ARM Unveils Free Toolkit To Boost Android App Development

As its less-power architecture growth is increasingly popular with mobile device and smart phone manufacturers, the British chip licensor, ARM has announced on Monday a new, free and easy-to-use toolkit that will enable Android app developers to create native software for Android powered devices.

The “DS-5 CE” or the ARM Development Studio 5 Community Edition toolkit, which is a free version of ARM’s current Development Studio, is said to run apps up to four times faster than the traditional Java code. The kit also consists the standard SDK and the NDK Android development kits by providing tools optimized for energy-efficiency.ARM

“With over half a million apps on the Android market today, developers need to deliver an outstanding user experience to succeed commercially,” said John Cornish, executive vice president and general manager, system design division, ARM, in a statement. “ARM DS-5 Community Edition provides developers an easy to use environment for debugging and optimizing C/C++ code. This allows them to take full advantage of ARM processor technology using native code to deliver the performance and functionality that consumers demand.”

ARM said that the the DS-5 CE is going to ease the common developer pain by providing an integrated graphical debugger for NDK-generated code, along with the visibility into advanced processor information, containing the ARM NEON Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) registers. The kit will as well allow the development of Java and C/C++ code within the same Eclipse integrated development environment.

The DS-5 CE consists of a tailored version of the ARM Streamline Performance Analyzer. That means, developers can now capture system performance specs, pinpoint “hotspots” within their code, and recognize potential causes, ARM said.

However, Intel (NSDQ:INTC) also made a similar move in the earlier time of this month with the its launch of the $100 million Intel Capital AppUp Fund. The fund is aimed at boosting of investments made in the software companies developing apps and digital content for several mobile devices and computers based on the Intel architecture.

ARM’s DS-5 CE is available for users to download freely online. It is can be use by individuals and organizations with an yearly revenue of $100,000 or less, and have up to 10 employees working together.
