Wind River® has optimized the Android operating system to speed up the boot process, provide determinism, and improve real-time performance with two different technologies:
- Accelerated boot: This technology can speed up the Android boot time by 30%. It is hardware agnostic and can run on different hardware platforms with little or no customization effort.
- Hyper boot: To address more aggressive boot-time requirements, hyper boot implements a hibernation-like technology to enable Android devices to resume from RAM in less than one second and from Flash in eight seconds. A small amount of power is required to keep the RAM refreshed during power off.
