FUJISOFT developed a Graphics Accelerator IP core that can boost graphical processing when using an Altera SoC device. We implemented a smooth-running Android OS onto Altera SoC to demonstrate the IP's performance capabilities. FUJISOFT created an Android platform that includes the standard open source Android OS verion 4.0.4 ICS running on top of the Linux Kernal from Altera's BSP. Android graphics processing is supported in the FPGA using the FUJISOFT IP core.
Android has grown to be the number one smartphone operating system. While Android continues to be the most popular OS for smartphones and tablets, it is also being adopted for other embedded devices and industrial equipment. However, high-performance CPUs are rarely used in embedded applications and the implementation of relatively low-performing CPUs will slow down the Android drawing process. This product is the solution!
