Wind River has teamed with VIA Telecom on a multiyear project, codenamed Kunlun, to help bring low-cost Android smartphones featuring high-end capabilities to regional OEMs for the China CDMA market. The collaboration delivers an integrated software and hardware Android solution to assist OEMs in fulfilling network operator requirements.

The Android software stack at the center of Kunlun takes advantage of Wind River Platform for Android. Made to lower total cost of ownership and accelerate time-to-market for OEMs, Wind River Platform for Android has been customized to satisfy the acceptance criteria for Chinese operator networks. VIA Telecom delivered the 3G EVDO Rev. A and 1xRTT modem and telephony software and created the print circuit board assembly (PCBA) phone board hardware.

While Kunlun initially targets the China market, such integrated software and hardware offering allows a common PCBA platform to create Android devices that may be easily adapted for other markets. Devices developed from the Kunlun PCBA platform may include features such as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio, camera, touchpad, keyboard and microSD for external memory.

Wind River, as the primary system integrator of software components, provided critical elements such as overall system integration, optimization and testing. The Wind River Framework for Automated Software Testing (FAST) for Android, an automated software testing solution for Android-based devices, was used to quickly test and validate software, determining compliance with the Android Compatibility Test Suite.
