Adeneo Embedded has introduced its Android KitKat 4.4.4 board support packages (BSPs) for the Sitara AM335x and AM437x development platforms from TI. According to the company, the BSPs are offered as a comprehensive tool for developers of applications that include automotive and navigation, medical and healthcare, energy and industrial.

TI's Sitara AM335x and AM437x processors, based respectively on ARM Cortex-A8 and ARM Cortex-A9 cores, are designed with the right set of highly integrated peripherals and low-power architectures, the company stated. They are geared for developing home/industrial automation, medical devices, personal/enterprise navigation, portable data terminals and many other consumer and industrial applications.

Adeneo indicated that it is capitalising on its Linux and application development expertise to help OEMs port Android to multiple architectures such as Sitara, OMAP or ''Jacinto''. The company can also develop and debug libraries by adding additional code to bring up Android on OEMs' devices, and building applications running on OEMs' solution (handheld terminal, tablet and other devices).

In addition, Adeneo has the capability to optimise any BSP with boot-time improvement; API's and provide Android SDK. The company can also migrate only a part of Android KitKat to an older version of Android such as Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich and use the NDK-JNI technologies to merge existent useful software into new Android systems.

The upcoming BSP's will support the AM335x EVM, AM335x Starter Kit, BeagleBone Black and AM437x EVM, TI platforms.
