Modular device platform: Android Device Kit

Quickly to the customized Android™ device

Whether it’s an X-ray system or a coating thickness gauge – in addition to technical functionality, easy, logical operability is one of the factors that determine the success of technical devices.
A modular platform solution helps to develop and manufacture customer-specific, industry-suitable operator interfaces cost-efficiently.

This is where the ACD Group comes in: The German company, which specializes in industrial-grade Android™ products, has developed a modular embedded platform that allows professional users to assemble a product tailored to their requirements. Standard components provide a stable basis, while the modular system ensures sensible adaptability. The operating system used is Android™ Industrial+ – a highly secure variant of the popular operating system optimized for professional use.

Modular Android™ device building kit “Made in Germany”

The basis of the industrial platform is the baseboard. CPU, radio and GPS modules can be plugged onto it. The CPU board is equipped with an i.MX8M mini processor from NXP, which is based on the energy-efficient ARM architecture.
Whether stationary medical technology system or mobile handheld computer: The intended use determines the required display area of the user interface. For this reason, the Android™ device building kit offers a choice of pre-qualified touch screens with diagonals of 3.5 inches, 4.8 inches and 10.1 inches.

Reliable wireless connectivity is provided by WLAN in accordance with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/d/h/e/i/r/k/w/v (2.4/5 GHz) and Bluetooth 5.0. A GPS module with integrated antenna can determine the location if required. In addition, the Android™ device construction kit provides further interfaces, sensors and components with which the operating solution can be further customized.

In industrial use, the focus is on data and system security as well as long-term availability. ACD has therefore decided to develop an industrial-grade version of the popular Android™ mobile operating system. Android™ Industrial+ combines system security and lifetime support with the modern user interface familiar from Android™ smartphones. It is independent of third-party providers, and all source code is held by the manufacturer in Germany. At the same time, however, it functions like a standard Android™ operating system.
