Coming straight from the source we've no doubt that the DS-5 CE code can lead to more power-thrifty applications and software on Android devices, and hope that developers will take a long and hard look into it when compiling for ARM-based chipsets.

The kit lets you see processor-specific information, and includes its own graphics debugger. DS-5 CE is a plugin for Eclipse, and integrates with the Android SDK and NDK for those of you who into developing. Below is a video to help with the installation.
