Design Support
DRIVER SUPPORT

The majority of applications today are being developed in a combination with either Linux or Android operating systems due to their fast throughput capabilities in Wi-Fi / Bluetooth applications. RFM has available for designers Linux and Android drivers for the omap processors, or driver source code is available that can be modified for other ARM Cortex A-Series processors.
