KitKat BSPs support TI Sitara and BeagleBone Black #BeagleBoneBlack @TXInstruments @BeagleBoardOrg
Adeneo Embedded has announced they Android 4.4.4 board support packages (BSPs) for the TI Sitara platforms and BeagleBone Black SBC. via LinuxGizmos:
Adeneo Embedded is a Platinum Member of the TI Design Network, and has previously released a number of Linux and Android BSPs (board support packages) for Texas Instruments processors and development boards. In Feb. 2013, for example, Adeneo announced an Android BSP for the TI OMAP 5 family of system-on-chips.
Now it’s focusing its attention on TI’s well-traveled, Cortex-A8 Sitara AM335x and newer, Cortex-A9 AM437x SoCs. Both SoCs are aimed at home/industrial automation, medical devices, personal/enterprise navigation, portable data terminals, and more, says Adeneo Embedded. Adeneo’s BSPs use the latest Android 4.4.4 “KitKat” release prior to the new Android 5.0 (“Lollipop”) stack now appearing on mobile devices.
