Build on a platform that
plays well with others

Leading brands are relying on Esper Enhanced Android to drive digital transformation today. EEA gives our customers the freedom to leverage the full power of Android’s massive hardware ecosystem by applying our modern DevOps approach to device management and operations.

EEA can even extend the market viability of existing x86 and ARM hardware, helping our customers save on non-recurring engineering (NRE). EEA unlocks innovative new designs by lifting the burden of Android OS development and adaptation from internal teams and the supply chain.

Esper Enhanced Android works. No one else does x86 successfully today. Esper’s engineering staff made it easy to put Android on any x86 device. I was expecting it to take a lot of time to make EEA work the way we wanted it to. 

Out of the box, EEA worked extremely well, requiring only some minor fine-tuning. Pushing out EEA OTA made it so easy to deploy and update.

Rethink what’s possible
for your solutions

Esper Enhanced Android provides quality, customizability, and availability with continuous updates and optimization, turning yesterday’s challenges with hardware-focused OEMs into today's opportunities for custom devices.You get a professionally built and maintained Android OS that we can match directly to your target hardware configuration and required peripherals (for supported Esper target hardware designs).

Combined with the Esper platform, you get an unprecedented level of app management and fine-grained device configuration and that granularity persists from end to end, deployment to field.

Supported silicon and devices

Esper Enhanced Android is available for immediate deployment on a rapidly-increasing number of devices and form factors, and we’re working on adding new ones all the time.

Esper has 70+ partnerships with global leaders in the Android ecosystem. We have a family of ready-to-ship Esper Enhanced computers, smart displays, kiosks, and ruggedized devices.

If you are developing custom hardware or have an existing design you want to run EEA, we can work with you one on one to adapt EEA as a target. We also love reference designs, so if you have one in particular you want to use, we can work with your design shop, silicon vendor, or ODM to ensure EEA is ready-built for your fleet. Don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know what you’re trying to build.
