If you are looking to develop Android products, using the ARM architecture brings you the ultimate time to market advantage.
The ARM architecture serves at the standard development, test and deployment architecture for the Android platform. With a wide array of processor options, ARM enables Android devices to meet a spectrum of performance, power and functional requirements while retaining the platform and application compatibility that makes Android such a powerful force in computing.
Android on ARM will ensure your device will deliver the maximum performance, efficiency, and user experience.
The Android platform makes extensive use of the ARM instruction set and many of the architecture’s unique features to deliver maximum performance, power efficiency and user experience. Android optimizations for ARM include:
The ARM architecture and the open nature of the Android platform have given rise to a diverse ecosystem of developer materials, tools and application middleware. Android application developers today employ a range of technologies that extensively target the ARM architecture, including:
Many of the top applications in today’s marketplace directly or indirectly employ native ARM code. These applications exclusively target ARM and include:
The NDK enables developers wishing to use C, C++ or ARM assembly code in their applications. The NDK is invaluable for delivering OpenGL ES 2.0 3D content, optimal performance sensitive code, third party libraries and reusable software IP cross-platform.
The ARM Solution Center for Android (SCA) is a centralized resource for the wide range of companies and individuals innovating with the Android on the ARM architecture. Connected Community members come together to share their Android expertise, solutions and services, including:
As a member of the Open Handset Alliance, ARM works closely with other technology leaders to ensure optimized and validated solutions for the ARM architecture. Today’s Android comes designed for, optimized for, tested on, and is shipping on the ARM architecture.
In order to help developers take advantage of the widest range of Android solutions and services that are available on ARM, we launched the Solution Center for Android (SCA). The SCA already has more than 100 partners offering a wide range of solutions and services.
