STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has introduced an upgrade to its Software Development Kit 2 (SDK2) that allows the development of Android-compliant devices and supports the latest Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) services for TV.

Currently, consumers can access Google services for TV by connecting a "buddy box" between the existing set-top box (STB) and TV. ST's new SDK2-Android v10.0 release will allow STB manufacturers to offer a simple solution that pre-integrates support for Google services for TV, combining OTT (over-the-top) content and traditional premium Pay-TV content, without requiring consumers to buy additional equipment.

The SDK2-Android v10 enables software development based on Android v4.2 (Jelly Bean). The development kit is now rolling out across ST's latest set-top box and home gateway processors, from the flagship STiH416 (Orly) to the recently introduced 'Cannes' (STiH3xx) and 'Monaco' (STiH407/STiH410/STiH412) families. The STiH416 fully supports the security requirements of Google services for TV and has passed the certification of the leading CA (Conditional Access) providers required to deploy any Pay-TV services in the world.
