Amlogic-based Designs


Smart Devices and Set-Top Boxes Based on Amlogic Chips and Android OS

Amlogic-based set-top boxes (STBs) are not just media players but feature-rich computers with the support of OTT video streaming services. Powered by Amlogic chips and Android OS, these devices are versatile to meet your business needs.
We design hybrid STBs, smart audio, IoT devices, and TVs. Collaborating with us, our customers get new mass-produced solutions, featuring Google TV or in-demand OTT services on popular platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo.

What We Offer

We have developed an STB prototype, and tested and modified its software powered by Amlogic. You can use it as a ready-made hardware and software solution for your STB product line.

Discover the additional tasks our dedicated engineering team can assist you with:


1. Custom hardware design and fast prototyping on development kits

Smart Devices Promwad

2. Development of application-level software, business logic, and UI/UX design:

  • Custom Android launchers and services to access system/hardware resources
  • Native and cross-platform Android apps
  • Web- and Qt-based apps
  • Third-party software integration (e.g. CAS/DRM libraries, DVB stack)
  • Player implementation: HLS, MPEG-DASH, Multicast

3. Development and porting of the Embedded Linux (Buildroot) and Android (AOSP) internals:

  • SDK size and build time optimisation
  • Secure boot and boot time optimisation
  • Custom software update and recovery services
  • Storage subsystem
  • Drivers for peripheral devices
  • Energy-saving algorithms and power control
  • Remote control integrations
  • OPS device support
