ORBexpress for Android selected for Editor's Choice Award

HERNDON, VA – July 25, 2011
– Objective Interface Systems, Inc. (OIS) today announced that PC/104 and Small Form Factors magazine selected ORBexpress for Android for its Editor’s Choice Award. ORBexpress for Android continues OIS’s success in delivering high-performance communications middleware solutions to the embedded market.

ORBexpress for Android is a lightweight, easy-to-use communications framework that connects disparate systems. Developers of Android apps can now extend their apps to other devices, systems and enterprise networks and applications. This framework enables Android apps to communicate with applications and other devices everywhere.

“Android’s current software development kit makes connecting apps easy on the same device, but off the device is out of the question. The ORBexpress framework, on the other hand, drills down on Android to connect Android apps to PCs, other mobile devices, enterprise networks, and pretty much anything else,” said Monique DeVoe, Assistant Managing Editor at PC/104 and Small Form Factors. “The background communication and data exchange between the different devices aims for lightning-fast UI response times. And, it’s reliable enough to use in mission-critical systems.”

ORBexpress is a proven communications framework that enhances time to market. Developers using ORBexpress for Android can focus on their unique application development challenges and not building custom connectivity protocols. ORBexpress seamlessly opens up Android apps to the world with the simplicity of an open standard framework that is widely deployed and well supported.

PC/104 and Small Form Factors magazine continues to lead OpenSystems Media’s focus on providing top-notch resources for engineers in the embedded boards and systems industry. This magazine does a terrific job keeping engineers informed of changing industry standards while promoting the development and use of small form factor products,” said Joe Jacob, Senior VP at OIS.  “OIS is pleased to receive this recognition for our ORBexpress for Android product.”
