1 Introduction

FriendlyThings是友善电子开发的一套安卓硬件开发SDK(函数库),安卓软件开发者可以通过它在Android应用程序中编程访问和控制ARM主板上的各种硬件资源,比如Uart, SPI, I2C, GPIO等接口,它基于Android-NDK技术开发,开发者无需掌握底层的嵌入式知识(尤其是驱动程序),就可以构建基于安卓系统的各种IoT物联网应用。

4 快速使用入门

4.1 (第1步) 集成libfriendlyarm-things.so到你的app


git clone

接着复制 libs 目录下的所有内容到你的工程目录下,然后在你的Android项目的src目录下创建com/friendlyarm目录,将java/FriendlyThings目录拷贝进去即可,最后的目录的结构看上去是这样的 (注:AndroidStudio的项目可能会稍有不同,但大致如此):

├── AndroidManifest.xml
├── libs
│   ├── arm64-v8a
│   │   └──
│   └── armeabi
│       └──
├── src
│   └── com
│       └── friendlyarm
│           ├── FriendlyThings
│           │   ├──
│           │   ├──
│           │   ├──
│           │   ├──
│           │   ├──
│           │   ├──
│           │   └──

使用以下方法导入它们,主要的接口都集中在 HardwareControler.java文件中:

import com.friendlyarm.FriendlyThings.HardwareControler;
import com.friendlyarm.FriendlyThings.SPIEnum;
import com.friendlyarm.FriendlyThings.GPIOEnum;
import com.friendlyarm.FriendlyThings.FileCtlEnum;
import com.friendlyarm.FriendlyThings.BoardType;

4.2 (第2步) 让你的app拥有system权限

请参考下面的方法修改你 app 的 AndroidManifest.xml 和 Android.mk这两个文件;

4.2.1 修改AndroidManifest.xml



4.2.2 修改

编写一个Android.mk文件(最简单的方法就是拷贝示例中的Android.mk文件),修改Android.mk文件,加入LOCAL_CERTIFICATE := platform这一行:

LOCAL_PATH:= $(call my-dir)
include $(CLEAR_VARS)
LOCAL_SRC_FILES := $(call all-subdir-java-files)
LOCAL_CFLAGS := -lfriendlyarm-hardware
include $(BUILD_PACKAGE)

4.3 (最后1步) 在 Android源代码中编译你的app

先在 Android源代码根目录调用 导出环境变量,然后进入你的 app 目录,使用mm命令编译;
例子:编译 GPIO_LED_Demo,以RK3399平台为例:

cd rk3399-android-8.1
cd vendor/friendlyelec/apps/GPIO_LED_Demo

请参考这份WiKi文档:FriendlyThings APIs

6 Code Samples

7 Compile & Deploy Andorid Code (SerialPortDemo)

7.1 Step 1. Import source code in eclipse (SerialPortDemo)

Start eclipse, click on "Import" on its main window's File menu and then select "Existing Android Code Into Workspace" to import your source code
We name this project as "SerialPortDemo"

  • AndroidHW01.png
  • AndroidHW02.png

7.2 Step 2. Edit source code

The names of serial devices this DEMO accesses are listed in this file: src/com/friendlyarm/SerialPortDemo/
Make changes according to your devices' names:

7.2.1 Serial Device Names under Multiple Platforms

  • Allwinner H3/H5 Based Boards (NanoPi M1/NanoPi M1 Plus etc)

UART1-> /dev/ttyS1
UART2 -> /dev/ttyS2
UART3 -> /dev/ttyS3 (Only applies to NanoPi M1, NanoPi K1 and NanoPi K1 Plus)

  • S5P4418 Based Boards (NanoPi Fire2A/NanoPi M2A/NanoPi S2/NanoPC-T2 etc)

UART1 -> /dev/ttyAMA1 [Note 1]
UART2 -> /dev/ttyAMA2 [Note 1]
UART3 -> /dev/ttyAMA3
UART4 -> /dev/ttyAMA4

  • S5P6818 Based Boards (NanoPi M3/NanoPC-T3 etc)

UART1 -> /dev/ttySAC1 [Note 1]
UART2 -> /dev/ttySAC2 [Note 1]
UART3 -> /dev/ttySAC3
UART4 -> /dev/ttySAC4

Note 1: only applies to specific boards, you need to check if a board has that serial device populated.

7.3 Step 3. Compile DEMO's source code and export apk file

On "Package Explorer" check your project's name:
On eclipse's main menu select "File" and then "Export...":
Select "Export Android Application":
Select "SerialPortDemo":
Eclipse requires you to create a new keystore or select an existing keysotre in this step. In this case we selected "Create new keystore", set a path to store the key and created its password and then clicked on "next":
Refer to the following screenshot to fill more information and click on "next":
Select a path to store your APK file. In this case we set it to a "signapk-files" directory:
Click on "Finish" to export an APK file.

7.4 Step 4. Give APK New Signature

For a program to access a hardware device that program needs to have "system" right therefore you need to give your APK a new signature.
Enter the signapk-files directory and give your APK a new signature:

cd signapk-files/
java -jar ./signapk.jar platform.x509.pem platform.pk8 ./SerialPortDemo.apk SerialPortDemo-Signed.apk

The "signapk.jar", "platform.x509.pem" and "platform.pk8" files are available under the "android-platform-key-files" directory.

7.5 Step 5 Run & Debug

5.1) Install APK. Connect your board to a host PC with a microUSB cable and run adb commands to install your "SerialPortDemo-Signed.apk":

adb install SerialPortDemo-Signed.apk

5.2) Debug: After SerialPortDemo is started run the following command in "adb shell":

ps -Z

Check this com.friendlyarm.SerialPortDemo" process. If its right is as follows that means this application already has "system" right:

u:r:system_app:s0              system    1610  112   com.friendlyarm.SerialPortDemo

This case is for Android 4. If you do it under Android 5 it will be as follows. Although some details are slightly different it means the application has "system" right as well:

u:r:platform_app:s0            u0_a60    1905  138   com.friendlyarm.SerialPortDemo

If your application doesn't have "system" right it will fail to open a device.
