system.

Specifically, Karim tarts by introducing Android's overall architecture and then proceeds to peel Android's layer one-by-one. First, he covers the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the open source project under which Android's source code is released. He then digs into the native Android user-space, Android's power tools, and covers how hardware support is implemented in Android. Given that Android is built on top of Linux, he also goes over some embedded Linux tricks and sees how the kernel is modified to support the Android user-space. In addition, he looks at the System Server, the Android Framework and core Android applications, and how to customize them.
