Operators are looking continuously to expand the breadth of their broadband service offering to consumers. Converging the Internet, multimedia applications and widgets into one device, and wirelessly delivering this mix of information and applications around the home, the multimedia tablet helps operators meet this goal. At the same time, given today's era of transparency and collaboration that enables maximum flexibility, operators are looking to develop their service offering in an open-source environment.
Recognizing these industry demands, DSP Group® offers its Google Android® based multimedia tablet reference design. Part of DSP Group's connected multimedia screen family and based on DSP Group's XpandR® chipset family, the reference design is a cost-effective, comprehensive software/hardware solution comprised of an operating system, middleware and applications. Integrating the open-source Android framework, the reference design results in not only increased freedom of choice, but also greater and immediate access to a wide range of information, applications and widgets offered by developers.
Featuring a customizable interface, the multimedia tablet can be personalized to fit any lifestyle. And with an always-on Internet connection, the highly portable device ensures that users' favorite sources of information, communications and entertainment are always at their fingertips.
With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and DSP Group's DMW74 ARM-based processing power, the reference design helps deliver an enhanced user experience. By enabling touch screen and on-screen keyboard capabilities, users enjoy an intuitive Internet browsing experience while accessing their favorite web pages and social networking sites anywhere in the home.
