Application Development Kit
Digi International Digi® Application Development Kit for Android™ builds on the strong Android software foundation and its rich eco-system by providing a complete and easy-to-use Android application development solution that is designed to meet the specific needs of embedded developers. Android is an ideal software platform to create professional and feature-complete products with significantly reduced software development effort and improved overall time-to-market.
Ready to use right out of the box, the kit includes the Android development tools, Android platform, Digi software and API extensions, the Eclipse-based Digi ESP™ IDE, development board with ConnectCore® for i.MX module, 7" WVGA LCD panel with touch screen, and documentation. The Digi software and API extensions also provide abstracted access to embedded peripherals and interfaces that are typically not available as part of the standard Android framework, including interfaces such as I2C and SPI. In addition, the Digi Application Development Kit for Android also implements fully transparent support for Ethernet and Wi-Fi network connectivity as well as seamless iDigi Device Cloud support for Android applications.
The software support for the hardware capabilities of Digi's ConnectCore for i.MX module family combined with the Digi extensions for Android enable customers to design Android based products without the typically complex and often difficult low-level system development effort.
