NEW TAIPEI CITY/AACHEN, September 30th, 2021 – TechNexion and emteria team up to provide solution builders with ready-to-use and high-end embedded systems running managed Android. This partnership enables manufacturers of sophisticated embedded products to move quickly and seamlessly to Android while ensuring long-term availability of Android security updates and remote device manageability.
The availability of security updates, the easy provision of those updates as well as best-in-class UX (user experience) is a globally growing need for connected, user-facing embedded devices. Android as an operating system, OTA (over-the-air) updates and mobile device management (MDM) solutions meet this need. The joint offering from TechNexion, a leading manufacturer of high-quality embedded computing, machine vision and embedded systems, and emteria, the provider of managed Android and MDM services for companies with user-facing products, enable customers to not only make use of all benefits of Android in their embedded solutions but to shorten time-to-market significantly.
Delivering ready-to-use Android-based products that are supported in the long term
With the addition of Android-based emteria.OS, a managed version of Android developed by emteria, to TechNexion’s System-on-Modules (SOM), the companies are following a shared mission to deliver ready-to-use Android-based products that are supported in the long term.
“Customers that add emteria.OS on TechNexion SOMs know what they are doing right. They focus on their application and add-value. Let emteria handle the system updates and OTA patches and go to market much smoother and faster.” says Marcel vandenHeuvel, CEO at TechNexion.
Dr. Ilja Aizenberg, Managing Director at emteria, is convinced that “TechNexion SOMs complement the emteria portfolio of supported hardware perfectly and add a great offering for sophisticated, computationally intensive solutions.”
As a start of the partnership, the EDM-G-IMX8M-PLUS by TechNexion is now part of emteria’s supported hardware. The SOM can be flashed using the emteria installer as shown in this tutorial video. Test kits can be ordered directly from TechNexion.
