e-con has developed a camera driver and integrated it to the camera subsystem of Android offering a better picture quality and perfect lossless compression with a super fine image quality that can be stored on the SD card on a less memory space involving best quality in the process of compression. Android has much to offer for developers in embedded applications beyond phones. Most of today’s embedded devices share several attributes with phones: small form-factor LCD/touch screens, rich GUIs, low-power processors, broad connectivity options (cellular, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc), battery operation, etc.
Android's camera subsystem connects the camera application to the application framework and user space libraries, which in turn communicate with the camera hardware layer that operates the physical camera. By integrating the e-con Linux camera driver onto Android, e-con has enabled Android camera application to take advantage of the camera hardware and use all the features of the camera application provided in FroYo Distribution. Allowing OEMs to realize their Android-based designs with e-con’s technical expertise on camera development in relation to optimized framework for the OMAP35x based devices.
