SUNNYVALE, California and AHMEDABAD, India, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Company to Provide Deep Android Expertise and Automated Test Acceleration Framework

eInfochips, a leading engineering services company, today announced an initiative to
accelerate time-to-market for products based on the soon-to-be-released Android 4.4
operating system, otherwise known as Kit-Kat. The new Kit-Kat version of Android has
tremendous potential for performance improvements that in turn will ensure a competitive
edge for early adopters. In addition, Kit-Kat is expected to extend Android penetration
into niche embedded systems such as home automation appliances, medical equipment, and
wearable devices. To assist systems manufacturers who want to move quickly at this
inflection point, eInfochips has assembled a comprehensive array of Android engineering
services [http://www.slideshare.net/eInfochips_Solution/e-infochips-androidexpertise ] and
test products. eInfochips will be demonstrating its suite of services and products at the
Android Developers Conference, November 12-15 in San Francisco.

“Getting to market fast with a reliable product is the key to profitability,” said
Frank Berry, senior analyst, IT Brand Pulse. “Plugging gaps in hardware, software or
automated testing is critical in achieving this goal, and where eInfochips will play a key
role in the Kit-Kat market.”

Android Expertise and Automation Speed Time to Market

Optimizing the time to market of a product requires extensive Android engineering
experience and expertise
[https://www.einfochips.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=314&Itemid=1003&catid=2 ]
. Gaps in these skills can negatively affect design quality, lengthen time to
market, and ultimately reduce profitability. Having contributed to over 500 hardware and
software product designs, eInfochips can fill such gaps with skills and experience needed
for platform porting, multi-media integration, application development, and performance

Automated testing is the second key factor in achieving fast time-to-market and
maximum profitability. To efficiently test Android systems across the many versions of the
Android OS, hardware components, and applications, it is essential to have highly
automated test capabilities. In response to this need, eInfochips has pioneered an Android
test framework which extends to Kit-Kat, allowing appliance manufacturers to completely
automate their system and application testing to ensure higher quality products.

According to Parag Mehta, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer for
eInfochips, “eInfochips’ Android expertise, combined with extensive experience developing
embedded systems [https://www.einfochips.com/technical-expertise/software ], wearable
devices, medical equipment [https://www.einfochips.com/industry-focus/medical-devices ],
avionics systems [https://www.einfochips.com/industry-focus/aerospace ], home and office
automation platforms, and consumer appliances
[https://www.einfochips.com/industry-focus/consumer-devices ], helps customers achieve
faster time-to-market with fewer resources. As part of our Android Initiative, eInfochips
plans to unveil a powerful new automated test system at AnDevCon
[http://www.andevcon.com/AndevCon_sanfrancisco/index.html ] in November, including
framework supporting Kit-Kat.”
