Digi launches embedded application development kit for Android
Digi International's application development kit for Android is what the company claims to be the industry's first such kit, including drivers and unique Digi software extensions to easily create Android-based applications on embedded platforms while eliminating what is typically months of tedious driver development work. The included iDigi Cloud Connector for Android enables customers, with literally a single line of software code, to completely cloud enable their devices.
The Digi Application Development Kit for Android includes the module peripheral drivers and APIs necessary for product development, including Ethernet, Wi-Fi and others. With support for the ConnectCore Wi-i.MX53 and ConnectCore Wi-i.MX51 wireless modules, Digi provides a complete integrated development environment and a single source for hardware and software.
Embedded applications can be created in Java with no specialized hardware knowledge enabling programmers with Java and Android application expertise to develop software for embedded products. Devices developed with the Digi Application Development Kit for Android can also connect to the iDigi Device Cloud.
The iDigi Device Cloud offers massive scalability and instant connectivity to network-connected devices. It provides the infrastructure required to access and control devices over the Internet and offers a high degree of scalability, reliability and security. The Digi Application Development Kit for Android includes a 7" LCD touchscreen and is ready to use out of the box.
