The Advanced Development Zone is dedicated to prototype development. The zone is comprised of two high performance workstations, namely the CAD workstation and the Android/iOS app development workstation. The former is dedicated for CAD, simulation, and animation and the later is dedicated for application development.
The CAD workstation is a high performance workstation for graphic intense processes like video editing, game creation, fractal art, CAD and prototype development, etc. The workstation has the following configuration:
Intel® Xeon® Six Core Processor
Windows 7 enterprise
16GB (4x4GB) 2133MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC
NVIDIA® Quadro® K2200 4GB (2 DP, DL-DVI-I) (1 DP to SL-DVI adapter)
Dual 23’ WQHD monitors
wireless mouse and keyboard
Atom Text Editor
Microsoft office 2013
The Android Workstation
The Android workstation is dedicated for mobile application development, for coding and simulation.
Android is a mobile operating system (OS) currently developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. Android's source code is released by Google under open source licenses, although most Android devices ultimately ship with a combination of open source and proprietary software, including proprietary software required for accessing Google services.
