ARM announces Solution Center for Android
ARM, the manufacturer of microprocessors and microcontrollers used in mobile and embedded electronics, has announced that it is launching a new resource for designers and developers of ARM-based products running Google's open source Android mobile operating system. According to ARM, more than 35 members of the ARM Connected Community, including Archos, Mentor Graphics and Texas Instruments, have already joined the Solution Center for Android (SCA).
The Solution Center for Android is aimed at developers that are new to Android or to ARM. The goal of the initiative is to provide "the widest range of Android resources for ARM architecture", including development tools, complete Android solutions, software components, services and training. Kevin Smith, VP Segment Marketing at ARM said "The Solution Center for Android serves as a one-stop guide to provide developers with the tools and information they need to create innovative devices with applications that satisfy consumers' needs,".
To date, ARM has shipped more than 10 billion ARM processors in mobile devices, many of which run Linux-based operating systems.
