Android Things is a new version of Android aimed at enabling faster development of secure connected devices for the Internet of things (loT.) Android Things is a lightweight embedded OS that enables both local and cloud connectivity over multiple wireless protocols. Android Things delivers security at the scale you need it via Google-managed updates and verified boot.
Fast development & time to market at predictable scaling costs are critical for success in the IoT market. To enable Android Things hardware platforms to meet these goals NXP has worked with Google and selected two development platforms based on the i.MX6 UltraLite and 7Dual applications processor from TechNexion and VVDN Technologies. Both platforms have been qualified and tested by Google to run Android Things at optimal performance and so carry the Android Things logo.
