Android Things Approved IoT Development Kit

Fast development and time-to-market at predictable scaling costs are critical for success in the IoT market. At the same time, because IoT devices are embedded systems and have connectivity requirements, developing software is more complex and requires a greater investment of resources. Android Things is a new version of Android designed to meet these IoT development challenges head on. It is a lightweight embedded OS that enables secure local and cloud connectivity over multiple wireless protocols. Moreover, Google manages the BSP and provides security via verified boot and Google managed updates.

TechNexion Providing the Crucial Hardware Compatibility

TechNexion has been chosen to provide the hardware development platform part of this puzzle. Working with Google, we have developed several system-on-modules, starter and full experience kits based on the i.MX6UL and i.MX7 application processor family from NXP Semiconductors. Our i.MX6UL system-on-module, PICO-IMX6UL is a low power, ultra-efficient system, while our i.MX7 system-on-module, PICO-IMX7-AT, has more powerful processing options and more advanced features. Both platforms have been qualified and tested by Google to run Android Things at optimal performance.
