Can the android emulator run on an ARM device

I need to do a lot of android testing where the device I use has to be ARM based. While it is possible to create these devices in the default android emulator they are of course very slow on my x86 development machine.

A lot of this testing runs headless and automatically so I thought about setting up an ARM server and emulate the devices there in the hope that the performance would be better. While looking around I realized that there is nearly no information about this. Is it possible to run an android emulator (ether the one provided with the SDK or any other) on a ARM machine to get higher performance for the virtual devices?

Why do you need emulator? Maybe use a device?

why arm? do you have some assembly language in your application?

you are probably better off just running it on a device.

@old_timer we run some third party apps that do not support x86. both: real devices would be an option but I'm looking for something that is easier & cheaper to scale
