AMD working on Android drivers

Posted on Friday, April 08 2011 @ 00:08:43 CEST by

X-bit Labs noticed AMD is hiring programmers to develop drivers for Google's Android operating system. The news hints AMD intends to optimize its drivers for media players and possibly even smartphones.
AMD is currently looking for Android driver development engineers to help it evolve its Linux driver stack for new platforms and “in line with the development trends in the Android ecosystem”. In particular, AMD wants the candidate(s) to have experience with video decode acceleration within the Android web browser or video player application. Additionally, AMD is searching for an Android/MIPI driver architect, who will bring up driver development and qualification on new hardware platforms among other things.

The company wants programmers, who have experience not only with Linux in general and Android in particular, but who have experience with AMBA/Mipi/CSI/SPI device programming, including touchscreen controllers, GPS, compass/accelerometers, cellphone and cameras. The requirements clearly point to AMD’s intentions to optimize its drivers for media tablets like Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab and, possibly, smartphones.
