‘Accelerated’ Android 4.0 available on ARM dev boards

'Accelerated' Android 4.0 available on ARM dev boardsLinaro, a not-for-profit engineering organization consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, today announced the availability of builds of Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) supporting accelerated graphics on two of its member’s low cost development boards: the Samsung Origen and ST-Ericsson Snowball boards.

“Linaro uses the latest GCC 4.6 toolchain to build Android, enabling Linaro’s Android to outperform standard Android builds in benchmarks and real-world tasks,” the organization claimed in a press release. The accelerated and optimized builds are now available for download to help ease develpment on hardware for its member companies, and previously showed videos of Android 4.0.1 running on Pandaboard from Texas Instrtruments, as well as Freescale i.MX53 Quickstart board.

4.0.1 ICS version of Android, Linaro showed videos of it running on the Texas Instruments (TI) PandaBoard and shortly after that on the Freescale i.MX53 Quick Start board, the Samsung Origen board and ST-Ericsson’s Snowball board. The accelerated graphics support that has been made available today makes use of the ARM Mali-400 graphics processor used by two of these boards. This graphics processor is integrated with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor: on the Samsung Origen board in Samsung’s Exynos 4210 SoC, and on the ST-Ericsson Snowball board in ST-Ericsson’s Nova A9500 SoC.

Developers are able to create optimized Linux-based devices with the support of Linaro. The 4.6 toolchain allows developers to optimize for the latest SoCs like ST-Ericsson’s Nova A9500 processor and Samsung’s Exynos4210, which leads to an improved user experience. Furthermore, the toolchain gives early access to the performance improvements Linaro has been developing in the next release of GCC, as well as the many correctness fixes identified and provided through working with the Linaro community.

Linaro operates openly, and these accelerated builds are the latest downloads enabling advanced product development on hardware from its member companies. Linaro’s goal is to provide consolidated and optimized open source software building blocks that provide companies with a foundation on which they can rapidly build and deliver innovative, differentiated solutions.
