The Android project (AOSP) is an open source operating system development project supported by Google. Google oversees this project’s general direction and the bulk of development. This project contains everything necessary to build Android but misses a few things necessary for creating a market ready hardware device and these include peripheral device drivers or processor architecture related optimizations. The Code Aurora Foundation (CAF) maintained by Qualcomm, serves their SoC driven ecosystem by hosting optimized, tested Android open source code needed to provide upstream enablement.

Innovative technologies and an expanded Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem have transformed how the world connects, computes and communicates today. Consumer adoption of connected devices has exponentially increased and this can lead to potential issues with electromagnetic interference if the devices being sold do not conform to regulatory guidelines. Imagine a doctor’s handheld device’s signal interferes with the operation of a medical equipment that was being used to monitor a patient in intensive care!

The Internet of Things (IoT) connects devices that exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet. Connecting everything everywhere leads to a continuous stream of enormous data being generated and this data needs to be processed in real-time to make good use of it and drive applications.
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a key part of parallel computing on systems where the workloads are shared between the CPU, GPU and other processors. GPUs break complex problems into millions of separate tasks and work them out at once. That makes them ideal for graphics, where textures, lighting and the rendering of shapes have to be done at once to keep images flying across the screen.
Time flies as we head into July and continue to innovate in order to provide top quality products and services to our customers.
