Mindroid. Secure and lightning-fast embedded software development.
Security as cross-cutting concern is designed into every aspect of the platform
A security-hardened Linux Kernel forms a rock-solid base
SecureBoot guarantees the integrity of the device software starting from a hardware root of trust up to the system partition
Mindroid is the epitome of modularity. Battle-tested and continously refined.
Mindroid Application Platform
- Over The Air UpdateRemote UnlockData Collector
Applications are the fundamental building blocks essential for creating real-world use cases. Instead of providing a monolith which is hard to handle, Mindroid applies a more efficient modularity.
Within Java, updates can be executed on application level
Applications are restricted in their access through a permission model
The Mindroid application structure allows for a more efficient development process due deconstruction of complexity

Mindroid offers a plethora of system services out of the box. All services developed within Mindroid are based on “classic” RPC-style communication with all interfaces being described using the Mindroid Interface Definition Language (MIDL).
API first design - service interfaces define public APIs
Every service is accessible from every runtime
Mindroid services can be reused across different projects
Mindroid offers three runtimes with different properties. All runtimes feature not only a service-based application model but also extensive and coherent SDKs.
C++ if you need maximum performance and control over resource consumption
Java if you need a secure environment for connected applications
Rust if you have special safety requirements
Mindroid Application Platform
Mindroid provides a service oriented application framework inspired by the Android application model.
Three different runtimes to build services and applications
Full interoperability of services and apps hosted in different runtimes
Application developers benefit from an extensive set of core libraries and system services
- Binder IPC
- DM Verity
- Wake Locks
Mindroid is based on a highly-customized, optimized, and security-hardened Linux Kernel.
To increase security, Mindroid applies a separation between executables and data. This means that the root file system is mounted read-only
With a strong optimization for size and speed, Mindroid Linux avoids unused and space-wasting libraries
The Linux user space is based on non GPL/LGPL licensed libraries to allow for easier and less tedious commercialization of systems built with Mindroid
From idea to prototype to application in high volume projects.
Make sure to contact us in case you have remaining questions.
What does full-stack software platform mean?
Mindroid provides a consistent, gapless stack of modules from bootloader to applications. This translates into less work and therefore faster development from concept to implementation.
Which communication protocols does Mindroid support?
MQTT, REST, SomeIP, and vendor-specific proprietary protocol implementations.
What are the runtime costs of applications?
Mindroid applications are meant to be event-based and should therefore not waste any resources in e.g. cyclic operations.
What are the conceptual differences between Adaptive AUTOSAR and Mindroid?
If you compare both application frameworks, Mindroid offers a defined rep-model and the interoperability between Java and C++ applications.
How does it compare to Android?
While Mindroid and Android share a conceptually similar application framework, Mindroid is headless and focuses on the development of embedded applications.
