Re: Android, Microserver Face Time Ahead

At EE Times, we wrote about the trend toward Microservers about a year ago:

http://bit.ly/19gbkyt

One of the companies at DesignWest 2012 showcased minisevers based on dual-core 64-bit AMD processors and can use other processors, Intel & ARM included.

With lesser power consumption, I see the density of these microservers increasing in a rack unit. The potential to replace existing mainstay servers with the micro servers that are scalable and configurable is quite good!

Thanks rick. I have revealed my secret identity :) . Another question:since android as a user interface and mini cloud for embedded devices could be very useful for a variety of mcu based products, and many who design this kinds of products lack android expertise, what does he think about building tools that would enable mcu developers to easily use android, just by writing their mcu c code? Btw one half example for this is arduino handbag.

I am interested in security issues in Android and hardware security. How to battle the growing field of sofisticated attacks on software and hardware? If the signature based security is failing us against viruses and hackers, what are the defence measures for the future?

Regarding android:

Will google/motorola build phone with the jolla phone concept, i.e.phone made of two parts.One fixed and the other that acts as a changeable extension card? and if so, some more details on the types of extension cards and whether this will be open to hardware developers ?

How does he sees the android tv console market? Also, assumming they have a tv console play , since people watch tv to gain certain benefits(story,mindless relaxed fun with zero effort) which most games don't supply , do they intend to help(market, etc) those games who supply those benefits ?

What does he think about apportable, the new tool that makes it easy to port games(and in the future ,apps) from iOS to android ?

Thanks!

I think the design of the Hardware of Microservers is highly dependent on the application area of Microserver, e.g. networking appliance, firewall, printservers etc. So the design of the SoC needs to be dependent of the Area of Usage, do they have similar kind of focus in certain industrial segment? In the same way Android as well is being used in the Mobile Phones and in certain cases it has started being used in the Sat Top Boxes. Does Google is try to promote the operating system in other segments like Desktops, Equipments that Require RTOS etc.

I am sure readers of EE Times would like to know more about Google's plans for addressing the various challenges of using Androis as an embedded OS - for example, its architecture for power management. X86 support, and requirements for RAM, CPU, etc resources.

As smartphones and tablets proliferate, a lot of computing wedo is already shifting to those mobile devices.

How Google will differentiate the two is a really good question. Where do you draw the line? 

Further, as Google takes more active interest in cars, how Google envisions its software (Chrome, Android, etc.) help drive that cause, I wonder.
