Android Application Development for the Intel® Platform by Ryan Cohen

By Ryan Cohen

The variety of Android units operating on Intel processors has elevated on account that Intel and Google introduced, in overdue 2011, that they'd be operating jointly to optimize destiny models of Android for Intel Atom processors. at the present time, Intel processors are available in Android smartphones and pills made through a few of the most sensible brands of Android units, similar to Samsung, Lenovo, and Asus.

The raise in Android units that includes Intel processors has created a requirement for Android purposes optimized for Intel structure: Android program improvement for the Intel® Platform is the appropriate advent for software program engineers and cellular app builders. via well-designed app samples, code samples and case reports, the publication teaches Android program improvement according to the Intel platform—including for smartphones, drugs, and embedded devices—covering functionality tuning, debugging and optimization.

This publication is together built for person studying by way of Intel software program university and China Shanghai JiaoTong University.

The Intel NUC Kit DE3815TYKHE, shown in Figure 2-7, is built with an Intel Atom processor for intelligent systems and is a pint-sized unit for value-conscious businesses and organizations. This low-cost, low-power solution introduces many firsts to the Intel NUC form factor: a fanless thermal solution for the ultimate silence and reliability, onboard flash storage for small-footprint software solutions, internal flat-panel display connectivity for built-in screens, a video graphics array (VGA) port for monitor compatibility in legacy installations, a serial ports header for peripherals requiring the robustness of hardware handshaking, a watchdog timer for resilient system availability, and inter-integrated circuit (I2C) and pulse-width modulation (PWM) signals for interfacing with sensors and other embedded devices enabling the IoT.

Because pointers are very common in programs, this can increase cache sizes and have an impact on performance. Register count can strongly influence performance of an application. RAM is slow compared to on-CPU registers. CPU caches help to increase the speed of applications, but accessing cache does result in a performance hit. The amount of the performance increase is dependent on how well the compiler can optimize for a 64-bit environment. Compute-intensive applications that are able to do the majority of their processing in a small amount of memory see significant performance increases because a large percentage of the application can be stored on the CPU registers.

Seamless video playback is supported by high-performance, low-power hardware acceleration of media encode and decode. Intel System on Chip (SoC) Unlike desktop devices, the processor, chipset, graphics, motherboard, and other components cannot be independently manufactured, configured, and then assembled in embedded systems due to constraints of volume and space; otherwise, they would be too large, consume too much power, have impractically complex designs, and have unstable layouts similar to desktops.
