By Ryan Cohen

The variety of Android units working on Intel processors has elevated when you consider that Intel and Google introduced, in overdue 2011, that they'd be operating jointly to optimize destiny models of Android for Intel Atom processors. at the present time, Intel processors are available in Android smartphones and capsules made by way of a number of the most sensible brands of Android units, similar to Samsung, Lenovo, and Asus.

The bring up in Android units that includes Intel processors has created a requirement for Android purposes optimized for Intel structure: Android software improvement for the Intel® Platform is the fitting advent for software program engineers and cellular app builders. via well-designed app samples, code samples and case experiences, the ebook teaches Android software improvement in response to the Intel platform—including for smartphones, capsules, and embedded devices—covering functionality tuning, debugging and optimization.

This publication is together built for person studying by way of Intel software program collage and China Shanghai JiaoTong University.

The front end running the debugging procedure on the host machine is actually the client. The front end interacts with the developer who makes requests to debugging server. The debugging server receives the commands from the front end, controls application execution, and sends the results to the front end for display, as illustrated in Figure 3-6. Host Machine Target Machine Debugging Front End/Client Debugged Programs Serial port, network, etc Host Machine OS Debugging Server/Proxy Figure 3-6.

It is usually not obvious which functions are consuming most of the execution time. So we need to use specialized tools to analyze the code to accurately understand the performance bottlenecks and advise us on improvements. This process is usually called code profiling, and the tool used is called a profiler or performance analyzer. The principle of using a profiler for improving performance is to optimize the frequently called portions of the software. For example, if 50 percent of the time is spent on string functions and we optimize such functions by 10 percent, then we can reduce the execution time of the software by about 5 percent.

42 Chapter 2 ■ Intel Embedded Hardware Platform Cloud Computing In cloud computing mode, content and infrastructure are resident in the cloud (network). Cloud content consumers need only a lightweight, thin-client viewer device to participate. The essence of cloud computing is that if infrastructure cost is amortized over a sufficiently large population, many more people can participate and benefit from cloud content and services. With their relatively low price points, devices based on Intel Atom processors will be suitable for the clients of cloud computing.
