One paper from Solid State Supplies, entitled "Android for Embedded Devices", will explain the benefits of using the Android operating system for device development and will introduce the tools and solutions available to help engineers and programmers get started.
It will also compare the Android operating system to embedded Linux systems and other RTOSs.
“Many developers are adopting Android as an embedded platform," said Matt Cook, business development manager, Solid State Supplies. “Android has proven to provide a stable kernel and a huge library of open source code and device drivers. It also has no royalties or licence fees and benefits from a global development community. It’s an attractive choice for developers.”
The 2014 Device Developers’ Conference will take place over four dates and four locations.
Starting with Bristol on Tuesday 20th May, the event will then visit Cambridge (22nd May), Manchester (3rd June) and Scotland (5th June).
Attendance at the Device Developers' Conference, including the extensive agenda of 40-minute presentations, is free to engineers and project managers working in the technology sector.
The half-day workshops are subject to a small charge.
