Wi2Wi Launches Android for its Products

Wi2Wi, Inc., a leader in Wireless System-in-Package (SIP), module, and subsystems for embedded applications, has launched Android for its new and existingproducts.Android drivers are now available for leading embedded processors for W2CBW0015 New Ultra-Small SiP-Product featuring 802.11b/g/n-WiFi & Bluetooth-3.0, as well as legacy W2CBW003 802.11b/g-WiFi & Bluetooth-2.0 and W2SW0001 802.11b/g-WiFi.
Android was first released by Google in November 2007, as an Operating System (OS) targeted at smart phones & later tablets.  Android’s success has been phenomenal.  In just a few years it’s become the most popular OS for smart phones, shipping on more than half of the phones worldwide at a rate of well over 100 million annually.

Android has much to offer in embedded applications beyond phones & specifically for Wi2Wi’s Non-Consumer markets. Tens of millions of handsets run essentially the same Android stack that an Industrial/Medical or a Smart-Home/Building device will run. There is a huge pool of users and a large community of software developers involved in more than 100,000 applications are currently available for Android.
Wi2Wi’s focused business strategy on Major-Premium-Markets combined withits solid execution have resulted in a significant number of customer-wins in its core markets of Industrial/Medical, Smart Home/Building, & Government.
“Android is an excellent fit for devices that require wireless connectivity, graphical data displays, and intuitive user interactions, and thus for a potentially significant number of Wi2Wi’s future customers in our core markets.”   Wi2Wi’s CEO Dr. Reza Ahy noted, “It is a complete operating system, middleware layer, and application layer that runs on top of a Linux foundation. It already has strong device and communication protocol support, and there is a huge inventory of Android applications that add functionality and open these devices up to back-end, instantly-deployable solutions.”

Wi2Wi will be completing Android support for its main products in 2012.   Android can provide capabilities such as:  Application framework enabling reuse and replacement of components.Virtual machine optimized for portable/mobile devices.Integrated browser based on the open source WebKit engine. Optimized graphics powered by a custom 2D graphics library. SQLite for structured data storage. Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats (MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, and GIF).Android provides a rich development environment including a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory,performance profiling, and a plug-in for the Eclipse IDE, valuable for some of Wi2Wi’s markets.
