Alberto Embedded & Open experience

Notes on my experience on Open Source Embedded Systems

On Android smoothness

with 2 comments

Currently I am working on Android optimizations for Freescale i.MX SoCs.

I am frustrate because of a lot of CPU utilization in jobs where the load should not be as heavy as it looks.. But I am working on! And solutions are coming up.
I found by chance this  Freescale video, where one Freescale engineer present the opportunity to develop Android based embedded projects on an MPC8536 (Power III based SoC that works at 1.25 GHz) provided board.
He say “Optimized implementation of  Android operating system” but look at time 2:18! How smooth is this Optimized implementation 🙂

  1. Hi Alberto,

    I’m also working with Android and FSL i.MX processor.

    What processor model are you using? I’m using i.MX51 processor.

    • Sorry, for late approval&response..
      I am working with i.MX31 Application processors, but stuffs are done to moving to the same as your.

      To have a good User experience in Android, stuffs must be done in optimizing the graphical callback to use all the power of instruction set and/or all the power that hardware provide.

      Best Regards,
