Timesys Services for Android
With all of the buzz surrounding Android™, like most engineering teams today, you may be wondering if Android is right for your next project. Timesys Corporation Professional Services offers both Evaluation and Design services for Android to help you build Your Android offering to your specifications — and with confidence.
Android Evaluation Service
The Timesys engineering team will analyze your specific product requirements, and make recommendations tailored to meet both those requirements and your engineering teams’ Android and Linux experience. The advice will be aligned with your current engineering processes so you can decide on the next steps to take with your Android project.
The Timesys analysis will provide you with:
- Detailed information on the current set of devices on your custom board, and it will identify the ones that have Android support and those that will require development both at the Linux kernel and Android level.
- Your company-specific Android needs, such as integration of new devices, Android extension to support additional function APIs or advice on the best approach for migrating an existing product to Android.
The Android Evaluation Service includes:
- Phone consultations that will enable us to gain an understanding of your specific requirements.
