Optimizing the Android* Platform for Intel® Atom™ Processor-based Systems

The Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family (formerly Bay Trail), offers a range of multi-core system-on-chip (SoC) options. Based on industry-leading 22-nm process technology, these SoCs integrate the Intel® architecture core, graphics, memory, and I/O interfaces into a one-chip solution that delivers outstanding compute, graphics, and media performance.

Intel Optimizations for the Android* Software Stack

Through the Android Open Source Project, Intel has introduced a number of optimizations that allow developers to create high-performance, visually compelling Android applications that run on Intel architecture, including:

  • Device drivers that are validated and power- and memory-optimized for the x86 architecture.
  • Optimizations to the core libraries and kernel.
  • Performance enhancements to the Davlik* virtual machine for Intel architecture-based processors.
  • Tools for the Android NDK to compile native C/C++ code for the x86 architecture.
  • Optimizations for HTML5 and JavaScript*.
