MIPS to build community for Android developers

MIPS Technologies has launched a developer community for software developers working with the Android platform, writes Richard Wilson.

The online community will also be relevant for anyone developing Linux operating system based applications on MIPS-based hardware.

“This new community demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the vibrant open source effort around the MIPS cores and architecture,” said Art Swift, v-p of marketing and business development at MIPS Technologies.

Resources available via the community website will include:

  • Android on MIPS source code,
  • porting instructions,
  • a native development kit (NDK) for Android applications development on MIPS, and
  • other Android resources.

There will be Linux on MIPS resources including kernel source code, as well as downloadable development tools including the MIPS Navigator Integrated Component Suite (ICS) integrated development environment and GCC compilers for MIPS.
