Texas Instruments has launched a new development kit that brings Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) to TI�s Sitara AM335x Cortex-A8 processors. According to the company, the complete software offering allows designers to fully evaluate Android 4.1.2 on embedded applications running on TI�s Sitara processors for easier navigation.

Sitara ARM developers can now take advantage of Android 4.1.2 for low-power applications, including wearable gadgets such as watches, goggles, display panels for home appliances and automation, enterprise tablets, point-of-sale terminals, portable navigation devices and industrial automation.

The Android 4.1.2 development kit provides a stable software foundation for Sitara AM335x processor-based products. The kit is fully tested using the Android compatibility test suite on the AM335x evaluation module (EVM), AM335x Starter Kit and BeagleBone development boards, and a number of BeagleBone Cape Plug-in Boards such as the LCD7 Cape, DVI-D Cape and Camera Cape.

TI�s Android 4.1.2 development kit also features integrated Android Open Accessory protocol support, allowing connectivity to any Android-based accessory with AM335x products; haptics feedback, accelerometer, and ambient light sensors; soft navigation keys, supported on landscape displays to help customers build products without any mechanical keys on-board; multiple USB features, including USB pen drive support and USB-based camera capture and preview; 3D graphics using Imagination Technologies' POWERVR SGX OpenGL accelerator drivers and libraries; and application notes, guides and test results to help developers with their designs.

The Android 4.1.2 development kit for TI�s Sitara ARM Cortex-A8 processors is available for free download.
